african black bar soap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I prefer this bar soap. It is a black soap - purplish in color. It does have specks of other colors in there. The soap lathers well. It'll activate better with water, meaning if it's not lathering, just add water. I can just wet my hand, run my wet hand over the soap bar, and clean my face. I can wet the washcloth, and the soap just a little, and not really have to drag the soap for a really long time to get a very nice lather going. It smells nice. I actually mean it smells very nice. I'll wrap this review up by saying that I prefer this brand of soap to the others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FOR ACNE!! This product not only smells good, but it helps with acne I've bothered with acne for several years! Plenty of ointments, antibiotics, etc. This and coconut oil is my daily routine no more pimples! Thank you

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good lather, bad fragrance I really like the thick foam and silky lather that the soap produces, and I think it is helping my face skin, which tends to suffer from dry, red patches (dermatitis). However, I am not really a fan of the "natural" fragrance, which smells very artificial. The ingredients list "Natural fragrance and/or essential oil," but frankly I doubt there's much essential in it, and "natural" is one of those meaningless (when not misleading) terms that serious organic businesses should drop entirely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Soap is Amazing! I have oily skin. This soap has helped tone down the oil so my face doesn't look like an oil slick by the end of the day. I've used it on my hair and as a body wash, too. I love this soap! I also love the smell. I've tried a few Nubian Heritage products and I've never been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cured Agent Orange rash I have suffered a rash for years brought on by Agent Orange exposure. It was recommended by a fellow vet and it changed my life for the better. It calmed the itching and removed the rash from large portions of my body. As a side effect, my face and skin look smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this soap! I have used this soap for a few years now. I love the smell and I love the way my skin looks and feels. I use several nubian heritage products and I love that they contain all natural ingredients. The lotions and body washes are amazing and the smell of all of their products are great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Black soap The soap smelled great but my sensitive skin wasn't a fan of this product. I was so excited to receive it but after 4 days of use my face was breaking out so bad. I quit using & my face has cleared tremendously. Remember everybody's skin is different. Only way to know for sure is to try it for yourself.

Does this product have SLS or SLES in it?  "African Black Soap Base" sounds like a catch all for "we can put anything in it we want and call it a soap base"

Asked by: Nicole
Hello Nicole, No - it does not.
