There are many different types of bathing soap for dark skin, but they all have one common goal: to cleanse and moisturize the skin without causing irritation. The right bathing soap for dark skin will depend on your individual skin type, but some of the best options include those made with natural ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, or olive oil.
These ingredients can help to hydrate and nourish the skin, while also providing some protection against the sun.
20 Best Bathing Soap For Dark Skin
1. Ambi Face & Body Bar, African Black Soap – 5.3 oz
Cleanses and moisturizes skin from head-to-toe.
Infused with Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Cocoa and Plantain.
Soothes troubled skin.
Larger size compared to other leading bar soaps.
Wet face and body, lather soap and massage onto skin.
Adore this soap!! Very subtle scent that is amazing, gets you squeaky clean without drying out your skin and doesn’t leave black residue in the shower. I have fresh cartilage piercings and this was great for keeping them clean because of the simple ingredients and easily washed away with no residue.
MY FACE FEELS SO HYDRATED AND SOFT! I love this soap, I never knew my face could feel this soft without a moisturizer. I can admit I was a bit skeptical about using this on my face(I tend to breakout often when exposing the skin on my face to different products) but after the first use I notice a difference.
Not only with the smooth silky feeling I received after running my hand across, but my skin also looked brighter(not lighter). Almost as if my natural glow was coming through for the first time in months.
Definitely will repurchase. *Reason for the 4/5 stars is because of the itch I received with the first use. *.
I have skin discoloration spots and body acne usually in the summer, I use this product to relieve/prevent my body acne (back and chest). You know those white spots usually on your upper arms shoulders you get in the summertime when your skin starts “peeling” off even though you didn’t burn?? This product also helps with that! This is great for all of that and even your face.
I would have never thought to use this until someone told me to try it for the white shoulder spots I was getting. Now I use it all the time. It even smells amazing too! And CHEAP. Under $2 for the bar!.

Our story: SheaMoisture is the legacy of Sofi Tucker, a pioneering Mother of four and an entrepreneur, who sold shea butter, African Black Soap and homemade beauty preparations in Sierra Leone in 1912.
I love this body wash. I’ve been using it for about a year. I’m not typically a huge citrus smell fan in my personal care products, but this isn’t too overwhelming. It’s got more of a papaya scent than sharp citrus, but it’s definitely not sweet.
It lathers well, and it’s not drying because the surfactants are gentle. It’s got lots of glycerin and some oils and Shea butter, which make it really hydrating. My only complaint is it has those little jojoba ester beads in it that they add to make it seem exfoliating, and it’s just unnecessary and kind of cheapens the feel of the product in my opinion.
They aren’t an effective exfoliant since they dissolve immediately. It’s probably a formula choice they made to add to the papaya exfoliating experience, but I’d prefer it if it didn’t have the little beads.
It definitely makes my skin feel soft. Other than the beads, it’s great!.
I don’t know why but I just wish SheaMoisture would work on their presentation. Their products are lovely but I pass them right by because of the way they look. They are not visually appealing, and this product is no exception.
I received this product in my VoxBox. At first, the thought of slathering papaya scented anything all over my body just made me cringe. But once again, SheaMoisture surprised me! Not a fan of the scent, or the color, but the soap made my skin feel so soft and hydrated.
The scent didn’t linger after my shower which I appreciated. I’m just not a papaya fan. Whatever they use for the exfoliation, it’s gentle. Its teeny tiny pieces, yet I still feel like it gets the job done.
Will I make this product a staple in my shower routine? Not papaya! But if other scents become available, I surely would. For those who love papaya and are looking for a top notch, affordable, gentle yet reliable, full body exfoliation soap, this is a great choice!.
When I was a kid, my mom would always ground up papaya and apply it on her skin (and mine). She always said that papaya has a lot of amazing properties and can heal you from within. I never liked that as the scent of papaya really bothered me.
But, I have always wanted a skincare product with papaya extracts in it. I just didn’t want it to smell like a papaya. This product is amazing! The combination of papaya and Yuzu lemon just gives this body wash an extra kick.
And the best part is that body fragrances together make me very happy. I never imagined that I would ever find a papaya product that I would love. I am definitely repurchasing this when it’s over.

We originally purchased this item to see if it would help with my boyfriends eczema and I liked the smell and texture so wanted to use it as well. My boyfriend hasn’t noticed any eczema relief while using.
