I am actually trying out shea butter right now. I will keep you posted if it rejuvenates my skin. I have very dry skin and have always had an acne problem.

  • Hi,
    I also use shea butter on my skin a lot as my mother does, and as my grandmother did before her. I’m still in my 20’s but I know my mother and grandmother still looked like they were in their 20’s until they turned 50. If you have acne prone skin, I would also suggest you use black soap to wash your face and shea butter to moisturize. Try using the more natural version of shea butter; the creams they sell out there are probably made of 30% or less shea butter, and mixed with lots of chemicals, leaving it without much of it’s natural power.

  • Hi, I have a teenage son and he’s beginning to get acne would the black soap and shea butter help his skin clear up.

  • The black soap is really great and i am a teenager who use it, this really clears your face up.

  • The shea butter is absolutely fabulous for hair and skin. I’ve used it for years on myself and my children as a moisturizer, treatment for eczema, sunburn, and as a hair conditioner. Also, I used the black soap on my son when he was younger in conjunction with Shea to treat his eczema. It worked when prescription topical creams didn’t.
