What It’s Like to Use African Black Soap

If it’s your first time using this soap you might notice that your skin feels dryer and tighter, even if you normally have oily skin. Typically this reaction will only last a week. It is thought to occur in some people because the soap is drawing impurities out of your skin. Once the PH level of your skin balances out the tight, dry feeling will go away.

Some people also find that African Black soap makes their skin tingle, but like the tight, dry feeling this should resolve itself in a week. If you normally have sensitive skin it’s a good idea to test the soap out on a small area of your body to see if you have a reaction.

Ways to Use African Black Soap

As Your Regular Body Soap

African Black Soap is excellent to use as your normal everyday body, face, and hand soap. In fact, many people choose to replace their old soap for Ninon’s African Black Soap. 

To Make Homemade Body Wash

If you prefer body wash over bar soap you can dissolve the soap in purified water and use it as a body wash. All you need to do is allow it to soak long enough that it liquefies. Then store it in a bottle with a pump. 

As an Exfoliant

African black soap is often used as a deep cleanser due to its exfoliating properties. If you want to use it this way, just be sure not to rub too hard to avoid irritating your skin. 

To Make Homemade Body Scrub

To make a homemade body scrub with African Black soap simply mix black soap with brown or white sugar and use it as a scrub. Simply dissolve the soap the same way you should for making body wash and add the sugar. Be sure to shake the bottle or stir the container before each use.  

Storing African Black Soap

In order to ensure you get the most life out of your African black soap it’s important to make sure you’re storing it properly. Since African black soap contains a high amount of glycerin the soap can soften and slowly disintegrate if left exposed. 

For this reason, it’s important not to allow it to sit in a puddle after use. Be sure to keep it dry in order to prevent it from dissolving. Storing the bar on a wooden soap dish is recommended.

It’s also important to understand the African Black Soap can develop a thin white-colored film when exposed to the air. This is not mold and does not affect the quality of your soap.
