African black soap is produced in several ways, using different ingredients. However, the core ingredients of black soap produced traditionally include native plants like shea tree bark, palm tree leaves, plantain skins or cocoa pods, and fats like palm oil, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and palm kernel oil. Black soap is produced with ingredients that make it excellent for reducing the appearance of acne scars, past skin wounds, and stretch marks. Shea butter helps repair skin tissues and boosts collagen production. Red palm oil has vitamin e and helps maintain healthy skin. The essential fatty acids in palm kernel oil, red palm oil, and coconut oil bolster the regeneration of skin cells to assist scars to fade out. Below is a simple procedure to make your own black soap for skin repair.



  • 1kg black soap 
  • 40g turmeric powder 
  • 40g cinnamon powder 
  • 40g shea butter

  • 10ml vitamin E oil 
  • 40ml glycerin 
  • Fragrance (optional)

  2. Pound the soap using a mortar (You can also use a heavy-duty mixer).

      Yes, it clears dark spot, acne scar and also rebirth the skin to a brighter and glowing state. Clear changes within 1 month of daily (morning & Night) use.
