Coconut handmade soap bars are very smoooooth and relaxing. The coconut tree is known as the 'tree of life' and evokes a warm feeling of paradise. But, be warned, the coconut is responsible for more deaths annually than sharks. This would be more widely known if someone had the imagination to produce a blockbusting movie about them. Rest assured though, our soaps are perfectly tamed; laid back even. Just imagine yourself chilling in a tropical paradise with a pina coloda in hand whilst the sea gently laps at your feet.

Furthermore, beeswax is high in vitamin A which has been found to support cell reconstruction and health. What a substance! Thank you bees.
Olive oil will absorb into the skin and form a protective barrier against the elements. It also acts as a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin (to save you rushing for the dictionary), and is said to help aid skin cell regeneration.
Coconut oil is wonderfully moisturising and also adds a barrier to the skin protecting it from the elements. Its cleansing ability is amazing and is one of the few oils that produce a soap that will lather in salt water; just in case you were looking for such a thing.
Shea butter is rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. This oil forms a breathable barrier on your skin that helps to protect it from harsh elements like the sun and wind. It is well known for soothing skin irritations, sun protection, healing minor cuts and burns and of course skin moisturising.
Castor oil acts as a humectant, (you know what that is now), by drawing moisture from the air. It is easily absorbed by the skin making it a great skin softener and conditioner.
