Alaffia Authentic African Black Soap Peppermint Reviews

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shamoo! Doesn't strip the hair, don't need to use conditioner anymore. November 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Peppermint refreshing in the summer I'm not sure it has been extremely beneficial yet as I have only been using it for a few weeks. The peppermint in it though is very refreshing for the summer months! I think it will take a little longer to see the "effects" it has. I will probably order another bottle to give it a good try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just wonderful soap! We use this soap in the shower and in the kitchen for hand washing. The peppermint cuts body odor without the need for harsh "deodorant" type chemical-filled soaps. It rinses clean and leaves skin soft. This is the only soap we use other than my homemade goat's milk soap. March 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Sudsy Soap We love this soap! Due to food allergies, we CAN NOT use anything with Gluten, Dairy or Citrus - not even citric acid. The pepperment version of this soap doesn't have any of those things. Finding something without those things to wash my 10 yo daughter's hair was a real challenge. This fits the bill and works well!
