For those of you who have been to any of the Hawai’i islands, you know that each island has its own distinct features and character. If you’re someone who loves the hustle and bustle of a city surrounded by paradise, you might find O’ahu appealing or if you prefer the quiet simplicity of an island full of lush green mountains and hiking to boot, than Kaua’i may be more fit for your taste.
But if you’re looking for something right in between, with a combination of a large city and the beauty to go with it than we’d suggest Maui the birthplace of Maui Soap Company. The company’s start was inspired by its birthplace, where the owners started making handmade soaps on a small farm in Keokea.
Surrounded by goats, chicken and horses in an upcountry setting, Robin was inspired to create something that was just as beautiful as the place that surrounded her. They found a source of organic coconut oil, began experimenting, started at craft fairs and were soon selling their products at retailers throughout the islands.
