I call this soap "Glass Soap" because it reminds me of stained glass. This soap is very moisturizing, hence the glycerin. The lather is silky and it makes you feel squeaky clean! It is very good to shave with and gives a nice close shave. Indulge yourself with your favorite Essential (EO) or Fragrance (FO)Oil! There are scents to please everyone! *It is important to keep this soap dry between use and I recommend keeping it in a soap box out of the air.
