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 this soap! It kind of stinks and looks like you're rubbing mud on you, but it really exfoliates your skin. It can be kind of abrasive though. Will buy again.

Magical soap
Purchased

By far the best I've ever used. This bar of vacum cleaning, pore unclogging, toxin extinguisher and deep cleaning problem fighter I have ever come across. Refreshing, and highly recommended.

I will never buy another soap
Purchased

This soap is perfect. It takes off mascara and leaves my skin with a clean tight fresh feeling. It has lasted quite a while, which i also appreciate. The bar is a rather odd large true block of soap with hard angles which made it hard for me to handle. I took another users advice and cut the block into smaller pieces with worked wonderfully. I was able to have a bar at home, a bar in my gym bag and a bar packed ready for travel. Love this soap!

Other than the terrible ring it left in my shower, this product is amazing! I was advised to try it to clear up small whiteheads on my chest, and it cleared them up after using for 2 days. It tingles a bit, which was odd, but I will be ordering this again!

Wonderful product!
Purchased

This product has done amazing things for my skin in just a short 3 days, I've seen more improvement from the use of just this product then any other expensive or dermatologist recommended product. I've literally tried every product out there for my acne and if everything keeps going well with the African black soap my acne will soon be gone! Highly recommend this product, especially with such a great price!

It's a soap!
Purchased

I saw some reviews in here talking about it being a powder or something to that effect. I can say with certainty after receiving it that it's a soap. I used it with a muslin cloth and my face ended up feeling very clean. It smells good too. I've only used it once so far so I can't report on any long term effects yet, but overall I'm quite pleased with it.

Great face wash!
Purchased

I really like this stuff. It can be used as either a face wash or a face mask. It has an ashy smell, but it's not all that noticeable. All in all, I would recommend this product.

Awesome!

Who would have ever thought that a soap that looks like dirt when I rub it on my skin would be so great! This soap makes my skin SUPER soft and gets rid of my blemishes. I will never let this one go!

Perfect!

I use this soap every night before I go to sleep and its great! My skin is super clear and so soft! You have to be sure to wipe off all of the soap residue since it does come off brown!

Great soap
Purchased

Buying this soap you already know it is a deep dark color. It has an earthy and somewhat mentholated scent. It also has a slightly gritty texture, it's not necessarily "exfoliating" but it's not as smooth as a traditional soap. This soap is amazing though, it works wonders on the skin. If you have body acne (back, shoulders, arms, etc.) using this soap regularly has made a definite difference in the total health of my skin. When I don't have it, I slowly notice my skin to be dull and generally overtime become more broken out. The ash in the soap really does help me, granted everyone's chemistry is different but I'd say this one is worth a try!
