    Hi all,

     

    Sorry to tell you, that this recipe has nothing to do with Savon Beldi or Moroccan Black Soap. The real way to do it, is a well kept secret which is not available in the internet in its original form.

     

    Best regards

    Honestly, I’ve never heard of the Beldi soap. According to the description, it can be very helpful for the whole body. And I believe it’s true, because people in the East knew a lot about skin care. Thanks for sharing it, Maria!

    This information is really appreciated, great job. Our K-bree beldi black soap we do not use castor oil or coconut oil, meaning there are many ways to make the soap and there’s no “secret way” :).
