About ingredients: Sodium -ate means saponified oil. No lye remains in our soap, as they are all superfatted to be ultra moisturizing. We use food grade lye (industrial lye has trace impurities).
These are the only things you will find in our soap, and they are all great for your skin!
Coconut oil contains mainly saturated fats, and is great at preventing dry, flaky skin. It is also high in antioxidants and creates a rich lather in soap.
Rice Bran Oil
Rice bran oil is rich in Vitamin E and anti-oxidants. It is commonly used in Japan as a base for soap, as a skin moisturizer, and as a barrier ingredient and skin protector. It is said to be an effective vegan substitute for lanolin. Rice Bran Oil is especially helpful for treating dry and mature skin.
Olive oil is high in vitamin E and is a natural, deeply penetrating moisturizer. It is full of beneficial vitamins and nutrients to nourish and protect the skin.
Shea butter comes from the Shea Tree and is highly moisturizing. It heals dry skin and helps maintain the skin's elasticity.
Castor oil imparts a rich, fluffy lather to our soap. It is also an excellent moisturizer. We use only unsulphated castor oil.
Soybeans are prized in Eastern cultures. We use liquid soybean oil to condition soften the skin rather than partially hydrogenated solid oil, which has been chemically altered to solidify the oil and extend shelf life. In addition, our soybean oil is GMO free.
A smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence your mood, and even affect performance. Scents often conjure childhood memories, and can transport us to a different place and time. Many people avoid fragrances due to chemicals called phthalates. We use only phthalate free fragrances, because your health is our top priority. In addition, all our soaps are lightly fragranced without being overpowering.
A colorant used in soap as well as eye shadow and mineral makeup. Oxides give our products a nice, lightly tinted hue.
All of our products containing essential oils use them at a low, skin safe concentration. However, pregnant and nursing mothers should consult their health care provider prior to using any products containing essential oils.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Frequently Asked Questions<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
What products do you offer?
Tiki Bar Soap offers a range of handmade products from cold process soap to lotion to bath salts, bath truffles, bath oils, solid lotion bars, deodorant, nail polish, mineral makeup, and lip balms. Gift sets are also available.
What are the benefits of your soap?
Handmade soaps contain beneficial oils like coconut oil and shea butter, as well as naturally occurring glycerin, which is produced in the saponification reaction between the fatty acids of the oils with sodium hydroxide (lye). We superfat our soaps with excess oils to be super moisturizing. Supperfatting means adding some excess oils that will not be reacted with the lye to improve the moisturizing qualities of the bar. We use 5% superfat to make the soap extra moisturizing.
How is handmade soap different from what I would buy at a store?
Most commercial soaps are not even soap, but are rather a mixture of petroleum based chemicals, synthetic detergents, and moisturizing agents. In addition, the glycerin is removed from commercial soaps and sold for use in industrial processes. Handmade soaps, on the other hand, contain all of the natural glycerin that is produced during the saponification reaction, making handmade soap extra moisturizing. In addition, we superfat our soaps 5% (5% excess oils remain) to increase the moisturizing qualities. Our soap is a luxurious and decadent treat for your skin.
How is your handmade soap different from so many others out there?
My handcrafted soap is truly vegan (no goats milk, no silk, no honey, no beeswax, or animal products go into our soap) and is palm oil free. Many handmade soaps contain palm oil or lard as a cheap filler. I stopped using palm oil after learning that even ethically harvested palm oil may not be that ethical, and that sustainability credits can be purchased as futures, with current regulations doing little to nothing to protect the rain forest and orangutan population.

But what about the lye, is it harmful?
No lye is retained in the soap, as all has reacted with the oils during saponification.
Why is handcrafted soap superior to store bought?
All the natural glycerin is retained in the bar, which also adds to the moisturizing qualities of the soap, unlike commercially available soaps in which all of the glycerin has been removed and sold for other manufacturing processes. In addition, petroleum byproducts are often added back after stripping the glycerin in store bought soaps. Tiki Bar Soaps, on the other hand, are just that. Soaps, pure and simple. The only ingredients are lye, which is completely reacted, coconut oil, rice bran oil, olive oil, shea butter, castor oil, soybean oil, essential or fragrance oil for scent, and botanicals or oxide pigments for color. That's it. And when stored away from water on a nifty soap dish they last FOREVER. OK, not literally forever, but they last a long time. And they smell amazing!
What are your most popular soaps?
Local customers love the dead sea facial soap, and etsy shoppers gravitate towards Tiki themed soaps as well as the eucalyptus and mint soap. Lavender is also popular wherever I go.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>About Our Products<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Tiki Bar Soaps are produced in small batches via the cold process method using only the finest oils and butters. All of the soaps and bath & body products that we offer are vegan and are phthalate, sulfate, petroleum, palm oil and paraben free. As always, none of our products are tested on animals. Gift wrap is available upon request for no additional charge.
All of our soaps are formulated for use on the entire body. The unique combination of vegetable oils produces a bar that is moisturizing, has a rich, fluffy lather, and is hard and long lasting. Your bar will last a long time if you keep it dry between uses.
Because the soap is fresh and does not contain any artificial preservatives, we recommended that you protect your soap from direct sunlight and keep it in a cool, dry location. You should enjoy your soap within one year of purchase to ensure maximum freshness.
All of our soaps are wrapped in biodegradable packaging, and we use recyclable containers for all of our other products.
*AL residents: Please note that 4% sales tax will be added to your order.

Love this stuff- so exciting to find palm oil free products. Thank you
Thanks so much! Wonderful scent and nicely packaged!
The soap is for holiday gifts - but they smell so good i don't know if i can wait - i may have to break one out early...!!
I've bought from Amanda a handful of times. Her customer service and product quality are the best I've found on Etsy. I'll be back as soon as I get through all this yummy soap!... And thanks for the freebies!
My skin loves this lotion! My husband insists on having a bottle at work, livingroom and in the bathroom.
AMAZING SOAP!!! I love it so so so much! Amanda is so professional, thoughtful and above all a great soap maker! Thanks :)
Tiki Bar soap really helped me clean up my act, so I sent some to all my friends, and it worked for them, too!
This lotion smells amazing, and leaves my skin super soft! I am in TX, and prefer a lightweight lotion. This is perfect. It absorbs quickly, and works great.
Been using Amanda's soap for almost six months now and have to say it is the best soap I've ever used. Got some for Christmas presents and it has received rave reviews from those folks as well. Great soap and speedy delivery to boot!
