About us

Island Soap Candle Works

Located on the beautiful island of Kauai, Island Soap & Candle Works was established in the sleepy town of Kekaha in 1984. What began as a small line of handmade soaps has, over time, expanded to become a full line of natural Hawaiian Island Botanical lotions, beeswax candles, lip balms, salves and other gift items. First becoming popular on Kauai our products soon spread to fine gift shops throughout Hawaii and can now be found on the mainland. Over the years our main factory has expanded several times, but our commitment to quality and aloha has remained the same.

Over time our island visitors began making requests to come and see how our products are made so we opened a smaller version of our soap and candle factory in Kilauea in 1997 on the north shore of Kauai. The store soon became a popular destination as both a charming retail gift shop and a working factory where visitors could watch soap and candles being made. With the success of our first store we soon opened our second location in Koloa on the south shore of Kauai.

Then, in the fall of 1999, we opened our third location in Honolulu at the Ward Warehouse. When visiting Hawaii, make sure to stop in and see how we make our soaps and candles while you enjoy the tropical aromas of the freshly made products curing on the racks.
