what makes African black soap black anyhow, and what am I going to get in this jar? Tradition has it that the first African black soap was invented by the Yoruban tribe of Nigeria. Although a few of the original ingredients have probably changed a little, the age-old method of producing true black African black soap remains the same.
Plantain peels, cocoa pods, camwood and palm kernels are roasted together in clay ovens. In order to make soap one must have oil and potash. The ashes of the pods and peels act as the potash, and the oil-rich kernels exude their oil right in the clay oven. The ashes are then broken down, packed, flown to Dulles Airport and then packaged in this convenient jar awaiting all your African black soap fantasies.
