Lo and behold, Target has developed organic bath and body products designed to address the unique skin care needs of African Americans (and other multicultural skin types)...and has sent me some. Is it because I write about Target so much? Could it be that they're thanking me for the attention? Probably not, but I'm appreciative of the products nonetheless.

My dad loves the SheaMoisture Shave System; my mom cannot get enough of the African Black Soap Facial Wash & Scrub, and my sister--who used the wash and scrub once--has proclaimed that there's a notable difference in her skin after just one use. Suspicious, but I'll take her word for it. I'm personally a fan of the Raw Shea Butter Soap...it's super concentrated--very creamy and leaves my skin feeling soft. Plus it smells delicious and did I mention that the products are all organic? The collection of Shea based proucts were unveiled this June. Get your own here! The products range in price from $1.99 to $19.99. Let me know what you think of them.

Special Thanks to Charell of UniWorld Group for the products and snazzy Target bag!

Yay! I noticed that Target seems to be upgrading their product lines. I just bought the SheaMoisture Organic Black Soap and I was amazed at Target's new organic line. They now have Avalon, Dr. Bonner's, and a lot of other organic goodies.

*sniff* My little Target is growing up. *wipes away a tear*

I found these products at some time earlier in the year and basically stockpiled my home so I wouldn't have to keep coming back. The products left my son's skin fairly soft which is, for the most part, a miracle since he has pretty bad eczema. When I went back to Target to get more products, not only were they out, but the silly shuckin and jivin black folks that worked there didn't have a clue as to what I was talking about. I found one lady that had an idea as to the products I was referring to, but she didn't know what they were called (I agree w/ Chris Rock when he said that there are just some black-folks who revel in the idea of just not knowing. "I dunno" seems to be their beloved catch-phrase). Anyway, thank God that I had a little foresight and kept the wrapper of the Black Soap!! Now I know what it's called and I can order it online since it appears that not enough people out here like the idea of organic products specifically marketed toward African-Americans (either black folks were too apathetic or white folks were up in arms...who knows).
