Accept no imitations. No natural product performs better to help improve and decrease aging of the skin. This ancient formula helps produce 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.

Wonderful product, and love that you back to the Yorubian people! Thank you!

Great soap!!!

This is a great soap! I use to get acne on my chest and back, since using this soap I have literally no acne! Very effective product. Thank you Shea Terra for such great products.

I like it, it leaves my skin clean and removes all the sebum, sunblock, dirt, etc. It is a very abrasive bar, which was stated in the description. If your skin is more sensitive or you like a creamier lather, this is not exactly your soap.

The only soap I use

I've been using this soap for about 8 years. I will never use any other soap plus they are cheaper than buying from a retail store like Clark's nutritionist sells it for 14. It doesn't make sense

The only soap I use

I discovered this soap about 5 years ago, mostly when seeking a way to take better care of my oily face. It's been decades since I was a teenager, and I still am prone to acne. I had tried a bunch of soaps for problem skin and experiment with other treatments, and I'd still get 2-3 pimples per week.

Once I tried this black African soap, I could feel that it was making a difference. It cleansed the oil away and stopped the acne in its tracks. Using this soap for my daily shower let me go months at a time before I get a pimple. It's kind of amazing.

Soon after starting to use this soap, I decided I didn't need any other soap at all. So this is the only thing I have in my shower. My skin feels good all over, and I love the clean feeling I have when I'm done. I'm seriously hooked.

A minor gripe: for a while, this was sold with the lemongrass scent. I just loved that, and wish it would come back. The unscented stuff is fine, but I miss the lemongrass.

Can't praise this soap enough

This soap cleared my blemish-prone skin and helped reduce redness and dryness. Leaving it on as a mask for 5 minutes was just a little too harsh for me, except on the more oily areas of my face. It's really refreshing and leaves my skin glowing. This, then the rose hydrosol, and finally a light coating of argan oil has done more for me than high end prescription acne products.

Absolutely the best

This soap soothed and cured my son's eczema, and I will never try another black soap. Viva la Shea Terra!!