I’ve enjoyed the product for a few weeks consistently so I kept it on our bathroom counter. After wanting to rotate to using something else for the week, I put it in the bathroom drawer so avoid taking up counter space.
Well after a week, we wanted to compare the scent to another product and the lotion smelled like vinegar. Vinegar is not a listed ingredient so I contacted their customer service and they noted that while the scent may change based on how you store it (due to the natural ingredients), it shouldn’t smell how I’ve described (like toe jam/vinegar).
They’ve reported it to their production team after getting the UPC and lot #. Customer service was great!.
I am in my bathroom having just gotten out of the shower only to discover the African Black soap ingredients are completely different. 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.
Suffice to say 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 and actually as I’m writing this kind of terrible. Now, I’m actually quite sensitive to synthetic smells but your original 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 now Aloe?!? When it was litterally the last ingredient on the original bottle. Along with this other ingredients are missing, removed, and reordered and not for the better.
I love everything #SheaMoisture when it comes to hair so I was super excited to try this Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus body lotion with Songyi Mushroom. Turns dull skin bright and radiant. It’s on the thicker side so it coats the skin nicely.
Once you rub it in it isn’t greasy at all. Smells Great. Like a field of Hibiscus flowers. Has Shea Butter and Coconut Oil for added hydration. Best used right after a shower or bath to seal in all that goodness.
SmellGood is registered trademarks. Buy authentic products from SmellGood only. Benefit of using African black soap from SmellGood : relieves acne and removes blemishes, prevents rashes, itching, dry and scaly skin from developing, cleans pores and rejuvenates the skin leaving your skin fresh and clean, cleans up pimples, rashes, eczema, fungus, ringworm, acne and body odor.
Great for makeup removing. Direction: Wet your skin and hair well, apply soap gently as it may contain small particles which may scratch or damage your skin. Wash and rinse skin and hair with cool water to help retain more moisture.
My friend recommended this to me and he has flawless skin! I have acne and I’ve had it for what seems like forever! My acne isn’t bad but recently a lot of little bumps would pop up on my forehead and I’ve tried so many things to get rid of them.
So far I’ve been trying this product and it’s been a week and I’ve seen very little bit of results. I can tell you that if I had a somewhat big pimple, I would wash my face with this soap before bed and it would shrink up in the morning.
However, this really dries out my skin even if I apply coconut oil right after. I’ll write another review in about 2 weeks or so but so far, I’m not impressed.
Ok let me just say I would definitely buy this soap AGAIN! Using 100% pure black soap on my face daily, has helped with my acne outbreaks on my face. It lathers very well and you don’t need to use much to wash.
The only issue I had for my skin was that if I wash my face twice a day with the black soap it tends to dry out my skin but I just add almond oil to moisturize and my face never felt so soft.
African black soap, made from palm ash, tamarind extract, tar and plantain peel has been used in Africa for centuries to treat eczema, acne, oily skin, psoriasis, and other skin ailments. This healing product should be used daily to balance and resolve problem skin.
For acne prone troubled skin. With oats, aloe vitamin E. No parabens, phthalates, paraffin, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, animal testing, PABA, synthetic color, DEA, or animal ingredients.
We loved the original one, but this one is hilarious that they’re trying to pass it off as a new and improved version. The ingredients changed considerably where they have taken away all the reasons I used to purchase this.
There’s more Phenoxyethanol than actual natural ingredients in here and it’s nearly at the top of the igredients list. Seriously? That’s so bad for babies! They have added other preservaties as well because that’s apparently we need to wash babies in nothing but preservaties with a hint of oil.
They have added Cocamidopropyl Betaine which can cause skin irritation if not immediatley washed off. Babies doen’t need this crap! Shea butter is now the only organic ingredient. SELL OUTS! I will never use this on my baby again and will discontinue using all their products since they have abandoned the bulk of their initial ideals.
Guess that’s what happens when bigger comapnies purchase these small businesses. They charge the same but put crappier ingredients in to line their pockets more.
My family uses this soap as body soap, also shampoo, and use on our dogs fur. YES. WE. DO. We mix with various Shea Moisture shampoo products to create the perfect product for each family members hair.
