Starbuck's Latest Competitor: A Bar of Soap?

A new brand of soap, "Shower Shock", contains caffeine, which is absorbed through a bather's skin. Per shower, Shower Shock users can expect the same amount of caffeine as contained in two cups of coffee to seep into their blood stream. Check out coverage of the product launch at the Guardian UK.

Sounds pretty incredible, yes. Then again,
you can buy water laced with nicotine these days.

If you want a jolt with your suds, you'll be paying about $7 for a bar. That may sound expensive, but consider that you'd pay as much for two cups of Starbucks.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
