The Body Shop Moringa Soap: Review

I am a big fan of The Body Shop products. Since they use natural ingredients in their skin care products, I prefer to go with it. The cost is a bit high, but if you compare the quantity with it, it seems ok. I have been using The Body Shop products for a long time now but never tried the soaps. I am a shower gel girl!

So, just to give it a try, I got myself The Body Shop Moringa soap on my last visit to the store. Let me tell you, I loved the fragrance from the moment I opened the packaging. It looked tempting and refreshing. Let's read the review!

According to the Brand
Wake up your shower with fresh bursts of florally scented moringa. Work this vegetable based bar into a rich lather for skin that feels thoroughly cleansed. Moringa seed oil will leave you feeling soft and hydrated. This white flower-scented soap contains real moringa seed oil. It gives a rich lather and leaves skin cleansed and refreshed.
  • Non-drying Soap
  • Leaves skin cleansed, feeling soft & hydrated
  • Generous lather
  • Vegetable based bar
  • Seed oil from hand-picked moringa pods
  • Certified sustainable palm oil

How to Use
Lather in the bath or shower. Rinse well

I prefer to use a loofah after applying the soap. It scrubs pretty well.

The Body Shop Moringa Soap comes in a nature-friendly paper packaging. You can easily dispose it. The moment you open the packaging, you can smell the light refreshing scent of moringa.


It has a nice yellow colour with a soothing fragrance. The soap feels soft on touch, similar to the cream moisturising ones. While using as well, it feels very soft and smooth on the skin. With just a little water, it can give pretty good lather.


  • The fragrance is really amazing. I love using it mostly because of the smell. 
  • Smooth texture
  • Paraben-Free
  • Lathers pretty well
  • Cleans of skin properly removing oil and dirt
  • Contains real moringa seed oil


  • Contains Sodium palmate which can be drying
  • Price is a bit high
  • The fragrance does not stay for long
  • Not suitable for people with dry skin

Overall, it is an average soap, not at all different from the ones you can buy at your local grocery or drug store. Even the brand claims that it is made with real moringa seed oil, but I do not see any difference in my skin. I have a combination skin and it makes my skin very dry every time after taking bath. However, the fragrance is really nice but I will prefer to buy The Body Shop Moringa body lotion or body butter rather than this soap. I will not buy it again!

If you have tried this soap, share your thoughts with me in the comments below.

Lots of Love!!!
