Beauty Secrets Black Soap (Alatasamina) 350g



African black soap, or black soap (also known by various local names such as ose dudu, sabulun salo and ncha nkota), is a kind of soap originating in West Africa. It is made from the ash of locally harvested African plants and dried peels, which gives the soap its characteristic dark colour. Black soap has become a popular toilet product in North America. In West Africa, especially Ghana, black soap is often made by women using traditional recipes and is often exported through fair trade groups.

Black soap, known as ose-dudu originated with the Yoruba people of Nigeria, West Africa. A combination of ose-dudu with leaves of the tropical camwood tree (Pterocarpus osun) produces a popular kind of soap with exfoliating properties called dudu-osun. Other varieties from other cultures include sabulun saloncha nkota.

Black soap has been found to have some antimicrobial properties against skin microbiota such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.
