Much better than a shower gel and less expensive. A shower gel contains little-to-no quality oils in order to moisturize the skin. Our gourmet and food grade cleansing bars are highly-emollient, and thus very moisturizing to the skin. Smells good enough to eat for all the chocolate lovers in the world! And now we know there is good reason why we love the stuff so well...all those anti-oxidants and magnesium are not only good to eat but our skin loves them too! This bar has a beautiful green color from the spirulina to nourish your skin, and is super-fatted with cocoa butter for that extra bit of indulgence. Made with the finest Belgium chocolate, raw cacao nibs, spirulina, fresh peppermint and essential oil, first pressed virgin olive oil, sunflower oil and living spring water.