For example my daughter uses the Shea Moisture shampoo for thick curly hair but the shampoo itself leaves her hair a bit too greasy so she parts it with this Black Soap. The Shea Moisture miracle shampoo I use also leaves my hair with a texture I do not desire but I love the miracle shampoo smell so much, I add in this Black Soap and it makes the perfect concoction for my hair type and personal preference.
We have been using this soap for years and we love it for so many reasons. It’s my daily soap for my face in the mornings and evenings, it’s a body wash, AND shampoo (and pet shampoo). Works great on our Brussels Griffon pup—keeps his long hair looking and feeling really great.
Literally use it on our entire family! Please keep making this soap. I can’t even imagine what I’d have to endure to replace this product!! Thank you Shea Moisture! We love this soap in particular, but SO many of your products!.
Let’s start out by saying if I could give less than 1 star I would. I purchased shea moisture baby shampoo the night before last. I usually only use hello bello baby wash for my baby and have never had a problem.
The description on the shea moisture baby label is made to seem its for sensitive skin. After bath last night my baby woke up in a rash head to toe after using this product. After some research I learned I’m not the only mother who has bought this only to learn its harsh chemicalsbare causing severe rashes.
Please stop selling this. Or at least remove “for sensitive skin” off of the label or ” gentle enough for everday use”. I’m so disappointed and my poor baby is hurting. I’m not going to add photos for privacy reasons.
The benefits of using black soap are numerous. Some of those benefits include deep cleaning of the skin, works on almost all skin types from rough to dry to sensitive skin, helps clear skin bumps and spots, helps relieve acne, oily skin, and other skin problems, works great as a makeup remover, Works against premature facial lines and wrinkles, and can be lathered and used as a shampoo.
Directions: Rub the bar between your hands or a washcloth to lather up the soap. Then, rub the soap on to your skin and hair. Do not rub the bar of soap directly onto your hair as your hair will get stuck to the bar.
Black soap absorbs water very easily, so do not let it sit in standing water or the entire bar will dissolve. Black soap is softer than commercial soap, so the soap comes off more easily and less rubbing of the bar is need to release an ample amount of soap.
The African Black Soap is a soft milled soap with a very high natural glycerin content. Meaning, it readily absorbs moisture from the air. Therefore, store your Black Soap in a very dry location or in a sealed plastic bag.
If the soap absorbs too much moisture, the soap will become very soft. and will result in a thin white coloured film covering the soap. The white film is not mould, it is a reaction from the absorption of water from the air.
Keep the soap in a dry location to avoid the development of white film during storage. Ingredients: Cocoa pod ashes, plantain skins ashes, and palm oil, & fragrance.
If I’m being honest there is a lot of pros and cons with this soap. I think I was using it more that I was supposed to that why I experienced those cons. You are not supposed to use this soap daily!! You can use it up to 2-3 times a week I wish I need that cause I noticed my hands were the only part of my body that was cry no matter how often I moisturize it and it went from soft hands to really harsh and dry hands.
It’s a great soap if you use it right. Great quality and it does not have a scent! Perfect size too!! If I’m being honest I noticed a lot of benefits of this soap almost fully got rid of acne which is awesome!! I would recommend this soap just don’t use it so often! If this review was helpful give my review a like! I would appreciate that :).

I have use this for 15 years and it is the best “soap” I have ever used for squeaky clean skin without drying or leaving any residue. The best for acne since it cleans out pores without leaving something behind to collect in them.
Way nertter than Sastid or Dial. It’s what I use for cleaning my glasses, too, since there is no residue. I used to use the Clear Basis when it was available, and I have not found the vitamin addition to be better or worse.
The only downside is that a bar is used up kind of quickly. I’d say you would use up 3 bars in the time it would take two use up 2 bars of regular soap. Not easily found in stores anymore, so I buy in bulk to get free shipping.
For more than 20 years I have used this soap for my dry and sensitive skin. Unfortunately, it isn’t always available in the store – so I was happy to find it online. The value and timeliness of delivery was appreciated and I would not hesitate to order online again.

I really like this Shea Moisture Purple Rice Water Violet Revival Bar Soap. It smells amazing! It creates a really nice lather. I feel nice and cleansed after using this soap. The only thing I don’t like about this soap is the overly squeaky clean feel that I have afterwards.
