There are several convenient ways of using liquid African black soap. You could either buy it or also easily make it your self. Find out how you can use it and implement it in your daily skincare routine.
Black Soap Bar
African black soap comes in a soap bar, which I have mainly used for face acne and to keep my dry skin clear from future blemishes. I often use it as well to shower with, mostly so I could keep my upper arms clear from clogged pores as a result of working out. That was until I discovered Liquid African black soap.
Liquid African black soap is the liquid form of black soap. The ingredients are usually:
- Purified water (aqua)
- Saponified coconut
- Hemp and Olive oils (with retained glycerin)
- Pure black soap (main ingredients: coconut oil, plantain skins, palm kernel oil, cocoa butter)
- Tocopherol (vitamin E)
- Sea salt
- Citric acid
- Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5)
- Rosemary (Rosemarinus Officinalis) extract
- Natural caramel.
Just like black soap, the liquid version is also unrefined raw, all-natural, and chemical-free. It’s a terrific body wash. A little bit goes a long way. Just add a few drops to your sponge towel, and it will lather up nicely.
It is a definite staple in my everyday skincare routine. I find the liquid black soap less potent than the black soap bar, and it keeps my upper arms clear. It’s even great for sensitive skin and oily skin. Afterward, I always use unrefined Shea butter to keep my skin moisturized.
Liquid black soap is suitable for the face and body, so I use it as a face wash as well after working out. To combat facial acne or keep your acne at bay, I like to stick to the African black soap bar as I find it more potent.
How to Make Your Own Liquid Black Soap
If you decide to make your own (organic) African black soap liquid face wash, all you need is a black soap bar and cut it in pieces. Add these pieces of soap to an empty, clean bottle with some distilled water and essential oils. Then let it sit so that the solvent can dissolve.
Are you wondering if you could use liquid African black soap for your hair? Well, I have used it as a rinse, and it gently cleansed my hair, but I did have to use a conditioner afterward. When I ran out of shampoo, I also used it to wash my hair for a week. As a result, my naturally curly and wavy hair turned dull and felt like straw.
Therefore, I would recommend it as a rinse but not as a shampoo. So, even if you are in a bind, pick up some shampoo that is suitable for your hair, but liquid black soap is best to use as a body wash.
Liquid African black soap is an excellent body wash. It is a shower gel that doesn’t contain any chemicals but all-natural ingredients. A bottle lasts at least a few months, and it keeps your skin clear when used regularly.
