I'm ADOS from Pensacola, FL and my name is Sineta George.
I'm American and I've lived here in Dakar, Senegal for 20+ years having moved here in 1999 with my three American children in tow - I didn't know a soul and was divorced (my ex paid no child support so I figured I go somewhere cheaper!) and seeking a new way of life.
I used to own a Black Art and Bookstore called Out of Africa in University Mall in Pensacola, FL (google it!) and I sold African products as well, including Dodo Osun and Nigerian Black Soap. I had NO IDEA at the time that cow's fat is routinely used as a filler in raw Nigerian black soap for example and there was another African black soap bar I used to buy that was sold by Africans but actually MADE IN INDIA! lol!
Now that I live in Africa I have learned all the tricks of the tradesmen that ply their wares in the US and I also know where AFRICANS get their stuff from when they want the best; and it ain't Nigeria or Ghana!
It's Mali and Ivory Coast! Mali is right next to Senegal and they export their products to Senegal and THAT is how I became acquainted with these LOVELY LADIES! Pls take a few to look at the video:

Another thing about (raw) African black soap: if its dry and crumbly DON'T BUY IT! Fresh (raw) African Black Soap should be soft and pliable, you can roll it into a ball easy and it's a little sticky to the touch but feel just like a soft candle. If it doesn't have a soft wax/candle consistency, it's been brought over to the US/EU YEARS AGO PROBABLY and it's been sitting around forever waiting to get sold.
It's not fresh, it's old.
Try a sample for $5.50 OR 2 small packs for $25.50 OR 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) which equals 5 small ones is $35.50 OR TWO 1 kilo logs for $60.50 (discounted) OR 40 packs for $150.50!
Message me for other quantities and I'll give you a link to order. I know it's difficult to find our AfricanHerbal line using the search engine because HUNDREDS of other products come up as well!
These large logs are what I use to make hand sanitizer (7 bottles for $25.50 or 1 for $5.50, including shipping, photos 8 and 10)!
