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.

Authentic African Black Soap
Purchased

I really liked this soap, and some of the reviews helped alot. I made my skin feel cleaner, and helped with the acne and black heads on my face when used as a mask. I used it to shave with also and it made my skin really soft too. I would recommend the use of it as a mask only two times a week, and you will need to moisturize after using this as a mask, and your body.

Good for oily acneic skin
Purchased

I used this soap and other versions of African black soap for about a year, and this was one of the best. It can get drying, so use a heavy duty moisturizer (shea butter works great) when you use this, or alternate days. It does work well for acne, really brought down the number of pimples I had although I don't think it stopped new pimples from forming - if I skipped a few days my skin flared right back up.

Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap has started healing my breakouts and fading my acne scars in a mere two days!!! I followed directions, and left the soap on my face for a few minutes prior to rinsing. It's worked wonders so far!!! I will never be without this again.

My husband and I both started using this soap as a facial cleanser and it works great. Our skin is so much smoother and I can definitely notice a younger appearance.

Very Nice
Purchased

I'm pretty obsessed with this soap. It's amazing at clearing up the skin. If used everyday it has dried out my skin but if I use it 2-3 times a week, it's great.
