At FarmSudz we are carrying on a practice deeply rooted in African tradition. Our Primal Clean black soap is so effective at soothing unhappy skin (such as acne, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, burns and rosacea) that we can’t keep it on the shelves.
Ose Dudu, or African Black Soap dates back centuries. Traditional African black soap was a soft, brownish-black, rough-looking soap whose recipe varied from tribe to tribe and was passed on by word of mouth. Through our extensive research, we have learned that the "traditional" recipes were lost to time. However, the rough-look, color, texture, and knowledge of the principal ingredients have survived. Today’s recipes still contain cocoa pods – said to be a healing agent, and plantain extract, which has natural antibacterial properties that among other things, may help treat acne breakouts.

I’ve been using this as part of my nightly routine for a couple of years now. It balances my skin out and doesn’t leave it dry. Highly recommend.
African black soap
Best soap for keeping a clear skin. Wins over many charcoal ones I've tried.
Love this soap! I use it every day, my skin is smooth!
I have eczema that drives me crazy in the winter. After a week of using the black soak and the boo booz ointment , it has all cleared up!
I use this black soap on my face daily. Some face cleansers causes a mild case of rosacea on my cheeks. Ose Dudu does not!! I love it!
