The humble bar of soap is experiencing a renaissance, but this one has a difference. Golda Hiba handmade soap by Studio Cue LA comes in a black or golden sculptural sphere. Both soaps are made using Aomori Hiba essential oil, known for its anitmicrobial, germicidal, insect repellent, and deodorising properties.
Cleanliness aside, I just love the perfect, tactile shape. Slopping on gloopy shower gel just ain’t the same…
Available from Studio Cue LA, Reed Clarke and Bud Flowers. (Warning: don’t blame me if you go down a discovery rabbit hole at Reed Clarke and find yourself seduced by curiosities like astronaut-approved nasal gel, ceramic eye spoons and anti-frizz hair sheets…)
