It removes all dirt and toxins (sweat, sebum), and removes dead skin. That is why it is suitable for skin and facial scrub.

But first, remember. Why is black soap so special? Yes, it has already been said.
It is made in a totally natural way.
Even though there are different kinds, the basic process of making black soap comes from Morocco.
This is olive oil mixed with black olives crushed and macerated in salt and potash.

Today, black soap can be made with other essential oils.

The different types of black soap
Many wonder which black soap to buy. It is true that there are different types, depending on the origin and the manufacturing ingredients. It is therefore appropriate to know which black soap to choose.
But beware! Never confuse black body and face soap, also known as cosmetic black soap, with household black soap.
The latter is usually in liquid or pasty form and allows to clean the floor and any other surface.
Now, here are the different cosmetic black soaps that exist.
Thus, you could easily make your choice!
• The black soap of Morocco: it is the cosmetic black soap originating in Morocco.
It is used in middle eastern countries, Tunisia and all other Maghreb countries.

• The black soap of West Africa meanwhile, is a little different.
Coming mainly from Ghana, hence its name, black soap from Ghana, and even if made from natural ingredients, this black soap contains shea extracts, cocoa, banana leaf peels, or even vegetable ash.
However, African black soap from Ghana also has as many benefits for the skin as Moroccan black soap.
How to use black soap for healthy and glowing skin?
Cosmetic black soap can be used for the face (taking care to avoid the periphery of the eyes) and the whole body.
Thanks to its moisturizing, anti-wrinkle and nourishing functions, black soap is an excellent shower gel.
Usually in pasty form, black soap is also an extraordinary exfoliant.
Even though it does not contain grains, it is used in the form of a scrub to rid the skin of toxins and dead skin.
And to accentuate the exfoliating action, Moroccan women use a kessa glove or an African bath net of vegetable origin.
Which we also recommend by the way. There is no better way to make your skin beautiful, soft and glowing! Pure pleasure.
