The Green Thirteen #8:Tropical Traditions Liquid Soap Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/3) CLOSED

Thursday, November 19, 2009 Posted by Dina N


One way I try to keep everyone at home healthy during flu season is to make sure we wash our hands frequently. I set an example for my kids by washing my hands numerous times every day. To make things a little more exciting for them (and for myself), I started buying foaming soaps - the kids think it's oh-so-much-fun to get bubbles out of the soap dispenser! And a good smelling bottle of hand soap makes the chore of washing hands seem almost like pampering to me.

After I experienced the bar soaps from Tropical Traditions, I just had to try their liquid soaps. Unlike most commercially available soaps, these natural liquid soaps do not contain added ingredients to make them thicker. Tropical Traditions liquid soaps are made with organic virgin coconut oil as their base, and the scented varieties use only high-quality organic essential oils.

Just as the Tropical Traditions bar soaps, the liquid soaps come in three varieties: unscented, tea tree, and lavender. They are bottled in foam pump dispensers that adds air to the soap. I noticed just a half-pump is sufficient to use because the soap produces rich lather. The unscented soap contains only saponified organic virgin coconut oil. The two scented varieties also have organic essential oils of tea tree and lavender. There are no additives that may irritate the skin.

My favorite is the tea tree liquid soap. All three are gentle on the skin and will likely last quite a while. Tropical Traditions also sells 32 z. refill bottles - an economical way to reuse the pump dispensers.

The coconut liquid soaps would make a great gift - whether on their own or added to a spa-themed gift basket. You can purchase them individually, or in combination with a refill bottle. Tropical Traditions also offers various skin care packages, or you  could make your own package - I would suggest pairing the liquid soaps with bar soaps and a shampoo bar plus a moisturizing cream or organic lotion for the ultimate skin care gift. Or, for the perfect 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.
