Alaffia’s Authentic African Black Soap is likened to the home remedies of Togolese mamans. It’s made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted fair trade and unrefined, Shea butter and Orangutan-safe West African palm oil, and enhanced with hemp oil and olive leaf.
Saponification is reached by adding potash (made from plantains and leaves) to the hot oils, and then cooking it for six hours. The last step is curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle and effective cleanser that clarifies and softens skin.
This sulfate-free liquid soap is suitable for any skin type, even the most sensitive. Hemp Olive Leaf is a distinctive, pleasing earthy aroma with citrusy bright top notes and herbaceous olive leaf, true to the heart of the Mediterranean Sea.
