Aviela Shea Butter Black Soap

Aviela Shea Butter Black Soap*, £14/250ml

This natural, multi-purpose cleanser is crafted from shea butter from Ghana, housed in a recyclable plastic pump dispenser. It has a very mild, soapy-like scent and as it is quite thick, I think this product would dispense better through a tube.
This soap can be used to wash your face, body and hair. It is mild enough to use on babies and includes ingredients such as palm kernel oil, coconut oil and cocoa pod ash.

I haven't yet tried this on my hair, but I will give it a go! I enjoy using this as a face wash and body wash. It leaves skin feeling well-cleansed and soft. I do find that if you have any cuts or irritated skin, this does sting a little, but otherwise it works well with my sensitive skin. I'm not sure about the formula, as it doesn't spread evenly very well, plus it's lacking in lather a little.

(Elaeis Guineensis (Palm Kernel Oil), Butyrospermum, Parkii (Raw Shea Butter), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Cocoa Pod Ash, Herbal extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Extract, Azadirachtin indica (Neem) Oil.)

  1. This seems like such an unusual product, but I can see why you might be a little undecided about it. I really like multi-task products as they offer value for money, although I agree it might have been more practical in different packaging. The scent and idea of soft skin after use does sound lovely! :-) xx
