Inspired by traditional African soap-making techniques. For face, hair, hands, and body.
African Black Soap is traditionally made from the ash of local plants, plantains, cocoa pods, and leaves from palm trees and shea trees. Black Soap has been used for centuries in West Africa and has now become popular all over the world for its skin-supporting benefits. That’s what encouraged us at SallyeAnder to create a soap based on traditional African techniques and ingredients, right here in New York’s Hudson River Valley. Our formula uses plant-sourced oils, plant-based purifying charcoal. It benefits all types of skin and makes a multi-purpose bar for your face and hair and the skin on your scalp, hands, and body. It’s fragrant with cocoa butter and excellent to help skin that has a tendency to break out. If you are looking for a charcoal-based skincare solution, you have found it. We pack this gorgeous black soap in its own lovely cotton bag when we make it here in Beacon, New York. Black Soap is a conversation piece, a terrific gift, and a great bar for travel since it means you can leave behind your body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer. Now you have all of those in one cool bar. For all skin types.
butter blend (cupuacu, cocoa, shea), charcoal powder, carrot oil, and beeswax
"In 1982, Gary Austin hand-made an olive oil Castile soap for his two-year-old son, Aaron, who was allergic to grocery-aisle-soap. After realizing that there was a community of people with sensitive skin who would benefit from Gary’s soap, SallyeAnder and the commitment to creating the best soap in America was born.
Since then, every product decision has been made with one intention: delivering the highest quality, all-natural skincare solutions to our customers. How do we do that? By foregoing the use of artificial chemicals and synthetic ingredients, and instead, using edible ingredients and essential oils.
We were on the vanguard of formulating products in an environmentally-conscious manner, and even as our company continues to grow, we remain a small team of artisans that craft, package, and ship all of our products by hand. Since that first olive oil Castile soap in 1982, we’ve been dedicated to helping people, and we see no reason to change". - SallyeAnder Inc.
