Natural skincare using black soap

For centuries black soap has been used for natural skincare in Africa.
1.As a natural skincare product Black soap helps fade scars caused by acne.
Since acne is not caused by dirt, but the release of excessive oils within the skin, the black soap cannot remove acne. But use of African black soap helps to fade scars caused by the acne, while still being a natural skincare product.

2 Black soap helps to remove skin irritations such rashes. As a natural skincare product black soap will also ease irritation caused by dry skin and eczema.

3.African black soap is also a natural skincare product suitable for all skin types. Black soap can be used for the treatment of problems on all types of skin including the dry and rough, oily and moderate skins, and is therefore a great natural skincare product.

4.Black soap is also beneficial for skin diseases and being 100% chemical free is a great natural skincare product for reducing the discomforts that are associated with skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema .

5.Black soap is great to removing make-up as it not only cleans the skin but acts as a natural skincare treatment. It removes all chemicals that irritatel the skin and help to cleanse and moisturise.

6.As a natural skincare product black soap also delays ageing of the skin through it's high vitamin A and E content. This moisturising effect can delay ageing the of the skin.

7.As a natural skincare product black soap also has excelent benefits for oily skin. Regular use of black soap helps to remove extra oils form the skin. This natural skincare product is thus useful in preventing the formation of pimples and other problems associated with oily skin.

8.Unlike most commerciall shampoos, black soap is 100% natural. Although more common as a natural skincare product African black soap can be converted into a liquide form (See earlier post) that is a fanastic shampoo. After washing you can use your regular conditioner for shiny lustrous beautiful hair. Being a natural skincare product Black soap is also effective in relieving dandruff and itchy scalp.

This post was prompted by a lady in America, that has recently found the benefits of using "Out of Africa" African Black soap as a natural skincare product. "I have bought several brand of ‘African Black Soap', some have worked but most bought over the internet are only coloured chemical soaps (The price normally give these away).

I am really impress with this soap, I have used it on my face and skin {all over like a shower gel}. As a natural skincare product, It cleanses very well. It gives it a real deep cleanse when it comes to the face and body, while still moisturising my skin.

Although I originally ordered the black soap as a natural skincare soap, I'm now also using it on my hair, I used it a number of times on my hair and I am also very pleased. My first impression was that it reminds me of when I use the soap bars. The African black soap cleansed my hair better though but it made it felt very strong. Being a natural skincare soap, it cleanses my scalp by removing any build I may have experienced from other products I have used and it also removed excessive oil build up, BUT it did not felt as if my hair was stripped, it felt very clean, strong and the smell I liked.

I have tired both the natural skincare soap (cake type) as well as the liquids made from the soap; they are both nice either way, but I honestly prefer the black soap in liquid form. So much easier to work with on both the skin and especially the hair. All in all the soap in hard form works just as well as the liquid and obviously as a natural skincare both yield good results.

For my skin type I find I find no need to moisturise after using black soap for natural skincare. Unlike chemical products that often irritate the skin, because there are no chemicals natural skincare with black soap is non irritating to most skin types, athough I do have a friend who experianced a slight burning sensation after using.
From now I will be using black soap for cleansing my hair as well as a natural skincare regime from now on. I am hoping to reduce sulphate shampoo by replacing them with African Black Soap."

This is the reason why globally African Black Soap is finding favour as a natural skincare product. From Lithuania, to Australia; From Canada to Germany Out of Africa has over 60 international enquiries wanting the natural skincare properties of natural black soap.

I have also received many comments about products being advertised as natural skincare products that are clearly not. Thus it's important to do your homework before purchasing anything that claims to be a natural skincare product.

Did the Irish invent Black Soap?

Although Scottish historian David Mac Ritchie never mentioned whether he believed the Irish invented black soap, he did conclude that the original Leprechauns were ethnically the wee Twa people of Africa.
He points out that some of the early inhabitants of Ireland were Black wee people standing 3 to 3.5 feet tall. They had great knowledge of many things including medicinal technology (And African Black Soap). This knowledge of herbs and other wisdom was considered magic by the local people. Later this magic came to be symbolized by the magic dust of the leprechaun, which we now find out is actually the ash from the Plantain skin, which forms the base of Black Soap. I always found these findings most interesting.
A recent comment to an article in the MSNBC/Newsvine column caused me to look around in Cyberspace for more information. The three paragraphs belowand the link to their origin is what I came across:

"...Candid authorities like the British Egyptologists Gerald Massey and Albert Churchward, the Scottish historian David Mac Ritchie, and the British antiquarian Godfrey Higgins, have done exhaustive research and brought many facts to our knowledge.

