Product is great. I have used the soap previously and was happy to be able to purchase more. Process was quick and easy.
Glad I found Finnstyle on the internet.

Great, substantial soap
I do not have a sauna but have used this soap exclusively (even facially) since I was in my 20s. I am now in my 70s! I am regularly told what nice skin I have. I will keep using it until I can no longer find it or when I am slated to leave the earth. Enjoy!

why not try it
I'm a self confessed soapaholic. it does make a difference what kind of soap one uses. I've tried many types and so far my favorite bar soap is anything wth shea butter froml 'occitane

I placed an order to finnstyle for some bedding and thought to include some birch soap, pine flavor was out of stock, so can't report on that. Sotythe birch. Right away, had to try it. Mmmmmguess what, it's really NICE look at that LATHER! I can tell that this soap is a real winner, so luxurious-seeming. it's my new favorite. I could not find, though, a list of ingredients for the soap What's it made from? . You can tell a lot from ingredient list such as this one i'm making up right now: sodium tallowate means saponified beef suet sodium palmate means saponified palm oil etc etc the -ate on the back of any ingredent means saponfied which means its mixed with lye and then the fat changes chemical structure and turns into soap. Putting lye in the list would scare everyone away, that's why you don't see it much on ingred lists

back to birch soap i love it. my only prob and it won't be yours is that i am undergoing chemo right now. that makes your skin very dry and sensitive after abt 3 days i felt my skin was a little raw maybe from birch oil my suggestion to mfr of this soap is to cut the birch oil way down, it can cause irritation i used to make my own soap, lots of fun so i remember the warnings about too much birch oil in products. try this soap though it is the best especially if you are young and strong.
just google birch oil for more info on its properties
Prosfabulous lather and washing quality
Conswatch out for skin irritation from birch oil in it, cut down frequency of use if this happens. might be too strong for babies and young children
