This wonderful oil is popular as a massage oil so you bet we’re going to add it into our soap bars!

Every single time you lather up, you should treat yourself to a self-massage and with a bar containing this sensual oil, that simply glides over the skin, it’s easy!

Olive Pomace oil also has excellent skin benefits, from combatting stubborn dry areas to promoting a gorgeous, golden glow. It is pressed from the fruity pulp of the olive and maintains a deep golden color in its oil form.

Your skin will feel rejuvenated and silky soft when you step out of the shower!

Organic Coconut Oil

Speaking about silky skin, it doesn’t get much better than fatty-acid rich coconut oil!

Not only will coconut oil provide the type of hydration dreams are made of, its rich concentration of fatty acids and lauric acid will boost collagen production for plumper, more youthful looking skin with improved elasticity. 

Powerful antioxidants in coconut simply enhance these benefits and make your skin healthier than ever before!

Organic Sustainable Palm Oil

Palm trees are amazing sources of health and well-being.

This oil is smooth and silky, with no real odour, making it ideal for use in our soap bars where we want essential oils to provide the luscious scents!

However, there is quite a bit of controversy surrounding palm oil because in some regions, palm oil cultivation has, and continues to, contribute to deforestation.


We love our environment and would never use a product that contributes to its decline in any way. 


For this reason, the palm oil we use is completely sustainable, meaning it is never sourced from areas of concentrated biodiversity or primary forests. 

In fact, sustainable palm oil has many positive benefits, from supporting poverty reduction to providing environmental as well as wildlife protection. 

Avocado Oil

Avocado toast is a favorite around here, and the oil is no exception. From the kitchen to the tub, this oil provides a heap of health and skin benefits. 

This highly beneficial oil is pressed from the fleshy fruit that surrounds the avocado pit. It is easily absorbed by the skin, providing immediate hydration and softness.

Avocado oil provides phenomenal moisturizing properties thanks to its rich array of fatty acids and high levels of skin repairing Vitamin E.
