    Accept no imitations. No natural product performs better to improve and decrease aging of the skin. This ancient formula produces firm, blemish free skin that looks fresher and younger than ever. It works like micro-dermabrasion without the side effects.
     Authentic African Black Soap is still made today by the people of the Yoruban tribe located in Nigeria. It is believed that this tribe brought their herbal wisdom with them from their original Egyptian homeland. Secret black soap formulas are carefully guarded as they are passed down through generation. The soap is based on the ancient art of ash treatment finding a revival of interest today. As difficult as it is to obtain genuine African black soap it is no wonder so many imitations exist, even in Africa itself. In the US some companies add black dye to regular glycerin or triple milled soaps. These soaps do not possess the medicinal qualities of Authentic African Black Soap. Genuine African black soap is originally black although brown variations exist in neighboring countries and tribes. Even brown soaps with white specks can be found, but this is made using modern soap making methods combined with wood ash.
     Shea Terra Organics incorporates the black soap ash into healing oils and cures them into hard bars of soap. Due to the way black soap is made, the soap itself is slightly abrasive which makes for an excellent body scrub. The soap works superbly for those back and shoulder acne.
Contains only: USDA certified organic, virgin coconut cream oil, African black soap (cocoa pod ash, plaintain peel ash, palm oil, camwood), 24% USDA certified organic shea butter, certified organic, extra virgin olive oil, spring water, sodium hydroxide
Use daily for maximum results. Soap may be a little drying at times. Simply apply one of our moisturizing creams, oils or shea nilotica for glowing, younger looking skin.
Body: Lather bar on skin. For best results leave on a few minutes before rinsing off.
Face: Lather bar in hand. Apply lather to face. Leave on as mask for approximately five minutes. Repeat for best results.

The real deal
  I'm loving this soap so much. I don't break out as long as I use this soap. I've never left it on for five minutes (I'm lazy), but for one to two and it works great.

Takes Practice
  I ordered the African Black Soap bar after reading raving reviews about it clearing acne. After a few weeks of practice with the soap, I have seen a change in the quality of my skin and improved acne! It just takes a while to get use to it and how it works with your skin. I over used it one week, amd the next I didn't use it enough. But it is a great product. I plan on reordering this product for my body and then trying the liquid black soap and rose hips for my face!

The Best Black Soap EVER!
  I have tried several black soaps and this is my favorite. It naturally kills all the icky zit causing bacteria on your face without drying it out too much. These bars also last a long time. It is worth sending away for this black soap even though I can get other at the health food store. Have used your liquid black soap with the rose hips but like this one better!

Authentic African Black Soap
  This authentic NATURAL African black soap works wonderfully on my 54 yr old face. I use it with my ARIA Clarisonic Brush. Africans although poor, they have beautiful skin so I wanted benefit from their simple but very effective product and also contribute to empowering their communities financially. I recommend highly women save themselves precious dollars and use Shea Terra Organics products because they work all without any weird chemicals. Use the monies save to invest in your makeup brand, clothes, shoes, etc!

A miracle in a bar
  I have a dreadful skin problem caused by my auto-immune system. I've had it for years. It leaves me with large scars with multiple layers of scar tissue. Sometimes one sore will take a year to heal. I have been to many doctors, including specialist, to no avail. Then God directed me to Shea Terra. I bought the African Black Soap based on the promises made on the website. I saw an immediate difference in my skin. I have been using it for a year or more now. All the sores have healed and the raised scar tissue is now smooth. I have recommended this soap to many others, two of which have my same condition, and they all saw the same astounding results. Several are now regular customers of ST. I also use it on my face and have seen major improvements in my skin there as well. I'm 61 and everyone has been remarking that I look like I'm 20 years younger. This is truly a miracle in a bar. Thanks for sourcing it for us Tammie!

  I purchased this soap for my 13 yr old daughter because she had started getting break outs in her t zone area. After only 3 days of use, her face was almost completely clear. She loves the soap and I'm very pleased with the price and the results.

Love It
  This product is amazing. I have sensitive skin and have had a problem with acne ever since I was a teenager. No products really worked for me to keep my skin consistently clearer and this African Black Soap has really been working for me. People say it smells bad but the smell is really small and you get over it anyways, it does not stay on your skin. You can use it as a mask or to wash your face. This is my experience: - Gets all my make up off - My face feels very clean - It really speeds up the healing time of pimples - After I dry my face, I can feel my skin being tighter and firmer - Helps dry out existing pimples -My face has been much brighter -Makes skin very soft It makes my skin feel a bit dry but as soon as I put moisturizer on my skin feels great.

Love, love love this!
  I haven't used any other cleanser or product since purchasing this quite a while back and my skin is clean, smooth, and the best its ever looked. I wish the bigger block was still available that's how far back I bought it and still have a good bit left. For me, it's easier to have that amount and I can share it. I highly recommend this and many more items I have from Shea. I haven't purchased from anyone since I started shopping here, and I never will. The oils are the best, the aloe is the best, the soaps are the best, I love, love, love everything I have ever gotten here and will never switch.

  I really like this soap for celaning my face morning and evening. I does clean well. If i have long lasting makeup on it still leaves sime residue unless i scrub a lot. I used it on y eyes and it does get the makeup off but it has little abrasive stuff in it that can really hurt your eyes. I actually got red eyes from these granules getting in there. They should say don't use around eyes on the box! I hope it helps with my daughter's acne since i bought one for her also, but it is too soon to tell! Overall i like the feel of my face after use and i have combo skin,

Not good for my skin
  I'm always looking for a cleanser that will help my facial skin be smooth and blemish free. I also like the 100% natural, no dye aspect of this soap. Unfortunately, after using this soap for about two weeks, I broke out like a teenager (I am 50). It didn't work for me. I guess I have more sensitive skin than I previously thought.

My best friend
  So I'm pregnant and came upon this page for something natural to clean my skin with. The black soap seemed to be the most popular. So I ordered it and it's the only soap I will ever use on my face. I actually leave it on much, much longer than 5 minutes, because I just don't want to give it up to the sink. This soap dried out my problem areas as if it knew where they were. I directly apply the bar to my face and exfoliate gently in circular motions, just because I feel it is best used on direct contact from bar to face. My blemishes are gone, my scars are fading beautifully, and it has prevented those huge zits from forming. I am so in love. I know the rose hips black soap is popular too, but why try something different if this bar works perfectly fine.
