Natural Beauty Products From Island Soap & Candle Works
Many visitors to the islands feel understandably reluctant to return to the mainland. That return trip can be easier, however, when you take a bit of Hawaii home with you. Natural beauty products made in Hawaii from Island Soap & Candle Works are an excellent choice. Since 1984, Island Soap has been dedicated to making premium bath and beauty products that capture the essence and feeling of Hawaii.
Our popular natural beauty products include botanical lotions, shea butter body creams, our popular healing Surfer's Salve, a soothing spa collection array as well as body and bath oils. However, these products are only part of what we offer.
Old Polynesian Secrets for Modern Natural Beauty
Personal cleanliness was traditionally valued in the Polynesian culture of long ago. Bathing in streams, waterfalls and even the ocean was normally a daily ritual among all classes of society. While botanical emollients and soaps were part of the regimen, people also employed coconut husks, soapstone, sponges and even sand in order to exfoliate, cleanse, soften and beautify the skin.
One substance that came in very handy was the pumice stone. Pumice is a type of rock that according to ancient island tradition formed when the Hawaiian goddess Péle was particularly angry and so frothy lava was forcefully ejected under great pressure from a volcano. When this hot, frothy lava hit the water, it formed a soft, porous stone that was--- and is still--- excellent for gently removing calluses and dry skin.
At Island Soap & Candle Works we feature these exfoliating pumice stones carved into attractive shapes that are not only decorative but useful. Pumice stones are one of the popular natural beauty products that we offer.
Another product that is very effective when it comes to exfoliating the skin is the loofah. Our loofahs are made from the fruit of the loofah plant. Once dried, the botanical becomes a gently abrasive sponge that can used as part of a complete skin care regimen, helping to remove dried skin and cleansing the pores.
Don't Forget The Fun Factor
Of course, what is bath time without the traditional rubber duck? At Island Soap & Candle Works, we offer fun and quirky rubber ducks in sets of four, each of which is dressed in its own aloha and island inspired Hawaiian outfit. They aren't strictly natural beauty products, but as Ernie sang in that wonderfully silly song from the early 1970’s, they can "make bath time so much fun" and add a bit of whimsy to anyone’s bath time experience.
