We are often asked, Why is African Black Soap called Black Soap? The most common answer is that it is because of the dark colour given from the ash of locally harvested plants and peels that are used to create natural sodium hydroxide, which breaks the molecules of the oils and butters apart and bonds with them to create a new compound called Soap!
Red Palm Oilis great in body butters and skin and hair formulations, bringing many benefits and so easy to work with.
And no, using it doesn’t mean you are destroying rainforest and obliterating Orangutans, especially when you use Baraka Red Palm Oil, sustainably produced and sourced from small scale farmers in Ghana. Check this blog if you want more detail:Why Baraka Palm Oil is Sustainable.
