Consumers now are reconsidering what they purchase and are looking for new products that support their new normal. Health and hygiene now become our top priority.

RJ Santos of Randolf Clothing also teased their new line of soap on their Instagram page. The transparent-like soap bar has abstract pastel designs inside that are actually soap, too! Our curiosity definitely piqued at this one, because the little colorful soap strips remind us of what peeking through a microscopic slide looks like.
