I was drawn by the simple packaging at first. I was intrigued by the ingredients listed and also the fact that it is hand made in Nepal. I tried it on my face and hair and I am happy to say that it's a wonderful soap. It has this soft and silky consistency after being mixed with water. I even washed my hair with it. I thought it would make my hair dry but it didn't . I am very satisfied with it and will also recommend it to others.