Tacitus, Pliny, Claudian and other writers have described the Blacks they encountered in the British Isles as “Black as Ethiopians,” “Cum Nigris Gentibus,” “nimble-footed blackamoors, and so on.

From all indications, the ancient dwellers of the British Isles and Ireland, like the Kymry (one of the names given to the earliest inhabitants, from whom the Picts and Scots descended), were Blacks. David Mac Ritchie has provided substantial evidence in his two-volume work, Ancient and Modern Britons that the Picts as well as the ancient Danes were Blacks.

The Partholans, Formorians, Nemeds, Firbolgs, Tuatha De Danann, Milesians of Ireland and the Picts of Northern Scotland were all Blacks. The Firbolgs (believed to be a section of the Nemeds) are believed to be so-called pygmies or the Twa. They are the dwarfs, dark elves or leprechauns in Irish History. The British Egyptologist Albert Churchward is convinced that the Tuatha-de-Danann, who came to Ireland, were of the same race and spoke the same language as the Fir-Bogs and the


So now we know why Guiness, like African Black soap is dark in colour... and so damned good!

What are the different types of eczema?

What are the different types of eczema?

Eczema is a very generic term used to describe anything from Psoriasis, dry skin to Seborrheic eczema. Today we'll look at a few of the more common types of Eczema.
Atopic dermatitis is the most common of the many types of eczema, and sometimes people use the two terms interchangeably. But there are many terms used to describe specific forms of eczema that may have very
similar symptoms to atopic dermatitis. These are listed and briefly described below.

Atopic dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disease characterized by itchy, inflamed skin and is the most common cause of eczema. The condition tends to come and go, depending upon exposures to triggers or causative
factors. Factors that may cause atopic dermatitis (allergens) include environmental factors like molds, pollen, or pollutants; contact irritants like soaps, detergents, nickel (in jewelry), or perfumes; food allergies; or
other allergies. Around two-thirds of those who develop the condition do so prior to 1 year of age. When the disease starts in infancy, it is sometimes termed infantile eczema. Atopic dermatitis tends to run in families, and people who develop the condition often have a family history of other allergic conditions such as asthma or hay fever.
Contact eczema
Contact eczema (contact dermatitis) is a localized reaction that includes redness, itching, and burning in areas where the skin has come into contact with an allergen (an allergycausing substance to which an individual is sensitized) or with a general irritant such as an acid, a cleaning agent, or other chemical. Other examples of contact eczema include reactions to laundry detergents, soaps, nickel (present in jewelry), cosmetics, fabrics,
clothing, and perfume. Due to the vast number of substances with which individuals have contact, it can be difficult to determine the trigger for contact dermatitis. The condition is sometimes referred to as allergic contact eczema (allergic contact dermatitis) if the trigger is an allergen and irritant contact eczema (irritant contact dermatitis) if the trigger is an irritant. Skin reactions to poison ivy and poison sumac are examples of allergic contact eczema. People who have a history of allergies have an increased risk for developing contact eczema.

Seborrheic eczema
Seborrheic eczema (seborrheic dermatitis) is a form of skin inflammation of unknown cause. The signs and symptoms of seborrheic eczema include yellowish, oily, scaly patches of skin on the scalp, face, and occasionally other parts of the body. Dandruff and "cradle cap" in infants are examples of seborrheic eczema. It is commonplace forIt is commonplace for seborrheic dermatitis to inflame the face at the creases of the cheeks and/or the nasal folds. Seborrheic dermatitis is not necessarily associated with itching. This condition tends to run in families. Emotional stress, oily skin, infrequent shampooing, and weather conditions may all increase a person's risk of developing seborrheic eczema. One type of seborrheic eczema is also common in people with AIDS

Black soap, because it's high in vitamines A & E, is a great natural treatment. The fact that there are no chemicles means that it's safe to use (It won't worsen the condition) for most conditions. It must be stressed that eczema has many different inputs: Genetic, diet and environment, so there's no silver bullet. My research shows that the vast majority of people that have used genuine black soap have found a degree of relief - even complete relief from all symptoms.

Next time we'll look at other types of eczema.
