This is the only soap my husband will use to wash his body and face. It was recommended to him as a teenager by his dermatologist to help clear up back and chest acne. 18 years later he's still using it! The smell is a little old fashioned, but it gives him the squeaky clean feeling he loves, so I keep buying it. I wouldn't recommend it for those with dry or sensitive skin, but if you have stubborn body acne, give it a try!

Some old-time "tried and true" products just do not live up to their repuations....

Looked all over for this stuff, remembering (incorrectly) that it had an effective pumice base for scrubbing off thick oils....wish I had just purchased Goop or another (relatively cheaper) lotion-type pumice product from my local auto parts store, each of which is more effective and doesn't have the awful, artificial smell of this sickeningly-overperfumed soap.

Vegetarians and health-conscious buyers beware, too - this is an old-fashioned commercial TALLOW (lard)-based soap, and as such leaves a thick residue of animal product on your skin. If that is "moisturizing," you can keep it.

This is going in the trash - lotion-based hand cleansers with Italian/American pumice are MUCH more effective and don't smell up my garage/house like Lava does. Don't waste your money on this!

      Lava soap is and oldie, but a goody product. For all the greasy car repairs or grimy jobs around the house, you just can't beat LAVA for it's ability to cut through the dirt, grease and grime. It's a Great Product.

            When my husband comes in with dirt and grime all over, he just washes with Lava soap, and usually just once not twice, and it is all off his hands.

                  I use this soap after I apply bronzers and self tanners to prevent staining on my hands. It's so pleasant to use and is very moisturizing. It's an excellent exfoliant, making hands very soft.

                    Now it's hard to find.

                        Whenever my husband and I either work in the yard or clean up the car - we always reach for the Lava soap for it not only lathers well but it cleans our gritty hand just wonderful. We have been using Lava soap for over 20 years or more.
