  1. Jonathan W.

    Hey friends! Here’s a wonderful product that I HIGHLY recommend. I’ve been using Alaffia African Black Soap long before I became vegan and have loved it for years. I have oily hair like an otter and it cleanses it quickly, squeaky clean, with no residue and it’s good for all hair types. It’s also a great body wash, face soap, and shaving soap. (I’m a guy so yes, I use it for everything.) I efficiently emerge from the shower squeaky clean, non-irritated, and hair properly fluffified. It has no parabens, no animal testing, no synthetic fragrance, non GMO, no SLS, gluten-free, biodegradable, safe for babies; AND the proceeds purchase bicycles for residents in Togo, toward women’s health clinics in Africa, purchasing school supplies, and toward reforestation projects.I much prefer the peppermint scent. My shower instantly becomes an aromatherapy fog, but it rinses so cleanly, I’ve never smelled like a breath mint afterward.I cannot recommend it highly enough.

  2. D. Schneider

    I specifically seek soaps that don’t dry my skin. This one feels very good and I love the smell.

  3. Robert Silverman

    Makes shaving very easy

  4. HEAVY DUTY !!!

    I like it.

  5. Janie Martin

    I learned of this African Black Soap a long time ago from the Dr. Oz show. One bottle lasts me a long time. I love this stuff especially the peppermint included in it. I always use it on my face as first choice.Janie Martin Singing entertainer.

  6. pascale green

    Very good product just wish it was thicker because it’s hard to bathe shower with runny liquid but great at the sink. It definitely great on skin but goes quick because of the liquidity most of my bottle gone less then a week to my shower floor then my body otherwise it would be perfect

  7. doxiegrl

    You will want to buy a bottle for your sink and a bottle for your shower because this is the best thing to ever happen to oily skin. This product has very mild soothing scents and gently but thoroughly cleansed skin. Do not worry about overly intrusive scents. I have used the tea tree, peppermint, and tangerine and are very mild scents.

  8. Ethel White

    Love the feeling of my skin. Will be ordering the product again.

  9. Sonia

  10. SarasotaSophia
