Announcement   Welcome to the Icelandic Soap shop.

The soap is handmade from scratch with an old cold processed style method and molded into small loafs. The recipe and development of the soap is, however, our invention. Our aim is to make the soap in as nature friendly manner as possible. All ingredients are high quality and vegan friendly. The main ingredients are extra virgin olive oil, cocos oil and Icelandic water.

We use essential oils and fragrance oils for scent. The scent evokes wonderful feelings and leaves only a mild scent on the body. The soap color is natural and safe for bath and beauty products and does not stain the skin. Dark soaps and soaps with strong colors may, however, stain light color wash cloths.
Sodium hydroxide is a key ingredient for soap making and is used in making of all soap bars. It is produced by electrolysis of salt water. Our mixture of edible oils is turned into soap by reaction with sodium hydroxide, this turns the fatty acids in the oils to alkaline minerals. The acidity in the soaps is around 8-11 pH. The soap cleans very well and at the same time softens the skin and are also great for shaving.

Scientific researches have shown that soaps like these are very safe when it comes to bacteria. Bacteria that may be transported on to the soap's surface during use are not transported back to the user. This is because any bacteria on the surface will be washed away when the lather is rinsed off.

The soap can last for a long time if you make sure it dries between use.

The bags for the soaps are designed, printed and handmade by us. The ink is nature friendly and all paper can be recycled.

Created by Maggadora (Margrét St. Hafsteinsdóttir), an artist and a designer, and her son Elias Rafn Heimisson, a physicist.

Notice: Avoid contact with eyes both in people and animals.

Our soaps are now sold in very popular health stores in Iceland that are based in several places in the country. That is huge recommendation for our soaps :-) They are also sold in several other shops and are very popular among tourists.

Enjoy!

I am very very happy with my purchase! Communication, shipping, packing and customer service has been excellent, I felt like receiving a gift and even received two handmade paper gift bags for giving the soaps away! I highly recommend this shop to anyone and wishing you both Happy Holidays and a Happy new Year:)
