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.

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!

Great Natural Cleanser
Purchased

This cleanser is exactly as described. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and refreshed. Afterwards my face feels so smooth. It did not dry my skin out, or cause any breakouts. The only thing I would change about this product would be the smell. It doesn't really have a pleasant smell, but it's not so bad that I would consider not using it. It is a natural product, so it obviously has the smell from its natural ingredients without any added fragrance. I would recommend this, and will most likely be purchasing another when this bar runs out.

awesome product
Purchased

When I was picking out this and reading the reviews I didn't think it was going to be as good as people were saying it was and then I got it and started to use it and it's simply amazing. I love it.

Not for me
Purchased

I'm glad this works for others but for me it dried my skin out noticeably. Also leaves quite a mess and smells bad.

Great body and face soap
Purchased

In addition to using this on my body, I use this on my face on days when I don't want to use an intense exfoliater (I don't use the bar of soap directly on my face but get it on my hands first). It doesn't sting my sensitive skin and isn't a harsh exfoliant. I will definitely buy this again.

Great bar of soap
Purchased

I love this soap! It helps my blemishes and who can beat the price? It's a little ugly and I imagine could be messy or leave a film but I just make sure I rinse well so I could be wrong in that assumption.
