The allatonin within Black Soap helps renew and regenerate skin cells which helps to reduce scarring, blemishes and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Care and Storage of Black Soap
Because of it’s naturally occurring high glycerin content, Black Soap absorbs moisture from the air. This helps retain moisture on the skin leaving it soft and supple. However because of this, the soap can soften when left sitting in water for a long period of time. We recommend not to let the Black Soap bar sit in water after use, place bar on a soap dish to allow the soap to drain and dry. Pieces of the soap can also be broken off and the remaining bar can be kept in a plastic bag until more pieces are needed. This will result in a longer lasting bar of soap.

This soap is excellent.
I can't think of another cleansing soap that works as well as this does. Completely natural ingredients. A cleansed feeling after every use.
Usually I am not the kind of guy who writes review on products but for the "black soap" I really felt the need to...
....What can I say? Just a great product!...
At first I had my doubts about the All Natural soap until it did prove me wrong.. First time ever used I felt immediately my skin different to other on market soaps:
- Firstly doesn't leave you skin dry
- Secondly it does a brilliant job to keep your skin feeling fresh and clean
- Thirdly the soap waste doesn't harm the environment which it is a plus seen that the world we are living in is partly destroyed by our chemicals.
£5.00 well spent. Can't do without it.
Only a word of advise: Buy a soap dish....
This soap lathers up really well and you can feel the moisturiser getting to work straight away. I thought at first it seemed rather expensive .WRONG !!! Compared to other soaps it lasts weeks longer and there are no hidden nasties.I love it!
Really like this soap. As someone who has oily skin and suffers with hormonal breakouts it has been amazing. Though it sadly doesn't stretch to working magic on the hormones and stopping the painful under the skin spots, it has definitely helped reduce the irritation and discomfort, meaning they go away quicker as I don't try and use 100 other products on them which usually then causes more irritation. Greatly reduced my oily skin, had a couple of days of dry skin as I used an oil free moisturiser as well, but you just need to swap to a normal moisturiser and no problems. Really like it as a body wash too as it doesn't dry my skin out like other store bought shower gels.
It wasn't so good as a shampoo for me as I have fine hair, and after using it (condition your hair like normal) it felt like there was still a sticky coating on it. Saying that the sticky coating was amazing at taming my fly aways and when I put my hair up it kept the style much better than just trying to use hair spray, so I would consider using it as a shampoo prior to putting my hair up for a night out or event.
Definitely worth trying this product, and excellent value for what you get (I cut my bar into quarters and am still using the first quarter 6 weeks later with daily use).
