I’m very proud to say there is definitely no shortage of organic, vegan bars of soaps. Vegan soaps are not only the healthiest for your skin but the quality of these soaps is unlike anything else. There happen to be a lot of fabulous vegan soap companies in Hawaii but I recently discovered a new tropical gem, Maui Soap Company. They are an independently run, small business that make vegan and organic bath & body products like lotions, soaps and lip balms that are simply exquisite.
I got the chance to try their Lime Litsea Soap ($5.49) and it was a tropical delight. These soaps are made on Maui and it’s like they pack all the essence of the island in each bar of soap. I’ve been wanting to go to Hawaii for such a long time, and it’s soaps like these that make me want to book a flight out there asap. Maui Soap Company uses the purest, most natural, organic ingredients. Here are the ingredients for this particular bar of soap…
Ingredients: Saponified oils (organic olive oil, organic palm oil, and organic coconut oil), mango butter, lime essential oil, litsea essential oil, and sprulina
I also got to try their Vanilla Lip Balm ($3.99). Vanilla is one of my all time favorite scents; I think it’s because it reminds me of cake. So the thought of smearing vanilla, cake-like goodness on my smackers is always a good thing. This lip balm is soothing and it’s the perfect consistency. We all know it’s hard to find vegan lip balms. Most lip balms unfortunately contain bee vomit (which is what honey and beeswax essentially are). Seriously why can’t all lip balm manufacturers rock candelilla wax in their lip balm formulas? Anywho, I frickin’ love this lip balm. Bottom line: it smells delicious and it makes my lips feel nutritious.
Ingredients: Organic palm fruit oil, organic coconut oil, candelilla wax, organic jojoba oil, vanilla oil, Vitamin E
I highly urge you to support these small, independently run businesses that practice sustainability, promote health and the vegan lifestyle.
