Shea Terra Organics 100% Pure African Black Soap

Here’s a quick lesson in skincare history: In West Africa, traditional black soap is made by mixing the ash of local plants and barks 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 powerful powder is African black soap in its raw form, which, when mixed with water, creates a scrub that gently washes away dead skin. Its raw, organic formula—no harsh chemicals, dyes, or additives—leaves skin clean, rejuvenated, and healthy. The multifunctional formula also calms irritated scalps, clears up acne, and soothes razor bumps.

A Little Goes A Long Way

This powder is great. I like the versatility of it- that it can be mixed with other ingredients for different uses- and it travels very well.

This black soap will probably last me forever. I bought it almost 8 months ago and I'm not quite half way through the container. I use it as simply as mixing a little with water to foam up and wash my face, neck, and hair, or get creative and mix it with sugar or honey for a body scrub or face scrub. I also appreciate the shape of the jar. It fits right in on my counter, and I know that I can easily recycle or reuse it once I (finally) finish what's inside.

Black Soap

I'm not sure how I feel about this product. I can't see it actually doing anything miraculous however my skin appears very clean after I use it. I just wish it did more for blackheads

Ok

This product lives up to its descriptions, but is very, very messy. It works great on acne and blemishes, but is easier to use if you pre mix it before you get in the shower.

Awesome in a jar
Purchased

I love this. I tend to get back acne and when I use this for I can start to tell a difference right away. It can be messy but it's totally worth it! I love this product and highly recommend this product.

Received the bar soap...
Purchased

... but it was a great product. Has replaced my usual olive oil soap for everyday face soap.
The bar soap is also great at cleaning my make up brushes by way of rubbing the bristles into a lather on the bar.

Can't review the product. Never received it!
Purchased

Ive tried to order this product several times. I've read the stellar reviews and I thought I should give it a try, especially since I love the bar soap so much. The first time I ordered it, I ordered it with the bar soap, and they sent me two separate bar soaps. The smaller soap seemed to have the same label as the jar and was also a 4 oz bar (rather than the regular 5 oz bar). I emailed customer service who were wonderfully helpful, and they agreed to reorder my jar for me free of charge. Problem was, I received another 4 oz bar soap. I decided to give up ordering it since there seems to be a communication problem between ordering and packaging. Hope I can get a refund.

Twice as Nice
Purchased

My husband loves this product. I have purchased it three times. He works in high heat and sweats a lot. So his back breaks out. This great on acne. I tried it too on my face. It really works. Buy it!

very happy!
Purchased

The smell of the product overall is ash-y, and it looks like dirt more than powder. But I'm very happy with it! I struggle with bacne and facial acne and this product allows me to mix as much of it as I'm going to use at a time for what I need. I have found that mixing it a day prior to using it helps give it more of a mud mask feeling and I do leave it on as a mask first and then use it as a wash when rinsing it off. I've noticed improvement on my skin! I have far less break outs but still not quite clear skin. but I've barely broken into the jar yet, it'll last forever!

Fabulous!

Son uses this on his back while showering. he makes a paste, leaves on for 2 minutes and then rinses. it has made a huge difference in how his skin looks and he is more comfortable. Works even in the hot, sticky summer.
