It was bound to happen soon or later! Whether your chosen delivery device is a White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks or the ever-popular liter of Mountain Dew, nothing beats the gentle jolt into full wakefulness provided by the humble C8H10N4O2 molecule (caffeine). Apparently there are many who simply can’t wait until they shower, dress, and drive to their local coffee shop or 7-11. And someone responded to that lack of patience.
Someone has added caffeine to soap. That way, all you need to do is to stumble out of bed and into the shower, wash with a bar of caffeine-infused soap, and you’re well on your way to full wakefulness. Engraved with a glorious “C” for caffeine, scented with peppermint oil and infused with caffeine anhydrous, each caffeine soap bar contains approximately 12 servings/showers per 4-ounce bar with 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving. No, we’re not kidding and no you don’t eat it. The caffeinated soap is absorbed through the skin.
CNN says the world’s first caffeinated soap is called Shower Shock and comes to us from the good folks at ThinkGeek. At $6.99 per bar that’s only 58 cents per serving. Not bad! And if you spill it, it doesn’t matter!
