3 Benefits of African Black Soap: Kill Bacteria, Not Your Soft Skin

As the old saying goes, cleanliness is next to godliness — especially during a pandemic like COVID-19. Like many of you, we have been following the news, staying updated on school closures and government orders, and feeling a little lost at times. Yes, it’s easy to feel helpless at a time like this, however there is one thing EVERYONE can do to help fight this pandemic and it’s almost comically simple: wash your hands. Aside from staying home, the next biggest call to action from medical professionals has been to wash your hands, wash them again and then wash them some more.

At Heaven Scent, washing our hands is kind of “our thing.” Our African black soap is powerful enough to fight germs yet gentle enough to keep hands soft and smooth. If you aren’t privy to African black soap, we’d love to familiarize you with this product. Keep reading to learn three of our favorite benefits of African black soap.

  • African Black Soap is Antibacterial

African black soap, medicated with aged African honey, lime juice, and aloe vera, is doubly effective for not only treating acne, eczema and psoriasis but it can be used to reduce germs and bacteria, helping to minimize the threat of COVID-19.

A study from the Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology Research compared African black soap with conventional medicated soap and discovered black soap was more effective at getting rid of and reducing particular bacteria than the medicated soaps.

  • African Black Soap is Derived From Natural Ingredients

African back soap is organically made from plantain skins, palm oil, cocoa pod ashes and potash. These natural ingredients make for a very effective and deep cleaning soap without the animal by products or sodium lauryl sulfates.

  • African Black Soap Keeps Skin Smooth and Soft While Providing an Excellent Clean

African black soap’s lather is rich, creamy, and nourishing to the skin and improves the texture and elasticity of the skin, without drying it out. In most cases very little moisturizing is required after using this soap. Many of our soaps also contain shea butter, olive oil and essential oils, leaving your skin feeling naturally luxurious.

During this time, it feels like we can’t do much. However, please know that you can. Washing your hands can make a world of difference during a time when there is little certainty within the world.
