African Black Soap powder is made from locally harvested African plants such as plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves and shea tree bark. These are sun-dried and roasted, which is how it gets its deep color. The many skin nourishing benefits of Sun Valley Remedies African Black Soap are due, in part, to the abundance of antioxidants and Vitamins A & E in the ABS powder. It’s good for thinning fine lines, razor bumps and eliminating blemishes. It is also used to lightly exfoliate and give you healthier looking skin.
The ABS is then combined with Aloe Vera and the essential oils of: chamomile, tea tree, thyme, and lavender. Aloe Vera, is a well known skin moisturizer for all skin types. The ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality”…need we say more?! Chamomile helps fade spots, eliminate acne scars and fight breakouts. Tea Tree calms redness, swelling, and inflammation.
