SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar - Black African Soap for the Entire Body

African black soap is a traditional skin cleanser used for its cleansing and natural clarifying properties. It is both simple and highly effective for keeping skin looking its best. Our soothing African soap body bar is specially formulated with organic Shea Butter, Oats and Aloe to cleanse, moisturize and comfort irritated skin. Delightfully, there is much more to this bar than skin cleansing, and if you deal with oily skin, using this formulated black soap is a great way to absorb all of that excess oil.

African Black Soap by SheaMoisture, an honored beauty secret that is quickly becoming a much-loved favorite cleanser and clarifier worldwide, is made from Palm Ash, Tamarind Extract, Tar and Plantain Peel. This blend helps calm the skin and clear blemishes from troubled skin. It leaves skin soft and refreshed, making it perfect for helping relieve symptoms of eczema or psoriasis especially.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Itchy Soap! While I do love the smell and texture, it made me and my family itchy! The soap makes my skin sting a bit as well. I was hoping since this had shea butter, it would be moisturizing on my dry skin, but that is evidently not the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It’s really gentle on the skin and I think I can see results regarding my dark spots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well this product works very well but the first few washes of a new bar burns my skin but eventually it stops doing that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for Ezcema I bought this version of the African Black Soap not realizing they had a particular soap for ezema. However, this soap has been WONDERFUL. I noticed my skin getting better after just a week or so. I use it regularly now and my skin has improved trendemously. Recently, I started to use Aveeno body wash every once in a while, since my skin is extra dry with winter, but this (African Black Soap) is the product that cleared up my skin. I am also sensitive to strong smells, and this soap is not strongly fragranced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INSANE results!!! I’ve gotta say, I’ve tried a LOT of products before and I’ve always assumed that unless you spend hundreds of dollars on skin care, you wouldn’t really see results. but then, I bought some products from Shea moisture, and it cleared up my skin in one week! Everything feels really expensive and high quality. If I’d tried this soap bar without knowing the price, I would’ve thought it was some super expensive product with incredible reviews and great results. I swear by this brand and highly recommended it! I’ve already told some of my friends about it, and I will continue to tell everyone I know for their own good. I don’t think I’ll ever waist my time on another brand again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely for body, didn’t work for MY face I have eczema and have had it for over 2 years. I went through over a thousand dollars finding a soap that doesn’t “irritate” my skin. It works so well for my body, but it was too harsh on my face (just like every other product I’ve tried.) My face would turn bright red, and would stay that way throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this bar soap for your body, as it soothes my eczema break outs. Just be careful and weary about your face! Everyone reacts differently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for eczema! My partner has eczema and it flares up in the summer. I got him this bar and it helped immediately! It is even gentle enough for him to use on his face! I use it sometimes when I want an extra scrub on my skin as well, I really love the scent and lather.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effective in clearing acne The soap worked in clearing my pimples and reducing the pimples reoccurrence but it didn't clear the black spots and acne spots from my face. Also I don't know why the pack was changed because I went to buy another one for troubled skin, and at the back of the pack, I saw "severely dry skin". The cosmetic store refused to collect the soap back from me, I hope this doesn't overdry my face and make the pimples come out more

Wondering why this soap says not to use while pregnant or nursing. I just used this bar soap on the back of my arms and my face for the first time tonight and read the box after my shower. Nursing a 3 month old. Do I need to be concerned or just not use?

Asked by: Ashley
This is a standard warning label included on our homeopathic remedies. When pregnant, we recommend all drug products should be cleared through a physician before use.
