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 discovered African Black soap from several posts on IG with high recommendations. I have dry, easily-reddened, sensitive and acne-prone skin. I knew after using this bar to cleanse my face, my skin was barely red at all compared to when I normally wash my face with other mild cleansers. My skin wasn't tight either, soft and supple, yet felt as though a vaccume sucked all the impurities out! This is easily the most life-changing purchase I've made from not just Birchbox, but ever!5
I really like this soap! It has a very mild scent and lathers really well. I do like that I feel very clean after rinsing off. It doesn't leave a slippery or tacky feeling on the skin. I also like that I can use it on my face as well as on my body. I would definitely recommend using a wash rag or your hands as it does feel abrasive. As others have mentioned, you can cut it into smaller pieces, but I didn't really feel the need. Also, it is on the messy side, so be prepared to clean your tub or sink a little more often. All in all I really enjoy it (so far) and I will surely repurchase!5
I've been using this for about two weeks. It has helped me tremendously with breakouts on my back. I found it to be a little too drying for my face. Also, it has a tendency to leave a dark color around the drain. All in all, it's a great soap.5
This soap is incredible! I have suffered from "backne" for a long time which can be embarrassing and also painful. This soap has helped clear this up and has also seemed to fade the scarring! I love the all natural ingredients and do not plan to ever use another overpriced heavy scented body wash again!5
I bought this on a whim & couldn't be more glad. My skin felt amazing after using. I used it on both my face & body. Haven't been brave enough to wash my hair yet. I'm 46 and no longer suffer from acne beside the occasional cyst so I cannot speak about those claims.5
I don't need my face wash to smell good or be a pretty color. I just want to put something on my face that feels natural as possible and doesn't irritate my skin. I struggle with acne and this soap does a great job-- my skin has definitely cleared up. I put it on my hand and then rub into my face because the bar itself is very rough. Lasts FOREVER and a great price. I even converted my roommate!5
This is one amazing product. Both my daughter and i use this. it really helps with acne and those small congestion bumps.
I am 44 years old, and have had issues with adult acne since starting a family 9 years ago. I had been shelling out the money for the skin care program often seen on tv, with decent results. Wanting to get away from products that use exfoliant, I tried the Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap. Best skin care decision I have ever made. The key is to leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. I love it. Love, love, love it. My complexion has changed for the best, and others notice the difference. I'll never use anything else. Cha-ching!5
To my surprise, this soap worked wonders on my daughters acne. Have tried all the typical acne products but nothing worked as well as the soap!5
I will definately purchase this soap again! It leaves my skin soft; doesn't dry it out or leave it feeling tight. It is abrasive so do not use directly on the face.5
