Subject: Black soap, causing breakouts?

I've been using all natural black soap and i'm breaking out, I wondering if my skin is not liking black soap or it's the black soap bringing out impurities (like some good acne medicines do). I'm trying to decide whether or not to stop and try another facial regimen or to keep on.

Is anyone else having breakouts due to black soap?

most blacksoaps i have used irritated and dried my skin and caused it to break out even more.

it may be bringing out the impurities..but i couldn't take it. it had me breaking out with these ugly cysts, and i had never had face cysts until i started using black soap. i had to put that to an end real quick.

So I decided to stop using Black Soap and decided to just go get Queen Helenes Mint Julep and will start doing the Oil regimen. What i have noticed is no more new bumps are popping up since I stopped using black soap, it's a shame because I read so many good things about it.

I only tried one but it was the camwood in the soap that irritated my skin.

Dudu Osun.. broke me out badly! but I bought liquid black soap and that cleared my face and I just recently bought raw black soap..and that has broken me out and is working.. so it may just be the brand...I also tried Alffafia Black soap(sp?) and that was the absolute worst.

I honestly think the only good black soaps are the big blocks that you get from africans all the others are most likely mixed with something

If you still rather use a bar soap I recommend Clear Essence Olive Oil Soap. It clears my sick of oil and it sincerely helped my acne. Also I had dark spots from previous acne breakouts and I've noticed those starting to fade using the Olive Oil Soap. My mom has been using their Carrot Oil soap and has noticed similar results. I never thought a bar soap would clear my acne and I'm usually more comfortable using liquids.

Keep in mind, even Rx acne meds may cause an "Initial Breakout", which means that all the zits that are under your skin, that haven't come to the surface yet, are brought to the surface a lot sooner and at the same time. The skin is purging.

Sometimes, it gets worse before it gets better. The med/soap may not be causing the break out, simply accelerating the maturation of zits that were already forming where you couldn't see them.

My grandmother used to have lye soap. lol
She had beautiful skin though.
 
Lye is similiar to the mail ingredients in relaxers and hair removal creams. A great exfoliant, no doubt.

I hate black soap on my skin. It's abrasive and doesn't do much for acne in my opinion. 

I would recommend Kojie San soap. It will help get rid of blemishes too. Phisoderm Ph Cleansing wash is also AMAZING. This soap by itself helped me get rid of years of acting and balanced my sebum production to the point where I don't have acne issues anymore. It's mild too.

From what I’ve heard is that there might be a purging period where the dirt and bacteria in our skin is being pushed to the surface. It depends on how long you have been using it, if you have given it more than a few weeks it might just be something that your skin does not agree with. If you have only tried it a few days, I would recommend trying to it again and sticking with it.

Not in my case.  When I tried the Dudu Osun soap on my body, where I have no acne whatsoever, I was itching, rashing up with pus filled lesions.  I am not pressed to try the regular black soap because I found something that doesn't cause a reaction on my skin.
