Soap Viking

 

Ever wonder how the Vikings managed to keep clean? According to sources, early Icelanders actually enjoyed regular ablutions, washing up after a hard week’s work with homemade soaps. The art of soap making is an ancient practice, and Soap Viking aims to follow the traditional soap formulas of days past to produce high quality Icelandic soaps and bath products.
 
 
Soap Viking is a family-run company specialising in entirely handmade soaps and bath products that are light, cleansing and naturally based. The company’s ‘Viking Soap Formula’ utilises Icelandic ingredients whenever possible, including pure Icelandic water, tallow, local canola oil, and fragrant herbs like wild thyme.
 
In addition to handmade soaps, Soap Viking also produces lightly scented bath bombs, bath salts and body scrubs made with fine Icelandic sea salts and essential oils. The ‘Viking Bath Formula’ products will soften and nourish your skin and help you relax, Icelandic style.
 
 
Soap Viking’s products are available in fine gift shops across Iceland, including Eymundsson bookstores, Rammagerðin, Islandia, and the Keflavík International Airport, and Soap Viking’s producer, Sápan ehf., is located in Reykjanesbær only minutes from the airport.
