Black Soap’s original recipe came from the neighboring country of Nigeria who had for a long time used coconut, palm, and Shea Butter in their Soaps. Workers from Ghana took this receipt back to their country and began to play with the formula. The villagers found that the pods discarded from cocoa production could be used in the lye process and altered the recipe to create “Black” Soap, allowing them to further utilize the waste in a productive manner. The Soap is now made from raw Shea Butter, virgin coconut oil and cocoa pods. That’s it. Plain, simple, and deliciously good for your skin.
