What Is a Signature Bath Bomb From The Hawaiian Soap & Trading Company™?
It’s a luxurious, island-inspired, sensory bath time experience like no other! Our artisan-made bath bombs are handmade with Aloha (Hawaiian for love) and offer a spa-style transport directly to heavenly paradise without leaving your own bathtub.
Our handmade, cruelty-free, and completely USA-made bath bombs are the size of tennis balls (4.5 ounces+), round, and super fizzy and colorful when you drop one into your bath water. A Hawaiian-inspired bathing experience for all those who need to slip away to paradise...one bath at a time.
How Do I Use the Aromatherapy Shower Bombs?
Aromatherapy Shower Bombs: Place your new Hawaiian Soap & Trading Company™ Shower Bomb away from the stream of water. Allow your shower bomb to get as much steam as possible so it releases aromatherapy. A water-free shelf or soap saver will make your shower bomb last even longer. Enjoy!
Getting the Most Out Of Your Natural Sea Sponge Soaps:
Natural Florida Sea Sponge Soaps: Your new Hawaiian Soap & Trading Company™ Natural Sea Sponge Soap is handmade with cruelty-free goats' milk, extra virgin olive oil, and coconut milk with an embedded, natural, Florida sea sponge, which will not mold, is antibacterial, and hypoallergenic.
Wet your sponge soap to begin creating a thick, rich lather. Use the soap side on your body. Once you've created a rich lather there, flip it over and use its natural sea sponge as your built-in washcloth. Enjoy your soap's wonderful fragrance as aromatherapy. Keep your sponge for years to come and clean it as-needed with baking soda and warm water.
Tell Me About Lye. Is It Safe and Necessary in Soap?
It sure is! Lye is safe, customary, and absolutely necessary when it comes to making soaps. To make soap, a chemical reaction between an oil (or oils, such as coconut oil, organic Shea butter, olive oil, and more) and lye must take place. This process is called saponification. Without lye, soap isn't soap, including even the most natural and handmade soaps, which we offer. Store soaps contain lye and finding this ingredient on the label can take some decoding. It may be listed as ingredients named "sodium palmate" or "saponified olive oil," which are the chemical names for mixing palm or olive oil with sodium hydroxide (lye).
During the saponification (soap curing) process, the lye and oils transform into soap and what was lye is no more. Pretty cool, huh? Now you know!
While not all of our handmade soaps include lye, we thought it important to offer some education on this interesting and relevant topic.
