All shades of black…all types of black soap. Properties, effects, rviews

Hello everyone!

I just cannot stop reading about soaps! I have also prepared a few interesting posts about various types of soaps, however, for now, I would like to focus on the black ones. I am totally obsessed with them, especially the one that is as black as the Moroccan night: Savon noir – a soap that has its origins in Morocco.

Savon noir black soap

It is hand-made from crushed and ground olives mixed with oil. Of course, Savon Noir soap does not resemble the soap you know. Not only is it dark, it also has a consistency … hmmm..creamy and sticky. It looks like a lubricant for the engine: D Under the influence of heat, the Savon noir soap melts in hands and perfectly lathers 🙂 You can say that it’s something like a thick, black gel to wash your body 🙂

Savon noir – properties 

  • helps in acne-prone skin care
  • removes toxins from the skin
  • helps healing wounds and any skin changes
  • soothes irritations
  • it is perfect not only for washing but makeup removing as well
  • it is perfect not only for washing and removing makeup but also…as a shave cream -it softens the hair makes shaving easier
  • it will work as a gentle scrub if left on the skin for a few minutes
  • it is suitable for every skin type, even the sensitive one
  • it is safe for allergy sufferers (unless you are allergic to oil and olives)
  • it is a source of vitamin E and delays ageing processes

Savon Noir is the most popular black soap. In contact with water, it becomes very velvety and thoroughly washes the body (tested & confirmed). Black Savon noir soap is a very effective soap and in fact, it is not black in colour at all. It has been named that way because its red-brown (sometimes olive) colour is in opposition to traditional, bright soaps. However, this is not the only black-coloured soap. Do you want more “shades of black”? Here you go, here are other soaps with a surprisingly dark colour and excellent care qualities.

The best Siberian soaps contain extracts from more than 30 plants (!!!). When it comes to the black colour of the soap, a few of them are responsible for it: pine resin in combination with black alder, mallow, liquorice and oil fir oil. Other, more popular sprouts used in black Siberian soaps are: soy and linseed oil, Siberian pine oil, sea buckthorn oil, Siberian spruce, bearberry, lemon balm, sage, nettle, yarrow, chamomile. Of course, there are many more herbs, each of which works perfectly on the skin.
