Defense Soap Review

 

Defense Soap Review

If you’ve been training jiu-jitsu for even a little while, you’ve probably heard of Defense. This line of soaps, oils, wipes, and other hygiene products is well known in the community for its reputation of fighting off bacterial and fungal infections that are common in contact sports and are passed around through skin-to-skin contact.
