Kopa Kauai Sea Salt Soaps are handmade with love and aloha on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. I visited Kauai last September and actually got to meet the makers of this brand and take home one of their soaps. What an absolute treasure!
These soaps are very moisturizing and they create a beautiful lotion-like lather. “The minerals in sea salt help your skin absorb glycerine, a natural by-product of handmade soap, making for a smooth and refreshing bathing experience.” My favourite part about this soap is that once you’re done using it, the bar will get hard like a polished stone. This way it doesn’t soften/melt or leave any soap-waste in the shower. They don’t even need a soap dish! This property also allows the bar to last longer. I just finished my bar from last year (getting a full 4 months use out of it!) and yes, I made sure to order more before I ran out.
This soap is so unique. I really haven’t used anything like it before and you have to try it to know what I mean. They’re made with sea salt, coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, mango butter, and whichever amazing scents you decide on. I’m a big fan of the Lavender-Mint and the Grapefruit-Rose. The Hawaiian florals like Pikake and Tuberose are gorgeous as well. A little escape to Hawaii each time you shower.
The family behind this line is so special. Jean started Kopa Kauai in 2013 to compliment her daughter’s all natural skincare line. You many have heard of it before…it’s only one of my favourite brands: Leahlani Skincare! (Yes, for real.) Jean’s practice of soap making quickly turned into a passion. Her artistic talent to combine botanicals and soap making has turned into a much loved business. Kopa Kauai soaps are selling all over the world. If you’re on Kauai make sure to visit the Hanalei Bay Market, you can also find these soaps on her Etsy Shop and at local boutiques in New York City.
The genuine kindness I received from this family is something I will never forget. Their work inspires me everyday! I know it will do the same for you.
