Lightly scented with a special skin-loving blend of essential oils, these bars are absolutely packed with Activated Charcoal from Bamboo. A fantastic face and body soap, they will stain washcloths and other fabric due to the microscopic size of the charcoal particles. Any residue in sink or shower will rinse away cleanly.
Recommended use: Keep the bar as dry as possible. Wet hands or a dark washcloth, shake off excess water, and rub the bar between palms or onto the fabric. Return the bar to a dry place out of the splash zone, and apply the soap from your hands/cloth to your skin. The lather will appear very dark at first and will become white with continued friction.
These smooth vegan bars weigh 5 ounces and contain organic saponified oils of Coconut, Palm*, Canola, & Olive, essential oils, and Activated Charcoal.

The Stinky Lewis' Soap Story
Gainesville resident Ariale Lewis launched Stinky Lewis’ Soap in 2000 and began to sell to local shops and farmers markets. Milan Mixson first encountered it in 2005 at a market and was an instant fan. When Ariale announced her retirement in 2015, Milan couldn’t imagine the awesome bar soap disappearing and asked Ariale if she could apprentice with her in order to continue to supply the community with that stinkin’ good soap. Ariale agreed and Milan began learning her recipes and methods, eventually becoming Stinky Lewis’ owner and official soapmaker.
Ariale’s original premium small-batch soap recipe is still used by the small business, right there in Gainesville, Florida. They take skincare seriously and therefore work diligently to source the best quality ingredients. The base oils, which are the main ingredients of soap, are all organic and are certified sustainably sourced whenever possible.
