Caffeinated Soap: Cool or Not?

There is a new soap called, Shower Shock ($6.99/bar) that claims it could, if you let it, take the place of your morning brew.

Shower Shock (quite the name, eh?) is an all vegetable based glycerine soap which does not contain any harsh ingredients like ethanol, diethanolamine, polyethylene glycol or cocyl isethionate. So it's gentle but it's also scented with peppermint oil and infused with caffeine anhydrous. Each bar of Shower Shock contains approximately 12 servings/showers per 4 ounce bar with 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving (more than a cup of coffee). Do we have to eat it? Nope, the makers claim the caffeine is absorbed through the skin. Hum, not sure about this one. If you're still interested, then buy it from

As always I am curious, what do you guys think? Would you skip your Starbucks for this? -- Caffeinated Soap: Cool or Not?
