HISTORY OF AFRICAN BLACK SOAP:

Black soap was introduced to Ghana many years ago by Yoruba traders of Nigeria doing business in Ghana.

These traders were women and many were in the business of selling tomatoes and peppers. They were called the Alatas (Pepper Sellers).

The Yoruba Word Ose Mean SOAP ‎and Dudu mean‎ BLACK‎ this was translated to “THE BLACK SOAP.” It is also called ANAGO‎ SAMINA by ‎Ghanaians which ‎means the Pepper Sellers soap. “Anago” is a slang term in Ghana used to refer to Yoruba Nigerians.

Anago means Yoruba. Alata: A term commonly used to describe Nigerians, to their great displeasure as it means pepper seller in their language. (Derived from the Yoruba language)

Samina means, “Soap” in the Twi Dialect of the Akan Language.‎

This made the Ghanians call Black Soap Alata Samina Which Simply Mean Pepper Seller Soap.

Alata samina, is now the Word used throughout Ghana to Refer to Black Soap.‎
Yoruba women had an important and unique role in agriculture in pre-colonial Yoruba land.

They were responsible for processing raw farm produce into finished goods for trading.

This included harvesting produce from trees and they also tended to the gardens where vegetables and fruits, such as peppers, were grown.

They were also responsible for selling the produce, including Black soap and Shea nuts.
Nigerians especially the Yorubas and Ghanaians have used black soap for centuries for bathing and for reducing body odor.
It was, and still is till today, used as first Soap Used in bathing New Born Baby by the Yoruba people, they mix the Black Soap with Camwood Powder (Osun) to bath the Baby Because it Cleanse off Everything on newborn Skin like MAGIC, its purity makes it gentle and non-drying for babies’ sensitive skin.

African Black Soap is handcrafted and made with ingredients sourced from western Africa, specifically Nigeria or Ghana.
It’s free of chemicals like parabens, sulfates, artificial fragrances, and preservatives.

Below are the main ingredients that usually make up pure black soap (although other natural ingredients might be added for extra nourishing properties):

Shea butter: (karite butter) made from the nuts of the karite tree, also has vitamins A and E to strengthen skin and repair damage. It has been used to heal burns, sores, and scars, and to treat psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. It helps promote cell renewal and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. It is also a good for treatment of acne scars because it is non-comedogenic and has anti-microbial properties. This is usually the base of the soap and gives it cleansing and moisturizing properties.

Palm kernel oil: is extracted from the fruit seeds of the African palm tree. It is high in lauric acid, giving it anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. This is a moisturizing and skin-balancing ingredient.

Cocoa pods or plantain leaves: These are cooked until they turn into ash or charcoal, which not only gives the soap its dark hue, but also detoxifies and exfoliates skin, and adds antioxidants to neutralize free radical damage.

Cocoa powder softens and firms the skin, contains antioxidants, and has anti-inflammatory properties to fight against free radicals, repair damaged skin, and renew skin cells.

Cocoa butter is a natural fat extracted from the cacao bean. It’s been used for years as a moisturizer. It has vitamins A and E to fight against environmental damage and therefore fight the signs of aging. It helps the skin retain moisture and improves elasticity. Cocoa butter is also said to improve the appearance of stretch marks. It has also been used to ease skin conditions like rashes, eczema, and psoriasis.

Coconut oil has fatty acids that work to reinforce the skin’s lipid barrier and lock in moisture. Coconut oil is also helpful for repairing skin damage, dry skin and eczema, and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It has cleansing and antibacterial properties, which makes it useful for removing grime and makeup, and, when combined with other ingredients, it works as a natural deodorant. This is often added to nourish the skin.
