Lapping Pistons with Lava Soap

Down the board a bit there was a discussion about using Lava soap to lap pistons (from memory it was Joe S that said this ???).

Well, after visiting several stores I've come to the conclusion that Lava soap isn't sold here in Australia. There's a product called "Solyptol" which is a grey gritty soap for "work-stained hands". Is this a similar product? I'm afraid I chickened out of trying it (could be too abrasive) without knowing if it's comparable to Lava soap...
