Alright Product!

Bought this product to use as a regular body soap, as well as, a clarifying shampoo for my natural hair once per month. I've only used it as a body wash so far & I can see the results would be the same for both. The product doesn't lather well & really takes a lot to get a good clean going but it does the job & doesn't dry out the skin.

- Bob

Best soap ever!!

It smells light and leaves you minty clean. I use it as a body wash as well as a shampoo. I have natural coarse hair and it cleanses my scalp and hair very well.

- Tyra


I am IN love with this peppermint black soap! I shave with it, wash my body & face with it. It is the best!

- ShaBrica


This is a very good product for your skin. I use this for my hair and my body. I love the peppermint scent and it do not dry out my skin at all. I give thi product a five stars.


So refreshing and non drying

I have thin delicate skin and this product works wonders for me. I even use it to replace baby body wash & shampoo. It has a nice thick texture and foams nicely.

- Bianca

Much better than conventional soaps.

I have bad itchy and flaky skin from conventional soaps. But even from the first use of this the itch and flakes have reduced considerably. It has a pleasant scent and works well as shampoo and general bath soap. Will be getting more of this, although that will be a while for getting through this big bottle. Much better value than "common" liquid soap at the supermarket.

- James


I am SO happy with this product! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Wonderful scent, nice lather, works well for both body and hair and leaves my skin feeling soft. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

- Sherine

Minty hand soap!

This soap smells great, feels good, and is fun to use. What? Wash my hands with something that looks like a latte?! You betcha, I will! I put the soap in a foam pump dispenser, added 1/3 water and it works great.

Originally, I bought this when looking for a soap product not containing coconut, because I am slightly sensitive to coconut. I guess I didn't read the ingredients very well, because it contains "Lauryl Glucoside (Coconut)". That would explain why my hands still look terrible. So if you have a sensitivity to coconut, let me know what YOU use. In the meantime, I still use it because sometimes you must wash your hands with soap! Good product otherwise.


Great Stuff!

And I can use it for everything!

- Sarah


I bought this as an alternative to expensive organic shampoo. The first time I used it; I had to wash my hair twice and use a little more than I normall would with normal shampoo. After that; one wash was good. This is kind of a low sud soap; so if you're a suds kind of person - this is not for you. The sent is natural so don't expect it to smell amazing. This doesn't bother me since I use organic vinegar as my conditioner.
