Do LATHER's Olive Oil Soaps last longer than commercial soaps?

Yes, if LATHER soaps properly care for they will last longer than commercial soaps. Proper care includes allowing soaps to dry out between uses and keeping them out of direct water when not in use.

Why are LATHER's Olive Oil Soaps better for your skin?

Olive oil is very moisturizing to the skin. It is rarely used in soaps anymore because of its high cost. LATHER soaps are specially formulated to better match skin's natural pH and maintain a healthy balance.

LATHER searches the world for the finest natural ingredients. Our products contain rare ingredients like yuzu from Japan, shea butter from West Africa, bamboo from India, and monoi and kukui nut oils from Hawaii.

Do LATHER products contain preservatives?

Preservatives are a necessary part of grooming products. Without preservatives, creams and gels would become a breeding ground for microbes. Preservatives are used simply to prevent the growth of or destroy microorganisms that would otherwise damage our products and compromise their safety. We use a combination of natural and synthetic preservatives that are proven to destroy harmful bacteria, yet are gentle to the skin.

All LATHER products DO NOT contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, synthetic color or mineral oils.

Why should I exfoliate my skin?

Exfoliating is an important part of a skin care regimen. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from the skin's surface and keeps skin looking healthy and smooth. LATHER's Forbidden Rice Body Scrub, Cranberry Sugar Rub, Almond Creme Body Buff or Bamboo Lemongrass Foaming Body Scrub are recommended for the body. For the face, we recommend Bamboo Silk Foaming Face Scrub, Sweet Almond Exfoliating Crème, Deep Clean Pre-Shave Scrub or our Facial Polishing Powder with any LATHER face wash. Consult our skincare guide for product advice on your particular skin type.
