Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap

Here’s a quick lesson in skincare history: In West Africa, traditional black soap is made by mixing the ash and barks of local plants with healing oils. Rich in vitamins A and E, it’s become prized by women around the world for its abilities to battle blemishes and the signs of skin aging. This rich cleansing and exfoliating bar from Shea Terra Organics is the real deal. Made with USDA-certified organic ingredients, it retains all the medicinal benefits of the original African soap.

Like it don't love it!
Purchased

Nice soap that does not dissolve quickly in the shower. IT does tend to leave black marks on towels and tub is not rinsed immediately. Overall feels great on my skin!

Great sticking stuffer
Purchased

Got this as a stocking stuffer for my cousin for Christmas. She really loved it, and I have only heard good things since. I personally like the CO Bigelow soaps more, but this went over well with my very hard to please, 21 year old cousin!

Loving it
Purchased

I just started using the soap and it is working wonders. My skin feels soft and nourished. The smell isn't that great but for my skin anything. The nice part is the smell doesn't linger.

I really like it!
Purchased

I really, really enjoy this soap. I use it just as the directions suggest and leave it on my face for 5 minutes as a mask. I use it in the evenings before bed and my face feels smooth, fresh, and clean. I haven't had any major breakouts since using this product and my skin tone seems to be more even. I also enjoy the scent and think it's a great value for the large bar that you get.

Finally!
Purchased

Finally a soap that clears my skin and doesn't dry it out! I was nervous to try this produce because some of the reviews said that the soap dried out the skin. It is messy and I will only use it in the shower.

Its okay.
Purchased

I loved this product for my body, but it made my face break out more. It doesn't smell very lovely, but it works all over the rest of my body!

Works Great
Purchased

This soap works great for making pores smaller for my fiance. He's really seen an improvement on his nose. The only thing I would complain about if I had to complain about something would be some of the bigger chunks slightly hurt when rubbing my hands together but if you get it wet enough it's not bad.

Nice soap
Purchased

I bought this soap to help fight my acne prone dry skin. Most acne soaps cause my skin to dry even more, not so with this soap. It keeps my skin soft and works great. Its a big bar so as other reviews suggested I cut the bar up. More soap! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because its black, its a bit messy.

Great for body acne relief
Purchased

I use this for the occasional gym-induced acne outbreak, and it really works well without totally drying out my skin. I will say I wouldn't use it on your face (or if you do rub it into your hands and then your face), the exfolient is very strong and it would likely scratch you, but it is so perfect for any body blemishes. Make sure you rinse out the shower well or you'll have some questionable brown stains all over your shower! I like that the bar also doesn't shrink just from being in the shower, my bar has lasted several months. I love that it's all natural and organic too!
