Black soap is renowned for its natural healing properties and is used in the treatment of various skin conditions.

The benefits of our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap

Renowned for its health benefits, our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap is one of the healthiest soaps for the skin due to the purity and simplicity of the ingredients which are loaded with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  The soap cleanses while moisturising the skin with its nourishing balance of ingredients.

The soap has a mild, fresh, natural scent and a wonderful creamy lather of fine bubbles which leaves skin beautifully clean and refreshed.

What does our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap contain?

Traditionally made, the soap contains raw shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil and cocoa pods.  Its colour is due to the natural ingredients it is made from and our product is free from dyes, charcoal, artificial perfumes, animal products and animal derivates and it is therefore, also suitable for vegans.

Who should use our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap?

Everyone can use our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap. It is especially designed to be sensitive to skin and provide moisturising action without drying out the skin. It is a great soap for all ages from 0 to 100 years old!

What can you use our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap for?

Removal of cosmetics: our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap is a wonderful alternative to expensive products which rely on chemical additives and foaming agents to remove your make-up. Our soap will even work on waterproof cosmetics.

Cleansing:  our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap foams into a rich lather with fine bubbles which penetrate the skin to remove any dirt and oil that if left will clog your pores. The lather cleanses while enriching the skin with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Gentle Exfoliation: our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap delivers a deep cleansing experience that exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal radiant, clean, fresh and healthy skin.  Our product provides a deep cleansing exfoliate but it is gentle enough to use on your face while restoring moisture balance  and shine.  Leave the lather on your face or body for  just a couple of minutes and then rinse with plenty of water. Repeat a couple of times a week and watch your skin take on a radiant youthful glow.

Shaving: our Fairtrade Organic Black Soap is fabulous for shaving. Simply apply to your skin to create a rich foamy lather and then shave for a really smooth finish. Our product is suitable for men and women and men alike.

Can black soap be used to clean make up brushes?

I've been using your black soap for a while now and can't believe how much my skin has changed, it's clear for the first time in about 20 years. I just wanted to let you know I also use it to clean my make up brushes, thought it might be a bit of interesting feedback ????
Keep up the good work ????

  1. Highly recommended!!

    by on

    I have been using Akoma since I was 18. I was searching for something that could treat my acne and because my skin is very sensitive, I wanted a natural product that wouldn't be too harsh on my face. I found this company and their black soap is amazing! I use it alongside their shea butter as a moisturiser and the combination is the best thing ever. Have not found anything like it - my face loves!!
