Our moisturising natural Black soap body wash has an earthy, natural aroma and is free of fragrance, parabens, and synthetic preservatives.  Formulated as an exceedingly mild cleanser for adults and children, our ingredients are as simple as they can be without leaving your skin dry or drained of moisture. This 3-in-1 complete body cleanser won't irritate or aggravate skin issues like eczema or psoriasis because it's made with a pared-back healing combination of traditional West African components including shea tree bark, palm tree leaves, plantain skins, and cocoa pods.

Because our soap is unprocessed, it keeps even more of its therapeutic powers.
