Bathing in luxury takes a whole new meaning as Qatar unveiled the most expensive soap in the world, made of pure gold dust, olive oil, and virgin honey and embedded with diamonds at the Qatar Pool and Spa 2013 at the Doha Exhibition Centre. The soap bar weighs around 100gm and comes with a price tag of $3,800. Dubbed the ‘Qatar Royal Soap’ with the word ‘Qatar’ in Arabic inscribed on it, the soap is being dedicated to Qatar and its great achievements in many fields, especially in winning the bid to host the FIFA 2022 World Cup.
Founded by Khan Al-Saboun Bader Hassoun and Sons, its chairman Dr. Bader Hassoun explained that the soap would serve its purpose as being beneficial for the skin with its natural and organic contents. Though highly valued, the soap will not be produced for commercial purposes.
“We have made only this one piece in order to showcase our capabilities for inventions in soap making and just to express our respects for royalty. So, the soap will not be for sale,” said Dr. Hassoun.
I wish we had more details on the soap. Like, how does it smell? Does it lather well? Will the embedded diamonds not hurt our skin?! At $3,800 and with no royal blood, I guess we’ll never know.
