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?

The only reason people might buy more than one bar is because of the peppermint oils. Have you ever used peppermint oil soap in the shower? It's soooo tingly! But the caffeine? Weird

I'm not really convinced caffeine can be absorbed through the skin, but oh well. Some studies, or so i've heard, have suggested that it actually would be helpful to have a small dose (like 200 mg) of caffeine a day. Not something I've researched thouroughly though.

I like the ritual of making the espresso and heating the milk and sitting a the table to drink it up. No soap could replace that.
