Moisture drenching, unrefined shea nut butter and olive oil make the shea moisture bar soap an excellent choice for dry, sensitive skin and damaged, blow-fried hair. This simple, moisturizing, lather-rich shea butter soap for everyone has a creamy, natural scent all by itself. If you've never tried one of our shampoo bars, our shower shea butter bar is a great place to start.
Ingredients: saponified oils of organic babassu, organic olive, organic shea nut butter, castor bean, and rosemary oil extract. No added scent.
All of our Shampoo, Body and Facial full sized bars are 5oz in weight, with dimensions of 2.75H x 3.4W x 1D.

OR - try a HALF SIZE bar!
Remember that our 100% natural shampoo bars need soft water (read more about that HERE). Also, check out our Citric Acid Hair Rinses or our Herbal Vinegar Hair Rinse - an important step when you are using natural shampoo bars (read more about that HERE).
Other great choices for dry, textured hair include the Marshmallow and Aloe shampoo bar, Latte Brunette shampoo bar, Wheat and Honey Almond shampoo bar, Jojoba Silk Conditioning shampoo bar, and Bamboo Shampoo bar.
Are you looking for more unscented solutions? Try the Calendula Castile body bar, Cocoa Butter and Vanilla Bean face and body bar, Jojoba Silk conditioning shampoo bar, and our unscented Organic Coconut bar.
The Simply Shea is one of my favorites and has been ordered many times. I appreciate that it is unscented, especially when I am camping. Fewer insects to attract:-)
This is my favorite bar, however still only 3 stars. I really want an all-in-one bar but this falls slightly short. This is the best one I've found that doesn't give me a headache or leave my hair a complete grease ball, but I still need to use an ACV rinse to keep it from getting greasy - so not an all-in-one product. This also leaves my skin feeling sticky and not good for running a razor over for shaving my legs. Making a Simply Shea Body, Shampoo & Shave Bar would almost make this a perfect bar. Women need to shave too, so don't just make shave bars for men, please.
Nice, smelling and feel good soap. Didn't last as expected. Will be ordering again.
This is one of my favorite shampoo and body bars. I've been ordering it since 2018. The shea bar does not dry my scalp or my skin, which is a plus since dry skin can lead to eczema for me.
I chose to go with the unscented bar after trying several scented samples. I feel like my hair is clean. I also like that fact that I'm not using a plastic bottle.
I went through the entire process of training my hair, testing different shampoo bars, going back to my old shampoo, and then realizing that my old shampoo made my hair so much heavier. It took me about a month to train my hair before going at least 3 days without washing my hair. I was a true believer that my hair needed to be washed every other day with heavy use of dry shampoo in between. I stayed the course. In the beginning of using the bars, I did get that waxy feel, but I could counter it with dry shampoo between washing days. I don't know when I finally started to notice that I could cut down on my use of dry shampoo, and I was able to push my hair another day without washing. My hair is so much healthier, and I can go 4-5 days before washing it now. I use a little bit of dry shampoo in between, but it isn't a heavy amount anymore. When I was using regular liquid shampoo, I had to wash my hair every day. I didn't realize how heavy my hair felt until I took a short period of time to go back to it after using shampoo bars. I noticed such a difference, that I ordered shampoo bars again and went through the transitional phase all over again. I started with the sample bars to test which I liked. I love the Shea Bar and Marshmallow and Aloe Bar. My hair feels so smooth and has shine. After the sample bars and trying most of them (they are great for traveling), I then bought the half bar. Once I came back to the bars, I ordered two full bars. With my washing schedule, they last a pretty long time. I typically cut them in half to start. I haven't tried other companies' soaps, but I don't want to. Apple Valley has been so great, and I love their quality!
I have very fine wavy hair. I used to spend hours meticulously detangling my hair. My friend recommended the Shea shampoo bar to me. She said she’s been using it for years. Since her hair is beautiful and long I decided to try it. I have been using it for about a month and already my hair isn’t getting all tangly! Also, feels much softer and looks shinier! Really happy with it.
This is my first time using this bar, but I will definitely order more!
I have been trying to switch to all natural shampoo with no luck until I tried this bar! My hair definitely went through a detox when I first started using it. After a couple of weeks my hair returned to normal. I have very sensitive skin so I make my own body soap, but I tried this bar as body soap and I had no reaction which was great! This soap is amazing and it is going to be so convenient for traveling!
I love this bar for its moisturizing and light fragrance, plus it's a shampoo bar!
Wonderful! Only issue I had was in traveling to area with hard water that was untreated, making it difficult to rinse thoroughly, but Citric rinse helped with that. Glad to have the opportunity to cut down on plastic packaging and looking forward to more convenient packing for overseas travel. Will buy again!
