People that use it, swear by it!!
Thousands of years ago black soap was introduced to the world, and since then it has proven its worth over time. Named after its colour, the black or brown or dark green colour appearance depends on the season of harvested oil used in its production.
Moroccan Black Soap, despite its name, is not really a soap, at least not in the traditional way.
It is a dark, creamy paste that is used all over the world to help rid the body of toxins and heal skin that has been ravaged by exposure to the sun, extreme cold, free radicals and more.
It is a completely natural substance that is derived from a mixture of argan oil, olive oil & crushed olives. It is then marinated with salt and vegetable potash, using the ancient art of cold saponification.

How to use black soap: (It can be used on your face and entire body)
Daily Use: Black soap is used the same way as any regular soap but generates very little foam. When using it, a little bit goes along way. Apply a small amount to your damp area of skin and massage in for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Rinse and moisturize.
Weekly Mask: Apply a small amount to your damp area of skin. Massage in for 1 minutes & leave on for 5 minutes. Use a damp Kessa Glove or wash cloth to massage black soap off. Rinse & moisturize.
*Do not worry if you see dark particles appear: it is simply dry dead skin coming off your body.
