We traveled from The Golden State, back to our native Hawai'i Nei to source ingredients for this unique bar chock full of Aloha.
The Hawaiian Batch is infused with Lavender Oil from Maui, Noni Juice from Kaua'i, exfoliating Kona Coffee from the Big Island, and moisturizing Kuku'i Nut Oil from O'ahu. Combined with the rest of our original fungus-fighting oil blend, we give you a true grapplers soap bar in honor of our native homeland. Spread Aloha - Not Ringworm

The Vanilla Gorilla Batch
Dreamed up between training sessions under blue skies in Tahiti, these bacteria-beaters from the south pacific rainforest come loaded with hand-gathered ingredients known to aid grapplers.
The Vanilla Gorilla Batch is infused with three ingredients, in particular, that are directly sourced from farms on both Tahiti and Moorea; the vitamin rich Tahitian Vanilla Extract, Mono'i Oil (Tiare flowers steeped in extra-virgin coconut oil), and Tamanu Oil (extracted from a Polynesian nut used to treat wounds, and prevent infection).

The Kaminari Batch
"Kaminari" means "thunder & lightning" and it was a name that stuck while we were visiting farms and Jiu Jitsu academies between a drizzly Tokyo and Kyoto.

Each bar also contains Matcha Tea Powder sourced from the Ippudo Tea farm in Kyoto. Matcha Tea is a natural antibiotic and rich in Chlorophyll which naturallystimulates the wound healing process.

The Northern Knight Batch
A powerful bacteria destroyer inspired by antibacterial and anti-fungal ingredients found in the Northern hemisphere.
A trip to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in early 2018 led us to a Farmers Market (Marché Jean Talon) and subsequently a local soap bar that would inspire our latest After-Training Soap creation - “The Northern Knight Batch” - a powerful bacteria destroyer infused with antibacterial and anti-fungal ingredients from the Northern hemisphere.
A “Maple Syrup Soap Bar” - coaxed our curiosity and further research would lead us to learning of the 54 compounds within the sweet substance containing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.We’ve also added in two other sticky substances - Canadian Honey and Organic Pine Tar, whose piney scents and antiseptic properties paired well with the Pine needle oil we also sourced from Canada.Another major ingredient in this batch is fresh Dragon’s Blood Extract - a crimson resin (lending its color to the bar) that has been used to heal wounds, both internally and externally, since the 1600’s.We’ve also added in a 3-oil concoction of bacteria-killing Himalayan Cedar Wood, Phenol-charged Oregano, and our signature high-grade Australian Tea Tree.A mineral-rich Alaskan Glacial Mud was then blended in to pull impurities from the skin while Marshmallow Root crumbs were infused to both moisturize and exfoliate any dead skin acquired during heavy training.Winter is coming...
Other Active Natural Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Canadian Bee Honey, Australian Tea Tree Oil
The Rainbow Warrior Batch
Over the rainbow and across the Atlantic, we searched both near and far to harness the powerful ingredients worthy of our latest fungus fighting blend. The main ingredient of this batch, Niaouli Oil, is a direct relative of Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree), and grows wild on the island of Madagascar. Characterized by it’s anti-fungal + anti-microbial properties, it is widely used for its ability in killing gram-positive bacteria. Next, from the island of Hawai’i aka “The Big Island”, we sourced a healthy amount of ‘Ohi’a Lehua White Honey, a very special variation only harvested in Hawai’i by small privately owned apiaries and produced in very limited quantities. The naturally high viscosity of the Honey helps to provide a protective barrier, preventing infection and further stimulating quick wound-healing. We then added yet another tier of antibacterial power with the addition of organic, California-grown Oregano oil and O’ahu-grown Kukui Nut oil (which also helps to rehydrate the skin). This is quickly followed up with a splash of fatty-acid rich, Almond Oil, which lends its sweet scent to the batch. Next, Aloe Vera Extract is infused to reduce inflammation while a generous pour of Champagne Extract is added, whose antioxidant richness has proven to be 20 to 50 times more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E. These Rainbow Warriors are finally rounded off with Menthol Crystals, designed to re-open pores and allow our bacteria fighting recipe inside to deep cleanse. Meanwhile, Crushed Rainbow Sea Sponge is sprinkled in to help exfoliate away any dead skin acquired during heavy training.
