Black Soap aka Charcoal and Aloe
Savons Des Îles
An ancient and simple solution to all-natural face and body cleansing.
Our plant-based Black Soap is inspired by the traditional knowledge and practices handed down from generation to generation of ancient West-African tribes. Their survival depended on their inseparable connection to the natural world, which led them to incredible insights such as drying certain types of tree bark in the sun then burning them to create an ash that saponifies natural oils, producing a gentle soap with powerful capabilities. We at Savons Des Iles have put our own Haitian twist on this age-old process, using organic Haitian castor oil to make our Black Soap even smoother and more luxurious. Our recipe is simple, containing only natural and organic ingredients including Bentonite clay, an ancient health and beauty remedy formed by the aging of volcanic ash, which adds valuable antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Simple and safe enough for fresh and clean daily use, lavish enough to turn a bath into a sumptuous escape, our Black Soap is brimming with wholesome natural ingredients. Detoxify your skin with the distinctive healing gray lather of activated charcoal and bentonite clay powder. Soothe your body with freshly squeezed aloe vera gel; rouse your senses with peppermint, eucalyptus, and tea tree oil; hydrate and pamper your skin with lush shea butter, vitamin E oil, and coconut milk.
Our uniquely formulated Black Soap is:
- Mindfully made by hand in small batches and cured for 6 weeks
- Safe, containing NO sulfates, synthetic colors, parabens, Triclosan, or propylene glycol.
- Formed into delightfully artistic 5oz, 4-inch bars which are 1 ¼ inch thick to last longer
- Nestled into an elegant box, making it perfect for daily use or to be given as a thoughtful gift.
