ARLINGTON, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If a cold shower isn’t enough to get groggy folks going in the morning, lathering with caffeine might.

Shower Shock is the world’s first ever caffeinated soap.

Each bar contains approximately 12 servings/showers with 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving.

That’s just enough of a little java jolt to kickstart the day.

The soap works because caffeine can be absorbed through the skin, so building up a good lather is essential.

Product spokesman Shane Peterman says the all-natural soap includes herbs like peppermint oil which also wakes up the senses.

If used in a cold shower it could be even more effective, since freezing water already packs a punch.

Though it won’t necessarily have you bouncing off the walls, Peterman says a nice, clean buzz from it is pretty common.

Therefore, washing with it right before bed is probably not the best idea.

Shower Shock is available on
