If the beach is your ideal spot for rejuvenation and detoxification, take the experience home in Herbivore Botanicals’ Sea Clay Bar Soap.

Herbivore Botanicals

Birchbox Breakdown

Sometimes the key to a quality clean is found in most unlikely ingredients. This ebony bar of soap comes infused with bamboo charcoal, which happens to work as a gentle, natural cleanser, purging skin of impurities and toxins. It lathers up a smoky gray, but don’t worry: You’ll rinse off clean and crisp as a fresh, green shoot.

How it Works

The crucial ingredient in this detoxifying bar is bamboo charcoal, which removes imperfections and cleans pores more gently and effectively than other charcoal additives. A blend of essential oils helps clarify facial impurities, while bergamot and lavender leave skin smelling garden fresh.

How to Use

Work the soap into a lather, then rub the bar over your face or body. The purifying power of bamboo means it can also serve as a clarifying facial soap.

Saponified oils of Olive, Coconut, Sustainable Palm, Activated Bamboo Charcoal, essential oil blend including Tea Tree and Bergamot.

Love it!

I love this soap. I always keep a bar in my shower and I use it 4 times a week. Makes your face feel so soft! Highly recommend it!

Not so much …
Purchased

I purchased this based on the glowing reviews and was expecting something a little more. My first comment was that this was the smallest bar of soap I have received from Birchbox. Second was that the soap really didn't produce that much lather and the scent was less than noticeable. Not a bad product, I just won't be purchasing again.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! I am going to stock up on this product! I'm trying to be extremely ingredient conscious and with limited ingredients that are organic, this product certainly fit my needs!

Now a part of my forever kit
Purchased

Though I don't see this as my daily soap, I see it as my after the pool, after the workout, after the grime or sweat days: even after the trek through the woods days I reach for my bar because the cleaning and refreshing power of it is beyond compare. It doesn't clog my pores, makes me feel clean, doesn't leave residue on my skin and I just feel CLEAN afterwards ! The first couple of times the color of my bubbles threw me off but once I got used to this being a part of it, I was hooked !

Great inexpensive bar soap for the body

I really like using this when I feel really grimey. Good neutral scent and does a great job - even safe for use on my face.

I really liked it!
Purchased

But, as with a lot of bar soaps, it didn't last that long! I never felt like I had that "bar soap" feel when I rinsed it off. if it lasted me a week or two longer, this would be 5 stars.

Nice soap
Purchased

Bought this soap for my husband and it smells SO good! He likes it and says it doesn't leave that sticky feeling that some natural soaps may leave.

A great, natural product
Purchased

I'm obsessed with finding all products possible that are natural/organic. So, I used some of my points to buy this soap for my boyfriend and I to use. We both like it, especially my boyfriend as it doesn't dry out his skin like most other soaps. There's no smell to this soap, but it leaves your skin feeling very clean and fresh!
The only downside is the gray residue it leaves behind in the shower. I'm excited to try the Sea Clay soap next!
