  We find our Brazilian customers. obsession with sand very interesting.
They work very hard on keeping their skin very smooth and supple,
mostly because it.s on show such a lot, and they are always begging us
for products to help them. Ro, who loves going to Brazil to see the
Lush shops, to dance in the carnival and go out all night with our dead
flashy Brazilian partners, learned about their sand thing* and asked
for sand products. Sandstone is our new sand soap. It smells fantastic
- stimulating, lemony litsea cubeba with detoxifying coriander oil .
and works brilliantly. Use the soapy side for washing your whole body
then use the sandy side for your heels and soles, elbows, knees and
even your buttocks, if they really need some serious exfoliation.
(*They sit on the beach and rub sand with suntan oil into their thighs
and buttocks to keep them really smooth.)

Lovely, nourishing, rich and soft, stacked with fresh figs and aloe
vera, the new Figs and Leaves feels more like a moisturizer than a
soap. The aloe vera and figs moisturize your skin and the tiny seeds

big block with vine leaves on top, looks like a delicious, figgy

They are all here, six pebbles, one, two, three, four, five, six. In the other bag I have also six. They are bigger, like this. After having picked them up outside, I used soap to wash them carefully, and I dry them. Then I put them into a bag like this. I think today you may like to make your own pebble bag.

Savon de Marseilles    


Big blocks of olive oil based soap have been crafted for one thousand
years in the South of France. Since 1688 French law has declared that
only soaps that are produced by following certain ancient methods, and
containing only the purest ingredients, shall bear the famous mark
“Savon de Marseille.”

It takes the Maitre de Savon (soapmaster) two weeks to make Marseille
Soap. The delicate mixture of olive and vegetable oils, alkaline ash
from sea plants and Mediterranean Sea salted water are heated for ten
days in antique cauldrons.


Cleanse your mind with the soap of concentration, and wash it with the water of meditation.
--Remez Sasson
