  • Patent number: 6734152
    Abstract: A soap that contains glacier silt that is harvested in its natural form from areas previously occupied by glaciers. Glacial silt is one of the finest materials known. This silt is as fine or finer than talcum powder. The silt is heated to 400 degrees, sifted for a uniform consistency, and blended into cleaning compositions (soaps) used for human skin. Applied to human skin, the composition acts as mild pumice. Glacier silt is distinctive from other abrasives or pumices because the silt, in its natural form, is made up of very fine particles and is essentially undetectable when being used.