It’s almost like wax. Also, my husband has really sensitive skin and he couldn’t use this soap because it makes him itch and become super dry with patches on his stomach and legs. I would not recommend this to someone with sensitive skin.
For a person who can use any soap though, I would definitely consider giving this one a try. I think you’ll like it.
The color is very attractive. I haven’t really seen a purple bar of soap before and this one is so nice. It smells amazing when you first open it. The soap was easy to lather on my washcloth and rinsed off well without any residue.
It left my skin feeling amazing and very smooth. I didn’t have any irritation while using this soap bar. I’ve used rice water in my hair but never on my skin til now and it definitely makes it feel moisturized.
The size of the bar is nice too. I used this on my toddler and it also didn’t cause any skin problems.
I’ve been using my shea moisture velvet skin bar soap for a couple of days and I’m totally impressed by my skin results. My skin is normally dry so after using this soap, my skin feels soft and hydrated.
This bar soap also smells so good with the natural ingredients so it doesn’t irritate the skin. Everyone in my household uses it so it’s good for men or women. I love the size of the bar so I don’t have to worry about it running out as fast as other soap bars.
This is a new favorite that I will keep on using and I would highly recommend this soap bar to anyone with sensitive skin.
Now you can have the smoothest, radiant skin around with African Black Soap Body Wash from SheaMoisture. SheaMoisture uses recipes handed down from a healer and give it a modern twist. They use only the best ingredients gathered from around the world to provide the best products out there.
With their roots starting in 1912 in Sierra Leone the bring us products that have been used by generation after generation for beautiful skin.
Every fall, winter, and spring my hands get very very dry and crack. I also get an odd rash on my wrists when my hands get really dry (ezcema?). I have tried a lot of “moisturizing” body washes, but nothing compares to this.
After just one use my skin cleared up almost completely; incuding any dry skin, small bumps, and acne. I also combine this with the Shea Moisture African Black Soap lotion. I was unsure of the scent at first, especially because I bought it online without smelling it, but it has a warm vanilla scent with a hint of a cocoa and licorice in the background.
The scent has defintely grown on me and now I can’t go without using this body wash or else my skin goes back to it’s old ways. If you struggle with dry skin I highly reccommend!.
SMOOTH, CREAMY AND LUXURIOUS!!! NEEDS A MATCHING FRAGRANCE!! This was one of the first scents from Shea Moisture’s Body Care line that I tried, just last year. I had tried the hand and body scrub, but was kind of skeptical to try the Bod Wash until this year.
While it is a bit runny, it is really LUXURIOUS to use. This also has the same lasting power as the hand and body scrub in this same exact scent. This one is worth the money in my BOOK. I have a VERY DETAILED REVIEW of this exact Body wash on my Youtube Channel, for anyone that is interested in trying Cruelty Free Body care products.
The previous formulation was amazing. It was rich, thick, super moisturizing and smelled better. The current formulation is good, but it’s very thin and runny, you end up using a lot more product. It’s also not as moisturizing.
The scent is a bit polarizing. I don’t particularly care for the scent, but it doesn’t really linger after the shower, so I can deal with it. Something about it smells a little off and that wasn’t the case before.
I wish they’d go back to the original formula, but for now this is ok.
Sheamoisture’s African Black Soap Face & Body Bar is designed to cleanse, hydrate and calm problem skin. Helps to balance oily skin for clearer complexions. Use daily. made with natural and certified organic ingredients.
oats help soothe irritated skin while absorbing excess oil. aloe moisturizes and calms dry sensitive skin. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant highly effective in protecting skin from free radical damage.
This lasts forever if you’re only using it on your face. I use this for my second step in my double cleanse after my oil-based cleanser. I am very particular that it sits on a special soap holder in my shower to avoid bacteria growth or getting soggy.
Lathers up nicely, very budget friendly and pretty easily accessible. The only CON is that it can leave my skin feeling tight, which you don’t want; however, it hasn’t increased any dryness or caused any other issues, so I’m okay with that.
Great on acne! I am typically going into my skincare regiman after using this, so the tightness doesn’t last long. It’s been around since, I believe, 1912! Personally, I would prefer a bottle or pump version (the only one I found had been sold out ).
I would say i have normal skin for the most part. There are the days where it feels on the dryer side or at time it can feel oily. It really just depends on the weather and what exactly i am doing and such.
