New soap sucks!
I first stumbled upon this soap at a target a few years ago. It smelled good and sounded like it would help with my dry itchy winter time skin and it really did. Myself and the wife loved the smell and more so for me it helped my winter time dry skin issues. About two years ago I moved to a different state and couldn't find it in any of the stores so took to ordering it on Amazon 5 bars at a time. Didn't even mind the price because the product worked.
But.. unfortunately now they have changed the soap ingredients and not for the better. Got my 5 bar shippment in about a month ago.. in the middle of winter and it just doesn't work. Still sorta smells the same but skin is back to being dry and itchy. Other reviewers have posted pics of the changed ingrediant lists. They should take " three butters" out of the soap name now and just call it soap... that costs more.
If they revert back to the original ingredients I might buy more but now I am stuck with 4 bars I don't want and having to try new soaps. Will be trying Dr. Squatch, AOS and C&C, all have good reviews.

Yup, New Formula. Not happy!
Just purchased a 5 pack from Amazon. I was hoping that all of the reviews I saw were wrong and that the formula hadn't changed, or at the very least I could live with it. Wrong. My eyes started stinging the minute I pulled it out of the box. NOT THE SAME SOAP. The fragrance is somewhat the same, yet noticeably different, the bar itself looks different, and as I said, my eyes are stinging.
I've been a long time customer. I called customer service before I ordered and they assured me that they had not changed the formula. Yes, you have. Bring back the old formula!!!

new formula, YUCK!
What happened? Unless they go back to the old soap the way it was, I will never buy any of their products again. They changed the ingredients for the worse! Old formula was AMAZING, and my husband bought 5-10 at a time. He ONLY USES THIS SOAP!
He won’t anymore, he said it’s awful, completely different and they screwed up an amazing soap, and made it a cheap piece of c**p (his words!). Why can’t companies leave a good thing alone? This decision was SO obviously made to increase profits, and goes against everything sofie tucker founded it on! Once again greed ruins a good thing.

Formula changed. Be aware
I purchased a bulk pack from Amazon. Assuming all was good and it looked the same on-line, I received the order, but it was not the same. After contacting the company direct, they assured me that YES they did change the scent and formulation. I am not happy and have stopped ordering. BE AWARE.

Bring Back Original Formulation!
Shea Moisture Three Butters Utility Soap Cleansing Bar - New Formulation (new packaging)
Shea Moisture unnecessarily reformulated an already perfect product! Unacceptable! Clearly Shea Moisture does not care about their customers by insulting our intelligence. Did they not think we could feel, smell, and read the differences in the new formulation of the Three Butters Utility Soap Cleansing Bar (new packaging)? This new formulation is cheap, non-moisturizing, and does not smell as nice as the original but is sold for the same premium price. Shea Moisture is more concerned about their profit margins than customer satisfaction. This product is a disgrace to the founder, Sofi Tucker. This new formulation is not worth the premium price and is no substitution for the original. The original formulation was the greatest soap for men I have ever come across. I use it to cleanse and moisturize my body and hair, plus, I shave with it. It is a great 3 in 1 solution. I still have original formulation bars for side-by-side comparisons. In the new formula, the first two ingredients, Sodium Palmate and Sodium Palm Kernelate are common to most soaps, nothing special here.
Reasons New Formulation Is Subpar:
• Does not smell as nice as original, new scent is only vaguely reminiscent of original
• Dries skin
• Cheap formulation sold at a premium price
• Bar is visually less orange and vibrant in color than original, it is more grey/dull looking
• Only contains 1 certified organic ingredient vs 4 in the original
• Contains sodium, dioxide, and oxide based ingredients
• Contains 20 ingredients vs 10 ingredients in the original
• Not a worthy body soap, shampoo, or shave soap
• Theobroma Cacoa (Cocoa) Seed Butter is the 18th ingredient vs 1st ingredient in original formulation
• Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)* is the 6th ingredient vs 2nd in original formulation
• Missing 4 ingredients found in original - Apricot Oil, Honey, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Mineral Pigment or Vegetable Color, and Essential Oil Blend
• Packaging does not claim to sooth razor bumps and burns, correct dark spots, heal dry/rough skin, sooth symptoms of eczema & psoriasis vs the packaging for original formulation which does
New Formulation - Ingredients:
Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Fragrance (Parfum), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Sodium Gluconate, Mica, Palm Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, Palm Kernel Acid, Iron Oxides, Nigella Sativa Seed Oil, Juniperus Communis Fruit Extract, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Butter, Theobroma Cacoa (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Leaf Extract

