    Java Lather Soap by RPN


    Nutraplanet was kind enough to send me a bar of the scar reducing soap to test out, been using it since Friday.

    Gonna be using this thread as a log of sorts.

    Initial Impressions:

    Soap smells really good
    Exfoliation is the best or any soap I've ever used, it isn't to harsh or soft, its just right.
    Skin is noticeably softer, even after the first use, but it doesn't feel oily like I expected.

    Its too soon to report on scar reduction.


    I have a pic but nowhere to upload them, can anyone upload them for me? Its a crazy scar on my leg, the perfect type to test this on.

    Mind telling the story behind that one?
    The combination of that tattoo and scar is just too interesting for me to ignore my curiosity.

    Especially with the words "Never Again" on the knife. One of those must tell, stories.

    That definitely warrants a knife tattoo with the words "never again."

    Still using it, although I have stopped using it on my whole body, because it doesn't last that long if I do it that way. I am only using it on the stretch marks on my shoulder/armpit, and the scar on my leg. The leg scar hasn't faded much, but it is no longer crusty, and it does feel softer and less tight. Good in my book! My stretch marks on my shoulders/armpits have gotten tighter also, and seem to have stopped getting that spreading look that they get after a hard workout or two. Keeping them in check really well

    I probably have about a weeks worth of washes if I use it this way. Thats my only complaint, the bar doesn't last long enough

    I completely agree, the soap is a great at exfoliation, smells great and skin is soft, but the bar goes by way too fast. Mine has maybe a week left and I got it less than two weeks ago. I would like to use it on my entire body for the exfoliation and skin softness it gives, but just can't do it since the soap runs out too fast.

    Good to know, if the bars get bigger I will definitely start using this regularly. It is a solid product and some of my stretch marks are starting to get silvery on parts of it. Other than that I love the smell and exfoliation on it.

    Lol mine didn't even last a week at twice ed. I just orderd 2 more bars today. I do love the soap. To be fair I like the exfolating and was grinding the soap on my skin like sand paper. It seemed to clear up the black heads I had on my nose in no time at all.

    OK..this thread has taken a turn towards nasty.

    Should we make the bars more slippery so you can have an excuse for dropping them?

    Naa, I have no aspiration to perform a scene straight out of American History X. Besides with the exfoliating factor, the slipperyness would take away some of the coolness about the soap.

    Let's just say that the average user of the soap is from this particular type of demographic(strength trainers, bodybuilders, fitness enthusiast), gaurantee your catering to a slightly larger(physically) crowd as the customer base. More surface area + sweaty post wo showers + bigger soap = HAPPY.

    Actually, I think the plate shaped soap is a FANTASTIC idea. I think I will check out some plastic's molding places to see how much a mold would cost.

    and FYI...the original bars were around 3 ounces each. Current bars, using the bar molds, are around 4 ounces each. We are going to keep this bigger size (25% larger than the first runs) and move to a more production friendly shape.

    Always the leader in ingenuity... and actually after thinking about it, yeah plate shaped soap would be kind of cool. Heck if you wanted to you could make some soap-on-a-rope out of it.

    Looking forward to the new bars.

    I already have a workout routine while taking a shower. But it would be nice to have other options rather than just... Mon: Forearms Tues: Forearms Wed: Forearms Thurs: Forearms Friday: Forearms Sat: Rest Sun: Forearms


    On a serious note...My whole body is a net of stretch marks (literally). Especially my stomach, obliques, biceps, inner thighs. I've already ordered the soap and I'm just waiting for delivery. I can't wait to use it!

    Have you considered a split routine? It requires more effort, but you might find the change refreshing.

    Perhaps something like...Monday a.m. - right forearm, Monday p.m. Left forearm, etc.?

    I also don't see any wrist or pinkie work in there.

    Already alternating in between sets. And I am staying away from "failure" sets.

    I have not yet incorporated wrist or pinkie because I always thought that was cheating. But isolating these targeted areas may prolong my endurance. So I will definitely consider it.
