Dragon, I think it is ready to use, just cut into bars. You want to get some in the CO-OP?

Dragon, you must be looking at the wrong picture, shea looks like yellow mushy stuff, black soap looks like a lump of coal.

Active ingredients in Black Soap:
Water, cocoa pod ashes, plantain skins ashes, and palm oil.

You can also grate it up and add it to your soap batch.

I am going to order a pound. I've heard so much about it. I want to see for myself it is worth the high price. When I send off the order next week for the CO-OP, I'm ordering this, too.

Paul.... :wink:

Being West African born, I have used black soap my entire life, I even grate it and put it in my cp soap sometimes. Its the only soap my mom uses (old habits never die, lol) and what she does is she gets hot boiling water, about 8 oz, and pours it into a large container and takes a huge chunk of black soap and sits it inside, then covers it. 3 days later its a wonderful thick goo, kind of the consistency of taffy, and she just scoops a bit up and uses it in the shower. It seems to last much longer this way too, sometimes trying to cut the big bulk into bars produces a crumbly mess that gets wasted down the drain.

Good ideas there Z, thanks much! :)

Oh you will love it. Or at least I hope you love it as much I do. It has such creamy lather and does not dry your skin at all. It was some of the best soap I've ever used.
