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.

Did not stop breakouts
Purchased

I thought I would try out this African black soap after having really good luck with other brands in the past but my skin did not react well to this at all. So many breakouts after using this product. Would not recommend to anyone looking for a solution to troubled skin.

i'm digging it
Purchased

i bought this with my points because i wanted to give it a test run to see if it would help with my oily complexion that is pone to pimples/blemishes. happy to report my face has been feeling REALLY clean lately and so far, no new nuisances have shown up yet. i was a bit worried about the brown lather at first, but it doesn't stain - just rinse your tub/shower/curtain liner and it's gone.

Nice soap
Purchased

I use black soap regularly and really just added this in for free shipping and because I was going to need to buy some anyways from Target or something. It works well, not really a specific thing about this brand but just the type of soap. If I need to buy it again and have an order already, I may buy again from Birchbox, otherwise I get it from Target or Walgreens normally.

Rough Love
Purchased

I love this product! It really helps get all the dead skin off of your body and makes your skin SO soft. But I would NOT use this product on my face, at all. It is a very rough and coarse product, it would hurt my face too much!

I use this African black soap in the shower in the morning to was off all my moisturizer, etc. in the morning. It has great lather and makes the skin so super soft. I just purchased my 2nd cake of this soap. It's a staple in my skin care routine now. I highly recommend this product!

It's Okay
Purchased

I needed a replacement for my Charcoal bar and so I bought this. The smell is pleasant and it cleans rather wall. However, it caused my face to break out more than usual. I like just using it as a body bar instead.

Wonderful soap
Purchased

I was excited to try this, for myself and my older son. We haven't had a lot of luck with face washes for him but this didn't irritatate his skin and mine felt so clean and soft. I don't know the long term yet but I'm extremely pleased with it for now.
