Receiving both Fairtrade certification (from the Fairtrade Foundation) and organic status (from the Soil Association) in 2009, our Akoma African Black Soap from
Ghana is prized for it's natural healing properties. This Fairtrade Organic Black Soap is full of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and has a mild, fresh, natural scent. Plus, it's wonderful creamy lather of fine bubbles leaves your skin clean and refreshed.
Traditionally made, this soap contains raw shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil and cocoa pods a perfect combination for treating all kinds of skin conditions. Its colour comes from the processing of its natural ingredients and like all Akoma products, it is free from dyes, charcoal, artificial perfumes, animal products and derivatives (which makes it a favorite for vegans).
When purchasing black soap, make sure it's from western Africa and not made in the
United States or
Europe. Soaps from these countries are mass produced and not true African Black Soap (they contain artificial ingredients that give them their dark colouring).
