Our formulations are rooted in nature and influenced by our founder’s family and friends—be it a skin concern they might have, a specific ingredient they love or a texture they desire. Our 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 collection is structured by colour—not just as a means to differentiate between bars, but to celebrate nature’s palette. We use highly pigmented natural ingredients, such as spirulina, French Pink Clay and activated charcoal, to create beautiful hues. We don’t add any artificial colourings. At TANAKA, we’re committed to using only 100% natural, cruelty-free ingredients so you won’t find any SLS, parabens, synthetics or palm oil in our products.
Each bar is made, cured and packaged in St Leonard's on Sea with intention and care. Our soap is made in small batches using the cold-processed method and is left to cure for 4 weeks, prior to dispatch. Our bars are wrapped in semi-transparent glassine paper (non-toxic, plastic-free, compostable) and sealed with a sticker made from FSC-approved paper.
Whether you’re swapping liquid hand wash in the kitchen or trading shower gel for a nourishing body bar, TANAKA soap bars are multi-purpose and kind to all skin types.
