How to use

Note: If it's your first time using African Black Soap, you might want to start using it only every second day so it doesn't dry your skin too much (see recommendations & cautions below). After you have built up your tolerance after 3 weeks, you can increase frequency to 1-2 x daily

Combinations (Besties & No-No's)

This product can easily be combined with any other products, including actives like Retinol, AHAs, BHAs etc. However, we do recommend that first time users to not combine it with AHAs/BHAs in their first weeks of using, as it might cause irritation.


Can be very drying for first time users. Slowly introduce your routine by using 2-3x a week- increase usage as tolerance builds. Recommended to use in conjunction with cleansing balm to ensure.

    The best product for pigmentation.

    I've tried so many products for pigmentation and this is the only one that's making a difference. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and it is already working.

    This is by far the best fast wash I have ever used! I experienced fast-acting positive results within the first 72 hours of using this product. I would highly recommend this facewash.

    Acne who?

    At the beginning of the year, my skin really took a turn for the absolute worst. I have not sure what specifically triggered it as my 2-year skin care routine and i were going quite strong. As my skin continued to deteriorate, my mom recommended that i try Standard Beauty products (She asked around, it was THAT bad). I then ordered one African Soap, a mini retinol and a mini Salicylic Acid face wash. My skin started showing mild changes in the first week. THE GAME CHANGER? The salicylic acid toner that my friend ordered for me. I used it as specified and MY GOD. I'm sitting in front of this screen with glowing skin! 100% recommend!
