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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you! My skin is soothed and clear! I can’t comment on the old “formula” or ingredients, I have used this formula and packaging. I love it! And, honestly, I’ve always hated soap and the texture, I am more of a gel cleanser gal. I randomly picked this up because I had some Perioral Dermatitis flaring, my skin was red, bumpy, and irritated. I noted the ingredients and soothing and clarifying properties in this soap and decided to purchase. After one use, my skin was less inflamed! I like this and will continue to use it. I like that it has aloe, oats and tea tree, which other African black soaps do not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same formula!! I have been using this soap for years. It was awesome. My skin felt clean, moisturized soft. I had nothing but great things to say about it. I noticed right away that with the box change the soap changed. It is now very harsh on my skin, dries and tightens. The fragrance is also different. I use to be able to use this on my babies. Now I wouldn't dare. The ingredients listed are different than those listed on the old box. What happened? Sad to see it go

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My daughter is 12. She has had the worst breakouts I have seen. Deep, sore pimples! I spent over $300 buying her a name brand product for acne; she doesn't use! Too many steps for a 12 year old I guess! My sister in law gave me this African Black Soap to try; as it was helping her sons breakouts. My daughter put it in her shower to use on her face while she's showering. Her face is pimple free after 2 weeks of use! My other daughter is now envious and has started using it to clear her face as well. Now I have to find a local place to purchase or order online and stock up! We have a WINNER!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why deceive your loyal consumers? I was reading through reviews and saw a rep for NH (Taylor) reply to a customer that the ingredients did not change, only their origin names. Hmmm that's interesting. I still have my old black soap box, so I compared it with the ingredients on the new box by looking up what the new names means in terms of the origin name from the old box. Final result? NOT THE SAME PRODUCT. I'm so saddened by this, I loved the black soap line and now it's just useless. WHY?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I like the old bar better! Changed ingredients I am so confused on why they change the ingredients to this bar of soap. The black box worked so well on my skin. Since the box changed I notice that my skin started to dry out. Before, this was the only box of black soap that I found that didn't dry my face out until now I notice that not only did the box change but the ingredients change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed Reviews I'm giving this 5 stars. I've used this soap for my skin for about 5-6 years. I've tried using pure black soap and my skin would always breakout. When I tried this soap, it didn't happen. I'm 44 and I can count on one hand ( up until recently) how many pimples I've had. I cracked open a new bar two weeks ago and lawd!! I had pimples of all sizes ready to run free on my skin. Perhaps the formula changed? I'm sad because I have to go back to the drawing board to find a new soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my skin! I bought this at Target and used it immediately after getting home, I was so excited. I have combination, acne prone skin. I always have a couple pimples on my face and I always have red bumps all over my chest. I usually can't use any soap on my face or chest or it will break out, but I've used his is on my face and chest multiple times now and my skin is SO CLEAR. I'm not sure if this is meant to tone your skin aswell, but it definitely removes excess redness from my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soap & gentle with a great scent! I've used this soap for a few days now, I was so excited to recieve it complimentary from Influenster that I had to use it as soon as it came in. It's soft & gentle, but very cleansing. I assumed it would be rough but that's not at all the case. I have some acne so I plan on using it even more, so far it's been a really great soap for my face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin has NEVER been so clean! I LOVE this bar soap, my husband and I use it daily on our skin and faces. It HAS made a NOTICEABLE difference, my acne has cleared up and become way more manageable and I'm having less breakouts and my tone has evened out. We'll never use another soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Beat I love this soap. I have very oily skin. I would get acne even as an adult. But once I started using this bar of soap my face cleared up and my skin wasn't as oily. This is the only kind this works for me. I will only use this soap from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soap in the world I'm a 45 year old male who has somewhat oily skin and I work outside daily. This soap clears my skin up and makes it so soft that nothing sticks to me. I now have my teenage boys using it and cleared their acne up like no body's business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! This soap is gentle, yet it leaves my face feeling clean. It doesn’t leave a film or residue like other bar soaps. You can’t beat the price either. I use it in the morning but I think it’d be great for the evening as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh scent. Good cleanser. I love this African Black soap. It deep cleans my face leaving it feeling fresh and with such a pleasing scent. It's a large soap bar and should last quite a while. Not much is needed to work up a nice lather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands-down excellent soap for body and face Though my best soap from Nubian Heritage is the Lemongrass Green Tea soap, my second best soap is the African Black soap. It is the best facial soap I've ever used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Drying I have oily skin burned my eyes. Way cheaper than Shea Moisture... I had to really moisturize burned and itching on my chin can't wash my face with it

Is there a new version of this soap that has replaced this one? If it is the new one has green &amp; red dye &amp; other junk in it. I'm extremely upset if this is true bc I loved this soap &amp; I don't want to be paying $5 for a bar of soap that has junk in it.&nbsp;

Asked by: Chantal
Thank you so much for the response from WF workers. I've seen the difference in the quality and packaging. There are sites that sell the old formula

I see in your bar soaps many ingredient derivatives originating from palm oil, if not palm oil itself. Could you please inform us where you get this palm oil? Your products say ethically and sustainable, please assure your source of palm oil. thank you

Asked by: Matthew
Hi Matthew, The Palm Oil used in our soaps are sourced from a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil - trade group committed to sustainability in the supply chain of palm oil. No Orangutans or Orangutan habitats are harmed by our use of palm oil. Palm oil is also produced in West Africa where there are no Orangutan habitats.

Did your packaging on the black soap change

Asked by: Daph
Hi Daph, Thank you for reaching out to us. We&rsquo;re committed to celebrating the different cultures of our global community&mdash;the healers whose remedies inspire our recipes, the places where we find our ingredients, and the people who love our collections. Our new packaging pays homage to the diversity of healing traditions and cultures that are represented in the Nubian Heritage family. What has changed is our label&hellip; not the performance or benefit of the products themselves. We are in the process of updating our labels to be INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) compliant which changes the ingredient list to items that may sound scary. In order to be considered for third party certifications and programs, for example being able to label our soaps Rainforest Alliance certified or RSPO certified, we have to comply with INCI. A byproduct of this change is the elimination of the origin and common names of our ingredients. A few examples, where we used to be able to label Tea Tree Oil as Tea Tree oil, we now list Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil. In the case of Sweet Birch Oil, INCI compliance requires Sweet Birch Oil be listed as Methyl Salicylate.
