It is such an honour to have been recognised by one of the leading magazines in the global beauty industry. Liquid Black Soap is one of our most popular products and to have an African product acknowledged in global, mainstream beauty awards brings us even closer to achieving our mission of sharing natures gift to Africa with the rest of the world!
