How to Use Moroccan Black Soap the Right Way



Moroccan black soap has been in use for centuries and is beloved for its versatile skincare benefits. This plant-based product can be used on your face, hair, and body to cleanse, exfoliate, and beautify. It has a dense texture with an amber hue and is suitable for all skin types.

Free from preservatives and chemicals, Moroccan black soap is becoming more popular in the beauty community every day. Here at Ziri Skincare, we source the highest quality Moroccan black soap directly from Morocco to provide the highest quality skincare experience. Here are the many ways you can incorporate Moroccan black soap into your own skincare routine.

1. A Nourishing Cleanser and Makeup Remover

When Moroccan black soap comes in contact with water it develops a creamy texture with less lather than regular soaps, making it a gentle option for all skin types. You can use this as a standalone cleanser or if you’re a fan of double cleansing, you can use it as your second step after a cleansing oil. This will leave your skin fresh, soft, and clean, perfect to reset during a good night’s sleep.  

2. Body Exfoliation

If you love the feeling of velvety smooth skin, then Moroccan black soap should definitely be in your body skincare arsenal. You can easily use it in the shower to slough off dead skin cells, unclog pores, and cleanse your skin. We recommend using Moroccan black soap with our exfoliating scrub glove in circular motions to massage and exfoliate. Rinse with warm water and use lotion or argan oil for smooth, healthy skin. Our Moroccan black soap has a beautiful lemony scent which will energize you for the day ahead. 

3. Remove Buildup from Hair

Yes, you can also use Moroccan black soap on your hair, in fact, its purifying qualities are perfect to remove product buildup from your scalp and tresses. It’s a great way to deep clean your scalp — apply to wet hair and massage to reveal clean hair for root to tip. Rinse with lukewarm water. This is a great weekly treatment that can encourage healthy hair growth.

4. Shaving

Moroccan black soap is a great alternative to shaving cream as it creates a smooth lather that isn’t drying perfect to guide your razor during shaving. You can apply to your skin and work into a lather using a brush or mitt or create the lather in your hands before applying to your skin. The Moroccan black soap is gently exfoliating so your skin will feel smoother than ever after you shave.

5. Fighting Skin Discoloration and Irritation

Moroccan black soap can help fight skin hyperpigmentation and skin irritation through exfoliation. If you have brown spots or bumps on your skin, the lauric acid contained in Moroccan black soap can help reveal newer and healthier skin. The product gently cleanses and calms your skin, improving its appearance along the way.

Our Moroccan black soap is made from 100 percent virgin black olive oil. You can find out more about the product here.
