Alaffia, "Our genuine African Black Soap is one of the healthiest soaps for the skin due to the purity and simplicity of the ingredients. In Togo, black soap is the only soap used by mothers to wash their newborn babies, as its purity makes it gentle and non-drying for their sensitive skin. Our black soap is hand made, using age-old traditional techniques from pure virgin oils. The ingredients of our African black soap are virgin palm kernel oil, pure, Certified Fair Trade unrefined shea butter and potash produced from the ashes of plantain leaves and bark from a local tree called Agow. The high percentage of shea butter is one of the unique features of our soap. Unscented for sensitive skin."
here) in the shower for a while, and love it so much that I decided to buy the bar soap version as well. The Shea Butter makes this a very moisturizing soap, and as such it a great choice at my bathroom sink because it keeps my hands soft and moisturized. It is also wonderful in the shower, and I am particularly fond of using it for shaving. I chose the unscented version, which means that it contains no essential oils for scent, making it perfect for people with sensitive skin.
Overall assessment: Fantastic company, fantastic soap, and a fantastic price.
