Hi and thank you for checking out Dr share body butter blog. The first time I used black soap I was immediately amazed at how clean it left my skin feeling. If squeaky-clean is a word then that’s how it was, I literally rub my fingers together and you could hear the squeak, that clean.
Even after shaving you can feel the tingling sensation, cleaning open pores and removing dirt from under the surface of the skin.
Washing hair with black Soap helps remove dirt and strengthens hair frolics, reduces split ends and conditions hair back to its natural state.
A natural organic solution from head to toe and everything in between, black soap is the ultimate beauty buy for those on a budget.
A one-size-fits-all approach to flawless skin & hair!
Unlike the synthetic soaps, you find at the drugstore, authentic African black soap is handmade from plant-based ingredients in Africa. Each fair-trade purchase supports sustainable production and benefits communities in need.
Natural antibacterial properties make African black soap an excellent alternative to chemical-laden cleansers. In fact, it can remove more bacteria than chemical cleansers do. Despite its strength, black soap is gentle enough to use on your face, hands, and body.
2. Safe on all skin types.
If you have dry or sensitive skin, you know that scented soaps and lotions are off-limits. African black soap is naturally fragrance-free. People with oily or combination skin are also in the clear! Black soap can help balance your skin’s natural oil production without stripping necessary oils or adding excess oil to your skin.
Shea butter is a crucial ingredient in black soap. While Shea can help relieve itchiness and soothe dry skin, cocoa, and coconut oil add moisture.
4. Oily skin.
If you have combination skin, this makes choosing the right soap that much easier. Shea may add moisture, but coconut oil may help prevent overactive oil glands.
5. Soothe irritation.
African black soap may also soothe itchiness and irritation caused by eczema, dermatitis and other skin allergies. It can even help clear rashes related to eczema and psoriasis. To maximize these benefits, use black soap and Dr Shea body butter daily.
Black soap is rich in vitamins A and E. These vitamins are both antioxidants, which help combat free radicals and attacks on otherwise healthy skin tissues. This may be helpful for people who have inflammatory conditions like rosacea.
7. Fight acne.
On that note, black soap may also help fight acne. In addition to balancing your skin’s natural oils, the soap’s shea content may help repair damaged cells. Its antimicrobial properties may even clear severe acne caused by Propionibacterium acnes bacteria.
8. Reduce fine lines.
Shea butter and coconut oil may help reduce collagen loss and encourage new development. In turn, this can help plump up fine lines and wrinkles. The rough texture of the soap can also exfoliate dead skin cells that make fine lines more noticeable.
9. Protect against photo-aging.
Antioxidants found in shea butter can help protect your skin from photoaging. Over time, sun exposure can cause sunspots (age spots), but black soap may offer another barrier.
10. Improve skin texture.
African black soap is chock-full of natural ingredients, but part of its benefits come from its form. When left unprocessed, the raw ingredients that make up black soap leave the product far less smooth than the average drugstore soap bar. This makes it a natural exfoliant, which may help improve skin texture.
11. Prevent razor burn and related rashes.
Exfoliation is another key factor in keeping your skin smooth after shaving, waxing, or other methods of hair removal. Exfoliating will help remove dead skin cells before they can clog your hair follicles. The moisture in African black soap may also help prevent the lumps and bumps that result from razor burn.
12. Reduce hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is often caused by acne scarring and sun damage — two things that African black soap may help soothe or prevent.
13. Minimize the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Using Dr Shea body butter and black soap will help reduce the redness and overall appearance of stretch marks and other scars. It may also help minimize related itchiness.