One thing I truly hate is when you wash your face at the end of the day and go to get in bed but it still doesn’t feel clean or refreshed. So browsing Target one day i stumbled upon this stuff and decided to give it a shot.
The BEST decision I’ve ever made. My skin felt clean and well refreshed. I didn’t feel like i needed two other face washes to get that fresh face feeling. Products are different for everyone and that’s just how it is.
But this product changed the game for me lol. One down fall is it does get a little messy, so make sure to buy a container with it LOL. It doesn’t stain and it had a great scent to it. Affordable and effective.
This soap smells heavenly. I don’t use it on my face, but it’s my go-to for full body and hand soap by the sink. I switched to bar soaps a while back to save money and plastic, and got a bonus – this soap works way better than other of the liquid or foamy stuff! Gets all my sunscreen off at the end of the day, and powers through the make-up on my hands after applying (I don’t really use any tools so I’ve got all sorts of makeup to wash off), but still it is not drying.
It’s amazing. I like the smaller, more grasp-able size of this bar compared to their original size. I also like that’s it’s dark in color. My soap tray is dark, so the buildup is way less noticeable than light colored soaps.

Our Story; Sofi Tucker started selling Shea Nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling Shea Butter, African Black Soap and her homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside.

I initially bought this soap after seeing such an improvement in my clients skin. I asked her what she was using because her skin was looking so much better over the months of me looking down on her while shampooing her hair.
She told me what she was using. I immediately started using the product along with my husband. He now let’s me know to contact my customer when he sees it on sale. Like He discovered it. Lol!! However it is very hard to find it right now and my husband was giving ours away to family members fir them to try.
Down to two bars and having a hard time at my Rite Aid store down the street Keep saying it’s not available. Y’all can just send me some fir promoting your product. Probably why I can’t find it!!!!!.
I’ve known about African black soap for awhile now, but recently discovered Shae Moisture brand. I’ve been extremely pleased with this brand and actually was a little surprised how great everything I’ve tried from them has been! African black soap is WONDERFUL for problem skin such as, acne, dryness, psoriasis, itchy/extremely sensitive skin (which I have), etc.
I usually only use natural products on my skin because anything other then natural sourced ingredients will make me completely break out in rashes and irritate my skin for days. I decided to try this after switching from bar soap to bar soap of amazing brands and products I have loved for years, they just weren’t cutting it.
I now live in the Arizona desert, which not only being VERY exposed to the hot sun, it is ridiculously dry here. Never mind that, the water is EXTREMELY hard. All those factors alone; nothing was cutting it.
The FIRST DAY I used this I felt like I instantly had relief all over my body, almost like I let out a breath of stress. Weight lifted off. Within a couple days, redness, irritation and rashes all disappeared and cleared up.
I not only use it over my entire body but also use it as face soap too – keeps my face clean, looking great and I swear almost even toned like I just used a toner. The scent is really hard to describe, I personally don’t mind it at all.
If you have ever smelt a real African black soap – that’s exactly the scent. No different smelling then others I’ve tried in the past. What is even cooler is they have an entire African black soap line! Liquid wash, moisturizer, etc! It’s really hard to find all these pros in one soap for me and I found it!!! Even harder to find something that feels like it actually CLEANS your skin, leaves no residue behind BUT makes your skin baby soft and smooth.
THIS DOES!!!!!!! My all time favorite body soap. I recommend this over and over again and honestly do not have ONE negative comment about this soap! Since being so impressed with this soap – I’ve bought other products from this line and love them all.
So this soap is absolutely incredible. I’ll just start with that. I have used so many OTC scrubs, deep pore cleansers, pore refiners, moisturizers, skin care systems including proactiv and cytology, and to no avail, I still suffered from acne.
I’m in my late 20s, I’ve suffered with pretty moderate acne for a good chunk of my life and have never found anything that worked. Until now. After the first use, I could tell my face was smoother, after a few days, I could tell my existing acne was healing and i wasnt getting any new ones.
After a week, my skin was clear. After 2 weeks my face completely smooth, no new breakouts, and I am happier than ever. Not only is my skin clear, by my confidence is boosted. I work in sales so I am face to face with people all day, i finally feel like the first time in my life, people aren’t just staring at my breakouts.
