Soap for Martial Arts Training

The Arm Bar Soap Company is on a mission to become the leading soap maker for combat athletes, and go to war with the nastiest of skin infections.


Throwing essential oils in a soap product and calling it 'antifungal'; or 'antibacterial’ is easy...and often
misleading.  Infusing a well-balanced ratio of premium grade oils to moisturizing emolients and
humectants to ensure that the soap can gently, and effectively, remove any potential harmful bacteria
without disturbing our healthy skin flora can take time...and hundreds of tests. 


It is our duty as a company to have every batch of our soap lab-tested to certify it's efficacy in mat born
bacterial-cleansing before being released.  A mixture of Arm Bar Soap and water are suspended in blood
agar plates streaked with a number of different bacterial strains, including E. Coli, Ringworm (Tinea),
and M.R.S.A. (Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus). After 24-48 hours of incubation at 37
degrees Celsius in a CO2 incubator, the soap is approved for release only if examination proves it to
have both ceased and inhibited bacterial growth on the blood agar plates.
