Due to the hand-made and hand-cut nature of our soaps, each bar is unique in shape and weight.  We do everything we can to make sure that our customers get what they pay for, if not more.  Orders with multiple soaps may contain soaps of varying weight, but the average weight of all the bars should be as stated if not more.
