2-3 bars - $4.29
4 bars - $7.40
5-8 bars - $9.75


What's Rainbow Soap made of?

The soap base is olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, and lye. Our bright colors are achieved with mica-based dyes from Nurture Soap supply company. They are cosmetic-grade dyes made specifically for soapmaking. Titanium dioxide is used for white portions of our soaps - this inert compound is used in everything from high-end paints to food to sunscreens. The scent of our soaps is achieved by simply adding the essential oil corresponding to the fragrance name.

Do you use sustainable palm oil?

Yes! We get all our palm oil from Bramble Berry Handcraft provisions. This supplier has been a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification program since 2014. For more information see Bramble Berry's RSPO page and this description of why sustainable sourcing of pal oil is so important.
