Handmade Coconut Soaps

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, Nagai Oil, the skin healing Tamanu Oil, and olive oil. Soap making (referred to as “saponification) takes place when caustic soda, which has been dissolved in water, acts upon fats in the oil. Because of the combinations of high-quality virgin coconut oil, the resultant soaps are packed full of glycerine (with normal soaps the glycerine is taken out to make Glycerine). This high level of glycerine renders our soaps softer, lathery, creamier, and more gentle as well as super moisturizing for the skin.

When selecting your bath and body products or coconut oil soap below, just be aware that these are CHEMICAL-FREE and are gorgeous hand-milled coconut soaps – All natural with no artificial flavoring or chemical preservatives. Our products are never tested on animals. For even more great bath and body products check out our full range of natural skincare products using the menu in the left hand column.

Most soaps are mass-produced with solvents and chemicals. Even coconut soaps are usually made from copra oil. Copra comes from old, partially moldy coconuts that have been broken up and put in unhygienic containers often for weeks at a time. Sitting on inter-island wharves with flies and mildew, the goodness and antioxidants of coconuts are virtually destroyed and there are risks of toxins and unwanted bacteria forming in coconut oil made from copra.

This is not the case with Volcanic Earth. Our beautiful handmade soap is made from Virgin Coconut Oil extracted within 1 – 3 hours of cracking open the coconut (referred to as the DME or Direct Micro Expelling method). Every batch is virgin, rich in antioxidants, and chemical-free. Our premium Virgin Coconut Oil is made using only fresh coconuts from the pristine, rural areas of Efate Island, and some of the more remote outer islands of Vanuatu. The ultra-nutrient rich volcanic soil of Vanuatu and the absence of urban pollution, insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizers are the perfect environments for coconut trees to flourish. These factors, coupled with the DME method of production, explain why our Virgin Coconut Oil has been described as the best coconut oil in the world
