Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I use these soaps?

Akuna All-Natural Soaps are most effective when they are used two to three times per week to maximize the cleansing benefit.

What is the best usage for this soap?

Akuna soaps may be used on the face, hands, body, or hair.

I have sensitive skin, will I be able to use your soap?

Our soaps do not contain any harsh chemicals or detergents, and only use natural ingredients that are gentle for, and even supportive for sensitive skin.  Our soaps are suitable for every skin type and do not have fragrances that could cause irritation. But as with any new product, test with a small patch of skin to rule out any reaction before continued use. 

How can I make my soap last longer?

  • Avoid letting your soap bar sit in water.
  • Store bar on a well drained soap dish.
  • Allow soap plenty of fresh air to dry between uses.
  • Never place soap where bath water can continuously hit it.
  • If your bar ever gets waterlogged and becomes gooey, simply set it on a draining soap dish or stand on its edge for a few days and let it dry out thoroughly.

How long does a bar of your soap stay fresh?

Although our soap usually gets better with age, we recommend using our soaps within 12 months of purchase.

When will production start?

Everything is in place for production of Akuna all-natural soaps. We are only waiting on one ingredient to arrive and plan to start making soap in September 2020.

When will the soap be available for sale?

Once the soap is made, it takes 3 weeks for the bars to be cured and dried so they last longer and are gentle on the skin. If you are buying the soap from Riverside or from Lusaka, you can expect to have a 4-5 week delivery time, including the curing, packaging, and shipping time. We also plan to ship all across Zambia, and this will add another week or two to the delivery time. See this page for our delivery locations and rates.
