     Rumors have it that real black soap is actually brown. What? Stop the record. Wouldn't brown soap be called, well, brown? Shea Terra Organics de-mystifies the myth of true African black soap, right here in this jar. Feast your eyes upon the real thing and all of your doubts will be put to rest. Yes Atlanta, African black soap really is black.

     So what makes African black soap black anyhow, and what am I going to get in this jar? Tradition has it that the first African black soap was invented by the Yoruban tribe of Nigeria. Believed to have migrated from Egypt, or perhaps Nuba, Southern Egypt, this tribe had significant knowledge of herbal medicine. Although a few of the original ingredients have probably changed a little, the age-old method of producing true black African black soap remains the same. Plantain peels, cocoa pods, camwood and palm kernels are roasted together in clay ovens. In order to make soap one must have oil and potash. The ashes of the pods and peels act as the potash, and the oil rich kernels exude their oil right in the clay oven. The ashes are then broken down, packed, flown to Dulles Airport and then packaged in this convenient jar awaiting all your African black soap fantasies.

     100% Pure African Black Soap is in its raw powder form. Nothing has been added to it. You add your own water and depending upon how much you can make the soap into a putty or a liquid. Use it all over your face and body, as well as on your scalp. This power soap clears skin from a multitude of pathogen-borne diseases. Many acne sufferers can't believe how well their skin has improved after only a few uses. 100% Pure African Black Soap dissolves sebum in the skin, which holds onto dead skin. Once washed away, you will not believe how much younger, firmer and healthier your skin will look. The soap is used by men to ward off razor bumps as it keeps the skin even and irritation-free. Working away at dead skin, it even helps decrease pigmentation.

     With all that being said you are probably wondering wouldn't it be better to just buy a bar of African Black Soap from a local retail chain. No!!! Nothing could be farther from the truth. Yes the bars might be shiny, nicely packaged and smell like perfume (why do they say natural fragrance when they are made from perfume anyhow... that's another story entirely). But, there are tons of imitation black soaps on the market. Although they claim to be true African Black Soap, they are nothing but vegetable based soaps that have been dyed black. Why are we telling you this? Because we believe it is an insult to the original makers of real African Black Soap. This is not much different from Amish dolls made in China or American Indian relics made in Singapore. Furthermore, imitation black soap won't do anything more than any other regular bar of soap made with chemicals. Without true African black soap, you never reap all its therapeutic benefits.

Contains only: cocoa pod ash, plantain peel ash, locally produced palm kernel oil, camwood bark
Add a little water to a spoonful of African Black Soap. Form soap into a paste. Apply to skin. Rinse off. African Black Soap can be made into a liquid by adding more water. Use on face and body. When diluted, may be used to shampoo hair.

I'm In love!!!!
  I have the most sensitive skin... anything that has chemicals that are not natural, my skin rejects. I just transitioned into my 30's... and my skin has been having some hormonal flare ups. Of course I can't use anything over the counter due to the fact of hives and rashes... This product is so amazing and it really helps if your having any breakouts. I recommend it, as a product junkie... this should forever be in your beauty arsenal. I'm so going to gift them to family and friends..... Love SheaTerra products.

Absolutely love it!
  So I wanted to give my skin enough time to use this before writing a review. I absolutely love using this raw black soap. It smells just like smoke or charcoal but the wonders it does for my skin are undeniable. I have dry/combo skin and I often use it when I have an acne flare up and it calms my skin down within 24 hours. I also mix up a little when I'm having eczema flare ups on my body. I just mix it with distilled water and rub it on my face. If I'm using it on my body I just sprinkle some powder on my washcloth and run the towel in water to wet it. The itchiness from my eczema goes away immediately and the rashes are often gone after a day or two. This soap is a godsend for problematic skin. I can't recommend it enough!

  I love this product! It lathers right up with just a little bit of water. I am sensitive to a lot of additives including Shea Butter so this is the best way for me to get the benefits of African Black Soap. Also just added a little bit to my shampoo and my scalp felt so clean. this is my first time trying the black soap so more on the how that works out but some of the little white bumps on my skin are already smaller after just 3 uses. Just love how easy this is to use and how many ways you can use it in this form!

Love it!
  I use this almost every night before I go to bed. It really cleanses, purifies, and exfoliates my skin and prepares it to put on one of Shea Terrra's oils. It works wonders on acne, and it brightens and tightens my skin. I won't be without it.

Wow, no more dry bumps
  Amazing! I put this on all over my body and let it soak in for about 5 minutes, and I can see it soak into my pores! Application is so messy, so only do this if you expect to stay in your tub or large shower, even then this can make your shower really dirty. Therefore I took off a star for this dirtiness factor. The performance of this product is great, because I've never had any product take away those razor or dry skin bumps on my body, and this does! After rinsing, I follow by exfoliating with a mitt and then applying the shea terra ghassoul powder made by me into a paste to set for 10 minutes. After rinsing again and putting on argan oil and body butter, my skin is so silky the next day.

  Being a big fan of Shea Terra black soap products, I had to try this too. I really love it's cleansing ability, but it can be a bit messy. Worth it though ! It will also last you a very long time.

  This powder works well, helps with acne and exfoliates perfectly. I mix a little raw honey then add a bit of water to make a good paste and wash off it really helps my skin.

  I recently had a severe rash that left my skin very dry, flakey and a little crusty feeling. A friend gave me a jar of this African Black Soap but I was little reluctant to try it so soon after my rash. I decided to bite the bullet, however, and glad I did. This was a little messy to use, but totally worth it. My skin is now soft, incredibly smooth and flake free again. I couldn't be any happier with a cleanser than I am with this product. I am making Shea Terra African Black Soap a regular part of skincare regimen. I have tried a couple of other Shea Terra Organic products that I am equally pleased with - the foot scrub is fantastic as are the Whippers!

Amazing! Awsome! Wonderful! Love it!
  I bought this product to help with acne and aging. I am 47 and yes I still get acne. However once I started using Raw African Black Soap I noticed a big difference with my skin. It felt clean and looked healthy. In fact I skipped a few days of washing my face and it started to breakout with nasty ugly pimples. I immediately washed my face with the soap and the nec t few days it cleared up and began healing. I will no longer purchase ovc soaps or washes. The best thing about this product it is safe for the environment and gives back to the workers and not the big fortune 500 companies that can care less about the environment, the people who harvest etc. Thank you Tammi for all you do!
