In Nigeria, village women prepare the ingredients for black soap by first drying the skin of plantains in the sun. The dried skins are then roasted in a clay oven. The result is a fine natural scent and nutty texture. The longer the duration of the drying process the darker the color. The plantain skins are then mixed with palm kernel oil to achieve the finished product. Everything Glow African Black soap is made from the organic raw plantain skins in West Africa. Guaranteed to rid the skin of toxins and impurities, this soap addresses most skin ailments.
