Alaffia’s energizing tangerine citrus Authentic African Black Soap is made from a centuries-old recipe of handcrafted shea butter and West African palm oil. Black soap is known by its Yoruba name, Ossé Dudu. Dudu means “black,” which comes from extensive cooking of the soap to the point of charcoal.
