African black soap is made with a healthy mix of all-natural, local ingredients. The soap is traditionally made from the ash of freshly harvested plants and barks. These plants and barks include plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. After being harvested the leaves and bark are sun-dried. Then they are roasted in a kettle or pot at a constant temperature. Keeping a steady temperature while roasting is essential to ensure the proper color, texture and smell. After roasting the water is added. Along with the water various oils are added. Palm oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, shea butter cocoa pod powder are among the most popular oils. The mixture is then thoroughly stirred over the course of a day. After that day the soap must be set aside for two weeks in order to cure properly.
