Riyafa Savon Noir is a rich paste that is 100% natural, organic, antibacterial, hypoallergenic and perfect for any skin type.

Produced from a mixture of crushed black olives and olive oil, it’s rich in vitamins A and E, both of which are extremely beneficial to your skin health.

Riyafa Savon Noir has no colourants, chemicals, or other additives such as synthetic fragrances.

Unlike regular high-alkaline soaps made from animal fat, tallow and other animal by-products that dry out your skin and strip its natural moisture and sebum away Riyafa Savon Noir adds moisture and is perfect for vegans and vegetarians.

Savon Noir cleanses deeply, removing dirt and dead skin and leaves your skin radiant, soft and silky smooth as it nourishes, exfoliates and moisturises.

Use Riyafa Savon Noir as an everyday soap for your face, body and hair, or as part of a traditional hammam ritual. Instead of foaming it becomes creamy when you add water.

There are so many ways you can use its rejuvenating properties to achieve spectacular results within days.

As a daily facial wash

Put a little Riyafa Savon Noir onto the palm of your hand, add a little water and use your fingertips to work up a creamy lather.  Massage the soap onto your face and neck and after a few minutes rinse off with warm water.

As a daily body wash

Use as a regular soap every day and with the kessa glove and Kessa back once or twice a week.

As an occasional Shampoo

A great way to get rid of dandruff, you can use Riyafa Savon Noir to deep cleanse your scalp. Rinse off with lukewarm water and follow up with your usual shampoo.

As a shaving cream for Women and Men

Riyafa Savon Noir is a wonderful shaving cream.  Use it for the smoothest, closest shave you’ll ever experience.

Use a shaving brush or rub the soap between your hands with a little water to work up a lather.  Once you’ve tried it you’ll never go back to chemical gels and foams.

As a pre-wax preparation

Wash with Riyafa Savon Noir in the usual way before waxing.

As the foundation of your hammam ritual

After 15 minutes in a hot bath, shower, steam room or hammam, using only plain water, apply Riyafa Savon Noir to your body while you are still wet.

Use the Riyafa Back Soaper to reach your back and other hard to reach areas.

Leave on for at least 10 minutes (although there’s no harm in leaving it longer), then rinse the Riyafa Savon Noir off with warm water.

Your skin is now softer and easier to exfoliate.

It’s ready for a gommage with the Riyafa Kessa Glove and Riyafa Kessa Back. While you’re still wet  use long strokes to remove the dead skin then wash off with warm water.

Finally apply a layer of Argan oil to moisturize and invigorate your freshly clean skin.
