does dudu osun soap lighten skin

Most people in Nigeria use them for new born babies who have developed skin rashes. If it had lightening properties, it would not be used for babies.

Does dudu osun soap darken the skin or does african black soap burn skin?

Some people do complain that dudu osun burns their skin, and also darkens the skin. Been a user myself, I have not experienced darkening or burning so i guess this will have to depend on the type of skin or perhaps the weather. Most people that have complained that it darkens their skin reside in west africa where the sun is very hot. perhaps sun burn does contribute to the effect of whether or not you dudu osun soap darkens your skin or whether you feel a burning sensation or even form itchiness from black soap

is african black soap making acne worse?

Please not that some users might experience and adverse effect while using black soap for their acne, so if you are a new user, thread carefully but testing it sparingly on your body and then on your face and do not over scrub. if possible, start with a small patch on your skin so as not to make the the acne worse.

If you notice that the soap is actually making your acne worse, or you are beginning to breakout, then stop immediately to prevent further damage to your skin.

    1. my advise is to start with a small patch on your cheeks and see how your skin reacts to it. Do not scrub immediately, just wet the soap and rub all over your face and allow to dry like you would do a face mask. Not that you might experience some itchiness but this is ok.
