Whether we’re aging whiskey or building awesome dude furniture, we men appreciate some solid oak. That’s why we’ve scented this woodsy gem with oak moss, to remind you that you need some suds that are as solid and earthy as you are. To balance out the rustic musk, we’ve subtly blended in shea butter and sea salt, creating a bar as potent and smooth as your favorite bourbon.
Size : 5 oz Bar
Scent Strength : Medium
All soap starts as a basic mixture of oils and lye solution. The mix results in soap + glycerin. The big difference is what happens from here.
In our handmade soap, the glycerin is retained in the bar, and combines with coconut, and olive oils to nourish your skin.
Cold process soap has no need to add harsh chemicals or preservatives. The result? You’ll be skin-safe and feeling smooth.
Driven by profits, commercial soap producers remove the vegetable glycerin and sell it at a higher markup in other products.
To create more lather without the glycerin, harsh chemicals are added such as SLS (causes skin irritation) and parabens (linked to cancer).
This is a good bar of soap that lathers well, moisturizes well, and smells pleasant. It's not a strong smell and doesn't linger beyond the shower.
I spend a lot of time in the woods; hiking, camping, hunting and scouting. Most of the time I try to "de-scent" so as not to scare off my querry. This soap smells so natural and so much like the woods near where I live and play, I can start my trip feeling clean. I work in the foodservice industry and in a fast paced kitchen it is hard to stay smelling clean. At the end of being hot and sweaty and being splashed with hot grease and dirty dishwater I still smell manly and clean. Many of my female co-workers have commented on how good it smells. Gold Moss has it going on, and Dr. Squatch is freekin' awesome! It's about time someone takes the "art of manliness" seriously. I smell great and not like some teenage kid who smells like a flower bed. This is some great stuff. Gold Moss is definitely a keeper.
I couldn't use this scent because it reminds me of a bad smelling, old man cologne.
Just imagine yourself laying down in a forest and you don't want to get up because it smells nice. Then this tree moss starts growing on your body but you let it stay because its scent is superb. This is basically what gold moss scrub is like.
The soap smells and feels great and I appreciate that it's made in the United States, but it didn't last long at all. One bar made it four (4!) uses before splitting in half and essentially crumbling from there, making it unusable. I assume this is due to the square shape, but I'm not sure. I have two more bars, I guess I'll see if they're any different. If not for the structural deficiencies, I'd give the soap 5 stars and recommend it.
