Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! This product is perfect for my skin, 1 year ago, I had terrible acne on my cheeks & chin area. So, I would have to wear a full face of makeup daily because I was working at a Sally beauty supply store & decided to buy this product & wow, in about 1 month, my skin was acne free, I'm still using this product til this day to get rid of the dark spots from the acne I get once in a while now. For the past 6 months, I only wear my false eyelashes & fill in my eyebrows, nothing else on my face, I'm truly impressed how this product together with the black bar soap & the moisturizer cleared my skin flawless! I love this product! Never discontinue these products Sheamoisture! Please

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened? What happened to the original formula? Please have a corporate meeting and bring back the original formula :/ This soap is wrecking havoc on the skin on my neck and arms. Particals used to be smaller inside and now I have scratches. This was by go-to soap to protect my skin against the harsh winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No the same! I agree with the other reviewers. This new formula is so different. In addition, salicylic acid was an ingredient in the old, not there. I am so disappointed as I too have been using this product for years due to a skin issue...this was the only product that saved my skin. It was a miracle for me years ago...Now it’s not working and I will be shopping around. VERY DIDAPPOINTED!!!! Please go back to old formula. Please!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please go back to the old formula! I agree with the other reviewers who noticed the new formula is very different. The new soap is much thinner but the bigger problem (for me) is that the smell is gone. Without the smell, it's just another body wash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEW INGREDIENTS, NOT THE SAME PRODUCT I am in my bathroom having just gotten out of the shower only to discover the African Black Soap Ingredients have been completely changed. I have been using your products exclusively for three years. I use the african black soap for my body, the sea kelp, and argan oil shampoo and conditioner, and the hybiscus curl and style milk. I am very disapointed in the new african black soap. I purchased a couple bottles to be in stock when I ran out and the first thing I noticed was that the soap ran out of the bottle differently, definately lighter, and that gives you any idea of how long I have been using the product. Long enought to notice a change in viscosity. The second thing I noticed was the smell, significantly diminushed. Now, I'm actually quite sensitive to synthetic smells but your body wash doesn't effect me, nor dry out my skin. Anyways, this prompted me to read the label. I am very disappointed to discover a complete reordering and removing of ingredients. The original formula was fantastic and I think if this change is permenant it's time to move on from your brand completely. Because I'm sorry the first ingredient is Aloe? When it was litterally the last ingredient on the original bottle. Did the Corporation get a discount by the barrel or did you just read the recipe backwards? Sure you guys are at Walmart, Amazon and by no means a small company but this kind of change only happens when people get greedy. I'll be posting my review and the changes on all sites that I have bought from your company. Very, very dissapointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite Love the scent and how my skin feels but it is not clearing up my skin like I hoped and it makes tub too slippery. I like the lemongrass soap for my face. I will try that for my body as well.

Why did you change the formula? The old was the best!! No salicylic acid in this and it’s just not as great.

Asked by: Tb1991
The only thing we would ever change is an update in packaging or regulatory, but never efficacy. Also, if you do see anything different listed, it is due to new INCI labeling requirements which force us to list the same ingredients in older products under different names.

Is this safe enough to use as a face wash?

Asked by: Chichi
I started using this on my face about 2 months ago and it cleared up a lot of problems for me. I'm 60 and would still get acne on my face plus some dry spots. Now I don't have acne any more and it has also helped with some dry areas. I'm so glad I discovered this product. It also has helped with some back acne. Love the smell and overall good product.
