E Komo Mai! (Welcome!) 

We are thrilled to share with you our company's mission, which is to spread joy and beauty by creating amazing products that capture the essence of Hawaii. We are also committed to sustainability and eco-friendlliness by exploring plastic alternatives and recyclable packing materials and containers.

Our customers are our top priority, and we strive to provide them with high-quality products that are free of harmful toxins such as phthalates and parabens. Additionally, we are dedicated to giving back to our local communiy by donating a portion of our quarterly profits to local organizations.

Our company has a rich history that started in 2000 in beautiful Keaau, Hawaii. After experiencing dry and itchy skin, we embarked on a mission to create our own detergent-free soap using natural ingredients. As demand for our handmade products grew, we expanded our offerings and are now excited to offer premium hand-poured Natural Soy Wax Candles that will bring the essence of Hawaii into your home.

We take pride in crafting our products in small batches on our tiny family farm in Keaau, using only the finest ingredients and naturally soft rainwater. Our Soap is hydrating and gentle on the skin, and our fragrances and essential oil blends are phthalate free and environmentally conscious.

We are delighted to share our love of Hawaii with you and hope that our products will bring a little bit of joy and luxury to your life. Mahalo for your support!
