Black Soap Follow-up

After being asked by devoted reader, Naturaleza, about more information on RA Cosmetics Black Soap, I thought I would try for it for a few weeks before I convince you all of it’s powers. This is the same product that I compared weeks before in another product review:

Here are the Ingredients:
                                        
Pure Honey                                  
Shea butter                                      
Osun (camwood)                            
Cocoa pod powder
Plantain peel powder
Palm kernal oil
Coconut oil
Water
Aloe Vera

Price: ~ $2.00 for a 5 oz bar

Smell: Nutty


Consistency: Particle bits, slightly gritty, but this can be worked into a good lather (because of the palm kernel oil.) Just be cautious about rubbing this directly on your face and other sensitive parts of the body like the decolletage. It’s a super exfoliate!


Results: I feel really good about this soap. There are no irritants, no obvious over drying effects. . . so I’ve been able to use this twice a day. In the morning and before I go to bed. In the morning, I use a light Aveeno moisturizer and before I go to bed, I use that same moisturizer with a small bit of shea butter for some nighttime skin repair. For several weeks, this regiment has been working out for me. I’ve noticed a sharp decline in break outs and an increase in fading old marks. 


Would I use it again? Yes, I’m running out at the moment and I’m going to buy some more. I did however, make the mistake of leaving the bar in the shower. Since this is a really porous soap, constant wetness causes it wear away quickly. So keep it in a dry place!

  1. Thanks so much, Charish!

    I really do appreciate this follow-up. And, now that it is up and my summer holidays are soon here I'll be on the hunt for the R A brand black soap. I hope I can find it. Otherwise I'll try something with similar ingredients. It is a good yardstick to use – the ingredients in the soap 'cos they are powerful and beneficial.

    I have a review to do of a soap I'd been using with Shea butter.

    You had asked in the earlier post if I had changed my diet, as the key to solving my recurring breakout. No, I have actually been having more water intake.

    Thanks again.
