What is African Black Soap (ABS)?
Black Soap, Alata Samina, Ose Dudu or African Black Soap is a natural source of vitamins A & E and iron. For centuries, Ghanaians have used Black Soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes, rashes and various other skin issues. African Black Soap is excellent for removing makeup, dirt, and oil while leaving the skin clean with a fresh, healthy glow.

Black Soap, Ose Dudu or Alata Samina has it’s origins among the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria, but more widespread in use and production by the Ghanaians. The Yoruba words ose (“soap”) and dudu (“black”) literally translates to “the black soap”. Legend has it that the black soap was introduced to Ghana many years ago, by Yoruba traders doing business in Ghana. These traders were women and many were in the business of selling tomatoes and peppers. They were called the Alatas (Pepper Sellers). Samina is an Akan tribal word for soap. The word Alata Samina, coined by Ghanaians, means ‘The Pepper Traders Soap’.
African Black Soap is fantastic for showering, bathing, washing the hair, face and feet and is suited for all skin types. Due to its natural strength, if you have sensitive skin it is advised to use this soap sparingly. We do not recommend direct use of African Black Soap on the skin in its pure and concentrated form. Therefore, we suggest lathering and diluting it into a washcloth or sponge before use on the skin. Best used with our Organic Shea Butter as an after moisturizer. Once opened for use, allow soap to dry on soap dish.
