Hand held bar soap has had a frowned upon image for some time. It's messy, gunky and causes us to spend more time cleaning the remnants off our shower shelf then paying attention to any difference it's creating in our skin. For many people the idea of a bar soap sitting out in the open air immediately makes us think it's being contaminated and creating a haven for bacteria. It's not a sexy skincare product to begin with but over the years bar soap's bad wrap has gotten better. Especially now as this year marks the 60th anniversary of Erno Laszlo's Deep Sea Mud Cleansing Bar. This momentous occasion calls for a write up in the New York Times since it's stylish debut began at Saks in 1952!
The truth is nowadays choosing soap over a foaming wash or gel isn't going to do your skin any harm, only good. We've been convinced by marketers that it can strip necessary oils and moisture from our skin by affecting the pH level but that is now a thing of the past based on new formulations. One of our favorites is Erno Laszlo's Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar because it serves a dual function by exfoliating as well as cleansing. Therapeutic deep sea mud gently removes impurities, detoxifies and improves circulation while also hydrating and restoring radiance! This is one bar soap you want in your shower or bathroom sink!
