  • As with all natural skin care we caution the following.

    Skin Sensitivity: It's a good idea to do a patch test before using a natural product extensively on your face or body.

    Individual Variability: Everyone's skin is different, and what works for one person may not work the same for another. Some individuals might see significant improvements in their skin while others might not experience the same effects.

    Consistency: Skincare products require consistent and long-term use to see noticeable results. It's important to be patient and give the product time to work.

    Know your skin: Before using any new skincare product, especially if you have sensitive skin or existing skin conditions, it's a good idea to consult with a dermatologist. They can provide personalized advice based on your specific skin type and concerns.

  • Step-by-Step Instructions:

    1. Patch Test

    • Purpose: Ensure you do not have any allergic reactions.
    • How: Apply a small amount of soap to a small area of your skin (e.g., inner arm or behind the ear). Rinse after a few minutes and wait 24 hours. If no irritation occurs, you can proceed with regular use.

    2. Preparation

    • Cut a Small Piece: African black soap can be potent. Cut a small piece from the bar to use, storing the rest in a cool, dry place.
    • Lather Up: Wet your hands and rub the soap between them to create a lather. Avoid applying the raw bar directly to your skin to prevent irritation from its rough texture.

    3. Initial Use (First Week)

    • Frequency: Start by using the soap once every three days.
    • Duration: Limit the contact time to 30 seconds to one minute.


    • Wet your face or body with lukewarm water.
    • Apply the lathered soap gently in circular motions.
    • Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
    • Pat dry with a soft towel.
    • Apply a gentle moisturizer immediately after.

    4. Gradual Increase (Following Weeks)

    • Frequency: Gradually increase usage to every other day if your skin tolerates it well.
    • Duration: You can slowly increase the contact time to 1-2 minutes.

    5. Regular Use (After Initial Phase)

    • Frequency: Once your skin adjusts, you can use the soap daily.
    • Duration: Leave the lather on for up to 3 minutes, depending on your skin’s tolerance.

    Tips for Use:

    • Moisturize: Always follow up with a moisturizer to prevent your skin from drying out.
    • Sensitive Areas: Avoid using the soap around the eyes and other sensitive areas.
    • Storage: Keep the soap in a dry place to prevent it from dissolving quickly.
    • Spot Treatment: For problematic areas like acne spots, you can leave the lather on those areas for a bit longer before rinsing.
