Lot # MY 302 OH01
Am curious if anyone has purchased multiple bottles of this product and have found some that smelled different than others. My first bottle I purchased was because I had smelled the bottle my cousin had and fell in love with it. Loved the smell, couldn't get enough of it so my next order I purchased 2 bottles seeing how it is a great value and that I use it on a lot of things. YUUCKK!!! These last two bottles smelled like some cheap dirty pine pitch dollar store cleaner. It wasn't at all like what I smelled or ordered the first time and I am bummed. Those 2 nasty bottles have a lot # of what is posted on my title. The first bottle I got that was wonderful and smelled awesome was different KY 270 012. Have any of you had this problem or have this lot number? Would appreciate any replies. Please note that my overall rating is for the last 2 bottles I purchased, if it was for the first bottle it would be 5 leaves for all...Thank you so much.

improved my rough hands
I purchased this for the first time in a health food store. I could not believe how it improved my winter dry skin so significantly. It has a wonderful fragrance and leaves skin soft. I use it in my foam hand soap dispenser because my hands get so dry in winter ....big improvement. Highly recommended.

Great Sharing with family & friends
I dscovered this product two years ago. It is great for my body and especially my face. I have tried other products on my face with no satisfaction. Dr Woods Pure Black Soap woith Organic Shea Butter keeps my face clean and soft. Most of all it does not dry my skin out. I am sending it to my friends and family to enjoy.
Thank you Swanson.

We've been using for a long time. The product has a good clean scent and lathers well. It also lasts a long time and we use it everyday. This is the only cleanser we have in our shower and will continue to be. Great bargain

Great product, good value. Leaves hands smooth. We take a small bottle with on our travels to avoid the commercial soap which leaves our hands chapped.

This is my first time trying black soap of any kind. I don't know if it was meant to be used as a shampoo but I bought it so I could use it for my face as well as hair. It took me a while to figure it out. I was using the normal amount like with regular shampoo, but it would leave my hair with a tacky/gummy texture, even after my hair had dried. It felt weird, like I needed to wash it again. I finally tried lathering it up first in my hand and then applying it to my hair and it seems to make my hair less tacky. There's not much in the way of suds, but I rub it into my scalp as best as I can. I have a very flaky scalp and itchy as well and I wash my hair everyday. If I don't it gets even more flaky. I don't use any type of hair products other than shampoo and conditioner. I still have flakes but my scalp doesn't itch as bad like it did before. I really like the fragrance and I use it to wash my face now instead of facial cleanser. I've been using Dr. Wood's Peppermint castile soap on my hair as well and I think that actually works better for the flaky scalp, so right now I'm alternating between this and the peppermint soap.

Easy way to use black soap
I like the cleansing benefits of black soap, but it can be drying. This product has shea butter added, so it's a good combination of ingredients that are friendly to your skin.

fresh and clean
I use this soap from my head to my toes. It has a nice lather but no greasy residue. It has a subtle fragrance and doesn't dry out my skin or hair.I find that the 32 oz is the most economical way to purchase this soap.

Great all around product
I just love this soap. I used it as a shampoo and it left the hair soft and manageable. I also used it as a bath wash and bubble bath with great results. I even used it as a cleaner and was surprised by its effectiveness. I would highly recommend this product.

I discovered Dr. Woods Black Soap/Shea Butter a few years ago and since that time I can't be without it. I bathe with it daily. My grand daughter, now two, has very sensitive skin. I've been bathing her in it since she was 6 months old. Gentle, yet cleansing.

been using this black soap for over a year now and love it. Great face wash, good smell, nourishes skin. other black soaps out there contain unnecessary chemicals; this only contains a few simple ingredients and the price is right. enjoy.

dr. woods black soap with organic shea butter
Dr.Woods Black soap with organic shea butter is terrific. It has made my skin so soft and beautiful. It also leaves a sweet scent and a beautiful glow. After using this wonderful product I have no need to use regular soap. I have told all of my family and friends about my discovery. Thanks I will always be grateful for having a cleanser with so many uses. For instance I can use this to wash my dishes, clean my floors, and many other uses. i am so pleased that I have found this product, for me and my family.

Was using Bronner's, this is cheaper, smells heavenly(highly subjective, smells a bit musky which I like) and is a little thicker which means less of it wasted in the shower. I use it exclusively as body wash, most of the time as my shampoo and we water it down(like 8/1 water/soap) and use it in those ubiquitous foam hand-soap pumpers.

I really like this soap. The scent is clean. I've seen
improvement in my skin since I've been using it.
I plan to keep plenty in stock.

feel good product
After looking at A LOT of the natural body wash products on this site I decided to try this. It looked like a good value considering the bottle size and the price. I really do like it for the most part. I like the smell, to me it is an earthy smell but it isn't a light scent so I can understand someone not liking it. My husband likes using it too. I bought it to use as a body wash but since the bottle said it can also be used for hair I tried it and I haven't used my old Tresseme since. It is a little watery and I wish that it would foam up a little longer than it does since it feels like it disappears quickly on my hair and on the shower puff. Due to this you have to use more soap compared to the commercial brand name washes. I am ok with that since I know this is healthier but I wonder if other natural products would be better with that issue. My hair is very fine and I don't have much hair; with my old shampoo I had to wash my hair every day because if I didn't it looked to greasy to me. Since I have been using this I don't have to wash my hair every day, I wash it every other day. It leaves my hair feeling "squeaky clean" but a little conditioner helps. After I blow dry my hair it feels the same as it did with my old shampoo. It isn't drying to my skin either. Overall I am very happy with it...I have continued to buy more bottles.
