THE KAMINARI BATCH
Designer: Arm Bar Soap Company
Japan was beyond our wildest dreams - a land rich in martial arts history and laden with high-caliber ingredients for cleansing and protecting the skin of the martial artist. "Kaminari" means "Thunder & Lightning" and it was a name that stuck while we were visiting farms and Jiu Jitsu academies between a drizzly Tokyo and Kyoto. Purifying Yuzu juice and detoxifying Sasanishiki rice water are blended with a potent, anti-fungal combo of Japanese bamboo charcoal, Australian Tea tree oil, Tsubaki oil (Japanese Camellia), Neem oil, and Lemon oil. Each bar is then carefully sprinkled with a premium-grade Matcha Tea Powder that we source directly from Ippudo Tea farm in Kyoto - a company that has been perfecting their craft for almost 3 centuries. Matcha Tea is naturally antibiotic and rich in Chlorophyll - a plant pigment that speeds up the wound healing process. A supreme After-training soap bar from "The Land Of The Rising Sun" wouldn't be complete without a handful of crushed Sakura (cherry blossoms) and Green Tea leaves to exfoliate any dead skin accumulated during heavy training. Arigatou Gozaimashita!
