This is one product that Tammie, Shea Terra Organics' founder, will not leave the house without using. Roughly a decade ago one of her clients brought her authentic African soap from West Africa. Yes- authentic- and yes- black. She had heard of black soap throughout her childhood but was very weary about its actual effectiveness. Her client had traveled Africa extensively, collecting various skin care regimens and other indigenous African products. He claimed that African black soap got rid razor bumps, discoloration of the skin, and much more.
Tammie was reluctant to try the black paste but eventually decided to give it a try. She was astonished by its results and continues to use the soap herself daily. Dealing with aging and hormonal fluctuations, Tammie can not imagine life without African Black Soap. The feedback she has received from her clientele over the years never ceases to amaze her. From teenagers plagued with acne, to aging men and women, to people looking to get rid of chemicals in their lifestyle, products made with authentic African black soap has changed the lives of many.
But wait! What really is African black soap? There is a lot of misconception about what black soap is. This product is so effective that there are even companies racking up on millions of dollars selling fake black soap- neatly shaped, hard bars dyed black. Black soap comes in a few shades, from very black to brown. The base of the soap- ashes of plaintain and cocoa pods, determines the final color. Lighter brown versions often use less of the ashes. Tammie sources her black soap from the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria who are believed to have been the original makers of this black soap. Believed to be descendants from Egypt, the Yorubans carried their knowledge of herbal medicine westward. They developed black soap to cleanse the skin from harmful parasites, etc. Today they still cook it up in traditional manner by first creating the ash and then cooking the ash with oils such as shea butter to form the final product.
Tammie's original Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Wash & Mask has changed little since its original inception. But like with all of Tammie's products, she always looks for ways to better improve her original formulas as she discovers more effective skin care ingredients throughout Africa. Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Wash & Mask begins with authentic African black soap combined with certified organic rose hips seed oil and crushed rose hips fruit. Rose hips oil is used for its cell regenerative properties, producing skin which is healthier as cells divide. She next adds aloe ferox for its anti-aging, healing properties. Sustainably ourced from South Africa, aloe ferox is known to be the world's most active aloe. She also adds certified organic rooibos tea, high in anti-oxidants, kigellia Africana for its skin firming properties and licorice root for its ability to even skin tone. Once applied to skin, the wash breaks down the sebum which holds on dead skin and debris like glue. Removing layers of skin, the face instantly looks years younger, firmer and has a healthy pink glow.
About Shea Terra Organics
Not only do Shea Terra Organics' skin care treatments assist in preservation, they are also the backbone of economic sustainability for many hardworking families across the continent. Since early 2000, Shea Terra Organics has worked closely with cooperatives and conservation groups to introduce Africa's time-tested ingredients to the world.
Shea Terra Organics was the vision of Tammie's quest to create markets for natural products from third world countries, which would help alleviate poverty while preserving diminishing habitats. Sufferers of skin ailments across the world sought out Tammie's therapeutic grade shea butter products because they were amazingly affordable at a time when shea butter was sold at hundreds of dollars per pound.
Realizing the immense impact that a single ingredient like shea butter could have on the world, Tammie Umbel began seeking out other rare and indigenous ingredients that could enhance or compliment the benefits of shea butter. Working closely with cooperatives, scientists, conservationists and non-profits, Tammie actively seeks out ingredients little known outside of remote parts of Africa. Not only are these time-tested ingredients highly therapeutic, they also bring income and awareness to preserve natural habitats, which would otherwise be destroyed. Shea Terra Organics was thus rebranded in a quest to reveal Africa's ancient skin care therapies -- in time to preserve them before they are lost forever.
