Ethnic Black and Arab peoples in West Africa have been using the plants high in fatty acid content (African Shea Tree nut (Vitellaria paradoxa), African Oil Palm (Elaeis guineensis), Coconut (Cocos nucifera)) and ashes of cocoa pod (Theobroma cacao) and palm leaves from their fires to produce black soap for centuries.


Enslaved African peoples took the tradition to the Caribbean where the high unsaponifiable content of Shea nut butter produced helped moisturise the skin and protect against the aging effects of the sun and weather.
