Radioactive Soap (ca. 2000)

When I first saw this, I thought it was a block of cheese with the radiation warning symbol in it! I was wrong, its a bar of soap. And a good thing too! Soap keeps much better in a display case than cheese.

It was produced by the Earth to Old City company, but is no longer available. A shame.

The card that is attached to the bag states: "Handmade vegetable glycerin soap. Cloves, thyme, and eucalyptus and notes of fresh muguet and jasmine combine with fine pumice to provide gentle exfoliation."

I must admit that it was a little misleading of me to call this soap "radioactive."  It is radioactive though, just no more so than any other type of soap.
