Story Behind the Art:
Quench sources its product from a women's co-op based outside of Accra, Ghana. The soap is traditionally made here and known locally as Alata Samina. The basic recipe is centuries old, handed down by families through generations with slight variations depending on what is locally available and the maker's preference. Quench's version is made using cocoa pods dried under the hot African sun and then roasted in a clay oven. The roasted pods are then mixed with coconut oil to create a gentle and nourishing soap.

  • Not for folks with sensitive skin

    Nice product, however, I don't recommend for folks with sensitive skin.

  • Nice product

    Highly recommended product! I tried for my son based on my friend's recommendation almost 9 months back as he has dry skin. I tried many different soaps before it, but as always, useless. But this product is so good that my son’s skin-tone is far better now. Really enjoying it.

    I bought this for my Nephew who has really dry skin. He said his skin felt instantly better. Very happy with the purchase.

  • Luxurious, perfectly scented, great all-around

    I've always been a sceptic when it comes to all-over body washes, but this soap was a pleasant surprise. It's got a very mild scent, so it's perfect for a man or woman. And it really does work great as an all-in one soap (both face and body). It's the perfect solution for when I'm traveling on the road too.

  • Clean and Fresh

    Wow, Soap is soap right? Nope. I have troubled skin and I thought I would try the African Black Soap. It is amazing. My skin felt so soft without any of that chemical or too much lotion feel. This is the type of stuff you see in high end boutiques that celebrities buy. Thanks to Overstock we can skip that and go direct. Plus you get the added benefit of knowing it goes to a business which supports the local economy. I only wish I could order larger quantities since now the wife is using it too.
