It’s an effective cleanser that will not be too drying to your skin. I use activated bamboo charcoal which is much less abrasive than a pumice soap.
I personally love the charcoal soaps, and my boyfriend uses it after working on his truck. It cleans grease wonderfully without being as evil as lava soap. He’s thrown “motorcycle chain filth and Truck filth” at it and says that “it took it off on the first pass, and wasn’t as abrasive as most of the other stuff”
I was splitting wood, and got pine sap all over my hands. It took two passes and the sap was completely gone.
This is a rectangular bar roughly 4-5oz in weight. The bar produces very tiny, dense bubbles. so tiny that it seems like you’re just applying some weird, grey lotion to your hands, but I promise you they are tiny bubbles. Wet the bar thoroughly for best results.
We always recommend that you use a draining soap dish with your handmade soaps so that the bar has a chance to dry and harden between uses.
