    This review is from: Dudu-Osun African Black Soap (100% Pure) Pack of 3 (Health and Beauty)

    After I passed the age of 60, I started having facial breakouts for reasons that escaped both me and my doctors. After abandoning the medical profession’s expensive prescription remedies, I started using a combination of sulfur soap with Dead Sea salts, vitamin B-5. And Tri-Derma skin repair creme. This was effective.

    One day I discovered that my sulfur soap was gone, and I had a bad breakout on my scalp. I decided to give the Dudu-Osun soap a try. How and why this soap may be effective requires some explanation, and I apologize if this seems a bit like lecturing.

    Dudu-Osun soap contains different forms of wood ash, which in turn has a high percentage of calcium carbonate (used in agricultural lime) and potash (used in lye). Lye is a common soap ingredient. Lime is not so commonly used. Both are alkaline (high pH level). As such they can be caustic and corrosive although in small quantities this can be controlled. Dudu-Osun soap contains things like palm oil and shea butter which should help to reduce the burning that caustic substances can cause.

    What does this mean for a soap meant to help with breakouts? Here is my own analysis, based on chemistry and personal experience:

    1. Anti-bacterial action. Bacteria do not thrive well in alkaline environments. Dudu-Osun creates a highly alkaline environment which has a more highly disinfectant action than most soaps.

    2. Skin irritation. Caustic alkaline soaps have a very high potential for skin irritation. The more sensitive your skin, the worse this will be. This is the downside of Dudu-Osun’s disinfectant qualities. If left on the skin for even a minute, I can feel the burning for up to six hours later, and my skin sensitivity level is normal. If you use Dudu-Osun, wash it off immediately. Don’t let it get near your eyes or other more fragile tissue.

    3. Exfoliation. Exfoliants remove dead skin cells, which clears pores, allows hair follicles to grow, and generally promotes skin health. Chemical exfoliants are typically acidic (e.g., alpha hydroxy acid). Dudu-Osun is alkaline. It is not the best solution for skin exfoliation. With a good exfoliant, your skin will feel more refreshed. While your skin will feel clean with Dudu-Osun, you won’t have the refreshing quality that a good exfoliant produces.

    4. General effectiveness. It took only a couple of days for me to resolve a scalp breakout with Dudu-Osun. But when I wasn’t careful about flushing with water, it hurt.

    5. Alternatives. Sulfur soap with Dead Sea salts (such as what Jericho and Adovia offer) tends to be acidic when combined with water. Acid also has an anti-bacterial action as well as being good for exfoliation. The salts themselves have magnesium, which has anti-inflammatory and hydration qualities that people have found therapeutic for over 4,000 years. I rate these soaps as better than Dudu-Osun.

    6. Value. What can I say? This product is a steal at its current pricing. If you’re careful about flushing with water and don’t mind getting a separate exfoliant, it should serve you well.

    I hope that some of this helps to clarify the sometimes conflicting comments from other reviewers.

    African Black Soap is a wonderful, natural product suitable for all skin and hair types. It gently cleanses and moisturizes, without drying out your skin or clogging pores. Strong enough to get rid of excess oils on acne-prone skin, yet gentle enough for eczema, dermatitis, even young children. This soap is all you need to cleanse from top to toe- use on your hair, face and body. There are several different black soap ‘recipes’ on the market, since the traditional ingredients vary in different African regions. This particular one has a gentle scent due to the citrus. I buy black soap in bulk for personal use, I purchased several bars from this seller to give as Christmas gifts- its a wonderful present for literally anyone. Combine this with Raw Shea Butter and you have everything you will ever need for your skin and hair.
