Tamanohada, a Japanese company based in Tokyo, began making soap in 1892. Tamanohada’s “Welcome Soap" is made using a wooden mold called kashigata traditionally used for creating sweets. This soap portrays the tai fish, a snapper native to the western Pacific Ocean. In Japanese culture, this fish signifies good fortune and great prosperity, making this soap a welcome bath accessory or gift for any household.
The Welcome Soap is available in three scents: muscovado sugar, pomegranate, and lily blossom. Made with certified sustainable palm oil, these soaps are not only items of necessity created using sound environmental practices, but are also physical and visual joys to hold and behold. Palm oil is low in acidity and gentle on skin.
