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.

I love love love this soap for my body. I'm prone to acne on my backside (thanks, sweaty gym shorts) and this soap is a lifesaver. I'm so much more confident and comfortable - I'm a fan for life.

I started to use this a my face wash and it's fantastic. I lather it in my hands and then rub the foam on my face. It's quick, easy, and my face is so clear now.

Best soap everrr

I am converted. I don't love the smell but it's not a bad one just nit the fruity scents I'm accustomed to. It's amazing, tough on skin but I've never felt cleaner or smoother skin!!! Worth every penny and more!

Highly recommend !

I got this as a gift for my girlfriend and she loved it! She liked how there wasn't any added ingredients so it has a very earthy smell. It worked really well to clean too. She said it worked better as a mask than a soap. It isn't too abrasive but you can feel it working away at the dead skin.

This is everything!

I got this as a gift off of my wishlist for Christmas with a bunch of other stuff and this is by far my favorite! I feel like a goddess with baby soft skin. It feels so nice exfoliating my skin and it makes my face feel like I'm ten years younger so clean and tighten. It is so worth the $8.

I have very oily t zone and dry cheeks, normally different face washes or soaps tends to either dry out my skin or leave a residue, no balance, but this soap completely balanced my skin after a couple uses, no drying and no residue, my skin felt clean and actually stayed oil free longer than usual. I'm sold and will definitely be repurchasing, thanks for carrying this product!

Before my breakouts were terrible (being the fact I always had good skin) but this year I been through a lot of stress and in school was tough. So I went back to the original thing my mom always recommended, black soap. Bought this and seen results less than a week! My face is clearing up like clockwork by using this morning and night. To save more soap I split it into quadrants of four so I'm still using my first piece. My acne is almost clear, my complexion is becoming luminous again and overall these large pores has tighten creating elasticity (softness). The biggest thing with acne on ppl is the cause of large pores, having large pores can cause extreme breakouts. With this soap is fixes those unwanted large pores making them extremely tight and cleanses your pores to avoid future breakouts. I don't use any exfoliating brush only my bare hands when applying. I use this black soap with Dr.Brandts pores no more cleanser (day and night) and follow up with Murad vitamin c day moisture and at night uses Murad vitamin c night moisture. This concoction is amazing!!
