Black soap comes from plantain skin. It is natural source of vitamin A & E and iron. (Plantain is a popular food in Africa, South America & other parts of the world. It can be found in ethnic or international grocery stores such as Latino, Caribbean or African. It looks like banana but much bigger. It does not taste like a banana & has to be cooked before eating. The skin of the plantain is gingerly dried to be precise texture under the hot African sun. It is then roasted in a clay oven. The heat must be constant in order to achieve a particular color, texture & smell.
The next process is very delicate because if it is not done properly, with the right ingredients, there will be no soap. The roasted plantain skin is mixed with palm oil, palm kernel oil to form the soap. The roasting of the plantains determines the brownish-black color of the soap. The longer plantains are roasted, the darker the soap. Dr. Woods may be used by anyone who wishes to improve the quality of their skin.
It can also be used for cleaning!
This all natural soap is very affordable ($7.80 for 32 ounces!), and it does not contain sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates.
