Benefits Of African Black Soap by mrskincare(m): 6:00pm On Feb 25, 2013
Is black soap worth all the hype?
Is black soap causing magiic?
On our skin, absolutely yes.
I repeat. Absolutely YES
Black soap is worth all the hype and attention.

Ose Dudu, commonly called African Black Soap is ranked high on the ‘might cause magic’ list alongside Harry Potter and David Blaine for no other reason than it kicks some major clean Bottom.
While the recipe varies, ABS is handmade from the ashes of cocoa pods, shea tree bark and plaintain leaves and mixed with various soothing and healing oils such as shea butter, palm oil and coconut oil, creating its deliciously distinct aroma.  And don’t let it’s appearance fool you — although dark brown and crumbly in texture, this African-born skin miracle will become a staple in your cleansing routine.

It’s benefits are awesome and severely underrated, so we’re shouting them from the rooftops.  Here’s why ABS is so amazing:

It’s suitable for all skin types.  Whether you’re skin is a dry gulch or an oil-monger (or somewhere perfectly in between), black soap is well advised. If you’re on the oily side of the coin, regular use will help remove additional oils from the skin thus preventing the formation of pimples

It’s a super cleanser.  Well of course, it’s soap, duh.  But wait — there’s more.  The charcoal in ABS can help absorb body odors and bacteria, while its formula is gentle enough for makeup removal.

It’s soothing + healing.  This double whammy is perhaps the most notable.  If you suffer with rashes or skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, the ashes in black soap helps reduce irritation and can even be used by people with sensitive skin.  While ABS cannot remove acne, since that is caused by the release of excessive oils within the skin rather than dirt buildup, it can reduce the appearance of acne scars.

It’s a fountain of youth.  Awaiting applause….  Yes, ABS may help you turn back the hands of time.  This gentle exfoliant may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin discolorations that indicate the early signs of aging skin.
And because i love you, I encourage you to use black soap.

Are you trying African Black Soap for the first time?  Already a fan?  Let us know what miracles you’re finding.
I'm waiting....

I totally LOVE black soap. I usually get some from Amazon for my hair. I use it to cleanse my hair every month or so.

I also used it to combat pimples and spots in the past. It's a really good skin exfoliant.

Op, pls can this soap make me GREEN in complexion?? Am tired of yellow or black complexion.
Re: Benefits Of African Black Soap by feminineA: 5:59pm On Feb 27, 2013
Have been using black soap like forever. Love it so much. I use dudu osun too but I love the natural one yet to be mixed. Then I mix it with coconut oil and shea butter.

For the lady complainning of the melting nature of dudu osun, get a bowl and put the soap in so even if it melt you can still use the melted liquid to take your bath

That soap dried out my skin. Like literally.

I had to switch to dove.

No thanks. Unless the manufacturers can add a moisturising agent (aloe) to it's ingredients, I no do.

I like my soft, supple skin.

Same here. It made my skin insanely dry so I switched back to dove but still used the black soap on my face, till all my pimples cleared.

Now, I only use it for my hair and it works well.
Re: Benefits Of African Black Soap by sleekman(m): 6:30pm On Feb 27, 2013
Na which kind advert for Dudu Osun soap be this. Na black soap d OP talk O! If u want the smell of black soap to be different then get some bottles of perfumes. Put the black soap in a bowl, pour some perfume and mix with ur hand as if ure mixing dough. Mix thoroughly and make sure u cover it.

Alternatively, if you want to create your own signature smell. Browse through the net for flowers that have pleasant smells. In the case of flowers, blend them in a blender with very little water. Then squeeze out the liquid. Boil until its oily. Then mix the oil with the black soap.
