BLACK SOAP  is popularly known  for having skin nourishing benefits due to an abundance of antioxidants.  The soap is made from the ashes of plantain skin, cocoa pod and palm leaves, and palm oil from leaves or kernels.   Some additional ingredients, depending on the makers of the soap, could be honey to soften skin and shea butter or cocoa butter for extra moisturizing properties (some black soap is more potent than others and can be drying).

There are a variety of  black soaps on the market today that provide the benefits listed below. One of my favorites is “Adez Lightning Black Soap” . I recommend it because it is made with certified organic ingredients, is all-natural and comes in a gel form , Buy from www.cleanwithatise.com
