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.

Doesn't work for me

This soap is fine for my face but not for my allergies; there is something in it that makes me sneeze incessantly.

Amazing!
Purchased

I have super super sensitive skin and can only use water to cleanse I tried this and it worked amazingly! No irritation made my skin glow! I even tried it as a 5 min mask as it suggests and that was even perfect with every penny never using anything else please keep in stock!

Sensitive skin/skin allergies
Purchased

I have sensitive skin and a lot of allergies so I was a little unsure about getting this product but I love it. I lather a section of the bar up then put the foam on my face and leave it there for a few minutes. You will have to do this for your face as it is too abrasive to apply directly.
(Un)luckily, I got a cystic acne spot on my face the day before this was delivered. My spots can take 2+ weeks to disappear sometimes. It took 4 days for this spot to fade.

love this!

I'm ecstatic about this cleanser for the body and face! for just 8 dollars too =) it was a little rough when I tried it on my body. i already read to build up a lather and apply that too my face but since I have sensitive skin, I'll be doing that for my whole body. My skin felt nice and tight, pores definetly smaller and my skin wasn't even too dry at all! I'm going to try some similar products because I enjoy trying whatever I think will help me but I'll definetly get this again. I might even find that the similar products aren't as good and even if they are, I need to save my money anyway so I'm sure I'll end up staying with this one <3

Thank You!

I love how soft this made my skin! I felt so clean and fresh because of the exfoliation and now I know charcoal soap is a new favorite thing of mine! The only meh thing was that it didn't smell good, but it also didn't smell bad. It doesn't really smell like anything. Again, neither a good or bad thing! Overall, I loved this product!

Amazing!!!

This soap is so amazing...best $8 I have spent in a long time. I wanted a soap that I could use for both body and face. Unfortunately, my face (which is super sensitive and breaks out VERY easily) did not like this soap. After using the soap for 2 week on my face I began to have the worst acne breakouts I have ever had. As for my body, I absolutely love this soap and will be buying more! Even though it didn't work out for my face, I still highly recommend this soap!

Where has this been all my life?
Purchased

A friend of mine was raving about African black soap so I just had to try it. At first I was skeptical because it seems to be leaving a "dirty" residue on your skin but after using it every other day i can really tell a difference in my skin. It exfoliates, moisturizes and is medicinal all at the same time. Everyone should try it!
