Ed note: I just had to add the feedback about Remedica Black Soap we received from Jana, one of our customers:
I don’t normally add comments, but decided I would share my thoughts on some products I purchased from you a few weeks back. I am one of those who is gradually changing to natural as I run out (too expensive otherwise) and I am now using the Remedica African products and love them!! The Black soap face wash is brilliant -its the best clean I have ever had from a product. I have normal/oily skin with large pores, but my skin is a bit sensitive too, and I could never find anything that was gentle but strong enough to get the ‘rubbish’ out of my pores – I could literally see the build up in there, it was gross. I was getting pimples along my jawline, but after a couple of days of using the black soap face wash, they were almost completely gone! I use it on my shoulders and top of my back too with the same result! I am thinking of trying the Minerelle make up too, sounds like it might help with the pore build up.
Directions: Lather over the skin in the bath or shower. Rinse well. Keep soap dry between uses. Please note in its raw, unprocessed form it is a chocolate coloured, dense fudge like consistency with clear pockets of different plant matter and butters compressed to form a solid compound. The real black soap is neither hard enough to be a hand held bar nor soft enough to dispense through a pump or plastic tube.
Ingredients: Hand compressed compound of roasted cocoa pods, palantain, coconut oil and shea butter. Heated at low temperature with soya bean oil for easier application and softer skin feel.
