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.

This bar soap is so effective! It's drastically reduced my acne and evened my skin tone. I use it in combination with the shea terra black African soap with rose hips. I use that soap first as a 10 minute mask and rinse. I then follow with this bar soap as a simple cleanse and rinse. Honestly this whole line has been life changing.

Clean and fresh

I love that this product is the real African soap and not imitation. And you can tell by the way it works. It has a nice lather and smells fresh. I love using it as a mask and my face feels so clean and soft afterwards.

Best skin care ever!
Purchased

I love this soap. I've used ABS before, but not this brand, and I like this one best out of all. While it does leave a black residue in the sink (easily rinsed away) after use, it smoothes and clears my skin like no other product. It balances out my oily skin, inhibits breakouts and just makes my skin look so nice that I get tons of compliments on it.

LOVE!

This stuff makes my oily skin so happy. I use it on my back & chest too. This soap is my miracle go-to. The smell is very neutral, which I appreciate. The texture is different, but you can feel it cleaning the skin. I will continue to buy this product. I hope they never get rid of it!!!

Really drying and smoothing
Purchased

I really enjoyed this soap and loved the way it made my skin feel. I do not think is it for people with sensitive skin. It could be drying if you follow the directions

black African soap

I have very sensitive skin so I use this soap. it's amazing and helps fight acne without the harsh chemicals. my face is smooth clean and I get a lot of compliments. the only thing you need is a good moisturizer, I use coconut oil but it's up to you on what you use. this line of products is amazing too.
