Patchouli Blend with Red Clay
This soap combines aged dark patchouli and four different citrus essential oils to create a unique and wonderful essential oil blend, then set in a soap design that's colored with Moroccan red clay and crushed annatto seeds (which provide a very light exfoliating feel).
The song “Brick House” was released in 1977 by The Commodores. We feel this award-winning scent combination should be inducted into the Brick Hall of Fame, just as The Commodores were in 1991. "Shake it down, shake it down now!"
Brick House handmade soap: a bright and modern take on a classic scent.
The soap smells good but the first time I used it, I thought I was bleeding. Red water rinsed off of me. Now I see I have a red stain running down the tub from the soap. Yuck! I bought 2 bars and want to return the 2nd one because I sure don't want to use it!
RESPONSE FROM ABSOLUTE SOAP:
We're so sorry this happened, but want to assure people that we've sold hundreds of bars of Red House, and use it ourselves, and have never experienced this.
The soap is colored with kaolin clay, not dye, and this should not stain permanently. We've tested it repeatedly, and if we apply the clay directly to porcelain it can appear to be stained, when in fact it's just stuck - a sponge has always gotten it up.
But that's applying the clay directly - this has never been the case using the soap, nor have we seen or heard from anyone else that said it appeared they were bleeding. Our best guess is that a pocket of clay remained in the soap and when the customer used it it was all released at once, causing what she described.
If anyone else has any experience like this, or any other issues with any of our products, please let us know immediately, both so that we can make it right for you and have the information for future work.

It smells so good and leaves your skin feeling so clean. I highly recommend this soap and this company for their excellent products and service. Paula Warren on 20th May 2013
I got this soap bar as a sample with an order that I made. The sample was big enough to actually use in the shower, and I freaking LOVE patchouli! Now, this isn't the "we're all free hippies" patchouli scent you're thinking of (not sweaty with hints of smoky illegal substance). This patchouli is spicy, woody, and sweet! The citruses give it an amazing balance, and the light scrubbing action was a perfect match for this bar! I will definitely be getting this one again! Danielle on 17th Apr 2013
