African Black Soap and Age Old Ingredients
An amazing natural skin product that is available on the market today has been made in Africa for centuries. Black Soap is recommended for both the young and the old. This amazing product is traditionally made in west Africa, typically in Ghana, from secret recipes. Black soap is known by many names, but the most common is Ose Dudu (doudoun), which comes from the Yoruba or Anago languages of Nigeria, Togo and Benin. The soap is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. Black Soap is NOT black and does not have a uniform color. Black Soap is so highly thought of, it is also used in African spiritual purifications.
Dudu-Osun soap which is the age-long African black soap made the traditional way by hand from pure natural ingredients and herbs from the tropical rain forest and savannah regions. Dudu Osun soap is specially formulated entirely from natural ingredients and herbs, this soap will have you feeling refreshed and silky smooth. Dudu osun is pretty strong too, it works fast for pimples but dries the hell out of my skin, that’s why shea butter is good to use after.
This naturally made product is gentle enough for the tiniest babies. Another great use for this incredible skincare product is for hair care.
