Coconut Oil Soaps


Coconut Oil Soap Benefits

Discover the wonderful benefits and uses of coconut oil soaps from helping reduce inflammation, battle skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis to freeing your skin of dirt and oils. Coconut oil soap benefits also include its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory qualities, along with its ability to provide deep cleansing and natural moisturizing agents.

Coconut oil soap is also known to be very gentle in comparison to regular soaps which can leave behind residue on the skin after use. When comparing other soaps with coconut oil soaps, you should not only consider their effectiveness but also their differences in ingredients used. While most traditional soaps are made using synthetic surfactants or foaming agents derived from petrochemicals, the Volcanic Earth brand opts for plant-based ingredients—including those found within coconuts—to create a cleaner product that doesn’t negatively affect the environment, as the residue of all soaps eventually end up down a drain pipe and into mother Earth.

Great skin starts with a natural soap and a pure coconut oil soap bar is hard to beat. Our handmade, coconut oil soap bars are made from 100% pure, Virgin Coconut Oil overflowing with antioxidants and moisturizing goodness.

Suitable for ALL SKIN TYPES including oily skin, dry skin and skin prone to Acne, Psoriasis or Eczema. In fact, our Tamanu Oil Soap Bars (see below) are coconut soaps with the added benefits of pure TAMANU OIL to specifically target these every day skin conditions as well as sun damage, skin blemishes, age spots, stretch marks and wrinkles.

Volcanic Ash and Pumice are also used extensively by Volcanic Earth in our own Healing Centre Spa, as is the case with some of the other top beauty and health spas around the world. It follows that our Volcanic Pumice Soap (see below) is a perfect, exfoliating soap bar for removing dirt, grit, grease and grime – ideal for gardener’s hands.

Soap is believed to have been discovered thousands of years ago after cooking fat dripped into fire ash resulting in a chemical reaction that created soap. Since this time, soap has basically been made exactly the same way but using either caustic soda or potash dissolved in water and animal fat or oil.

Volcanic Earth’s Natural Soaps are made to this age old recipe, however animal fat has been replaced with our beautiful Virgin Coconut Oil, Nangai Oil and Tamanu Oil. Soap making (referred to as “saponification) takes place when caustic soda, which has been dissolved in water, acts upon fats in the oil. It is the combination of these 3 super oils and their high quality that renders our soaps softer, lathery, creamier, gentler and super moisturizing for your skin.

Most soaps are mass-produced with solvents and chemicals. Even coconut soaps are usually made from low-grade copra oil. This is not the case with Volcanic Earth. Our beautiful handmade soaps are made from Virgin Coconut Oil extracted within 1 – 3 hours of cracking open the coconut (referrred to as the DME or Direct Micro Expelling method). Every batch is virgin, rich in antioxidants and chemical-free.

“Where can I order the Volcanic Ash Soap in Australia? My sister bought some back from Vanuatu for my 9 year old to try for a really bad case of Molluscum Contagiosum (water warts). She had 93 of them on her body. For 3 years I tried everything and within a week of using this soap, they were gone….unbelievable!! I would love to get some more soap.”

Our handcrafted / handmade coconut oil soaps are the very best in skin care using only safe, natural ingredients. Small batch runs of handcrafted soap ensure the quality of each batch. We also hand mix, hand cut and hand wrap each bar. Curing time is long (3 – 4 weeks) which means that the soap is ready for immediate use when it reaches you.

So why is each one of our coconut soaps a handmade soap when we could mass-produce them?

The main reason is to help create much-needed jobs for indigenous Ni Vanuatu – particularly women. The other reason is the fact that a handmade soap says something special about Volcanic Earth, our staff and what we stand for.

Thank you in advance for stopping by and we hope that you enjoy our selection of lovely, handmade soap bars!
