About Us

2000
Our company started in beautiful Keaau, Hawaii (near Hilo), where we made our first batches of handmade soap and sold them in a small gift store. As requests for our products increased, Lauri quit the gift store and devoted her time to making Spa Quality Bath and Body products which are still sold throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

We have expanded and opened a studio-workshop in Southern California. Now called Palm Trees & Pineapples, we continue to make our Hawaiian style hand-crafted soap, bath and body products and now candles. We hope you’ll love using our products as much as we love making them. Thanks for supporting small businesses!
