Digital Soaps: Handmade Gaming Control-shaped Soaps

Years ago when we worked in the field of video game publications we used to half-jokingly mention some of our coworkers regularly exuded a "ripe" bouquet thanks to their aversion to bathing, caused by obsessive gaming habits and dismissal of basic daily grooming. If only if these realistic gaming and electronics shaped soaps were available back then, we'd have fonder olfactory memories of those times. Shaped like controllers from the likes of Nintendo, Playstation and Xbox consoles from throughout the years, these soaps from Digital Soaps would make any hardcore gamer's bathroom a happier one...

There would be an undeniable temptation to enter the Contra code or "haryuken" if we had a SNES shaped vegan-friendly glycerin or cocoa butter soap. Digital Soaps are free of animal testing, detergents, sulfates or sugar solutions and cost anywhere between $3.00 for a cellphone shaped soap to $16 for a realistic PlayStation 3 controller. Example of ingredients include:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Palm Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Glycerin (kosher, of vegetable origin)
  • Purified Water
  • Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent)
  • Sorbitol (moisturizer)
  • Sorbitan Oleate (emulsifier)
  • Soy Bean Protein (conditioner)
  • Fragrance and color

Scents can be customized and include Apple jack and peel, berry, coconut lime verbena, cola, dirt, dragon's blood (?), grapefruit jasmine, sandalwood, and something mysteriously described as "Sexy for Men" (does this imply this scent will make you sexy or will smell sexy specifically to other men?). Customize your own gaming control shaped soap and order at Digital Soaps for the stinky gamer in your household.
