Benefits of R/6 Handcrafted Bar Soap
The transformation of shea butter and coconut oil by the soap-making reaction into glycerine ensures naturally strong moisturizing and softening benefits for your skin.

This soap’s extraordinary smell comes only from its ingredients: you literally breathe in the plants and flowers used to make it.
