The ingredients used to make this soap are all hand gathered from nature, by the families that make this soap. The soap is cooked over open fires, and the “potash” used to finish the soap comes from the fire pits. This makes it a truly handcrafted, all-natural soap! We pack our Liquid African Black Soap in a plastic bottle with a “flip back top” so it can easily be used in the shower. This version is made with the same delightful Frankincense blend used in the Shine and Rise Body Butter, though black soap does hold a traditional “soapy” scent that is mild. Its texture is like a “shower gel,” meaning it will still run through a pump, but it’s not a thin watery soap.
