African Black Soap Benefits
Nubian Heritage African Black Soap utilizes a popular West African type of soap made with ash, which makes the soap black in color. Also simply known as black soap, African Black Soap is traditionally used for its antimicrobial properties to help purify, cleanse, and detoxify problem skin. People use it for skin issues such as acne, breakouts, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, oily skin, dull complexion, and even to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Nubian Heritage’s African Black Soap Bar provides deep cleansing and exfoliation with the addition of natural, cruelty-free ingredients like hydrating Shea Butter, soothing Oats, skin nourishing Vitamin E, and skin calming Aloe. The ash in this black soap is sourced from Cocoa Pod Ash and it helps to minimize the appearance of blemishes, scars, and other skin imperfections. This detoxifying and skin balancing bar soap will reveal radiant, more youthful-looking skin.

    Soothing & Hydrating African Black Soap Bar
    African Black Soap (also known as Anago Soap or Alata soap) is a time-tested cleansing and detoxifying soap formula made with ash. This problem skin remedy has been used for centuries in Africa and is now gaining popularity all over the world. Nubian Heritage’s African Black Soap Bar combines the basic traditional black soap recipe with skin nourishing, plant-based, botanical ingredients for extra softening and conditioning. Your delicate, sensitive skin will experience antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that can help heal minor skin irritations. The gentle exfoliation from Oats in this Black Soap Bar buffs away dead, dull, dry skin and leaves your skin glowing. You can use it for face and body and it works just as well for problem skin, blemishes, and acne as it does for normal skin, delicate and sensitive skin, and oily, greasy, or even dry skin.

    African Black Soap for Acne
    Black soap has been used for centuries in Africa for all kinds of skin conditions. One of the most common uses for Nubian Heritage African Black Soap is acne treatment. It is able to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, heal minor skin irritations, and provide the deep cleansing needed to help treat and prevent acne. During the acne cycle, pores get clogged with dirt, debris, toxins, and impurities. Then, the skin responds with inflammation, soreness, redness, and infection. This creates sebum imbalance, excess oil, whiteheads, blackheads, acne cysts, and facial scarring. Once one pimple heals, two more seem to show up in its place! African Black Soap can help your skin begin to recover and heal. The ash in black soap helps diminish the appearance of acne scars. Its antimicrobial effect helps remove the unwanted bacteria that worsen your already irritated and agitated delicate facial skin. African Black Soap Bar can be used for facial cleansing and on the body every day to help treat acne breakouts and eliminate the risk of future breakouts. Your skin will feel more balanced, hydrated, comfortable, and clean.

    Is African Black Soap Good for Eczema?
    African Black Soap is an excellent beauty and treatment tool for sufferers of eczema, psoriasis, rashes, skin allergies, and all kinds of other skin ailments! It’s soothing, nourishing, hydrating, and balancing for skin. With many chronic skin problems like eczema and psoriasis, skin gets itchy, inflamed, and scaly. While the ash in black soap helps skin feel more comfortable, Nubian Heritage’s African Black Soap goes the extra mile by adding Oats for gentle, skin calming exfoliation too. This action can alleviate the irritated, dry skin that can compound the discomfort caused by the skin condition. Plus, African Black Soap is a wonderfully natural way to treat your eczema and other skin issues in contrast to the steroid creams usually provided by dermatologists and doctors. It’s a more affordable skin treatment, too! Some people claim it’s completely eliminated their occurrence of eczema flare-ups. Others believe it simply helps. Try Nubian Heritage African Black Soap to see if it works for your skin condition. It’s one of the best black soaps available because of its additional natural ingredients and added skin benefits. Aloe, Oats, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Pod Ash, and Shea Butter all work in unison to soothe and heal troubled, dry, damaged skin.

    Relative to other brands, this is a superior soap. Within the Nubian Heritage brand, it ranks at the top. A very good soap that gives a good bath/shower without leaving a soap film or drying your skin.

    I LOVE this product and I highly recommend this soap. In fact, I have given it as gifts to my family and friends and they all love it as well. My skin is smoother, healthy looking, and it really does help heal skin imperfections. It cleared up my acne and goose bumps in less then a month of use. Also it smells really nice. I also LOVE the lotion-smooth silky and yummy for my skin. Awesome products!

    This was my first time using black soap for my face, and I think it has been working pretty well. I have acne, it isn't bad, but I am trying to clear my face, and with the black soap, I have been seeing some improvements. My face is brighter, it doesn't dry out my skin, and from the short period I have been using it, I think it is helping with my acne. I use it along with coconut oil.
