Healing Soap Bar
A beautiful range of handmade luxury soaps from Tanaka.
The Healing Bar embodies our philosophy—it’s a highly active, efficient and concentrated soap that was originally made for our founder’s mother. This bar will give you an instant glow, thanks to the powerhouse that is turmeric. This much-loved ingredient provides an abundance of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits to your skin. It soothes and protects complexions, creating radiant and even results. The appearance of healthier, more vibrant skin is aided by ginger’s warming properties, which increases blood flow. The sprinkling of poppy seeds provides gentle exfoliation, removing dirt and smoothing rough patches. The dash of frankincense gives The Healing Bar an earthy, deep and grounding aroma.
100% natural, cruelty-free ingredients
No SLS, parabens, palm oil or synthetic chemicals
Allergens | Limonene (which naturally occurs in essential oils.)
Lather the soap in your hands and apply generously to the face and body. The soap is gentle enough to be used every day. To ensure your bar lasts longer, keep it dry between uses by placing it in a dish that allows air to circulate and water to drain away. Most of the bars share the same base of olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter and castor oil. Highly pigmented natural ingredients are used to add colour and the soap is made in small batches and is left to cure for 4 weeks.
About the designer...
Founded in 2019 by Leonara Manyangadze, TANAKA is a handmade soap brand. Tanaka (n.) [tah-nah-kah] is a Zimbabwean Shona name, meaning we are good, and it is this sentiment that guides their mission. They make bars of soap to benefit skin health and boost wellbeing and, in doing so, rid the world of plastic waste. The bars are made with a unique blend of butters and oils, which results in highly conditioning, moisturising soap that forms a creamy lather and stable bubbles. The formulations are rooted in nature and influenced by the founder’s family and friends—be it a skin concern they might have, a specific ingredient they love or a texture they desire. They use highly pigmented natural ingredients, such as spirulina, French Pink Clay and activated charcoal, to create beautiful hues. They don’t add any artificial colourings and are committed to using only 100% natural, cruelty-free ingredients so you won’t find any SLS, parabens, synthetics or palm oil in the products. Each bar is made, cured and packaged in London with intention and care. The bars are wrapped in semi-transparent glassine paper (non-toxic, plastic-free, compostable) and sealed with a sticker made from FSC-approved paper.
