What is Mud Soap? Mud Soap is antibacterial and is enriched with other minerals from the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is part of the Syrian/East Africa Great Riff Valley, flanked by the Judean Mountains to the west and the Moab Mountains to the east.
Mud Soap cleans and restores a healthy and natural glow to your skin. It’s moisturizing, hydrating and ideal for oily skin. It’s effective in relieving acne and eczema and removes impurities and environmental pollutants that are often trapped in oily skin.
Black Soap is traditionally known as African Black Soap. It’s made from secret West African recipes, and it’s 100 percent natural and organic. It contains the highest shea butter content of any soap. It’s great for skin and hair, and it offers UV protection from the sun. Not only does Black Soap also relieve acne, eczema and psoriasis, it also treats rashes, dandruff, dry scalps, body odor and even ringworm. This soap heals cuts, thins fine wrinkles, evens out dark spots and eliminates blemishes. Black Soap is made from locally harvested African plants and is great for oily, dry and sensitive skin.
Greek Yogurt Soap keeps your skin glowing and nourished and even moisturizes skin’s under-layers. Yogurt is as healthy for your skin as it is for your stomach. This soap is for both your face and your body. It contains essentials oils, oat bran, honey and/or milk. It heals pimples.
Glycerin Soap is one of the most moisturizing soaps you can use. It moisturizes and hydrates the skin, and it’s wonderful for all skin types. This soap removes fine wrinkles, stretch marks and tears in your skin. It works nicely as a face wash and dries out acne too!
