Boldly Original Soaps


Today we want to feature a few outstanding soaps. Not only does everyone need a good bar of soap, but there is something indulgent about a specialty cleansing product. With the winter holiday season abutting New Years, we feel now is the ideal time to share with loved ones products to help symbolically wash away the difficulties of 2020 and start anew, clean as a whistle. Add any of these products to a basket with a candle, one of our drinkware picks and a brick of Ruk'u'x Ulew for a luxurious spa package or include a bar with the Guy Cotten Duffle for a travel pack that's perfect the avid adventurers in your life.


We begin with the ‘ĀINA soap from Indigenous Soap Company. This soap is beautifully scented, hand made, and comes from the Island of Oahu's Love Chance, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and a soap making visionary. Incorporating botanical ingredients and promoting positive, connectivity, and healing, the Indigenous Soap Company shares incredible gifts that are capable of transforming your skin and your mindset.

HAWAIIANS HAVE BEEN USING NATIVE PLANTS, SEAWEEDS, MINERALS, CLAYS AND OILS FOR CENTURIES TO MAINTAIN HEALTH AND VITALITY. ‘ŌLENA (TURMERIC), LAUKAHI (PLANTAIN), KUKUI NUT OIL, COMFREY AND ‘ALOE HAVE ALL BEEN ADDED TO BRING YOUR SKIN BACK TO LIFE. SO, MALAMA KA ‘ĀINA (TAKE CARE OF THE LAND) AND NEXT TIME YOU'RE IN THE SHOWER LET THE ‘ĀINA MALAMA YOU! (1)


 

Also relying on the cleansing and healing properties of herbs and botanicals is Remedios del Bosque, or 'Forest Remedies'. While not advertised as such, their basic oil, Oleo Basico, is our go to oil for two step cleansing. We simply massage the oil into our skin to break down makeup and any residual dirt from the day, then we remove the oil with a gentle saponified cleanser. The combination of moringa butter with olive, argan, jajoba, caster, and cacoa oils leaves our skin feeling extraordinarily moisturized and prevents our harsher cleansers from stripping our skin. We've also heard it's excellent for beard care! Plus, fragranced with frankincense, lavender, geranium and white sage essential oils the aroma is intoxicating and certainly deserving of the extra skincare step required by a second wash.
