Fair Trade Shea Butter
Dr. Woods proudly supports women's cooperatives in Africa that process the plantains and harvest the shea nuts used in this formula. Indulge with good intentions. Shea Butter is one of Nature’s most effective and versatile Health & Beauty resources, and is used across all Dr. Woods Castile and Black Soaps. Sustainably harvested from the nut of the Karite Shea Tree, indigenous to Ghana, their Shea Butter is a bountiful source of Vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids to soothe and balance your skin. They use Shea Butter in its purest form – Raw and Organic – in order to retain its highest level of therapeutic and healing properties.
Liquid Black Soaps
Dr. Woods is a pioneer in offering this unique, highly effective, yet gentle natural cleanser to the American market. Raw black soap, an amazing, ancient vegetable soap, is made from tropical plantain skins, a renewable, sustainable natural resource. It is still produced in the traditional way – in small batches made by local, women-owned family co-ops in villages throughout Africa. These non-detergent Black Soaps are naturally rich in iron, Vitamins A and E, anti-oxidants, and skin-regenerating compounds that are essential for promoting healthy, glowing, youthful skin. Thanks to the natural enzymes from the plantain skins, all of Dr. Woods' Black Soaps have a gentle, yet highly effective exfoliating action that is safe for daily use on all skin types, from dry to oily, problem skin to clear, young to aging complexions..

The Dr. Woods Story
For Their Family… and Yours
Dr. Woods is, first, last and always, a story of family and enduring relationships. First conceived by Van Woods, son of Sylvia Woods, founder of the famed Sylvia’s Restaurant in New York City, and long-time friend and business partner, Gary Greenhouse, Dr. Woods is rooted in a lifetime commitment to family, community and doing what’s right.
Starting with their Black Soap, a unique natural cleanser, Dr. Woods’ vision was to produce high quality skin care products sourced worldwide but made right here in the United States. Products made by a small company that personally cares about what they offer to their customers. Natural products that are of the highest quality at a price nearly anyone can afford. Products that they use every day in their own family, and are proud to share with yours.
Today, the product family, like their own family, has grown like the leaves and branches of the tree they use to symbolize their promise to their family and yours. A promise to provide safe, natural, cruelty-free products that are good for you and the environment. A promise to use ingredients that support the families of small farmers and producers around the world. A promise to make natural products that just plain work, at a price your family can afford. A promise to share only those products with your family that they know are good for their family, too. Products that the Dr. Woods family loves and uses every day – on their kids, and their own skin, hair, and homes. Welcome to the family.
While they work hard to ensure that the company’s daily activities reflect their commitment to responsible and caring business practices in everything they do, they believe that it is their duty and privilege to share their success with others who can use a little help and support. Dr. Woods supports a number of family and education focused organizations that are dedicated to giving back to their communities and young people in need. While they often support many smaller organizations, they offer continued support to several organizations including:
The Double H Ranch
This amazing organization, located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains of upstate NY, offers camp getaways for young people living with chronic or life-threatening diseases, completely free of charge. Founded by Paul Newman and Charles R. Wood, Double H provides specialized programs and year-round support for children and families dealing with the realities of living with life-threatening illness. Whether an away-from-home summer camp experience or skiing and other snow sports in the winter months, Double H offers the chance for these kids and their families to set aside the daily challenges of their disease and simply have fun. Dr. Woods is proud to support the magic that is Double H Ranch.
The Sylvia and Herbert Woods Scholarship Fund
Dr. Woods believes education is one of the keys to lifelong success. Unfortunately, many young people in inner-city environments simply do not have access to the types of higher education opportunities that can make a major difference in their lives. The Sylvia and Herbert Woods Foundation has made the dream of college a reality for disadvantaged youth from Harlem and other inner-city areas for more than a decade. Dr. Woods is proud to be a supporter of this fund and its mission.
