African Black Soap protects against photoaging and fades discoloration: Black soap may help shed darkly pigmented skin cells caused by UV damage while also preventing further photoaging. Antioxidants in black soap may protect the skin from free radical damage, which is a cause of premature skin aging, wrinkles, and facial lines.
