Walking into the Hakutora shop last week, I was given a bar of soap and told “try this!”
At first I thought maybe my personal hygiene was being questioned but actually my good friend Mr John Dang was just recommending a product that has been formulated with the martial artist in mind.
If you do something like Jujutsu, you’re going to get sweaty, you may even get a bit of irritation from the fabric of your gi, especially if someone has been choking you with it. And if you teaching Karate in a scout hut or community centre the chances are your feet will be filthy when you finish class.
So SAS soap is hand made with athletes in mind. It keeps your skin fresh, clean and clear without drying it out. The peppermint and tea tree oil make you feel clean and fresh and give a nice tingle. Their antiseptic properties are said to help fight common skin infections.
A really nice touch is strawberry seeds which exfoliates the skin and cuts through the muck.
Eucalyptus and rosemary oils are great for bruises and muscle pain relief.
The bar includes Jojoba oil, a natural moisturiser, prevents the skin from drying without making it oily.
