So they are Alum blocks it appears. Interesting. I use an alum block after
shaving. Makes sense that it would do what they say. I'm not sure how well
one would pack though. They tend to crack and fall apart, and will dissolve
if you let them stay wet. Certainly something that is worth researching
further. Thanks for the tip.
