Limu Līpoa: Seaweed and Mango Butter
Limu Līpoa: Seaweed and Mango Butter Soap
For thousands of years, seaweed has been used in skin care because it is full of vitamins that nourish and replenish the skin.
Limu Lipoa is a type of seaweed that can be found in Waimanalo Bay. It grows in deeper water, but can be harvested when it breaks free and washes to shore. Gathering limu lipoa is a family affair - we have a blast swimming and and diving collecting the green, leafy strands. We bring it home and process it through a special drying method that is then used in our soap.
Limu is the Hawaiian word for seaweed, which plays a special part in traditional food dishes in the islands. Local families go to the shore to collect limu together and enjoy eating it with fish or drying it with salt.
We make our soaps with natural Hawaiian seawater. The seawater acts as an oil in the soap, making it creamy, rich in lather and palm oil free.
For use on body, hands and face. **As with all soap, avoid getting it in eyes.
Limu Līpoa seaweed naturally smells of evergreens and saltwater. This soap has a crisp, musky scent that will remind you of a peaceful seaside.