I’ve yet to actually use this on my hair, but I have used it as a shaving bar on my legs. I love it! Never going back to shaving cream
I love this bar for my kids. It works as shampoo and a body bar. Makes bath time easier and faster.
Have spent over a hundred dollars on other shampoos after a recent hair surgery in search for something calming on my scalp. This shampoo bar did the trick. I also purchased the vinegar spray and I like it as well. I will be a long time customer from now on.
I absolutely love these shampoo bars!
I love this shampoo bar. I've tried so many and have loved the way my hair reacts to them but most make my head itch, unfortunately even some of your awesome bars! As soon as I washed my hair with Simply Shea though the itch calmed right down and my hair looks beautiful, shiny and soft. Thank you for such wonderful products!
I've tried nearly everything in my hair to combat the SOFTEST of water (I live on the coast). These shampoo bars are absolutely amazing- and the only shampoo that has worked for my hair. I've tried three so far- Simply shea (my favorite), Jajoba silk, and Peppermint tea tree. They all work wonderfully and are great with the vinegar rinse. I highly recommend these products. Thank you for saving my hair!
My son is four and has been using this soap for a year now. He has sensitive skin and it is wonderful to have no complaints at all about this soap. Thank you Apple Valley Natural Soap!
First of all, I couldn't believe how fast I received my order...awesome! And it was packaged so beautifully :) This "Simply Shea" shampoo bar is wonderful! I used it last night on my 3 kiddos...my 13 year old son said it made his hair so smooth, he said the girls will love it ;) My 9 year old daughter has very long hair & it made her hair so soft that we didn't even need to use detangler (made the morning routine much more pleasant) and my 21 month old daughter has curly hair & this made her curls form into perfect little, bounce ringlets! I love that it is all natural & can pronounce all the ingredients. Leaves a nice clean smell. Can't say enough about this product :)
My hair feels very soft and clean using this shampoo bar. I am very happy with it.
I have been getting compliments on my dried out, frizzy hair since using this shampoo bar. I am so glad not to have to use a chemical shampoo anymore!
I purchased this bar to use when our baby was born. I love that it is unscented (although I love scented shampoo bars for the rest of us) and it left her clean & fresh. Her head full of black hair was beautiful after it was washed!
The softness of my girls hair is so wonderful... Will def buy more!!!
Used on my granddaughters hair and it made her hair soft and more managble. She has sensitive skin and had no problems with irritation.
This soap is amazing and this is coming from a lover of shea butter. It moisturizes my body and facial skin really well. I even tested it on my hair and it cleans very well. Due to the problems I have with hard water, it does leave a slight, coated feeling on my hair, but that's something an apple cider vinegar rinse can fix!
We really like this shampoo bar for our children. I like that it doesn't have any added scent. Both my daughters hair is looking and feeling so much better using this bar.
I bough this bar because my friend told me it was very moisturizing, and my skin is very dry. I waited until I have used almost the entire bar to see if maybe it was just adjusting to the new soap, but it isn't improving. AVNS Response: This bar is not formulated to moisturize extra dry body skin. All of our shampoo bars are designed to gently cleanse hair and body without stripping skin of its natural moisture. If you have extra dry skin and are looking for a moisturizing bar, I would recommend using a body-only bar such as our Cocoa Butter and Vanilla Bean or the Lavender and Chamomile. They are superfatted to a higher degree and will help keep skin moisturized. In addition to a gentle soap just for your body, you may need to use a natural moisturizer like Jojoba oil to get your skin in healthy condition again.
this is my first bar shampoo ever and i am mot going back to bottled ones. even with my waist long heavy hairs its a well nourishing gentle shampoo
This shampoo bar leaves my hair soft and bouncy. I prefer the Bella Rose and Orange Blossom because they smell so nice, but this would make a great choice if you need unscented.
I've tried a number of the shampoo & body bars, and this one is my go-to favorite that I keep stocked up on. I have always had sensitive skin, and this bar is so gentle I can even use it on my face without irritation. It has made life so much easier to have one bar to use on my face, body, & hair instead of 3 separate products! It leaves my skin super-soft as well. :)
I really like the moisturization that the shea butter offers in this bar. Also, having no added scent is wonderful for someone who has sensitivity to perfumes & additives!
I was so thrilled to find that you offer a shampoo and body bar that has no added scent for those of us who need to avoid it. Thank you so much!
This bar and my skin work really well together. I use it on my face and have been very pleased with the results. An extra bonus is that there is no added scent for those who try to avoid scents.
This was the first bar I tried from Apple Valley Natural Soap, and it is so great it may be the only one I try! I have oily hair, and with typical products my hair is oily by the end of the day. It doesn't get oily by the end of the day with this!! Plus it leaves it full of volume. I love how easy it is to use one bar of soap for shampoo and body, it makes my shower much quicker.
This is my favorite bar that I have tried. It lasts a long time and has kept my hands from cracking all winter.
