This olive oil-based soap-on-a-rope won’t slip out of your hand as you lather up in the shower. Lightly scented with fragrant, citrusy Bergamot, the soap also has added wheat protein to strengthen and add shine to your hair.

Created by a 170-year old German soap manufacturer in its 5th generation of family ownership, the soap contains only naturally occurring ingredients. The formula is rolled and pressed five times for a more concentrated, potent product.

Use & Care

Slip the rope around your wrist, place the soap in your palm and begin lathering up body and hair. The cotton rope looped around your hand prevents the wet, slippery bar from falling while in the shower or bath. Hang the soap up by its rope when not in use so that it dries faster and lasts longer. 

Production & Design

In 1840, a German journeyman traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia, to learn the art of soap making. He returned to his home country a master soap boiler and opened a workshop in Heidelberg. The company traditions he started continue today in the hands of the fifth generation of his family. 

The olive oil-based soap formula has remained essentially the same since the company’s inception in the 19th-century: vegetable oils are boiled with alkali (water soluble salts) to create a soap base. Skin soothing and nourishing ingredients, natural scents and essential oils are then added. The mixture is put through a pelleting machine, which rolls and presses the soap into a homogenous solid mass. The industry standard is to roll the soap formula three times, but this company has a five-rolling process to create a more compressed, concentrated product. Finally, the solid mass is put through molds either by hand or with presses that are over 100 years old.
