The Green Thirteen #4: Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Bar Soaps Review and Giveaway (Ends 11/28) CLOSED

Saturday, November 14, 2009 Posted by Dina N


I love great soaps. There is something so pampering, self-indulgent in a good way, and almost decadent in their delicious scent and rich lather! When I discovered that Tropical Traditions, America's source for coconut oil, makes natural soaps, I just had to try them.

Tropical Traditions soaps are made with Organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil as their base, and the scented varieties use only high-quality organic essential oils. The Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is traditionally made from fresh organic coconuts.

The coconut bar soaps come in three varieties: unscented, tea tree, and lavender. The unscented bar is shaped like a rectangle and contains only saponified organic virgin coconut oil. The two scented bars are round and, in addition to saponified organic virgin coconut oil, have organic essential oils of tea tree and lemon or lavender. There are no additives, chemicals, colorants, or anything that can irritate the skin.

I loved all three bars. They make just the right amount of lather, and the two scented varieties have a delicate aroma. All bars are gentle on the skin and will likely last quite a while.

The coconut soap bars would make a great gift - whether on their own or added to a spa-themed gift basket. You can purchase them individually, or at a discount in packs of 5 or 10. Tropical Traditions also offers various skin care packages, or you  could make your own package - I recommend pairing the bar soaps with a great moisturizing cream or organic lotion for the perfectly pampering gift. Or, for the ultimate organic soap combo, get the Tropical Traditions organic soap package where you can enjoy one of each variety of their bar soaps and liquid soaps.

Deal Alert
If you decide to buy the soap or anything else from Tropical Traditions, as a first-time customer you can get a FREE Virgin Coconut Oil book with purchase. Find out all about coconut oil and its benefits! Just use code 5251001 in the Referred by a Friend section and the book will be added to your order at no charge.

    Their citrus one is esp. yummy sounding!
    Oh, and I like the idea of using any of their cleaners but I'd really like to try the Laundry detergent: http://www.householdtraditions.com/laundry_detergent.htm

    As far as the recipes go:
    I'd like to try the Pumpkin muffins (http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/index.cfm/2009/11/14/glutenfree-pumpkin-muffins)

    OR the Coffee Heaven recipe.
