Is African black soap better than hand sanitizer?

03/14/2020 16:05

With Covid-19 in the news so much, do you really need to make sure you have more hand sanitizer?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends washing hands with soap and water as the top way to clean our hands. “But if soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help,” the CDC says.

Sanitizer might seem like it is better than soap for cleansing. But soap (any kind of soap) is as good as, or even more effective than hand sanitizer. Pure African Black soap is more powerful than almost any detergent soap that you would normally buy. Keep your sanitizer for times when you are away from running water, but try African Black soap if you are wanting a powerful deep cleansing. Africa Imports offers over 100 black soaps.
