Make Liquid African Black Soap
Since Dr. Oz featured African Black Soap as the natural skin fixer for acne, dermatitis, wrinkles and more – U.S. sales for raw black soap have grown by 2000%. While raw black soap is awesome, the liquid version is even better. It’s nearly impossible to find pure liquid African Black Soap anywhere in the United States - Aside from our Acne Killer formula, but luckily you can easily make it at home.

Dry black soap is available from all kinds of retailers including spas and natural food stores, but you’ll save money if you buy online. You can find raw black soap on Amazon, eBay and all kinds of websites.

THE RECIPE: (Based on 1 LB of Raw Black Soap)
 
Ingredients:
Raw Dry Black Soap – 1 lb (available all over online for low prices)
Witch Hazel (available in most drug stores & supermarkets)
Distilled Water (available in most drug stores & supermarkets)

1: Use a one gallon plastic container. A small pail with a top (available at ace hardware stores) works best.

2: Cut up approximately ½ pound of raw dry black soap into small chunks and place in container. NOTE: Order one full pound of dry black soap so you’ll have more to add later if you need to make it thicker.

3: Add distilled water depending on the consistency you want. Use less water for thicker soap or paste and more water for a thinner liquid texture. Try experimenting by adding just enough water to cover the top of the black soap chunks and adjust as necessary. Use un-opened distilled water ONLY!

4: Add 1/2 cup of Witch Hazel per half pound of dry black soap (Regardless of the amount of being water used).

5: Stir mixture vigorously and cover. Let sit for 24 – 48 hours. Stir during the first 24 hours and vigorously stir after 48 hours until soap is fully liquid. Don’t be afraid to use your hands to break up left over chunks of soap. Within 48 hours, you should be able to fully stir the solution into liquid. If it’s too dry – add more water / If it’s too liquified – add more dry black soap. As long as your container has a sealed top, you can shake the solution vigorously also.

6: Once you’re liquid soap is the consistency you’d like, pour it in a properly sanitized bottle of your choice. you can also add your favorite herbal extracts or essential oils before bottling. Add oils and extracts at 1% or less to the final formulation and don’t make the total additives equal more than 5%. Shake or stir vigorously (let sit until bubbles subside) before bottling the final formulation. 

Your soap does not need added preservatives and will last at least one year - as long as you use a sealed bottle of steam distilled water to create your liquid black soap.  Do Not Use tap water or spring water!
