Customer Ratings & Reviews

Raw Black Soap with Fair Trade Shea Butter - Original is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soap up! This makes a good lathering hand soap. My wife saved one of those liquid soap dispensers, and we pour this into it and use it both in the bathroom and in the kitchen. We feel that it is better than other soaps that are on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Face and Body Wash I really like black soap, and I especially like this one with shea butter. Great clean feeling. The fragrance seems to have been toned down a bit, which I appreciate. I don't like fragranced products normally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for everything! We use this soap for everything. Have even used it for shampoo. Use it on our dogs as a safe soap alternative for them. Works well and is really economical. Skin is nice after using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is A Good Thing I like this soap very much--it is my first experience with liquid bath soap, and I find it very mild and soothing to my dry skin. The fragrance is very nice and not overpowering. I see now that one needs a bath sponge or "pouf" in order to use liquid soap economically and effectively, and so I later purchased one from Swanson. I definitely recommend this soap, and will keep reordering. This is an excellent company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from black soap with shea Leaves your skin feeling silky. Good ingredients too! Maybe a pump would be easier to dispense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin loves! I love this soap. Its effective and performs just as the label spells out. I use this face to toe, and my skin has not experienced any drying. It cleanses well without all those harsh ingredients that are so common in other washes. I plan to continue using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Black Soap with Shea Buter like the moisturizing effects of Shea butter, this liquid is nice, washes off clean. I'm not a huge fan of the fragrance but it works for everything from hair to toes. Good product, I order it frequently.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GENTLE 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
