Stopped by Kumasi Market today to pick up some some raw black soap and shea butter.
I purchased both the refined and unrefined.
I'm planning to mix it with my shea butter lotion with some olive oil.

Shea Butter benefits include:
•Evens skin tone & returns luster to skin & hair.
•Absorbs quickly without leaving greasy residue like petroleum, beeswax or mineral oil based products.
•Shea Butter moisturizes & protects skin & scalp Especially over processed & heat-treated hair.
•Shea Butter doesn't clog pores & block hair shaft.
•Revitalizes, softens & maintains skin moisture.
•Naturally rich in vitamins A, E & F which are some essential vitamins needed for good skin balance.
•Shea Butter penetrates deep into skin to help restore elasticity.
•Shea Butter benefits your skin by keeping it clear & smooth.
•Shea butter benefits include soothing some scalp & skin irritations.

Unrefined Shea Butter is naturally rich in a number of vitamins.
Vitamins A, E, & F are the most popular.Vitamin A & E -  Balances and normalizes the skin.
Helps keep it clear and healthy.Particularly beneficial for dry or sun-exposed skin.
Vitamin A has soothing and hydrating properties.
They provide healthy skin collagen which prevents premature wrinkles, premature facial lines and premature slackened skin.Vitamin F - acts as a skin protector and revitalizer. It soothes rough, dry or chapped skin on contact and helps soften and revitalize dry or damaged hair. Vitamin F consists of linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids, the three essential fatty acids.

I mentioned in a previous post, that I use black soap with my Microdermabrasion system...the results I get are amazing.
If you're someone that wears alot of make up I would definitely recommend black soap as a deep cleaning facial cleanser.
You won't be disappointed BELIEVE ME!
Also if you have oily combination skin this is the product for you,because it removes every ounce of oil and dirt from your body. :)

African Raw Black Soap is soft with an organic shape. It has a delicate texture and a natural, earthy smell. It is not oily, and can be used for hands, face, body and hair.

Black soap is great as a shampoo it really gets the hair and scalp clean.
The only problem I had was,it making my hair super thick,which is not necessarily a bad thing but if you have thick hair already it can be a bit much.

It is most commonly found in Ghana, however other countries have their versions of black soap as well. Other words for black soap are Alata Samina, Anago Samina which comes from the Twi language in northern Ghana.
