We love Moroccan Black Soap at Y.Wait, and have been using it in beauty treatments at our salon for years! It is an amazing ancient remedy for the skin. Not to be confused with African black soap, it is a natural substance that is derived from a mixture of crushed black olives. At Y.Wait, we add potash, olive oil and eucalyptus to our Moroccan Black Soap formula for the best results and a naturally fresh feeling!
Moroccan black soap has numerous moisturizing, exfoliating, and soothing properties. It is used to deeply clean pores and soften the face and body, allowing dead skin and impurities to be easily lifted. It works as a wonderful remedy against the damaging effects of pollution on the skin, and leaves it exceptionally radiant, smooth and ready to better absorb your moisturiser.
Here are a few more great benefits of using Moroccan black soap:
It is suitable for all skin types
It gently exfoliates and removes dead skin cells
It is moisturising and nourishing
It relieves irritation, soothes and revitalises the skin
It removes make-up
It prevents in-grown hair
It has antioxidant and antibacterial properties
It is great for acne prone skin
Traditionally, Moroccan black soap has been part of the bath ritual in Moroccan culture. For centuries the gentle yet effective soap has been used to cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify the skin giving a squeaky-clean feeling.
Natural skin routine with Moroccan Black Soap
If you're looking for the perfect simple skin routine using Moroccan black soap, we've got you! We've detailed our favourite method below, just follow these steps:
First, apply our Moroccan Black Soap to your face and massage in for at least one minute. This will lift dirt and impurities from your pores whilst gently exfoliating and boosting circulation.
After rinsing the cleanser thoroughly, apply some Rose Water Toner to a cotton pad or reusable pad and sweep it over your skin, avoiding the delicate eye area. You can use our Witch Hazel Toner instead if your skin is breakout-prone!
Follow with our Moroccan Argan Oil Facial Serum. Use just one or two drops rubbed between your hands and pressed gently into the face for best absorption. Wait two minutes before moving on to the next step.
Finally, massage in a small amount of Y.Wait Multi-Purpose Moisturiser, apply a little SPF on top and you're good to go! Enjoy clean, soft and glowing skin 💛
