OHWTO is the only place to get the ORIGINAL Black Magic soap- Accept no substitutes!
Black Magic is my facial soap of choice. I havent used anything else for over a year now and my face is loving it! Its absolutely LOADED with ingredients long used for toning and clarifying the skin: Tea Tree oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Glycerin, French Green Clay, and Activated Charcoal. In addition, the soap is made after I HAND INFUSE the base (and then filter it) with heaps and heaps of healing Calendula petals.Now, you can go ahead and google these skin-loving additives and see for yourself what their benefits are and how people use them -and please do- I encourage EVERYONE to do their own research and come to their own educated conclusions! Youll see what these ingredients are traditionally used for and believed to do for your skin; Im not making any claims here, other than that my soap will clean your face, or whichever body parts you choose to wash with it. Technically, I cant, unless I have this soap lab tested for all of those properties, and Im just not in a position to do that. I can tell you, however, that I use this soap on my face twice a day and it works great. Not too oily, not too drying, it leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed.
I use a gentle, vegan-friendly soap base to create these soaps. NO SLS/SLES or other detergents have been added, its just soap. There have been no colorants added to this soap; everything Ive added to it adds up to create the green/black coloration of it. Additionally, I have left out any fragrancing, so this soap smells very medicinal- not unpleasant, but its not a bouquet of flowers type scent, either. Think, herbal or apothecary and youll have a good idea of what to expect- the lemongrass oil really helps to tone down the typically medicinal scent of the tea tree oil. The lather is super thick and creamy, and because of all the goodies I put in it, it can take a little bit of coaxing to get it out of the bar (depending on the water you have at your house); it almost has the consistency of a shaving cream (A few times a week I like to spread it on my face and let it sit for a minute or two before rinsing, it acts as a light facial mask!) This soap is absolutely wonderful as a facial soap, but can be used on the rest of the body as well- Id advise you to keep it away from the, well, private areas, to avoid irritation- peppermint oil can cause tingling and tea tree oil can cause burning and you dont really want to mix those 2 sensations together on sensitive areas. These rectangular bars weigh about 4 oz, you will get 1 bar with this listing.
As with all of my soapy stuff, test first on a small area and discontinue use if irritation occurs. Keep out of eyes and mucous membranes. Dont eat it, its soap and is for external use only. This product contains LOTS of essential oils and can cause a reaction in persons sensitive to them (pregnant, on medications, weakened immune systems, etc), so please dont buy it if you fall into this category or think you may or even if youre not sure because I dont want to be responsible for you getting hurt :( Additionally, please be sure to read the ingredients list before purchase, and dont buy it if youre allergic to anything listed.
