Nubian Heritage Bar Soap Raw Shea Butter -- 5 oz
Overpowering scent -- "natural fragrance" added?
I have a difficult time believing this soap doesn't have added fragrance in addition to any essential oils. The smell is just so strong and it remains so for many hours after a shower. None of the many other natural soaps I've used have done this.
I ordered another variety of this company's soap and the ingredients on the box note "natural fragrance and/or essential oil." Vitacost web site does not reflect this on its web site, listing only "essential oil blend." I suspect they are using added fragrance in this variety, too.
Would like to return it but it is probably not worth the money. If you like Bath & Bodyworks-style strong smells then maybe you will like it. Otherwise I would recommend a different soap.

The scent is unpleasant and way too strong,

This soap finally gets my skin clean. Regular soap never quite left my skin smelling completely fresh. I don't know if there was a build up of bacteria or if I am eating something weird, but this soap takes care of it. I have gone without traditional deodorants and anti-perspirants for three years now. They never worked for me. Using this soap, I don't even have to wear natural deodorant. It makes my skin that clean! I will be a regular customer.

Not for those with sensitive noses or allergies.

I LOVE THIS
I seriously love this soap. It makes my skin feel moisturized more than body wash and definitely more than regular soap. I also love the scent. It isn't a strong scent and won't last all day, but I still love smelling it when I shower. I highly recommend.
