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.
