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 our 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, gentler and super moisturizing for the skin.

Most soaps are mass-produced with solvents and chemicals. Even coconut soaps are usually made from copra oil. Copra comes from old, partially mouldy coconuts that have been broken up and put in unhygienic containers often for weeks at a time. Sitting on inter-island wharfs with flies and mildew, the goodness and antioxidants of coconuts is 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 (referrred 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. The ultra-nutrient rich volcanic soil and the absence of urban pollution, insecticides, pesticides and fertilizers is the perfect environment 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.
