Tanaka Soaps | Leonara
My name is Leonara and I’m the founder of TANAKA Soaps, a London-based company making handmade natural soaps using all natural, plant-based ingredients.
The name Tanaka comes from Zimbabwe (where I was born) and translates to ‘we are good’. It’s used as an expression to symbolise beauty or a state of gratitude. My main motivation is sharing ways through which people can be kind and gentle to themselves and in turn, the people around them and the environment.
TANAKA Soaps are handcrafted from scratch using the traditional cold process method and left to cure for 4 – 6 weeks. Each bar is specially formulated with key ingredients intended to calm, soothe and heal.
