Have you ever heard of African Jelly Soap? According to ehow contributor, Kelly Sundstrom African jelly jelly soap, which is also referred to as African Black soap, is traditionally created with black potash lye, instead of refined lye. This causes the soap to turn black in color, and to have a softer texture that can be more gentle on dry skin. Although it can be difficult to locate African jelly jelly soap in stores, you can make your own at home using basic soap-making ingredients. If you are a cold process soap maker and would like to make this type of soap, then read Kelly's article titled, How to Make African Jelly Jelly Soap.
