This lovely soap is a beautiful sculpture for your home, fantastic for your skin, and a meaningful gift which gives to many. As seen in gift guides including People Magazine, Treehugger, GOOD, & a lovely blogpost by Kevin Roberts, the CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide "Taking a Bird in Hand"

Each black, bird shaped soap contains a white, ceramic bird, handmade from Louisiana Clay, which remains as a keepsake once the outer soap has washed away.
Through the daily act of washing, you will eventually free the clean, white, ceramic birds inside - potent symbols of restoration and recovery. The soap is shaped to be cradled in your hand and is a powerful representation of all creatures affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster.
The soaps are made with natural, locally sourced ingredients: biodiesel glycerin, fair trade olive oil, aloe, activated black charcoal, and a light cypress scent - reminiscent of Louisianan bayous. They are made by Emily Manger Davis of Sweet Olive Soaps, a third generation soapmaker from New Orleans.
To prolong the life of handmade soap please keep in a soap dish and allow to dry between uses. Store in a cool and dry place until ready for use.
More details about the soaps! They are all natural [they contain no shea butter or animal products - I've received many thank you's from that for those that are allergic] and are really wonderful for your skin. The lovely soap is great for all skin types and is not drying for daily use. The heavenly Rigaud Cypress scent has a rich history which began in Paris in 1850 and is delightful for both women and men.
