This is the finest looking soap bar I’ve seen in a long time. I love the concept too. Designed by Ryohei Yoshiyuki for inframince – a beauty and cosmetics company – the cold processed soap, made from gentle, all-natural ingredients, is hand-cut to create a thin slice intended to be exhausted in a single day.

The newely launched One Awa (360 yen for one, 1500 yen for 5) is intentionally designed to crumble in your hand so you can use a portion of it to wash up in the morning, and then use the rest when you take a shower at night, or in accordance with whatever your daily hygiene practices happen to be.
