25togo: dinosoap

the ‘dinosoap’ soaps by 25togo offer the experience of fossil excavation as a result of normal use

dinosoap‘, designed by taiwan-based studio 25togo, incorporates the experience of fossil excavation into daily washing, as soap bars whose outer layers dissolve with use to reveal the image of a dinosaur skeleton beneath. composed of apricot kernels and other natural ingredients, the soaps reveal their miniature fossils after two to three months of normal use.

  • this is such a simple and brilliant idea!

  • A piece literally of “love to rub” product. It will make our day with every single washing!!

  • Just saw this at an international design show in New York. It is so cool and fun to play with. I guess my baby will wash hands more with this soap!!!! Love it!

  • So cool 🙂 Especially for the kids. But there must be a typo in the descriprion: 2-3 months of normal use??? a soap bar does not even last that long and I’d ecpect the ‘fossils’ to appear after 2-3 days of use, not months.