I will recommend this soap to anyone that can relate. This soap is AWESOME! The left set of pictures i attached were from about 2 months ago. The others are from this afternoon. I wash my face twice a day with this soap and it doesn’t dry my face out at all, I dont use anything else with it.

This was one of the few soaps I would eyeball every time I went to the supermarket and ethnic aisles. One day I decided to purchase this since there was a three pack on sale for $1. 99. It has since been a great find since I use this daily on my body and I’ve had no issue with breaking out.
I’ve found it to be helpful in keeping the keratosis pilaris and eczema on my arms/legs to a minimum. It’s also got this creamy claylike texture when lathered and surprisingly the bar is small, dense, and able to last through an entire month regardless of it’s compact size.
I do also like the smell and since I’m a very active yet forgetful person, I’ve found that on the days I forgot deodorant I actually had little to no odor when using this soap.
It doesn’t have a strong smell. It lathers smooth on the skin I used this on my entire body and face. I didn’t like how it felt on me. Felt a bit dry. I LOVE the price 98cents. I will continue to use this everyday to see results.
Bought this product on Amazon when I was about to buy my regular soap. I was getting a little tired of the other soap staining my shower and wondered, ‘hey what’s this one?’ This so is super soft, it doesn’t make me break out in body hives, like most bar soap.
It is also mild enough for my face. I think my face likes it a lot. It doesn’t dry out my skin. Like most bar soap, it does leave residue.

Aloe and oil are also useful for the treatment of sunburn. The SheaMoisture soap bar features an organic blend of beneficial ingredients, which are a wonderful alternative for those with sensitive skin.
I bought this to scrub into a loufah for my body. I’m 23 yr old male, and suffer from re-occuring back acne. Wanted to give this a try! This soap bar smells amazing, and it made my body feel very clean afterwards.
I tried it on my face, and it was quite drying. Even after adding toner, serums, and moisturizers. Be careful if you have already dry skin. My face is combination oily (oily T-zone), and my body is just normal.
It didn’t dry out my body. Will continue to buy and use as a body soap! Disclaimer: I am mixed latino-asian, I am not quite sure if this counts as an “authentic” African black soap. I will leave that decision to those who are able to.
It is a hard bar, that does not squeeze easily. I’ve read that authentic African soaps will be able to squeeze pretty easily, once wet. Just a disclaimer for whom it may concern.
Marius Fabre’s Black Soap with Olive Oil is made using the traditional hot saponification process in a cauldron. Black body soap made from olive oil is a natural emollient which, with the combined effect of the exfoliating scrub glove, eliminates dead cells in order to refine the texture of the skin.
It also allows a better hold of the tan. Excellent before waxing, it will leave your skin soft and velvety. Also ideal for men who want an effective but gentle shave. It is recommended to take a shower or a hot bath, lasting at least 10 minutes, to prepare the skin for exfoliation.
Soap with black soap by massaging with the palm of the hand, all over the body. Rub vigorously with the special hammam scrub glove to remove impurities, emphasizing the areas where the skin is thickest: knees and elbows.

I received these products for free from Influenster and NUBIAN HERITAGE in exchange for my honest review. My first Voxbox!!! This product really surprised me. I used the soap all day and it hasn’t disappointed at all.
The soap has a pleasing scent I love the smell of oats. My hands have been very dry since the pandemic started I wash my hands constantly and use hand sanitizer so much they have felt very rough, just in one day I could feel the difference on my hands like I did a moisturizing treatment while washing my hands it’s incredible.
I have never noticed this item before now it will definitely be on my radar and shopping list.
Enjoy the healing powers of nature with organic raw shea butter soap. This moisturizing bar soap can be used on your face and body. The anti-aging face and body bar is rich in shea butter, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and stretch marks and eases many skin irritations, such as psoriasis, eczema and sunburn.
It’s scented with frankincense and myrrh, soothing to your mind as well as your body. With regular use, shea moisture shea butter soap will help give you smoother, softer and healthier skin.
So I recently purchased. On their website they say this bar will “gently cleanse and moisturize skin” as it’s specifically for made for those with 𝙙𝙧𝙮 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙣, so skin that’s lacking lipids as it doesn’t produce enough natural oils on its own, and yet the first two ingredients in this bar are (high pH) alkaline soaps- “sodium palmate” and “sodium palmate kernelate”.
