The African Black Soap Body Wash is blended with skin-soothing oatmeal to create a gentle foaming cleanser that detoxifies your skin without stripping its natural oils. This West African beauty staple is also known as Ose Dudu or Alata Samina. Used for centuries to cleanse, purify, and brighten dull skin.
- Beneficial. Provides deep cleansing of the skin and pores. Leaves skin clear, smooth, and supple. Brightens and tones complexion.
- Rice Bran Oil: Naturally protecting skin from UV rays, this powerhouse oil is deeply moisturizing due to its high fat and vitamin E content.
- Colloidal Oatmeal: good for multiple skin sensitivities, it works by attracting moisture to the skin and locking it in a protective barrier.
Why We Love It Most commercial soaps can strip skin of natural oils causing dryness and irritation. However, African Black Soaps are made with charcoal from roasted Cocoa Pods and Plantain Skins that are blended with Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to create a brown/black colored soap that hydrates and moisturizes sensitive, dry, and itchy prone skin.
How To Use It Apply a dime-size amount to wet hands, Shea Radiance’s Ayate WashCloth, or other loofah, and create a gentle lather. Use on your face, body, or hair and rinse thoroughly. Follow with Shea Radiance’s Whipped Shea Butter with Colloidal Oatmeal.
What To Know Charcoal binds to dirt and other impurities in your skin’s pores and pulls them right out without overdoing it. Charcoal was actually first used in hospitals and clinics for its detoxifying and purifying abilities before it was introduced to personal care products.
Ingredients: distilled water, charcoal (derived from cocoa & plantain pods), unrefined shea butter, coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, modified starch, oat flour, and lavender essential oil
