Pear Soap is an excellent product. This is a product I began using years ago. My first experience with Pears Soap was experimental. I was in a Dollar store, saw that it was a big bar and inexpensive but without a strong odor. I have used it and liked it every since. Unfortunately, local stores where I live don't carry it so I finally decided to order it through Amazon.com. The product is an excellent one. I believe it cleans very well, lasts quite awhile but is not loaded with bunches of artificial additives. I have used both the Mint Extract version and original Transparent version of the soap and I like both. If the buyer is interested in power scents such as Lilac, Wintergreen, or something with an overpowering scent this is NOT the soap to buy. If, as a buyer you want a soap that gets the job done without a lot of flair, this is it.
