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.

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 had such high hopes for this soap but it just didn't work as well as a lot of the reviews claimed that it would.

To be completely fair, I did not use this soap every day as it was very drying. I used it every other day and noticed no difference in blemish or oil control. It did, however, make my skin softer but I had to use a very rich moisturizer every day.

Black soap

I like this a lot but haven't used it enough to know how how well it works to improve skin. I did cut it into multiple pieces so that I can more easily use it in the shower.

great soap but very drying
Purchased

if you're looking for a drying soap this is it. I'm not too sensitive to products that dry out the skin (as I have oily skin) but this one does make your skin dry. The exfoliating result is nice and it feels good to use (on the body). It lasts too.

Stinky but effective
Purchased

My skin felt amazingly clean & fresh after using this soap. I feel it has improved the texture, as well. I tend to be oily, even in the winter. The price is good & this cake will last me a long time.

Great soap

This really gets all my make up off without drying my face. Skin feels and looks great with this as my nightly face wash.

Good but messy..
Purchased

My face felt fabulous after trying this soap. The biggest and only complaint that i have is that when i left the bar of soap in my shower it bled and made my shower look iffy.

Love it, though it's a bit messy
Purchased

This makes my skin feel so fresh and soft after using it. I love it. Instead of replacing my face soap though, I added this into my regimen and wash my face a third time each day. It's really improved my overall complexion.

Awesome!

I have very sensitive skin, so I was worried when I bought this. I love it. It's one of the best soaps I've used and it lasted a while.

Great Soap

I really liked this soap. Sometimes my skin gets itchy, so I used this soap and it took care of that. Besides, it made my skin feel CLEAN and fresh without an overpowering scent. I wouldn't share my sample with anyone!

So far so good...
Purchased

I have only used this a few times but it seems to be a great exfoliant and leaves my skin feeling soft. This soap is rather abrasive so I recommend using a wash cloth or hands to apply to body rather than rubbing the bar on your skin. Also is kind of messy but that is to be expected when using black soap. Overall seems to be a great product.
