    Acne & African Black Soap

    African black soap has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that deeply and gently cleanse the skin. The ash in the soap helps to exfoliate clearing clogged pores and balancing the skin's natural oils. Over drying the skin can trigger oil and sebum production. The soap works to keep skin hydrated without any overproduction of oils.

    How To Use

      • Break off a small piece at a time & store the rest in the box or a cool, dry place.
      • Lather broken piece in palms
      • Use to wash the desired area
      • Rinse away.

    Our Founder

    Having had sensitive skin, psoriasis & eczema from a young age, our head scientist & founder ‘Kokoa' always struggled to find suitable products to take care of her skin. Existing products were either overloaded with chemicals - flaring up her skin sensitivity, or were completely ineffective in aiding the health of her skin longterm. Her father returned from a trip to her homeland Ghana, with Traditional African Black Soap and 100% Shea butter to help her skin.

    The results were unbelievable! Her eczema & psoriasis were calmed, eczema scarring drastically reduced within just 3 weeks, and acne was a thing of the past! Using her Biomedical Science studies from Kings College London, she studied and explored the world of natural beauty to understand why these products were so effective - researching, mixing, testing and began to formulate her own natural products. She has not had a flare-up of eczema or psoriasis since starting her natural skin journey in 2016. Kokoa was founded in 2017, using her own experience as the foundation.

    Charity Donation

    This year, Kokoa are supporting Hope for Justice, a charitable organisation that works towards ending modern-day slavery. We will be donating 4% of all profits to this organisation. 

    Modern slavery has been described as the greatest human rights issues of our time. As defined in the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015, modern slavery is an umbrella term that encompasses slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour, and human trafficking. A report from the HM Government (UK Government Modern Slavery statement) states that 'around the world, something in the region of 40 million innocent men, women and children are forced into various forms of modern slavery.

      The beauty industry is guilty of using slave and cheap labour to drive down production costs. Say no by buying ethically!

      I love this soap

      Didn’t really see any improvements on my skin. Just made it oilier if i’m honest. May not have benefited my skin, but who knows, it could benefit yours.

      This soap is fantastic!

      I've tried everything for my adult acne over the years with no real results -- even medicated cream from my doctor did very little-- but this soap... Good god!
      One week of usage and my skin is actually clearing up. There is such a huge difference! I'm excited to see what the upcoming months are going to produce.
      Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
