Ayiti Natural Haitian Soap
Roll over image above to zoom in
Ayiti soaps are made from an all natural blend of Haiti's most precious essential oils, herbs, nuts, and pure hand-extracted Haitian coconut oil. This pure coconut oil is used in all of Ayiti's soaps as a natural agent of Vitamin E and fatty acids which are anti-fungal, anti-oxidizing, and anti-bacterial.
Each soap is hand crafted by a small group of women in Port-au-Prince Haiti. Founder Caroline Sada, a Haitian-American social entrepreneur explained her reason for forming Ayiti in her native Haiti, "What I've learned since my return to Haiti is that Haiti will only evolve through job creation, strategic investments, and export of its most valued assets: crafts, coffee and essential oils. I see Haiti brimming with products that are marketable internationally." Ayiti's soaps don't just create jobs for Haitian women, but the company also focuses on the environment. All soaps are packaged in scrap fabric from a local t-shirt factory which has been lined with scrap aluminum wrapping from a local snack factory.

I purchased the Ayiti vetiver soap for a friend and I am so pleased. The pouch is gorgeous, and the scent of the soap is powerful and intriguing. I feel good giving this as a gift, though I haven't tried it myself, because it's clearly a high quality craft. Thank you.

I ordered the lemongrass and coconut. They both smell wonderful! I plan to try the Amyris and Vetiver, too. The soaps are a nice size and make a wonderful gift. I really liked the pouch they came in. Very nice!!!

I got the Coconut Scrub and couldn't be happier with it! It exfoliates as it cleans, and it feels wonderful on my skin. The pouch it comes in is as attractive as it is useful!
