The Health Benefits of Moroccan Black Soap



The Moroccan Hammam's Secret Weapon for Healthy Skin

The Moroccan Hammam is a unique and traditional bathing experience that has been practised for centuries. One of the most iconic elements of the Hammam is the use of black soap.

Moroccan black soap is a high-alkaline soap made from olive oil and macerated olives. This gives it its dark greenish-black colour. It has a creamy, gel-like consistency and is made completely from natural ingredients.

Black soap has been an essential part of the Moroccan Hammam experience for generations and for good reason. It is a secret weapon for healthy skin.


One of the key benefits of black soap is its ability to exfoliate the skin. The soap is applied to the skin and left to sit for a few minutes. This allows it to soften and loosen dead skin cells. Then, a special glove called a kessa mitt is used to gently scrub away the dead skin. Revealing smoother, softer, and brighter skin underneath. Regular use of black soap and a kessa mitt can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As well as improve skin texture and tone.


Black soap is also incredibly moisturizing, thanks to its high content of natural oils. It helps to restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier, preventing dryness and flakiness. The olive oil in black soap is particularly beneficial for the skin, as it is rich in vitamin E. This is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.


Moroccan black soap is a powerful cleanser that penetrates deep into the skin to remove impurities. For example, dead skin cells, and excess oil. It is formulated with natural ingredients such as olive oil, which has anti-inflammatory properties. And eucalyptus oil, which has antiseptic properties. Together, these ingredients work to cleanse the skin thoroughly, leaving it feeling refreshed and renewed.

Acne Treatment

It’s a natural and gentle treatment for acne-prone skin. Its antibacterial properties help to kill the bacteria that cause acne. While its deep-cleansing and exfoliating properties help to unclog pores and prevent breakouts. Regular use of black soap can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars and dark spots. Leaving the skin looking clearer and more evenly toned.

Black soap is a powerful and effective tool for achieving healthy, glowing skin. Its deep-cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing properties make it an essential part of the Moroccan Hammam experience. Incorporating black soap into your treatment at Casa Spa could help transform your skin and leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.
