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.

Love the product, hate the bar.
Purchased

I have this product in the dispenser as well as the bar. It works wonders as a liquid. However, when I bought this I kind of expected to be able to use it on my body. Upon reading the explicit directions on the label I found out that it is a less expensive version of the face product I already have. I wish that in the Birchbox description it had been more clearly outlined as a facial cleanser instead of a bar soap. On my face I don't feel as it if was as effective as the liquid version.

Great soap
Purchased

I have both this bar and the liquid in a pump. I love both and would recommend both. Yes, it is messy, but you are cleaning yourself in an area of cleaning, so no harm done. The soap is cleansing without drying. It doesn't leave you smelling like roses, but that's a bonus to me.

not impressed
Purchased

I tried after reading good reviews. It just smells like soap. What I really hated about it was how rough it was! I thought I was going to be cutting my skin open every time I ran the soap along my skin. And after all that, I didn't see any special benefit in my skin.

Definitely Worth the Hype
Purchased

I was always curious about trying authentic African black soap because of all the great reviews it gets. I decided to purchase this thinking it was just a bar soap facial cleanser. I just found out that it can be used all over the body, and a microdermabrasion for your face. I am in love with this multipurpose bar soap.

Amazing product
Purchased

This product is one of my favorites. This bar is used by myself and my other half daily. It's the cleanser that really takes care of our sensitive skin. My skin feels refreshed and ultra clean and toned after use. Thanks to birchbox I'm a huge fan of this brand

Not for me
Purchased

I purchased this soap after reading the great reviews. I have never had an issue with reoccurring acne, but I used this for two weeks (three months ago) and I cannot get rid of the acne that developed while using it. It's not my normal pimples I have gotten my whole life either.. They're deeper and my pores seem to be inflamed still. I have combination oily/dry skin and I think this was the worst thing for it.

I had never heard of this and was looking around the site and stumbled upon it. I have only used 2x but I already love it. And what a great cost!

Lightened my scars!!
Purchased

My sister told me about this soap. She calls it "the dirt". When I told her I could tell her back was clearing up, she told me "it was the dirt" lol.
So I decided to try it out, and I love it! I had scars all over my shins from the years of shaving and razor burns and it has definitely started to lighten my scars. And it has cleared the acne on my back! LOVING IT. Best part about it, it is completely natural :) buy it girls!
