The Production Process:
SUN DRYING - The skin of the plantain is sun dried to a specific texture and then roasted in clay like oven. During drying, the heat is kept at a constant temperature in order to maintain a particular smell, colour and texture of the dried plantain leaves.
ROASTING OF PLANTAIN SKIN - The plantain leaves are then roasted. The roasting process determines the colour of the African black soap. The longer the roasting process, the darker the black soap.
MIXING OF PLANTAIN WITH PALM KERNEL OIL - After the roasting process, the plantain skin is mixed with pure, unrefined, natural Palm Kernel Oil. This process leads to the formation of the soap. No scents, preservatives, chemicals, colour enhancers, dye, charcoal or fragrances are added during mixing.
