Get the African black soap for eczema available in-store!
Anyone battling with eczema can attest to how difficult it is to manage. It is upsetting, uncomfortable, and awkward at the same time.
In between flare-ups, you feel quite normal. But when it strikes—you wish you knew what triggered it.
Unfortunately, eczema can’t be fully prevented when we can’t fully control our body and environment. Diet, medications, stress, other medical conditions—these are all eczema triggers.
Apart from avoiding such triggers, you should know that there are safe yet inexpensive ways to manage the symptoms. One of these solutions is the African black soap.
Curious? Let’s learn more about the benefits of African black soap for eczema:
1. It’s antimicrobial
Since itchiness if a common symptom of eczema, we can’t help but scratch it. The more you scratch—the higher chance of an open wound. The more open wounds—the higher risk for infection.
African black soap, commonly known as black soap, contains coconut oil which has high amounts of medium-chain triglycerides. Coconut oil itself contains antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
Because of its antimicrobial power, using African black soap for acne is also common among those with chronic acne problems.
2. It’s best for all skin types
There’s the impression that soap is drying for the skin, but not black soap.
Coconut oil is a fantastic moisturizer. Other than that, black soap also contains cocoa—another great moisturizer.
So if you have eczema, and you’re worried about your skin type whether dry, oily, or combination, black soap will still work wonders for you.
But the black soap benefits don't stop here.
Let’s not forget that black soap also contains Shea which adds moisture to your skin. And no—it won’t make your skin oily because coconut oil prevents overactive oil glands.
3. It’s soothing
When eczema is at its peak, the inflammation can be really tough to manage.
The combination of super ingredients in black soap—coconut oil, cocoa, Shea butter, palm tree leaves—make it a winning regimen for fighting itchiness and irritation.
You can also do an oatmeal scrub. Oatmeal is very soothing to the skin and encourages faster healing.
4. It’s a great anti-aging solution
Remember that as we age, we lose collagen in the process. This protein holds our structures—joints, skin, hair, and nails.
Coconut oil and Shea butter are two of the best natural anti-aging ingredients out there.
These substances encourage new development of collagen so you can look a lot younger. With long-term use, black soap can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
