African black soap is familiar to many people of African descent for its skincare benefits. It has been known to soothe skin irritations and diseases from simple rashes to contact dermatitis and psoriasis, as well as fading skin discolourations and evening out skin tone. Nigerians and Ghanaians have used black soap for centuries for bathing and for reducing body odour. The process of making African black soap is involved, but in the short version, plantain peels are dried under the sun. The skins (and/or palm leaves and cocoa pods) are then roasted in a clay oven to produce ash. Water is added to the ashes and filtered. Ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, or cocoa butter are heated and added, and hand stirred by local women for 24 hours.
