Re-forming black soap
Our African Black Soap comes in blocks or chunks and is easily formed into bars or customized to create personalized soaps. It is also a great base ingredient for creating your own personalized soaps and can be melted and customized by adding moisturizing ingredients, such as unrefined shea butter, and essential oils. It can also be made into a liquid soap by adding water.
Storage of African black soap
Pure traditional African black soap is a soft milled soap and has a very high natural glycerine content. As a result, it readily absorbs moisture from the air. It must be stored in a dry location or in a sealed plastic bag or it will become soft as it absorbs moisture. Black soap exposed to the air will have a thin white coloured film. This film is not mold, it is caused by absorption of water from the air. This can be avoided by keeping the soap in a dry location away from moisture until ready for use. Other than that, there are no special storage requirements.
