There is a lot of misconception about what genuine African Black Soap really is. Majority of "African" black soaps found in chain stores across the country made by popular brand names are nothing more than regular soap bars dyed black. In fact, in order to get soap in nicely formed shapes lye is used in the formulation. We, for example, take our black soap powder and cook it with modern hydroxide in order to make a hard bar. It maintains many of African Black Soap's properties but has lots of nourishing oils like olive and shea butter. Real African black soap is not made in Vermont. It is made in remote African villages by women who have passed down the secret of black soap making for centuries. 

Since 2001, Shea Terra Organics has been selling 100% pure and authentic African Black Soap. African Black Soap is a 100% pure botanical soap, unlike all other forms of soap which require lye. Ladies in the villages use local plantain and cacao pods to produce ash for their soap. They then cook in locally made oil and cook until the soap is completely black. This produces a soap which is more sulfuric. There are many methods of making black soap, but some can be very caustic and burn skin. Some companies take the easy way out and simply use dye. To make our African Black Soap Paste the women cook the soap into a spreadable paste. 
African Black Soap Paste is easy to use on skin for a multitude of uses. Used to wash skin each day greatly reduces blemishes. As a shaving soap, this paste decreases the amount of ingrown hairs as well as reduces dark spots.
