Nubian Heritage Bar Soap Indian Hemp and Haitian Vetiver -- 5 oz
The ingredients that Vitacost provides is not a complete list. I chose this soap specifically for the ingredients it contained and because it also LACKED certain ingredients. Full disclosure of ingredients is something that is very important to me. I want to know exactly what I am purchasing and what is going on/into my body. I would not have bought this soap had I been able to read the box. I realize that my review is based on a blunder made by Vitacost and not a reflection of the soap itself. That said, the scent is VERY strong but not unpleasant. I am very particular about scents and this was a bit much for me. (I don't think I'll buy soap online again!) Based on the ingredients provided by VC, I assumed that the scent would be mild. Here are the ingredients listed on the box:
100% vegetable oils: palm and/or coconut oil*, vegetable glycerin, organic shea butter*, cannabis sativa seed (hemp) oil, vetiver, melia azadirachta seed (neem) oil, mineral pigment or vegetable color, natural fragrance and/or essential oil
Pretty different from the list VC gives us.

The scent is very exotic, yet light. I love it!

Yummy Indian Hemp and Haitian Veltiver Soap
A beautiful, subtle scent. Makes the bathroom smell wonderful but leaves my skin softly scented. A vegetable based soap, it cleans well and lasts in the shower. This soap is a very good buy.

The smell is awesome. I have dry skin, but this soap isn't drying at all. Lathers up like a demon. Clean formulation. Great price at Vitacost.
