Rapha Soap

A soothing, fragrant soap rich in natural oils. The soap is inspired by the olive groves that are abundant near Mont Ventoux and is perfect for a relaxing post-ride bath. It is also highly effective for cleaning Rapha leather gloves and mitts, a tried and trusted technique used by riders down the years.

Rapha skincare products are made from the aromatic plants and herbs that grow on the Giant of Provence, Mt. Ventoux, and their scents will be familiar to any rider that has made the pilgrimage to the great mountain.

  • Atlas Cedar – a mild astringent reputedly good for relieving stress and tension.
  • Lavender – a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory used to help ease aches and pains.
  • Pine needle – reputed to ease rheumatism and respiratory complaints.
  • Rosemary – characteristic Mediterranean aroma and general tonic to stimulate the senses.
  • Juniper Berry – a centuries-old boost the immune system.
  • Lemon – refreshing citrus is naturally anti-bacterial.
  • Cypress – aromatic conifer rumoured to have anti-rheumatic properties.
  • Patchouli – anti-inflammatory often used to treat skin conditions.
  • Cistus – produces a soothing, aromatic resin.

  • Wearing gloves, apply small amount of soap to palms and front of the fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but too small Great soap but at that price it should be bigger (rap ha could probably double the size and it might cost them 50 cents more and then we would all by it again). Too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soap ever. I mean, it's soap. It smells great and it's just the ticket for washing my hands. Also works a treat when washing GT gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scent from heaven What a great soap. I'm a wheelchair racer, not a cyclist, and the thought of a fresh shower with this soap makes me want to train. A bit pricey for just soap but I also wash my leather racing gloves with it to keep them supple so it's dual purpose. Give it a try, even if it's just once as a treat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good things in small packages Very pleased with everything except the size of this soap. I guess I should have been able to visualize this based on the published weight but was ataken back when I actually saw it. I would recommend this product to others but would caution them of the amount of product you get for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells great! I bought this soap on a whim. I like the smell and the graphics imprinted on the soap. On the practical side the cube form makes it easy to pick up and apply without ruining the imprint on the soap. When I look at the soap it reminds me of TDF stages and the beauty of the Giant of Provence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great things do come in small packages! I was genuinely shocked when I saw how small the soap was in all honesty (I could have checked, having the weight of product clearly shown on site I guess), but putting that to one side .... It seems to be lasting very well and smells bloody lovely :)

how soon after washing and drying the leather gloves before applying the balm?

Asked by: Mellowmiles
Hi, you can apply the glove balm to clean, dry gloves at any time. Be sure to wipe away any excess dirt before applying the balm.
