African Black soap is traditionally made in west Africa, typically Ghana. Black soap is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. First the leaves and bark are sun-dried and then roasted in a kettle or pot at an even, constant temperature, which is important to ensure color, texture and smell. Then water and various oils-palm oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil (including shea butter and cocoa pod powder) - are added to the mixture and stirred for at least a day. After that, the "soap" is left to set for two weeks to cure. INGREDIENTS: Saponified Virgin Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Saponified Palm Oil (Sodium palmate), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao).
