Pure, authentic African Black Soap is a staple in many of our hand-crafted cleansers. Why? Because ABS has extraordinary beneficial properties for skin.

What are some of the benefits? We are glad you asked! Below are just a few:

100% natural cleanser

Soothes skin irritation, rashes and itching

Anti-microbial properties

Aids in fading skin discoloration

Beneficial in lessening acne

Lessens and soothes irritation from eczema and psoriasis

Alleviates itching scalp & irritation

Leaves skin rejuvenated and fresh feeling without SLS and chemical cleansers

African Black Soap has been used for centuries for general cleansing, bath, hair & scalp, and baby care.

Nurture Me Natural uses only pure genuine African Black Soap from Ghana for formulation of our face washes, hand soap and foaming body wash because we value the wonderful benefits of this age-old skin care remedy.

Our Natural Foaming Body Wash leaves skin feeling nourished and clean. Hand-crafted with nourishing plant extracts, and skin-loving oils, it never leaves skin feeling sticky, only soft and conditioned.

Nurture Me Natural's Foaming Baby Wash is a well-diluted version of our Natural Foaming Body Wash, blended with moisturizing Aloe Vera and just the right amount of diluted baby friendly essential oils.

Our popular Lavender Rosemary and Tea Tree Foam Face Washes are blended perfectly with pure African Black Soap liquified in pure Aloe, and blended with the appropriate plant extracts, botanicals and organic essential oils.

... and our Foaming Hand Wash is loved by all who use it. It is also fortified with the benefits of African Black Soap's antibacterial/antimicrobial properties, along with the mild antiseptic benefits of Tea Tree, Lavender and Rosemary Oils.

Natural cleansers are the best cleansers

Personal preference aside, there are key differences to these two cleansers.

Body washes gained popularity in the 80's and 90's, but recently bar soaps have made a come back, particularly natural, hand-crafted soaps.

Large production commercial body washes are primarily composed of water and surfactants, like sodium laureate sulfate, sodium laurel sulfate, and other chemicals. Although these products can appear silky, pearly and creamy looking, surfactants can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated, dry and tight.

In the past, bar soaps got a bad rap for their high PH, however, well-crafted soaps are made with skin-loving saponified oils of olive, sunflower, coconut, etc. These excellent naturally sulfate-free cleansers blended with nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter, and Aloe Vera creates a product that is balanced, moisturizing, and great for most skin types, including Psoriasis and Eczema.

One of my favorite properties about hand made bar soaps is how superior they are at exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. You know the dreaded "soap scum" that annoys us so much? Well, that happens when using bar soaps versus store body washes because the base ingredients used to create hand crafted soaps naturally exfoliate and remove more dead skin cells than watered down commercial body washes. To me, that healthier skin is worth a bit of rinsing of the tub or shower.

Whatever your preference, remember, soap kills germs, bacteria and many viruses. Wash your hands often to keep skin clean, and follow with a healthy, plant-based moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

Did you know that many essential oils of therapeutic quality can repel insects just as well as chemical and DEET repellents?

The right blend of oils such as:

  • Lemongrass

  • Citronella

  • Peppermint

  • Geranium

  • Lavender

…. and many other beneficial essential oils are tremendous in helping to fend off offensive and even dangerous insects.

Essential oils as repellents have gained popularity because of their safety and health benefits. Also, many repel multiple varieties of insects, for example, Citronella and Peppermint are both great for repelling Mosquitoes, Ants and Spiders.

The same such oils will dissipate and/or lose potency over time as they blend with the natural oils in your skin, and they require reapplication about every 2 hours or so, which isn’t a bad thing, since they are also very beneficial to the skin and body overall. 

Others, like Lemongrass can last for 4-6 hours. The perfect blend of essential and carrier oil is the key to a great overall insect repellent that is both effective and safe.

We blend our Bug Be Gone with a balanced blend of more than a dozen different repellent, therapeutic grade essential oils with soothing Aloe Vera and other moisturizers that smell great to us, but terrible to those pesky mosquitoes and other insects.

No insect repellent is 100%, and you must always be careful and mindful of insect activity and aggression around you when outdoors.
