32 Unconventional Bar Soaps

From Festive Charcoal Soaps to Nose-Shaped Soap Bars

— February 1, 2017 — Lifestyle
These unique bar soaps are a step up from conventional cleansers that are designed to serve just one purpose. As well as helping to remove dirt and other impurities from the skin, of these soap bars take can be described as multipurpose products that also provide aromatherapy benefits and protection from environmental threats. There are even coal-shaped charcoal soaps that are meant to double as stocking stuffers for those on Santa's naughty list.

Unconventional soap bars also feature unique additions such as coffee, fruit enzymes or camel's milk as main ingredients.

There are also plenty of novelty bar soap designs to be admired, including ones that take the form of leaves, chocolate bars, gems or even noses. In the case of the 'Ring Soap' by Sebastian Bergne, shape is more than just for aesthetic purposes—it increases hygiene and prevents the personal care product from disappearing quickly.
