The Lava-Puhi Batch
Straight from our Hawaiian roots, we re-visited home to gather another round of powerful ingredients born from Hawai'i's Volcanic-rich soil for our latest After-training soap batch.
We blended purifying Black Lava rock salt sourced from the Big Island with skin-clarifying Giant and Chocolate Awapuhi Zingiber strains from O'ahu. Organic, vitamin-rich Papaya juice and Taro root extract were also added along with a detoxifying, Alaea red clay from Maui, which has been used for centuries in Hawai’i to extract impurities from wounds.
Other Active Natural Ingredients: Macadamia Nut Oil, Maui Lavender Leaves, Kaua'i Coffee Grounds, Australian Tea Tree Oil, Ground Hawaiian Turmeric ('Ōlena), Coconut Oil

Tea Tree Oil: Antimicrobial and antifungal proven to prevent skin ailments such as ringworm, acne, athlete's foot, dandruff, and most importantly, the dreaded Staphylococcus Aureus, or Staph infection.
Macadamia Nut Oil: This oil is an excellent source of palmitoleic acid, which is a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy cell membranes, hydrates the skin and supports skin healing, especially with those annoying mat burns.
Crushed Maui Lavender Leaves: Used in this batch as a gentle, fragrant exfoliant.
Kaua’i Coffee Grounds: Sourced from the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, these coffee grounds serve as an exfoliant to gently scrub off any dead skin. The caffeine in the coffee grounds also acts as a vasoconstrictor which constricts blood vessels, allowing the skin to nicely tighten.
Awapuhi Juice: Awapuhi, also known as Hawaiian ginger, is known as an effective antiseptic, and anti-bacterial.
Taro Root Extract: Loaded with vitamin E and vitamin A, the taro root works to eliminate skin conditions and boost overall cellular health, meaning that our wounds heal faster.
Papaya Nectar: Papaya is stocked with vitamin C and E, which helps fight off topical free radicals that damage the skin's collagen and elastin in addition to moisturizing and hydrating the skin.
Black Lava Salt: Sourced from The Big Island, black lava salt serves as an exfoliant as well as help to relieve dry and itchy skin as well as serious skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis.
Alaea: This detoxifying red clay from Maui, has been used for centuries in Hawaiian culture to extract impurities from wounds.
