This is a soap bar unlike any other. Made in France, it is a porous, pumice-like terra cotta (baked clay) impregnated with a long-lasting soap. It is gentle on the skin, but vigorously removes dirt and stains, and has a light scent. Because the soap has been centrifuged deeply into the terra cotta, it will typically last a year, even with daily use, as long as it isn't left sitting in water for long periods.
Measures 3" across.
