Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp and Haitian Vetiver Soap with Neem Oil

I've got one more Nubian Heritage soap to use and then I will have tried them all.

Nubian Heritage says:
For centuries global healers have applied hemp roots to the skin for inflammation. Cultivated in China as early as 4000 BC, Hemp has a long history of use for food, fuel, fiber, medicine and skincare. The "oil of tranquility", Vetiver, native to Asia is used in tropical communities to create calming, soothing remedies. Neem oil forms the foundation of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian practice of natural healing. Documented for 4,000 years in Sanskrit, Neem Oil's wide spectrum of medicinal properties has earned it the title "village pharmacy".Essential fatty acids and potent emollients balance naturally antiseptic and antibacterial Neem oil in this healing Hemp & Shea Butter soap. Finely crushed Hemp Seed and Vetiver gently polish and cleanse rough, dry, dull skin, leaving it smooth and soft

So this one is almost exactly like the Olive Butter soap. Same color and same scent. I just think this one is a little less moisturzing. So it lathers nice and the scent doesn't linger. These soaps after using most of them are kind of starting the get the same. The only difference is that this one has little tiny exfoliating seeds. They don't really do much.

The ingredients as always are phenominal.
Palm oil and/or coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, organic shea butter, cannabis sativa seed oil, vetiver, melia azadirachta seed (neem) oil, mineral pigment or vegetable color, natural fragrance and/or essential oil.

I like the company and I like the ingredients. But it was just like using the Olive Butter one. I was expecting something a little bit different I guess.
