I actually used this soap to clean my septum piercing when I first got it. I was told that this soap is the best in terms of gentle cleansing and I must say i was not disappointed! This soap was very good at cleansing the normal build up from a fresh piercing as well as cleansing my hands. It left my hands and nose free of dirt without being too harsh and leaving me with a tight dry feeling. I would definatley use product again. I recommend this product whole heartedly!
