With the pewter charm and raspberry-colored ribbon tied around the colorful box of bar soap, Mangiacotti Pomegranate is nice enough to give as a gift, leave in a guest bathroom, and even better to splurge on for yourself. The thick rectangular soap makes it a little unmanageable for me. It doesn't fit well in my hands, so it tends to be a little cumbersome when lathering on a wash cloth. I wonder if it wouldn't be a better idea for the company to make it a little bit smaller and lower the price accordingly. In spite of knowing that it's not a perfect product, I give Mangiacotti Pomegranate Shea Butter Soap a ringing endorsement. I love the soft and moisturizing lather, the yummy fragrance, quality ingredients, and fun design. I purchased mine at Bath and Body Works, but you can check out the mangiacotti.com website to purchase online or find other retailers in your area. Effectiveness Made with essential oils, shea butter, and Vitamin E, the lather is soft and cleansing, but the soap is never drying to my skin. Mangiacotti prides itself on being an earth-friendly company that never tests its products on animals, and uses plant-derived ingredients in its formulas for an effective, natural soap. Scent Pomegranate and Papaya Fragrance - If you love either of these scents, you're definitely in for a treat with this combination. The suds are fragrant, but not cheap-smelling. However, even though you get a wonderful burst of scent in the shower, the fragrance doesn't hang around for very long. I've found that if I can help retain the scent by following my shower with a lotion like Midnight Pomegranate. The soap layers with other pomegranate-scented lotions beautifully.
