Because of its natural glycerin rich content it absorbs moisture from the air and becomes softer if not stored in a cool dry place or in a sealed polythene bags.
The skin of the cocoa pod is sun dried to a specific texture and then roasted in a clay like oven. During drying, the heat is kept at a constant temperature in order to maintain a particular smell, color and texture of the dried cocoa pod.
ROASTING OF COCOA POD
The cocoa pods are then roasted. The roasting process determines the color of the African Black Soap. The longer the roasting process, the darker the Black Soap.
MIXING OF COCOA POD WITH PALM KERNEL OIL
After the roasting process, the cocoa pod is mixed with pure, unrefined, natural Palm Kernel Oil. This process leads to the formation of the soap. No scents, preservatives, chemicals, color enhancers, dye, charcoal, or fragrances are added during mixing.
The African Black Soap is then poured into molding blocks and then heat-sealed.