Shea Moisture Three Butters Utility Soap Cleansing Bar - Original Formulation (old packaging)
Five stars! The one and only, the legendary, the original! The original formulation is a 3 in 1 solution every man should be using, especially if you have dry/itchy skin and/or scalp. Its ability to moisturize is unbelievable. The scent is delightful yet manly. If you can get ahold of this soap, do it, it is awesome. Check out the ingredients below.
Reasons Original Formulation Is Great:
• Smells incredible
• Moisturizes skin and hair beyond belief
• Contains 4 certified organic ingredients
• No ingredients are created in a chemistry lab
• Works great as a body soap, shampoo, and shave soap
• Features premium formulation worthy of a premium price
• Does not contain sodium, dioxide, and oxide based ingredients
• Theobroma Cacoa (Cocoa) Seed Butter is the 1st ingredient
• Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)* is the 2nd ingredient
• Packaging claims it soothes razor bumps and burns, corrects dark spots, heals dry/rough skin, soothes symptoms of eczema & psoriasis – I believe it
Original Formulation - Ingredients:
Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*‚ Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*‚ Mango Butter*‚ Coconut Oil* and-or Palm Oil Soap Base‚ Apricot Oil‚ Nigella Sativa (Black Seed)‚ Honey‚ Vegetable Glycerin‚ Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Mineral Pigment or Vegetable Color‚ Essential Oil Blend.

I looked for a good soap that wouldn't dry out my skin in winter...this soap is the best stuff out there. No body wash gel or big brand name can come close to this

Corporate decisions ruined another perfect product
As others have recently noted here (and also Amzon reviews), this is no longer the original formula. The change occurred some time in the last few months of 2018.
This soap USED TO BE my all time favorite and I would buy 3-5 bars at a time. I don't spend a lot of money on toiletries, so at $5+ per bar of soap, the fact that I would buy a small supply whenever I found it on the shelf is really saying something.
It's a huge disappointment. I don't think I'll ever buy this again, unless by some miracle this company reverts to the old ingredient mix.
I used to drive home holding the box up to my nose and inhaling that delicious fragrance. Even the original packaging was beautiful. It used to be a matte-finish heavy cardstock box with a subtle silver foil typeface. But even that has changed, the packaging is now a cheap ugly box with tacky "glossy finish" boxing.
The new formula dries my skin and the old magical, amazing fragrance is now a faint memory, the new smell only hints at the old deliciousness, but also has a strong underlying "regular cheap soap" baseline aroma. The color and feel of the soap is also inferior.
I can only imagine that these changes were the result of some corporate decision to stretch the expensive ingredients by adding "filler" and maximizing profits while keeping up with the increasing demand of a killer original product.
If you compare the old and new ingredients, you can see it's a completely different product, and the original ratio of the "key ingredients" are now listed at the very end of the list (i.e. proportionally now the smallest quantity). Per the FDA: "On a product label, the ingredients are listed in order of predominance, with the ingredients used in the greatest amount first, followed in descending order by those in smaller amounts."
Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Mango Butter, Coconut Oil and-or Palm Oil Soap Base, Apricot Oil, Nigella Sativa (Black Seed), Honey, Vegetyable Glycerin, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Mineral Pigment or Vegetable Color, Essential Oil Blend
Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin, Fragrance, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sodium Gluconate, Mica, Palm Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, Palm Kernal Acid, Iron Oxides, Nigella Sativa Seed Oil, Juniperus Communis Fruit Extract, Mango Seed Butter, Avocado Fruit Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Willow Bark Extract, Willow Leaf Extract
What happened, Shea Moisture? I used to love this soap, please bring it back.

No longer the original formula or fragrance.
I have been using this soap for over two years and was so happy with it I was buying 5 bars at a time. The last shipment contained new packaging and the fragrance was completely different. The ingredients are very different too. Unfortunately I do not like it, and will have to look for a new soap. It doesn't seem likely that a company would make a change like this, only to change it back based on a few negative reviews. So sad.

Recently, I purchased 5 bars of this soap and received it today. It appears you have reformulated this product. Can I ask why? The new stuff is not as good as the original formula.
