I visited there as the place was in the tour program, which aimed obviously at the tourists in shopaholic mood. I love bath products and it was interested to try different scent. I purchased pikake soap as I just wanted something Hawaiian. The soap smells great and these can be good souveniors. I do not think I would purposelt go... More

Lots of soap to choose from and every one of them smells great. I'm sure there's a scent for everyone. I loved all the stamps you can use to personalize your soap. It's a great bath soap and I personally loved the blueberry.

We stopped by at the North Shore Soap Factory on the way back from the USS Arizona tour. They had lots of strange scented soaps. The manufacturing of the soap was visible through the glass partitions. Worth the drive

Kids enjoyed seeing soap being made and stamping the bars for future gifts. But a tad pricy and off the path. Regardless glad we did take the time.

It's not much to look at but it definitely represents Hawaii. It's a hole in the wall but it has great values inside. Enjoyed it!

If you're a fan of re-invented industrial spaces and the pioneering entrepreneurs that support them, get to the Historic Waialua Sugar Mill! The North Shore Soap Factory and Hawaiian Bath and Body are housed in the Bagasse Bin (they'll be happy to let you know what that is). Wished we had come home with more than the bottle of Kukui...

Cute little soap factory tucked away in Waialua if you visit the north shore of Oahu. They have a sink at the back of the store to try the different soaps and scrubs. If the owner is around, he's very friendly and likes to talk about his business and the building he is in. Definitely a historical area and the... More

NSSF is located at the old Waialua Sugar Mill on the North Shore. It can be a little difficult to find if you're not familiar with the area but it's well worth the search. Once in the parking lot, follow the little painted rubber duckies to the entrance. Inside you'll find a wonderful selection of locally made soaps and lotions,... More

This was heaven for a girl like me who loves bar soap and lotions. The building is an old sugar mill. Very cool. We got to see them make the soap. The ladies there were very helpful and informative. It happened to be Earth day when we were there and purchased unboxed soaps for 20% off. What a deal! I,... More
