Dr. Woods is a pioneer in offering this unique, highly effective, yet gentle natural cleanser to the American market. Raw black soap, an amazing, ancient vegetable soap, is made from tropical plantain skins, a renewable, sustainable natural resource. It is still produced in the traditional way – in small batches made by local, women-owned family co-ops in villages throughout Africa.
Dr. Woods Raw Black Soap is a natural wonder that lifts away tired skin cells to leave your skin smooth, hydrated and exceptionally healthy. Our Raw Black Soap formula is a gentle exfoliant and a powerful, acne-fighting deep cleanser that rejuvenates the skin without any need for harsh detergents or toxic additives.
Made from plantain skins, palm kernel oil and shea butter, Black Soap is an abundant source of skin-nourishing nutrients A, E and iron in a unique formulation that provides a luxuriously rich and gentle all-purpose cleanser for your face and body.
We offer our Fair Trade Organic Shea Butter, one of Nature’s most effective and versatile Health & Beauty resources, across all Dr. Woods Black and Castile Soaps. Sustainably harvested from the nut of the Karite Shea Tree, indigenous to Ghana, our Shea Butter is a bountiful source of Vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids to soothe and balance your skin. We use Shea Butter in its purest form – Raw and Organic – in order to retain its highest level of therapeutic and healing properties.
