African black soap has been used in Africa for the treatment of rashes, ring worm, eczema and also as a natural hair shampoo to avoid itchy and dry scalps.
Authentic Black Soap has a delicate texture and is softer than most soaps. You'll know that this is a true organic soap as when using it you'll notice the water runs with the color of the soap's natural saponified ingredients. Because it is soft and dissolves in water easily, the soap should be left to dry when not in use, preferably deposited in a slotted soap dish where it can drip dry. Avoid leaving it in water for extended periods of time (like during a bath) or it will become very soft. You may notice a thin white colored film develop over your soap inbetween use, this film is not mold, it is simply caused by the soaps absorption of water from the air. (As this is a pure product, you may find the occassional grit in it so rub into your hands first rather than straight onto the face or body).
Commercial versions of Black soap are produced outside Africa but not according to the pure recipes found in Africa. They are hard bars of soap and tend to be filled with artificial ingredients. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the benefits of pure black soap, be sure to buy the authentic product which is made in Africa.
