Free of bleach & dyes - the color you see is the color of the beautiful oils combined.  Before the oils are saponified, you literally can eat (and be healthy!) any of these fabulous ingredients.

Discover the amazing properties found in the oils used in your favorite Legacy Soapworks soap.

Shown in the order of how much is used in our recipe.


Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A staple in soap making history and gentle enough for a baby's skin.

High in Oleic acid, when added to soap, it will condition and soften your skin.

Used by ancient Egyptians, it's packed with antioxidants and has been called upon to help improve poor skin conditions throughout time.


Coconut Oil

Where to begin?  Coconut oil is so incredible for skin, it is well known as a great moisturizer!  When added to soap, coconut oil helps to firm up your skin, exfoliate, and help fight acne.  

In Brazil they heavily use coconut oil-based products to help keep acne at bay. 

In soap, using too much coconut oil can actually begin to remove the natural oils we desire.  Legacy Soapworks has done the work to achieve the fine balance of just the right amount of coconut oil to imbue your skin with the maximum benefits this amazing oil has to offer.



Lard adds tremendous value to a bar of soap’s hardness which allows a bar to last longer.

It does more than that though, it also produces a creamy lather and moisturizes nicely.




Palm Oil

Used in our vegan bars instead of lard, palm oil also contributes to a hard bar of soap.

Palm oil adds to a rich creamy lather.

Definitely a relaxing environment when your skin is healthy, nourished, and ready for life.


Canola Oil

Canola oil offers a creamy lather while conditioning skin.

Naturally contains Vitamin E, omega 3, and omega 6 fatty acids.

Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant you'll want to help protect your skin from free radicals.

Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids combat premature aging.

A great oil to have, it moisturizes as it soothes dry irritated skin.


Castor Oil

A must!  When used in small amounts, castor oil provides a rich, creamy lather that traditional soap makers pledge allegiance to. 

A great property of castor oil is that it’s a humectant. A humectant attracts moisture to your skin, what a great find! 



Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed oil is a lightweight carrier oil - which means it’s easily absorbed by the skin and is lightweight in the process.  

This means your skin is quick to absorb this delicious oil as it helps to deliver the deeper moisturizing oils so you can have that baby soft feel everyone longs to touch.


Neem Oil

If you’ve ever smelled straight neem oil, you’ll always remember it!  Neem oil has a strong fragrance that some find overbearing.  We have learned how to reap the intense benefits it provides without the over-powering fragrance it can be known for.

A natural insect repellant, neem oil also has fantastic antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. It’s great for conditioning and is known to help treat dandruff and even athlete’s foot. 


Sesame Seed Oil

Sesame seed oil is a luxurious oil that brings silky conditioning properties to a bar of soap and helps stabilize lather.

It is also known for helping with eczema and psoriasis since it is high in antioxidants and vitamins.

Great for softening you skin, your lips, even your hair. 



Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil has high in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, perfect for conditioning your skin.

With a silky feel, it quickly absorbs into your skin leaving a light moisturized feel.

A rejuvenating oil with natural love from the sun, straight to your skin.
