Hi RCW.

I am just getting wind of your skin care routine and product recommendations. I am going order some products bit by bit...

But, I was wondering about black soap. Here are the ingredients:
Pure Honey
Shea Butter
Osun (camwood)
Palmkernel Oil
Cocoa Pod Ash
Palm Bunch Ash
Glycerine
Aloe Vera
Lime Juice & Oil
Lemon Juice & Oil
Water & Fragrance

I've had good results from it before. What do you think?

    What's the pH? If it's a solid soap, then it's probably very alkaline, and therefore skin barrier damaging. That's just the nature of the soap making process...it requires lye (that's what the "ash" ingredients are).

    Ah.

    Thanks!
