Dr. Woods' Shea Vision Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter Review


Dr. Woods was founded in 2003 and sells a variety of natural products for the body, including: bar soaps, liquid soaps, organic oil soaps, and shea vision facial cleansers. Their products are made only in the United States and they have a very firm belief in using only natural, effective, and sustainable ingredients that are safe for our bodies as well as for our environment.

Dr. Woods promises the following in their soaps:

All natural
No animal ingredients
No artificial colors
Not tested on animals
pH balanced
No lauryl/laureth sulfates
Paraben and phthalate free

Dr. Woods' organic oil liquid soaps are available in 8oz, 16oz, and 32oz sizes. They are gluten-free, paraben/phthalate/sulfate free, 100% natural, and certified by Oregon Tilth. They come in the following varieties:

  • Citrus Castile Soap
  • Peppermint Castile Soap
  • Unscented Baby Mild Castile Soap
  • Lavender Castile Soap
  • Tea Tree Castile Soap
  • Rose Castile Soap


Dr. Woods' bar soaps come in nine different varieties for all specific skin types and conditions.  They have:

  • Lavender Castile - relaxing and moisturizing
  • Unscented Baby Mild - hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin
  • Peppermint - refreshing and invigorating
  • Ginger Citrus - awakens, restores, and moisturizes
  • Raw Black Shea Butter - moisturizing, exfoliating, and provides elasticity
  • Red Current Clove Raw Shea Butter - exfoliates, awakens, revitalizes
  • Garden Cucumber Raw Shea Butter - antioxidant that strengthens and rejuvenates
  • Coconut Milk Raw Shea Butter - relaxes and enriches
  • Skin Lightening English Rose - helps fade skin discoloration and blemishes


Dr. Woods has two Shea Vision Facial Cleansers: Tea Tree and Daily Exfoliating. The tea tree formula is for oily/combination skin and the daily exfoliating formula is for all skin types and includes a anti-oxidant combination of black soap and Shea butter. These products help with unclogging pores and leaving your complexion healthy.

Dr. Woods also has an extensive line of liquid soaps, which fall under the category of Castile or Shea Vision. These soaps are available in 8 oz., 16 oz., or 32 oz. sizes. The Shea Vision/Castile liquid soaps each come in Peppermint, Almond, Tea Tree, Lavender and Baby Mild scents. Castile soaps are given their name because they come from Castile, Spain. They are very mild and can be used as shampoo, body wash, facial cleansers, or even a bathtub soak. They contain no animal products, so they are instead composed of a vegetable base. Castile soaps are great for environmentally conscious people, because they are natural, biodegradable, and have no harsh chemicals. They contain a great moisturizing formula rich in Vitamin E and olive oil. The Shea Vision liquid soaps are also excellent moisturizers, containing Shea butter, which is naturally comprised of Vitamins A and E. These antioxidants are great for skin repair, reversing dryness, and increasing elasticity.

Dr. Woods sent me their 8 oz. Shea Vision Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter to review. I was excited because the combination of black soap and Shea butter seems very promising as an effective and soothing cleanser. Black soap has natural exfoliating qualities, to remove dead skin and also to help prevent blemishes and wrinkles. I found it interesting that black soap is manufactured from the drying and roasting of the skin of a plantain. It is a rich source of Vitamins A and E. As stated above, Shea Butter has its own moisturizing properties, also containing Vitamins A and E. My doctors told me that my skin is lacking elasticity, so this aspect of the soap really appealed to me. Also, being summer, I could use the moisture to repair dry skin and to reverse some summer/stress blemishes! The Shea butter found in Dr. Woods' soap comes from shea nuts, which are harvested only once a year from the Mangifolia tree in the African Savannah. The shea nuts are boiled to produce the Shea butter.

Shea Vision Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter has the following ingredients: Purified water, Saponified Coconut, Hemp & Olive Oils (with retained Glycerin), Black Soap Concentrate, Organic Shea Butter, Natural Fragrance Oil blend, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Panthenol, Rosemary Extract, Natural Caramel

This particular soap has a number of great uses. I was unaware that with one part soap, 4 parts water, this product can be used as a natural cleanser for your kitchen or your bathroom. It is also useful as a daily facial cleanser (just massage in to your face with warm water), hair conditioner, as a body wash (with loofah, washcloth, or hands), or even as a relaxing bath soak (place one or two capfuls in running water).

I really liked the fact that this soap contains no harsh chemicals. My skin is very sensitive, so the combination of natural skin moisturizers was nice. The soap has a thick formula and lathers up readily. It smells like a pleasant combination of plants and herbs; I felt like I smelled clean and fresh after I got out of the shower. I used the soap as a body wash first and then as a facial cleanser. I really think it helped with the blemishes on my chin and with removing dead skin. My skin was soft and smooth after I washed it, before I put on my makeup. I definitely recommend this soap for all environmentally conscious people!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I've actually used this brand before, and I like it because I have sensitive skin too. I love to try all-natural products and they have such a great product line - so many choices!

  2. I love all natural products! Going to look into this one, thanks for a great review!

  3. What an awesome post. I had not heard of these, yet I am always looking for natural products since my girls are plagued by eczema!

  4. I have been wanting to try this brands products for a long time now! I need to go out and get me some!

  5. @shauna, This soap actually hurts my eczema, which I found to be strange. But my eczema is on my hands so maybe that's why, since I'm using my hands to apply the soap.
    Overall, I really like this soap. The only problem that I'm having is I started using it at the same time that I started using a combination of shea butter/jojoba oil/rosehip seed oil for my combination skin face. I think THAT is breaking me out in whiteheads on my forehead and chin, unfortunately. So my question is, what moisturizer do you use after the black soap? I'm looking for something light and natural that won't clog my pores. Any suggestions would be wonderful!

    1. This soap leaves your skin so soft you really don't need a moisturizer. But, if you still want something extra on your face I suggest sweet almond oil. It is so soft and soothing. I use it every night before bed and every morning after my shower just because I love the silkiness of it. I also use a drop of pure vitamin e oil with it.
