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.

Wonderful!

This product is fantastic! It clears up my acne and makes my skin super soft when I use it as a body scrub! I use it as a weekly face mask and scrub. It does smell a little funny when I use it as a face mask but that's okay! It works wonders! A little goes a long way! This jar will last me all year!

All in one

Both my boyfriend and I started using this for different reason and our skin looks amazing! We both have a really nice even skin tone and our faces look more youthful. This product doesn't dry out your skin but is effective for acne.

Gentle and exfoliating
Purchased

This soap is absolutely wonderful. The texture is just right and it cleanses without leaving a residue. I've used milder soaps for years, especially on my face, and African Black Soap is awesome. This stuff is amazing and a little goes a long, long way. 10/10 would buy again, if it's possible to run out in this lifetime!

Love It
Purchased

I pre mix this and use in the shower as a face and scalp deep clean once per week. One of the best products I have ever used! It is all natural, so there is a smell. Also a little messy, but if you can get past it, it is worth it. Tighter pores, clearer skin, shiny deep clean hair and scalp. The best. It cleared up skin on my forehead that I have spent hundreds of dollars finding a solution elsewhere and with facial after facial. This works.

Call me Goldilocks, because this is juuuust right!
Purchased

I love a good scrub, and I need one to combat both my oily and flaky spots, but it's been so hard for me to find one that leaves my face feeling clean but not totally stripped. I noticed the difference in this soap immediately. After using an oil cleanser to break down my makeup, I massaged the recommended paste onto my face and rinsed. My skin felt super clean but not tight or like it was stripped of all the good stuff. It just felt smooth and healthy.

Looks like I'm the first reviewer to actually like the smell of this. Yes, it smells like ash (well, that's what it is), but I find the campfire smell comforting for some reason. The only part of camping I really ever liked was the campfire.

Side note: I followed this soap with the Rose Hips Oil mixed with my night cream, and my face felt soooo good. I'm trying it in place of my usual argan oil, and so far I love it.

Incredible soap!
Purchased

Does wonders for my sensitive skin without drying. I love the smell and how healthy looking my skin is afterwards. Requires a little work, mix the dry soap crumbs/powder into a liquid scrub (a bit messy but worth the extra effort).

Terrible Smell, Beautiful Skin
Purchased

Don't be fooled by the title of this review, I love this stuff. It definitely doesn't smell great - similar to an ashtray, but when you're purchasing a product made out of ash you probably shouldn't expect anything else. As for how the product works, its great. Great cleanser and it doesn't dry out your skin. My skin felt soft and smooth after using.

A Bit Messy, But Very Effective
Purchased

I have used authentic/pure black soap in bar form in the past. I wanted to try this brand because: 1) it is 100% pure, the ingredient list is exactly what black soap should be in its raw form and 2) it is a power (which I have never seen before). Since it is in powder form and I can control how much/ how little I use, I knew this product would last me a long time.

Now as I am a first-time user of black soap in powder form, I will admit it can be messy. I like creating a paste and doing so in my hand can be tricky. Adding just the right amount of water to the powder can create a bit of a brown mess all over the sink. But that is more of a "user" issue as opposed to anything related to the product itself.I will use a small bowl going forward which should help a lot.

I will say that the product works WONDERFULLY. It is not abrasive and it does not dry out my skin. I have oily skin and am prone to some outbreaks on a monthly basis. This product leaves my skin clean, bright, and feeling healthy. Would definitely recc to others and will consider this a HG product in my skin care regimen.
