What is the Beldi soap

Beldi black soap is a typical Moroccan soap used in baths (hammam) in the east, the Turkish bath or steam bath, especially in the beach town of Essaouria in the Atlantic coast of Morocco, where this soap was created.

The Beldi soap is a soap in paste form that makes few lather, dark brown, rich in vitamin E, which has many beneficial properties for the skin, which highlights its exfoliating action plus moisturize and soften the skin. It is used to prepare the skin for manual exfoliation, purifying the skin to thicken dead cells for subsequent removal.

Beldì Soap Formulation

There are several types of Beldi soap being the traditional dark color and fragrance of eucalyptus. The soap is made from olive oil and black olive paste saponificated with potassium hydroxide (KOH). Until the beginning of this month of April, I knew nothing about the black soap from North Africa and the Middle East and specifically this Beldi black soap. Was placed a post in the group Saboaria, Portugal, where I took the first contact. I was very concerned with the composition and apparent simplicity. A comment on my blog the soaper Luis Carlos Gulias made me a chance to make this handmade soap hot process by the process liquid soap, simply leave in paste form and not to dilute the liquid soap.

Analyzing the components of this soap you arrive at the conclusion that the key component is olive paste. It is an empirical reasoning by exclusion, because without the olive paste, this would be a simple soap, an olive soap in paste. The olive is approximately, varies according to the species type climate, and other variables, 52% water, 19% oil, 1.5% protein, 19% sugar, 7% cellulose  and 1.5% ash. For these components is that they should impart the characteristic properties of Beldì.
