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.

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.

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.

This soap is magical
Purchased

Best $8 ever spent! Made my skin insanely smooth, poreless and tight! So sad it took me this long to find it. Buy this!!! P.S. My boyfriend loved it too, and we have totally different skin issues.

This stuff makes my sin look and feel amazing! It looks a little funky with the brown/dirty looking foam and bubbles....but it is AWESOME! Skin is clearer, more even, and softer feeling than ever.

Believe the hype!
Purchased

WOW!!! I purchased this based on the reviews and also needed to bump up my purchase to earn free shipping - so, so glad I did. I use this on my face in the shower every morning - lather and leave on while I wash my body / shave. I have very sensitive, adult-acne prone skin and this (in combo with Sunday Riley Good Genes) has truly made a difference in the appearance and clarity of my skin. I even started to use it on my decolletage where I had a few bumps/rashiness from working out and in two days, CLEAR. I also did as other reviews suggest and cut the bar into thirds and am only using a third at a time.

Blown away
Purchased

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.

Best soap, love it!

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.
