“This petri dish soap is designed to look exactly like what you’re trying to wash off: bacteria! This particular soap is modeled after Serratia marcescens. S. marcescens is found in soil, water, and even the human GI tract. Some strains, however, can cause urinary and respiratory tract infections, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, septicemia, and meningitis.”
It’s a funny reminder to wash well so you get those germs off and stay healthy.
Soap consists of an all natural, hypo-allergenic coconut oil base. This base, when un-dyed, has a slight amber color due to the all natural ingredients… making it look even more realistic as petri dish agar
This “bacteria” is good for your skin too. Scented with a sweet pea fragrance that has nothing to do with bacteria, but smells fantastic.
***Also available unscented. Please specify in notes to seller upon checkout if you would like unscented soaps. Otherwise, soaps will come scented.
Design will be very similar to the picture shown above. However, since no two soaps are exactly alike, you will be receiving a one of a kind petri dish soap.

Please be aware that this soap, like any other soap, could be irritating to sensitive skin. Please test on a smaller area before washing large areas of skin.
The soap in petri dishes may “sweat” just slightly due to the fact that petri dishes are not air-tight. This is completely normal, as the soap is drawing in moisture from the air.
-To un-mold soap, just flip the petri dish over, and gently press the center of the dish until the soap slides out. Do not push too hard, as these petri dishes have not been tested for strength! If you have trouble un-molding, you can also place the dish in a freezer for a few minutes before trying again-
