    vegan soap works great & smells good

    "I love the smell of it, it's all plant ingrediens like shea butter, coconut butter, palm ash & essential oils.

    it cleans good without stripping natual skin oils (doesn't dry out the skin) like some other soaps do."

    Excellent Product!

    "I have problems with dermatitis on my hands when it gets cold out. From October to May, my hands are a mess. Don't want to be gross but my fingers break out in little blisters that crack, ooze, and itch to the point of pain.

    For years, I have tried to battle it with oatmeal soap, oatmeal hand cream, and cortizone cream. It hasn't worked well. Sometimes things calm down but it comes back with a vengence.

    I got a bar of this soap for free (Recyclebank coupon) and figured I'd give it a try. I did a little research on African Black Soap because I am highly skeptical of unsubstantiated product claims and pseudoscience.

    I got the soap late October/early November, 2014 (it is now January 2015). My hands had already begun to break out a couple of weeks before. After a couple of days of using this soap, they cleared up! I couldn't believe it! Using the soap several times a day (especially after washing the dishes), my fingers aren't a blistering, cracking, oozing, itchy, painful mess. Here and there one tiny blister would pop up, but it would be gone in a day or two.

    I haven't used any cortizone cream. Usually, by this point, I would have gone through 3 large tubes. I also have rarely used the oatmeal hand cream because I just forget about it since my hands are clear.

    I will be getting more of this soap. "

    Incomplete Ingredient List

    "Please define what is "african black soap base". How am I to know that this soap is all-natural and suitable for my hyper-sensitive skin if all ingredients are not listed?"
