According to Reviva Labs, "Instead of animal tallow (sodium tallowate), common to most soaps, we feature a pure vegetable base of palm and coconut oils. Our Seaweed grains' scrub action, which helps remove hidden impurities, has been a family favorite in shower or bath for many years. In Spain, Seaweed Soap is even used as part of one's slimming or anti-cellulite routine. It stimulates circulation and helps discharge toxins. It's a soap both men and women will love. Benefits: 100% vegetable base; added scrub action - great for use in an anti-cellulite program; no animal fats!" In addition to the aforementioned, they are and always have been a cruelty-free line.
Seaweed Soap is one extremely effective exfoliating soap for the body. It is pleasant to use and it smells refreshing. It is very moisturizing because of the 100% pure vegetable base of palm and coconut oils- therefore while your skin is being exfoliated it is simultaneously being moisturized. What this means is your skin feels silky smooth and moisturized rather than stripped. The scrubby bits of seaweed really mean business, and when you take a moment to lather up the bar you will be rewarded by a rich creamy soap that is simply divine. Truth be told, this unassuming and unpretentious soap has given every expensive body scrub that I have tried a run for the money-- it really is that good. What makes this even sweeter is the fact that it is very affordable. Not to state the obvious, but I would avoid using this exfoliating soap on more delicate areas of the body. I tend to use it every few days, or as needed.
