African Black soap has long been praised for its miraculous curative effects on acne. After I came across some in my local health food shop/yoga centre I couldn’t wait to try it.
African Black soap is suitable for all skin types and can be used as a replacement for your ordinary face wash. I was skeptical as to how affective a soap could be on my skin. I never really think that my cleanser has any effect on my skin, because we wash it right off! But after a week I can definitely see some positive changes in my skin. My breakouts are less frequent, my scars are faded, and my skin is so soft.
It has a different effect on everyone, and each batch is unique. Therefore you cannot predict how your skin will react. It can be too drying on some skin and it can even burn, so its a good idea to test it on a small part of your skin before you rub it all over your face. Some people like to cut the raw soap with other ingredients such as shea butter to make it easier on the skin.
As well as being great for acne, it is full of antioxidants, it helps fade discolouration, it is healing and has even been known to be great for exzema and psoriasis. It is definitely worth trying.
