Splash Organics Mango Face and Body Soap

January 14, 2009

A fragrant mango face and body soap made from fresh mango pulp and cocoa butter.

**Update**

Splash Organics is now Hickory Ridge Organics. Read more ┬╗

  • Made from Fresh Mango Pulp
  • Suitable for vegans

I discovered this product at a street market on 8th Avenue in New York and was spoilt for choice!

I bought the mango soap to use on my face because the label said it was moisturising. I thought would be ideal for my very sensitive skin but left the skin on my face feeling a little dry and tight afterwards. I decided to use it as hand soap instead and I had no dryness, it was very moisturising and left my hands super soft.

This soap has a beautiful scent. Their face and body bars are available in lots of other scents including: banana, dark chocolate, pure shea, healing clay, papaya, sandalwood, cucumber, pumpkin, sea kelp and seaweed lime. I’ve had this bar for quite a while now and the scent hasn’t faded like some bars of soaps I’ve had.

The texture of the soap was fairly soft, but didn’t go soft and gooey in my soap dish (it must have been hardy to survive a turbulent 7 hour flight back to London in my suitcase). It produced a nice amount of bubbly lather when used and left my hands smelling lovely. I love the fact that each bar has corrugated edges because it makes them look very handmade and natural.

If you live in the UK you can order them from the Splash Organics website. If you are US based you buy their soaps from craft fairs and markets as well as the online store.

Overall a fabulous product. Slightly drying on my face, but very moisturising on my hands.

Summary

  • Pros: Smells beautiful, retains it’s scent
  • Cons: Slightly drying on my face

Ingredients

Certified organic oils of palm, coconut, olive, and grape seed, cocoa and shea butter, mango pulp, mica (natural pigment) and essential oil blends.

    Splash! Organics seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. I bought their soaps this past summer at a street fair in NYC. Now that its winter, there are no more street fairs. I’m trying to buy some more soap but their website appears to have been taken down. Help if you can. Thanks.

    I’m also in search of Splash! I have stocked up on soaps at the Bryant Park Holiday shops the past 2 years, and now I don’t see them listed as a vendor. And the website does seem to have disappeared. Anybody know anything??

    I went to their website – down as you say. I emailed them using the link and heard nothing back. So I’m assuming they’ve gone :( Shame because their soap was lovely!

    I am also looking for Splash! I just bought soaps for the first time in October and became hooked! I even called the number on the card she gave me and it has been disconnected. What a shame! If anyone finds anything out please post!

    Hi everyone! I’ve found that Splash Organics is now Hickory Ridge organics. I’ve added a link at the top of this review to a blog post explaining why this change has taken place.

  • Reiko on January 13, 2010

    Wow! Thank you Gemma for finding the NEW Splash Organics! I’ve been wondering how I would survive without their soaps, esp. this freezing & dried-out winter. Looking forward to the grand opening of Hickory Ridge.

  • gladys on January 13, 2010

    they debut under new name February 2010 but I need soaps now. skin crakced & drying, on verge of bleeding. Copa soaps are great so may have to switch what a shame.. if anyone interested http://www.copasoaps.com has good shea butter soaps although I prefer the splash organics, i’m spoiled.

    I have been in love with Splash Organics since the street fair on the 4th of july 2009. I have made it my business to find her at every street fair I go to. Since the winter I haven’t been able to find her, and I am in desperate need of some chocolate soap. The website I had for her doesn’t seem to be working now. I am happy to see someone else has seen and felt her talent. Please keep me informed with her website info and the next fair she will be. My skin needs her….

    I heard she was opening in February but when in february. if anyone hears anything, pls print it here. i emailed her & she gave me the name of her friend who bought wholesale from her but i didn’t hear back from her fried, maybe the lady sold out. I hope splash organics has a large stock otherwise she will sell out within hours of reopening, everyone has been waiting since last year.

  • Gemma on February 13, 2010

    I keep checking back on the website but it still says coming soon :( I emailed them today and will post back if I hear from them.

  • Karen on February 20, 2010

  • Gemma on February 22, 2010

    I know it’s been a few months, but if you haven’t found her yet, the new store is in St. Augustine, FL. A lovely little shop that I have become completely addicted to. I’ve talked to the owner on the occassions I’ve been there, they’re continuing to work on the website so be patient. I love your comments though, her soaps are wonderful!
