Coconut Oil Soaps

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!
