It is not only for black people, anyone can use it. I am Asian and it work for me too. I definitely recommend it. Using it is a good way to stay away from all the chemicals.

Hey Shisimagum I'm still using the shea butter by jason and so far no breakouts although it feels greasy when it goes on but my face doesn't feel like my pores are clogged. What are the benefits shea butter has? I'm only use it 3 times a week, I fear more than that will break me out.

Shea butter is great. I works as a sunblock, i helps heal the scars you have, and doesn't cause future breakouts.

shisimagum,

Okay, I have been using the black soap now for about a week. It seems to be doing okay. I'm getting the same results from it that I do from the Auromere soap. But the black soap is not as drying as the Auromere, so I'll definitely keep the black soap as my winter/cooler months soap and the Auromere for my warmer months soap.

i have been using the black soap and shea butter for a whole month now. I skin is great. i don't break out that much anyone and my scars are fading because of the shea butter. i just went back to get 2 more pounds of black soap. I can't get enough of this.

shisimagum,

I like this soap. It seems to be doing okay, but I think I like the Ayurvedic soap better. I'm gonna finish using what I got of the black soap though. The guy I bought it from takes FOREVER to ship. So I think I'm going back to the Ayurvedic soap. But I did not break or get bad results from the black soap. I just think my skin feels better from using the Ayurvedic soap.

That guy should not be running a business! Then get it from someone else. I actually enjoy the black soap better because the smell isn't as strong, it drys me out less, and it is a great shampoo. You actually don't have to get it online. You can buy it from african stores.

I saw an African store the other day. It was the first time I had ever seen it, but I think it has been there a while judging from its exterior. I'll check them out and see what they got. If they got the soap there, then I'll buy some and stick with it. I have to admit that that was my main reason for not re-ordering any more of it-the time it takes to ship it. I'll check out that African store though and see what's what.

Yeah go check it out. You will probably get a better deal at the african store. I buy mine in 2 pound chunks, but my roommate brought pre-cut bar for only 2 dollars there. Much better then prices i have seen online.

Re: African shea butter and Black soap
 
I am fed up with acne! The changing winter weather is also drying out my skin and lips! GRRRR!!! I have read a lot about this Black Soap and Shea Butter and placed an order from an all-natural website that sells both products (nasabb.com). I am hoping to clear up my acne with the Black Soap and moisturize my skin with the Shea Butter without clogging my pores. Any updates or words of encouragement from people using the products?? Thanks y'all! :angel:

Re: African shea butter and Black soap
 
I think you would be happy with it. My acne had cleared up soo much. Try it with a BP on spot treatment such as Oxy. My acne is almost gone. Good luck to you too.

Laura,

I use the Black soap, too, and I really like it!! I'm using it during the winter b/c it doesn't seem to dry my skin out too bad. I'm gonna be ordering some more of the soap from that same website that you are. I came across that website last week. I'm gonna wait on the shea butter b/c right now I'm using jojoba oil for moisturizing, and that works fine for me. Might order the shea butter at a later time.

If you think about it, can you post when you get the black soap from Nassab? I would mainly be interested in knowing how long it took for you to receive it.

Thanks!

Hey Shisi. I was just wondering if the soaps have any fragrance to them? I know where I can buy some of it in my town but there is a very strong scent to them. Do you recommend using heavily scented?

shisimagum 12-14-2004 09:42 AM

Re: African shea butter and Black soap
 
Real black soap isn't scented. It is not suppose to smell fruity or flowery. The smell of natural black soap is suppose to be earthy, i can't explain it. Also, the soap shouldn't be packaged. There is alot of imitation of black soaps out there, so be careful. The soap is brown not black and it is suppose to look like a rock.
