"Your skin can thank us later;)"
This one is truly a make-or-break for your morning! The bar really has a perceivable tingle to it that's a strong component to the peppermint and intoxicating eucalyptus. Lathers almost instantly!
This soap has a very masculine scent! The black bar is striking and even has gold flake along the edge, which is a nice touch. Like many natural soaps, this lathers very well and creates a piney aroma all over.

This is my second black bar purchase and I love it! I usually will break it in half and put it on a draining soap holder to get the most out of it. I use it on my whole body- even my dry, sensitive face and it cleanses well without stripping out moisture. I've heard that charcoal helps with extracting impurities in the skin so it's an added bonus to have that in the soap as well. The scent is masculine but in a good way. Once I rinse off I can barely smell it on my skin which I like. The packaging is really nice and came in just a few days. It would make a great gift for a guy or gal. I highly recommended this soap.
Fine Handmade Soaps
AT COPRA SOAP, WE LIKEN THE COMPOSITION AND EXPERIENCE OF OUR COCONUT BASED BARS TO A COMFORTING MEAL YOU'D FIND AT A FINE DINING-FARM TO TABLE RESTAURANT. WE PUT A GREAT EMPHASIS ON A SMALL NUMBER OF HIGH QUALITY INGREDIENTS, AND A KEEN EYE ON PRESENTATION TO CREATE COCONUT OIL BASED BARS THAT LOOK, SMELL AND WORK GREAT.
While traditional soap is cooked in batches at high temperatures with added chemical preservatives, all of our soap is made using the "cold process method". This technique is all-natural and requires each bar be cured for over 5 weeks. This creates a high-quality, environmentally friendly soap that is great on all skin types, safe for daily use, and leaves behind no chemical waste.

Additional policies and FAQs
Soap is a combination of water (liquid), lye (sodium hydroxide) and oils. When the lye solution is mixed with oils, it causes a chemical reaction called "saponification". The result is 3 parts soap and 1 part glycerin: which is desired for it's ability to moisturize the skin.
Properly made handmade soap contains NO LYE in the end product. You cannot make real soap without lye.
No Lye = No Soap
WHAT IS "SUPERFATTING"?
Superfatting means that a certain percentage of oils have been left unconverted by the lye. This is done by discounting the amount of lye in our recipe. It leaves extra moisturizing oils in the soap for your skin to use along with the naturally occurring glycerin and ensures a safe, milder bar of soap.
All COPRA bars are super fatted between 8 and 20 percent
I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN. IS HANDMADE SOAP SAFE TO USE?
Absolutely! Most likely, you will be able to use our soaps because they are incredibly mild and gentle. Most commercial soaps are detergent based, using lots of synthetic ingredients that cause skin reactions.
DO YOU TEST ON ANIMALS?
Only my girlfriend.
DO YOU USE ANIMAL PRODUCTS IN YOUR SOAP?
All of our soaps are "Vegan Friendly" meaning, they are made using only vegetable oils and butters such as Coconut , olive, Palm and Shea. We never use animal fats such as lard or tallow.
HOW LONG DOES YOUR SOAP STAY FRESH?
Our handmade soap stays "fresh" for years. No, it's true! REAL handmade soap is like wine. It gets better with age. As the soap gets harder, it becomes longer lasting and milder. However, over time, the soap may loose it's fragrance intensity, so we recommend using within 6 months.
HOW LONG SHOULD MY BAR OF SOAP LAST?
Well that depends on how much mileage it gets. If the soap is properly stored and drained between uses, you can expect a bar to last a month or longer!
To extend the life of your soap:
•Allow to dry completely between use
•Store on a well draining soap dish
•Avoid leaving soap in direct spray of water
•Never leave in standing water
•Try using a wash cloth or shower puff instead of rubbing soap directly on the skin
HOW MUCH COCONUT IS USED IN YOUR SOAP?
All bars are between 33 and 100 percent coconut oil based
