If you believe in the old adage ‘well begun is half done’, start your skincare ritual with a few drops of this magical potion. This one is an OC tribe favourite – a surfactant-free, hypoallergenic cleanser, it is gentle on your skin and doesn’t strip off natural oils. 

African Black Soap is made entirely by hand, by women in West Africa using recipes that have been handed down for generations. This everyday cleanser is loaded with incredible antibacterial properties derived from phytochemicals and oils in plants. It is saponified using sun dried plant ash, and no chemical alkali, as is usually done in making soap. The Vitamin E in the emollients hydrates your skin while exfoliating it, whereas the healing herbs minimise sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused by excessive exposure to UV rays.

Something you should know - the Cocoa pod and other plant ash content is reduced in winters to suit all skin types. Hence, the colour of your Mesmerising African Black Cleansing Potion  may vary slightly as per season – from black to dark brown to light brown, depending on the ash content.

We believe that skincare should be therapeutic and to best enjoy the process of using our Mesmerising African Black Cleansing Potion, here are the steps that you need to follow:
Step 01: Apply 2-3 drops on your wet face while of course avoiding your eyes!
Step 02: Gently massage for about 1-2 minutes.
Step 03: Rinse off with water and pat dry your skin. 

We suggest you follow it up with a suitable hydrating Skin Tonic. While following our 5-step OC Ritual, remember to use this as Step 2 after using our Pollution Defence Cleansing Balm.
Please note that if you have sensitive skin or skin exposed to chemical treatments, you may take a short while to get adjusted to this therapeutic cleanser. If at any time, you feel your skin is in an excessively inflamed or reactive state, it is advisable to stop using this and any other product for a few days, to allow your skin to settle down.

1. How is this better than other cleansers or face washes? 

Our Mesmerising African Black Cleansing Potion is a very unique formulation that contains African black paste made by women in Ghana using a traditional centuries old recipe consisting of Shea butter, Cocoa pod ashes, plantain skin ashes and local herbs. We further enhance the efficacy of this product by adding a synergistic blend of grade A essential oils that makes this cleanser a one of a kind in terms of its efficacy. It not just cleanses, but with regular use helps with sun damage, pigmentation and makes your skin glow. 

All of this, with only 3 drops of the cleanser per wash!

2. Why is it so expensive?

Oleum Cottage formulations are made with the best quality of oils and essential oils to give you the highest efficacy. Interestingly, many who initially think they’re expensive, change their mind after trying them. Most people who try it feel it is a good investment and switching to Oleum Cottage saves them the salon/treatment costs!

3. Will this suit my sensitive / acne prone skin?

Yes it absolutely will. Mesmerising African Black Cleansing Potion is a therapeutic non-surfactant cleanser. We believe oils are very effective and the synergistic blend of essential oils is what makes our formulations so safe and effective even on sensitive and acne prone skin. 

4. Does it have actives (salicylic acid, glycolic acid)?

Our core belief does not let us get into actives and synthetic chemicals. While they may give you instant gratification, they do sensitise your skin in the long run. Oils, on the other hand are not just better at treating skin concerns but also make your skin healthy the more you use them!

5. Can kids use it?

For kids below the age of 13 use 1-2 drops instead of 3-4 drops. 2 drops is still a very effective way to clean your skin. This gentle face wash will naturally help heal their skin over time.

6. How many times a day should I use it?

We recommend using it twice a day to see visible results.

7. Why does it come with a dropper?

Our Mesmerising African Black Cleansing Potion is a potent blend of ancient wisdom served to you in a way that a drop or two is enough to address your entire list of skin concerns.

8. How long will this last?

This bottle lasts 2 - 3 months depending on individual usage behaviour, as only 2-3 drops are recommended for each use (after shaking the bottle gently).

Amazing miraculous cleanser 😍

Im a person who has lot of skin concerns I hesitate to try new products no matter dey are chemical based or organic!! I tend to get easily purged or my skin reacts sooner or later... But this strategy of urz giving out trial kit is something I got very impressed with!! Rather than spending hefty amount on one product, I got a chance of using 3 products as a trial pack datz too awesome 👍 I fell in love with African Balck portion and ordered one and also referred my friends to order a trial kit to see what I felt🥳
