Soap – we all use it, but do we know what’s in it? No question about the natural soaps produced by Kona Natural Soap Company. These bars smell good enough to eat and are 100% natural.
They start with a vegan base of a combination of olive oil, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, Hawaiian kukui nut oil, and natural Hawaiian rainwater and add only essential oils for fragrance. For some of the soaps they then add things like Kona Coffee beans or cacao (yes that stuff that chocolate is made from) all grown on their farm just steps away from their quaint and fragrant soap factory.
Greg Colden, the soap master, crafts this stuff by hand with absolute attention to detail and an ever-expanding line of “flavors” – everything from lavender-ginger to peppermint, cinnamon, Hawaiian cacao, and paprika.
The guys that run this place have a passion for providing great natural Hawaiian products to the world and after producing some of the best soap we have ever seen also have time to grow and sell Kona Coffee and cocoa beans. Hawaii is apparently the only state in the USA that can grow the beans of chocolate delight. They also have natural Hawaiian kukui oil, an easily-absorbed skin treatment and beauty aid that contains vitamins A, C and E.
If you are planning on a trip to the Big Island, do take the time to visit Greg and Marty’s farm and soap factory. They are wonderful hosts; the location is exotic and the soap divine.
