Traditional Spices Soap

Traditional Spices. Formulated with a carefully portioned ratio of organic and wildcrafted base oils and 100% pure essential oils, blended with extremely pristine clays and herbal extractions. Handmade with intent to make the finest bar of soap in the world, we’ve made no compromise to that end.


We used to call this "The Man Bar." We named it that because it was Kim's best shot at his Great Grandfather's Old Spice aftershave. Little did we know that the ladies love it too. So now we have the gender-neutral name "Traditional Spices."

Like all of our soaps, this one is handmade by Alex or Kim. We shoot for the stars with intent to make the finest bar of soap in the world, and we've made no compromise to that end. It all comes together through craftsmanship and a whole bunch of care to form a truly extraordinary bar of soap. Gently cleansing, deeply moisturizing, richly lathering.

    At Luminance Skincare, using safe, high-quality ingredients is very important. We believe every constituent of a skincare product should be either organic or wildcrafted. Ours are. We believe that ingredients considered separately should all be what skin readily considers a nutrient source and non-threatening. Ours are. Formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than assembling a list of good ingredients, it’s understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios. We always do.

    Hand Washing

    Washing your hands with real soap is perhaps the best way to rid your hands and body of germs. This is why doctors always make such a ritual of washing their hands before seeing patients and especially before surgery.

    Benefits Of Key Ingredients

    Coconut Oil

    This is a versatile natural oil extracted from the meat of mature coconuts. It's widely used in skincare for its moisturizing and potential therapeutic properties. Let's analyze the components and potential benefits of coconut oil for human facial skin:

    Fatty Acids:

    1. Lauric Acid: Coconut oil is particularly high in lauric acid, a type of saturated fatty acid. Lauric acid has antimicrobial properties and can help protect the skin from certain pathogens.
    2. Caprylic and Capric Acid: These medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil contribute to its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.


    Coconut oil contains trace amounts of vitamin E, which contributes to its antioxidant properties.

    Benefits for Human Facial Skin:

    1. Moisturization and Hydration: Coconut oil's fatty acids provide deep moisturization, helping to soften and nourish the skin. It forms a protective barrier that prevents moisture loss.
    2. Antimicrobial Properties: Lauric acid and other fatty acids in coconut oil possess antimicrobial properties, which can be beneficial for preventing and treating certain skin infections and conditions.
    3. Anti-Inflammatory: The caprylic and capric acids in coconut oil have anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm irritated or inflamed skin.
    4. Makeup Removal: Coconut oil can be used as a natural makeup remover, effectively breaking down makeup and impurities without harsh chemicals.
    5. Wound Healing: The moisturizing and antimicrobial properties of coconut oil can contribute to wound healing and reducing the risk of infection.
    6. Hair and Scalp Benefits: Coconut oil is often used for hair and scalp care due to its ability to moisturize and strengthen hair, and soothe dry scalps.
    7. Skin Barrier Support: Coconut oil's fatty acids contribute to maintaining the skin's natural barrier, protecting against environmental stressors.
    8. Gentle Exfoliation: When combined with sugar or salt, coconut oil can be used for gentle exfoliation, helping to remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture.
    9. Lip Care: Coconut oil can be applied to the lips to provide hydration and prevent chapping.

    My husband’s favorite soap

    My husband loves the soap so much. I bought him a year’s supply. It has a fresh clean smell with pure ingredients. We have been buying it for years. Thank you


    Might be my favorite scent of the Luminance soaps. A subtle earthy, masculine scent. Very pleasant, not overbearing. It has the characteristic Luminance high-lather. Just an all-around high quality soap. Luminance soaps is my go-to gift for people.

    Great Soap

    Leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. The all natural soap is incredibly high in quality.

    WONDERFUL Fragrance!!

    This is my FAVORITE "flavor" of soap and when I shared a bar with my daughter and son-in-law, it's now become their favorite, also! (With the four bars in a recent order being theirs for Christmas ;) ) I love having a soap with pure, healthy ingredients that also holds its amazing scent and lathers beautifully!

    Just love this soap. My whole bathroom smells so good. No need for deodorizers or floral spritzers. AND - it leathers up nicely, is gently on my skin. I could not be happier.

    Mmm! Spice heaven

    The traditional spice bar is the best I’ve ever come across. I even rub some of the dry bar on the edge of my pillow.

    Rad soap!

    Smells SO good, beautiful texture

    I buy this for my husband for shaving his face and we both love it. Apparently it lathers beautifully and he gets an incredibly smooth shave. Plus, the bar form makes it super easy to take on vacations. I love it because it makes him smell absolutely amazing - clean and spicy but not overpowering or chemically. Please don’t ever stop making this soap!

    Oh my gosh, this scent is amazing

    I've tried several of the soap scents and this is by far my favorite. They all produce a wonderful, silky, creamy, lather that cleans well (took care of bike chain oil super quickly) but is also gentle and isn't drying. But the traditional spices scent is something special - sensuous and seductive, masculine, but in a way that I (a woman) absolutely love. Please keep making!

    Lovely scent and gentle on skin

    I bought this after trying the tiny soaps to see which one I liked the best. The spices was my favorite and I'm very pleased with the full-sized version. It's so gently on my skin and the scent is invigorating. I feel like I visited a soap and candle shop after my shower!
