    Handmade Soap in Aruba

    Someone posted, I believe on FB, about someone on the island that makes handmade soaps. She had purchased at the arts and crafts event that I believe is held monthly at the Ostrich Farm. They had a Facebook page and I think you could buy some elsewhere. Of course now I can’t find any information on it. I tried looking back on a few Aruba FB pages and did a google search. Has anyone purchased any soaps or have you seen them around the island? TIA

    When we stay at Manchebo they give a bar of Aruba soap in the welcome tray. I liked it a lot. One of their popular soaps was a black volcanic soap. The vendor was at the managers meet and greet selling it. I’ll look through my stuff and see if I can find the name.

    Found it. Here’s a link to my post
    SoapOro

    I think I remember something about selling the business but not sure. It could still be a lead.

    I’ve tried Aruba Aloe’s Dream soap and liked it. They also have the charcoal soap.

    Well, the mystery has been solved! I saw a FB post for CC Bath & Body Aruba. I went to their page and realized this is the one I was looking for. They have a store in the Antraco Plaza Mall ( I had to google it to see where it was ). I’ll definitely check it out when we’re there in Nov.

    Glad you found it! You’ll have to let us know more in your November trip report!

    I bought a few soaps from this place: https://holistikalabs.com/
    They are in one of the Kiosks near Azia restaurant.
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.
