Product Review: African Black Soap

I recently purchased African Black Soap from the Beautiful Earth Natural Hair Haven for $450. I've heard good things about this product and have been using it for a week. Personally, I am pleased with the results after usage.

Product Description:

Heritage - African Black Soap, made from palm ash, tamarind extract, tar and plantain peel has been used in Africa for centuries to treat eczema, blemishes, oily skin, psoriasis, and other skin ailmemts. Historical references to Shae butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra's Egypt.

Nubian Heritage's authentic African Black Soap combines Shea Butter's healing and hydrating properties with the ancient medicinal properties of palm ash, plantain peel, tar and tamarind to balance and resolve problem skin. Our deep cleansing formula aids exfoliation and promotes new cell growth to reveal radiant, fresh, even and healthy-looking skin.


I give this product a 4.5/5. The first time I used it I immediately noticed differences in my skin. I usually wash with a cleanser or bar soap and I have to moisturize immediately. With the African Black Soap, my skin wasn't tight after use and it felt like I didn't need to moisturize right away. Over the week of using this product dark spots have been clearing up and I don't get oily for a very long time during the days. It also smells great and can be used to wash your hair. The bar soap is a little bit limited for that specific use but the raw version (without Shea Butter) is also available and can be manipulated much easier for the purpose of washing hair. I recommend this for persons with oily skin and eczema especially.

Peace, Love & Blaze,
