    Just wondering. Seems to be one of those things that people just accept without any thought. Ever wonder what exactly is in soap?.. and what cleans you?.. the soap.. or the water? ... and.. is it good for you?.. who owns soap?.. and what else do they own? It has to be a huge business.

    I stopped using store soap...it's like washing with detergent for clothes...It makes my skin super dry...and causes eczema on my skin. I use Black Soap straight from Africa. And I love it!!! I get like 2lbs and it lasts me 5 months and is only 10 bucks!
    Best thing I ever used on my skin.

    Yeah...I actually heard about it when I started to go natural...Black soap is good for hair all the way down to your toes.

    African Black Soap
    [​IMG]

    African natural black soap is one of the most healthful yet unheard of soaps you will find. This black soap contains more benefits for healthy skin than you can imagine. Read some of the information below and you will know why.
    All natural African black soap is made from dried plantain skins, palm leaves, cocoa pod powder, and kernel oil for an all-natural cleansing process. Plantains skins are largely what make this black soap so effective. It is a natural source of vitamins A & E and iron. When black soap is made, the skin of the plantain is dried under the sun and then roasted in a clay oven. The heat must be constant in order to achieve the perfect brownish black color, texture & smell. Afterwards, cocoa pod powder is added. Cocoa pod is the shell of the cocoa fruit and also has natural healing properties.

    If you can find a store that sells REAL African soap then you're good...But I always get mine online
    You can get it from this site
    http://africaimports.com/

    I get mine here:
    http://www.nasabb.com/Traditional-Black-Soap_c_16.html

    Whatever you do...I repeat make sure it's the real black soap...Places like drugstores and such sell black soap...and I made the mistake of getting it there and it didn't look like black soap at all...it made my skin extra dry and there was a white film it left.

    Black soap looks like the picture I posted.

    When you first use black soap...you'll notice your skin flaking off...but don't be alarmed...it only happens about 3 times...that's the top layer of skin dead skin that is being removed that regular soap leaves behind...after that your skin will glow and will be super soft and it won't happen again.
    I've been using black soap for almost 2 years and it only happened once like I said.
    It works great with Natural Shea Butter after a shower or bath...which you can also get on those sites.
