The three soaps in the SANO gift set are presented in a cotton bag and weigh 50g each. The BHITRA felted soap is 90g. When the felted pebble is wet, the soap inside will lather through and the wool will gently exfoliate your skin. Beautiful and practical, the felted layer helps to keep your bathroom cleaner. As every bit of the soap is used, the felted pebble is a long lasting 100% plastic free alternative to shower gel and handwash. The felt shrinks in hot water, remaining tight around the soap bar as it is consumed. The felt covering is particularly useful for children and those who suffer from arthritis as the soap is less likely to slip from hands.
