Starting off with three delicious fruit soaps ...
- Pineapple 'n' Coconut Milk
- Avocado 'n' Coconut Milk
- Mango 'n' Coconut Milk
Makes me hungry just typing that!
Why has fruit become a "go-to" ingredient lately in skincare? We’ll let you in on a little secret… it hasn’t. Pineapple for instance has a centuries-long history of being used to treat medical ailments, Avocado has long been known to add moisture and soften skin, whilst Mango is more frequently being used to help clear pores, and although we aren’t allowed to make any claims for our soaps, we can tell you that fruit extracts include antioxidants, skin conditioning minerals/vitamins and anti-inflammatory properties. (Google it and you’ll be a convert).
We wanted to create soap that could be used by everyone while bringing them peace of mind knowing we carefully selected each ingredient. So in addition to the benefits that fruit brings, we also add a generous amount of shea butter to our olive and coconut oil base to moisturise and condition your skin even further.
How do we do it?
This soap is made using the 'Cold Process' traditional technique of soap making where the oils and butters are gently heated just enough to melt them and start the saponification process. Keeping the temperatures low retains the properties of the oils and butters. Our base ingredients in every bar of ‘cold process’ soap are olive oil which is gentle and kind to the skin blended with shea butter, castor oil and coconut oil, all of which are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients with the added bonus of creating a luxurious and creamy bar with a lovely lather.
Care for your soap : What? Care for soap? Are you kidding? No, you've spent good money on this, and it's made with beautiful, natural ingredients and untold hours of love - you want it to last.
Keep it dry. Nobody likes a soggy soap. Your soap is happiest when allowed to dry out fully between uses. The easiest way to do this is to keep it on a soap dish which allows water to drain away and air to circulate. Pop a nice bamboo soap dish into your basket here.

Environmental : As a small artisan business one of our main aims includes finding sources that are as environmentally friendly as possible. We recycle as much as we can on the boat and on our travels as well as trying to use minimal packaging with what we do use being recycled. We do have to seal the soaps, so have done so in a thin compostable wrap. We hate plastic and are diligently looking for sustainable bags for popping in the post that will still allow your goodies to arrive in the condition you expect them to be, dry and perfect.
