Just a word of caution for all african black soap: you might want to read about the high pH of african black soap and how its alkaline nature affects the acid mantle of the skin.

I was using Alaffia's Liquid African Black Soap (both unscented and the vanilla almond) for almost a year as a body wash, with normal results. I've been lucky to not suffer from body acne or really …

Using it as a full body, hair and face wash. My hair turned out so soft that i didn't need conditioner. You won't get much lather but it cleanse really well without drying skin out. I love it that its natural, fair trade and environmentally responsible. This may become my staple soon.

I spotted this in Whole Food. I've read that some black soap can be very drying, but that was not my experience here. I alternated with unscented glycerin soap as a hand and general purpose soap around the house. My DH and I also used this for a few months as a body wash. I would repurchase. I have to say that I have not had as good experiences with Alaffia hair conditioner, but I really …Read more

I learned about Alaffia when I saw their products in Whole Foods. I didn't actually know this company made African black soap, and I was enamored of one of their other products, Everyday Shea body wash. I decided to try their Authentic African Black Soap to see if I would like it equally well as a body wash.

Alaffia's African Black Soap line has many different fragrances …

One of my favorite soaps of all time and always in my shower. It's gentle on sensitive skin and I love the smell. Alaffia's products are a staple for me.

This product is my holy grail! I used to suffer from severe acne until I started using this soap to cleanse my face.

I have oily and acne prone skin and have tried a variety of facial soaps in the past with no luck which normally resulted into even more break outs. I decided to read up on cleansing soaps that have natural ingredients and came across this product, which has amazing …

I believe I have finally found a black soap that doesn't dry me out to the point of itching. I know black soap is an exfoliant, but even with the addition of shea butter some products would still leave me itching after a shower. I tried Dr. Woods black soap, Shea Moisture's black soap body wash, and Shea Moisture's black soap shampoo as a body wash (why not, since it dealt with …Read more
