Soap-on-a-rope is not new; the Imperial leather soap company is credited with the concept in the late 1940s to keep soap dry and preventing it from getting mushy. These brands have given the concept a conscious artisanal reboot.

Scrub & Soothe Soap on a Rope by KAIBAE: This artisan-made scrub soap is inspired by the resilience of wild plants in remote regions of Africa. It’s formulated with ingredients that have been hand-harvested by the brand’s partnering communities and crafted in small batches by an artisanal sap maker on the central coast of California.

Mater Charcoal Rope Soap: Made for face, hands, and body, made with all-natural, plant ingredients in small batches and a natural coconut husk rope. It contains activated charcoal to absorb toxins and impurities along with tea tree and eucalyptus essential oils for a refreshing afterglow.

Baja Desert Soap from Kindred Black: These all-natural handmade soaps are consciously created with a focus on people and the environment in Baja, Mexico. Wild and sustainably harvested flowers, plant extracts, and other nutrients are harvested from the Baja deserts.

Welcome Soap “Taishoken”: Made by Tamanohada, a 120-year-old soap factory located in Tokyo. The shape of this soap is based on the Tai fish, or bream, which in Japanese culture is a symbol of prosperity and wealth.
