DIY Black Soap Body Wash: Customize Your Perfect All-Natural Recipe

Updated: Apr 1, 2023


Are you tired of using store-bought body washes full of harsh chemicals? Do you want to switch to a natural, gentle alternative for your skin? Look no further than our DIY Black Soap Body Wash tutorial!

Black soap is a traditional African soap made from natural ingredients such as plantain skin, cocoa pods, and shea butter. It is known for its powerful cleansing and exfoliating properties, making it a popular choice for acne-prone or oily skin. In addition, you can customize the recipe by making your own black soap body wash to suit your specific skin type and preferences.

To make our DIY Black Soap Body Wash, you will need the following ingredients:

1/2 cup of Black Soap Chunks

1 cup of Distilled Water

1 tablespoon of Carrier Oil (such as coconut or almond oil)

10-15 drops of Essential Oil (such as lavender or peppermint)

An 8 oz Bottle

Our easy-to-follow instructions guide you through the process, so you can create your own luxurious, moisturizing body wash at home. First, dissolve the black soap chunks in water, add carrier oil and essential Oil, and pour the mixture into a bottle. Voila! Your DIY Black Soap Body Wash is ready to use.

One of the benefits of making your own body wash is that you can customize the recipe to suit your specific needs. For example, if you have dry skin, add more carrier oil to the mixture to provide extra moisture. If you prefer a stronger scent, you can add more essential Oil. The possibilities are endless!

Another benefit of our DIY Black Soap Body Wash is that it is all natural and free from harsh chemicals. Store-bought body washes often contain synthetic fragrances, preservatives, and sulfates that can irritate your skin. You can avoid these harmful ingredients by making your own body wash and ensuring you use only the best for your skin.

Not only is our DIY Black Soap Body Wash good for your skin, but it is also good for the environment. By using natural ingredients and reusable bottles, you can reduce your carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the planet.

In addition to its cleansing and exfoliating properties, black soap is also known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it an excellent choice for those with acne-prone skin or conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Using our DIY Black Soap Body Wash, you can enjoy the many benefits of black soap while pampering your skin with natural, nourishing ingredients.

Our recipe also has a shelf life of about three days, so please make sure to use it within that time frame. Store it in a cool, dry place and shake well before each use.
