African Black Soap is revered for its many skin and hair nourishing benefits.  Full of antioxidants, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and moisturizing properties, African Black Soap helps protect skin from free radical damage, improves skin tone, reduces inflammation and skin irritations.  African Black  Soap is enriched with vitamins A & E and is a natural humectant.  These properties make African Black Soap an excellent choice for dry, damaged, and thinning hair.  It nourishes the scalp and helps the hair retain moisture. 

African Black Soap is safe for all skin types.  However, it is important to note that African Black Soap my cause a tingling or tight sensation the first few uses.  It is said this is caused by the soap pulling toxins and impurities from the skin.  This sensation should go away after the first few uses or within a few days.  Please discontinue use if any skin irritation occurs.

Note:  To correctly use African Black soap, do not use the bar directly on skin, especially facial skin.  Liquefy African Black Soap prior to use, or take the soap apart and knead it into a ball to make sure there aren't any jagged edges.  Rub between hands to work into a lather.  You may also rub the soap into a cotton cloth and work into a lather.  If you apply the soap directly to the skin, do so gently.  African Black Soap may contain pieces of leaves or other small particles (such as splinters or small pebbles) that can potentially scratch the skin.   

If you have extremely sensitive or reactive skin, do not leave the soap on for a long period of time.  Rinsing with luke warm or cool water helps minimize any stinging or tingling affects.  

Because African Black Soap contains exfoliating properties, it is not necessary to scrub hard.  Work up a good lather and apply gently.  

If you break out into a rash, please consult your dermatologist.  If you have a latex allergy, or are sensitive to chocolate or caffeine, do not use African Black Soap.

African Black Soap absorbs water, so don't let it sit in a puddle of water after use.  Do not leave exposed, but place the bar on a wooden soap dish with slats to allow the soap to drain.  Make sure to leave unused soap in its packaging, or wrap in biodegradable cling wrap.  When exposed to air, African Black Soap can develop a thin white film.  This is not mold.  

Store African Black Soap in a cool dry place, securely wrapped when not in use.
