You know the old adage: you Catch More Flies with honey than with vinegar! In other words: bee sweet, it will get you farther than being sour! This lovely wine soap smells just like pure honey; my own blend of orange blossom honey & wildflower honey fragrances. My soaps will thoroughly clean hands, face, & body, and I cannot claim more than that. However, look into the benefits of honey and wine for the skin, as both are ingredients in this gorgeous soap! This soap is not vegan (most of mine are).
