We simply love these African Black Soaps by Alaffia - talk about multi-purpose.... they're an all-in-one body wash, shampoo, shaving soap and more - hand crafted, no synthetic fragrances or nasties - you'll be hooked on this range before you know it.
AU $15.95
In West Africa, authentic black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Osse Dudu - "Dudu" means the colour black, which comes from extensive "cooking" of the soap to the point of charcoal. Many cultures in West Africa use charcoal to detoxify and purify the skin. This is an integral aspect of true African black soap.

Alaffia's authentic black soaps are made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted Shea Butter and West African Palm Kernel Oil (Orangutan safe and sustainably produced). Sapoinification is provided by added ashes to the hot oils, then cooking the soap for six hours - the last step is drying and curing the soap in the sun for three weeks, resulting in a gentle hand and body wash for all ages.
  • Multi-purpose - can be used as a facial cleanser, body wash, shampoo, hand soap, shaving soap and general household cleanser
  • Cruelty-free and Fair Trade - 74% of all ingredients are Fair Trade Certified
  • Paraben and SLS free - No synthetic fragrances
  • Non-GMO
  • Biodegradable
For skin and body care products they are developed sustainably and with a purpose of giving back to the local communities and the environment, you can't go past Alaffia. They pay fair wages to members of their Shea Butter Cooperative in Togo, Africa - funds from this and other Alaffia products help conduct a number of empower projects. Since 2006, Alaffia has empowered over 5,300 students in Togo with bicycles. This enabled them to stay in school and complete their education. Alaffia also fund Maternal Care, Reforestation and School Supplies projects.