Both of these will not only 𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙥 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗶𝘁’𝘀 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙖𝙡 𝗼𝗶𝗹𝘀, they’ll also throw your skin’s natural pH balance completely off track. Causing irritation, redness, and. you got it, even more dryness.
So that amazing ethically sourced “raw shea butter” will do your skin no good when it’s paired with harsh ingredients like these! It’s such a waste. Your skin should never feel as uncomfortable and tight as mine felt after washing with this bar.
If it does, then it’s time for something better. Please don’t make the same mistake as I did, and assume that just because every other product you’ve had from a company has been great, means that everything they make will follow suit.
Unfortunately you can’t trust alot of the information (that most) companys provided today, as it tends to be more sale’s tactics than actual information, and can be very misleading.
Great smell but not too overpowering. My husband and I both love it. A portion of the money goes to a charitable cause, as well. All natural ingredients. The only down side is that is does leave more of a residue to clean in the tub than other soaps, but it’s the only soap that we’re hooked on for years so it’s worth it to us!.

I love the way this soap smells and it happens to be a pretty green color (my favorite) as well. As far as how it performs I would say this is a good complexion bar, it suds up very well and leaves the skin squeaky clean.
My biggest complaint is that it can be pretty drying so should be followed by moisturizer, but I will say it definitely get the skin really nice and clean and I have been happy to use this on the body as well as the face.
I would recommend this bar to those that would like to incorporate cocoa butter into their skincare and want an effective soap that smells lovely and natural, also those who use a double wash system this is for sure a good soap to follow up a cleansing oil! I will say that I saw no real improvement in any acne or pigmentation problems but I did not use this soap very regularly so I am not surprised that I cannot speak to any of those possible claims.
If I didn’t still have some left I might even buy this soap again and give it a try, as I’m turning 30 (literally tomorrow) I’m revamping my skincare yet again and this has always been good at preventing any possible body acne and whatnot so is definitely a good soap that I would indeed recommend.
I just love the benefits of black soap! I love the nice sent, rite along with the nice lather!!! Like other black soaps I used, I always had to wash the shower out right after due to the the soap turning the tub black! But this one doesn’t.
I use this as one of my fave washes also and is has my face feeling smooth clear and I’m getting my glow back!.
Authentic African Black Soap from Alaffia is triple milled and made from a centuries-old recipe. Featuring fair-trade and Certified Organic shea butter and orangutan-safe West African palm oil, this cleanser is cooked for six hours before curing in the sun for three weeks.
Alaffia African Black Soap Triple Milled is great. My skin is dry and somewhat sensitive and benefits from using this soap. It smells nice and leaves my skin clean and moistened. It has a pleasant, earthy scent.
I choose Alaffia due to its commitment to empower African communities through the advancement of Fair Trade, education, sustainable living and gender equality; environmental sustainability and non-GMO products and for being cruelty-free.
It’s easy to make a commitment to supporting Alaffia when the products they produce are so good.
OH YES!!!!!! I am having huge problems with eczema and Id like to just cut to the chase and make my primary care physician Rx me some Dupixent tablets, but I have lousy insurance which would NOT cover it.
So I used this soap, along with dermaplast(which has 20% benzocaine in it to help numb the skin) and some DMSO (carrier agent, but ut can be dangerous because it takes what ever is mixed with it on the skin and transports it ALL OVER THE BODY.
But I use it with great caution. So what it does is 1. the soap helps get rid of the skin irritation and the DMSO and Dermaplast help numb the skin. I do NOT recommend this if you dont know what you are doing.
You could wind up in the hospital ER. BUT I also used the soap on my hair, which is fine, white caucasian hair, wavy in places. It did a FANTASTIC job in helping my scalp which is also mad and left my hair and scalp in wonderful condition.
I have also just ordered the liquid soap version of this because it will be better for washing my hair I think. Like I said the bar worked great, but Ill use that on my body and then use the liquid on my hair/scalp.
Lathers well, emollient, and lasts for a while. I recommend if you have never used black soap before to only leave it on your face less than 15 seconds otherwise you can get a rash. Once you can tolerate it, leave it on your skin up to a minute to get all the benefits of black soap.
This one isn’t as drying as some others I’ve used and feels nice on your skin.
