Introducing Caribbean Trading Company’s Artisan Soaps and Soy Candles

Here at Caribbean Trading Company, the Crew is always working hard to source authentic Caribbean gifts and souvenirs.  As such, over the last year or so, the crew has been working with artisans to develop a line of soaps and candles (with more to come soon!).  After hundreds of samples, and ‘scenting parties’ among the Crew, we finalized our choices for the best fragrances Puerto Rico and the Caribbean have to offer.  We searched long and hard to work with someone that offered a superior quality product with fragrances that felt authentic and true to the Caribbean.  Now available for purchase in our two retail stores and online!

Caribbean Trading Company Mango/Shea Butter Soaps CTCSOAP

  • Mango Mandarin: A sparkling fruity citrus tropical type with a citrus tangerine mandarin top note and fruity-pulp, melon middle note and sweet musky fruity base note.
  • Caribbean Rain: Tropical rains bring fresh exotic flowers into bloom while sending their sweet intoxicating aroma through the islands to arise the senses.  The original fragrance worn by surfers in the 60’s. Sophisticated classic.
  • Cancion del Coqui:   A tropical, not too sweet Jasmine with clean under notes. Unusual and exciting!

  • El Yunque Mist:  A tropical breeze of sweet orange flower, lemony citrus, fresh lavender and powdery musk.
  • Pina Colada: – Pineapple and Coconut with sweet notes of the tropics are highlights of our twist on this classic.
