Quite a while back I had the opportunity to try out the Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap. Now, I’m typically not a bar soap fan, so this bar hung out in my ‘to try’ pile for months!
The Website Claims
Instead of animal tallow (sodium tallowate), common to most soaps, we feature a pure vegetable base of palm and coconut oils. Our Seaweed grains’ scrub action, which helps remove hidden impurities, has been a family favorite in shower or bath for many years. In Spain, Seaweed Soap is even used as part of one’s slimming or anti-cellulite routine. It stimulates circulation and helps discharge toxins. It’s a soap both men and women will love. Benefits: 100% vegetable base; added scrub action – great for use in an anti-cellulite program; no animal fats!
Soap, water, sorbitan oleate, Atlantic and/or Pacific seaweed grains, glycerin, walnut shell powder, Atlantic and/or Pacific seaweeds, microscopic blue-green algae, sodium chloride, trisodium hedta, fragrance, iron oxides, talc.

Does it live up to its claims?
Well, I can’t say that it helps with cellulite, because I can’t really tell that it helped on my legs. Aside from that, it’s actually great on my skin. It’s moisturizing, non-irritating and long lasting. I also love the little nubbies in it that scrub against your skin. I would not use this on my face, but that’s because my skin is so sensitive. I just used it on my body.
Would I recommend?
Yes. It’s hard to beat a cruelty-free, all vegetable oil soap. It’s moisturizing and not drying. It doesn’t leave an icky residue on my skin. It doesn’t irritate my skin. Also, it’s reasonably priced.
