NIUGINI ORGANIC’s pure, unscented soap is the purest organic soap bar in the world.

It consists of nothing but 100% plant-derived Sodium Cocoate.

We make this soap compound is created by boiling just organic coconut oil and lye using a traditional method.


Sodium cocoate is derived from organic coconut oil. It helps clean the skin naturally, making it a popular ingredient in cosmetics, soap, and other beauty products.

To make it, we take the fatty acids naturally present in the coconut oil (the -cocoate part) and boil them with sodium hydroxide (the sodium- part) also known as lye. This chemical process is called saponification and makes sodium cocoate.

Our lye is naturally made by soaking the ash of burnt hardwood in water.

You can have an allergy to sodium cocoate. It may irritate your skin and cause swelling, redness, itching and excessive dryness

If you experience any of these effects, please stop using the soap to avoid any further allergic reactions. 

As a general rule, you should avoid getting sodium cocoate-containing products in your eyes, as they can cause irritation. If you do get the soap in your eyes, flush your eyes gently with water.


Some people report that products containing sodium cocoate are drying to the skin,

This is much like any cleanser that may remove too much oil.

Some manufacturers may incorporate skin-softening ingredients like glycerin into their soap production.

Our soaps consist of 100% sodium cocoate.

We add neither glycerin nor buffering acids to our soaps. 


The Environmental Working Group, the Cosmetics Database and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA all have classified sodium cocoate to be a safe ingredient.

Alternatives to plant-derived sodium cocoate in soap-making include compounds that are:

  • oil-based (palm oil)
  • animal fat-based (sodium tallowate)
  • synthetic (sodium lauryl sulfate)
  • petroleum-based (Linear Alkylbenzene Sulphonate “LAS” and Alkyl Sulphates “AS” commonly found in laundry detergents)
