4.5 oz

Lovingly referred to as our "pork fat" or BODEGA soap, this is the only bar we make that is not vegan (and in a big way). Smells herbaceous with bright citrus and a undertone of latin-inspired spice AKA like a cuban sandwich.

Our soap is made by hand in small batches using the cold-process method. This traditional soap making practice allows us to keep high concentrations of skin-loving nutrients, including glycerine, in each bar. Each ingredients is chosen specifically for its unique therapeutic properties and is sourced directly from nature. All colors come from the earth with minimal processing in the form of herbs, spices, and clays. The unique scent combinations which our products are known for are purely plant-derived, made with only the highest quality pure essential oils. Our soap is gentle, effective, and crafted with care in St. Pete, FL.

We use rendered fat from Bodega on Central, a local restaurant that makes bomb cubans and latin-inspired goodness. Instead of throwing the fat away like most restaurants, it is cleaned and used as a main ingredient in our soap, a process that has been done for centuries. Being a meat-eating culture we believe bringing awareness to using the entire animal and not letting anything go to waste is very important. This soap is amazing for anyone suffering from psoriasis as its helps your skin retain moisture. This soap rivals all of our plant-based bars due to it's different ingredients and is a must try for the adventurous.


Perfect for super dry skin.
