Handmade Soap Ingredients

Hawaiian Hibiscus
"Experience the handmade soap difference!"


Our handmade natural soap begins with a blend of edible, premium quality pure vegetable oils. We do not use artificial colorants, preservatives, alcohol, petroleum based or animal products. We are able to create a premium cold process handmade soap without the use of those ingredients, and we're sure that you'll enjoy the difference.

Base Oils



Olive Oil

We like to use a pure olive oil, and this is our primary soap making oil as olive oil contributes wonderful moisturizing properties to handmade soap. Olive oil has the ability to hold moisture next to your skin without interfering with your skin's normal functions.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contributes hardness and lathering qualities when used in soap making. Coconut oil is moisturizing when not used in excess.

Palm Oil

Palm oil is considered a hard oil and contributes hardness to the finished bar of soap.

Fragrances



Essential Oils

We use only first quality pure essential oils to add a soft natural bouquet to our soap. We avoid the essential oil blends that contain synthetic fragrance oils and other impurities. Essential oils that we use:

Cinnamon Leaf
Juniper Berry
Lavender
Lemongrass
Nutmeg
Pink Grapefruit
Peppermint
Sweet Orange
Tangerine

Botanical Fragrance Oils

Our fragrance oils are created from botanical based ingredients including roots, bark, flowers, berries and leaves. They are distilled using a method that is similar to extracting essential oils, and may contain pure essential oils and absolutes in the blend. Botanical fragrance oils we use:

Coconut
Kauai Rose
Orange
Pikake
Plumeria
Vanilla
