Our Mission

Create new bathing experiences and quality products that offer unique fragrances and moisturizing benefits to all consumers.

Our Motto

“Wash Away the Day.” This motto represents the solution to the cumulative effects of stress and aggravation that need washing away through the bathing experience - with Costa Californica bar soaps.

Our Goals

Create full time employment and jobs for others with this brand and its unique products, while bringing a fragrant vegan bar soap to the market.

The Planet

We care about the current state of plastic pollution in the oceans and open spaces of our planet. Therefore, we are making a small effort to contribute to their preservation by using bar soaps over bottled. While we aren’t here to judge or criticize, we understand that it will take a while to get completely off plastic. For this reason, we will continue to offer some products in plastic, until we can completely transition to our aluminum alternative. We see the need and for this and hope to raise the bar!
