African Black Soap is said to be one of the healthiest soaps for all skin types due to the purity of the ingredients used during production. Handcrafted in small batches with ingredients hand gathered from nature, this soap is created by families who cook over open fires, and the “potash” used to finish the soap comes from the fire pits. This version has no added essential oils, but has a mild scent form the natural ingredients.
The packaging for our liquid soaps are eco-friendly bottles** made from bamboo and sugarcane pulp, which are not only 100% recyclable, but also 98% landfill biodegradable.
For hands and face; fill one of our hand thrown ceramic soap pumps for every day use by the sink, or dilute this soap with water and fill a foaming soap pump. Approximately 1-2 Tablespoon to 8 oz of water, add more soap if needed.
For body; use in the shower or bath as a rich and cleansing, yet gentle body wash.
For household; dilute with water and use as use it to rinse food, clean dishes, mop, wash your dog, as well as your laundry. Approximately 2 Tablespoons to 32-64 ounces of water.
Made with all natural ingredients, the uses are endless.

**More information about our eco-friendly bottles from our supplier Best Eco Bottle:
What are the components of the Paper Water Bottle?
Outer shell of bamboo and sugarcane pulp
Inner barrier made of proprietary formulation of PET and ENSO RESTORE™
Cap liner with pulp cover
Is the bottle fully recyclable?
Yes…100%. Just separate the pulp outer shell from the inner barrier to recycle.
Will the entire bottle convert to clean energy?
98% of the bottle is made of material that biodegrades in a landfill*. After the cap liner is upgraded, 100% of the cap material will biodegrade in a landfill*.
Why does the bottle need a pulp outer shell?
The pulp outer shell provides structural integrity for the bottle as we continue to reduce the thickness of the inner barrier (eventually to almost nothing).
What does “converts to clean energy” mean?
Moisture and naturally occurring microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi and algae) exist in landfills. They transform the bottle into inert humus (dirt) and biogases (including methane).
Many municipalities collect biogases from their landfills and use it to generate electricity.
How does ENSO RESTORE™ convert the inner barrier to clean energy?
ENSO RESTORE™ is an additive to our barrier material comprised of organic materials designed to attract microbial activity. These microorganisms, upon consuming the ENSO material, excrete enzymes that weaken and depolymerize the plastic. The result is biogases and inert humus*.
ENSO RESTORE™ accelerates the natural biodegradation of plastics in biologically active landfills* and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent, certified laboratories using ASTM international test methods.
*Independent third-party testing has shown up to 30.3% biodegradation in just 390 Days in landfill-replicated testing (ASTM D5526).
