Y'all better not sleep on Coconut Oil! There is a reason it is the most prominent ingredient in all of our soaps. ⁠

Whether you are currently using generic soaps or body wash, there is a high chance you are stripping your skin of vital oils that keep your body feeling moisturized. Not only does Coconut Oil have powerful anti-bacterial properties, it also has the ability to improve the barrier layer of the skin. ⁠

It's natural ingredients like these that make all of the difference with your skincare regimen. Our formula is especially designed to leave more oils on the skin to maximize the hydrating effect. ⁠

Prioritize your skincare today by purchasing one of our luxury bar soaps (! ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠

We are all indebted to Martin Luther King, Jr. for his inspiring activism to transform the United States into a Nation that did not only work for people of European descent. ⁠

As we commemorate his incredible leadership, it is easy to forget that this was not necessarily a mantle he intended to carry. Before he was a civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. was simply a husband and father that desired a better future for his family and community. He was like so many of us in that regard. ⁠

His humanity and everyday reality informed his ethos and propelled him to lead one of the most critical movements in the history of our country. His legacy is evidence that we all have something special in us to make a difference and to make an impact for good in our world. Look around you. Where do you see lack? Where do you see injustice? Don't just stand there. Take up your mantle and do something about it.⁠

Happy MLK Day to you all from MV Soaps. ⁠

In Black Power,⁠

Akin Walker, Founder & CEO of MV Soaps⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠

In 2021, we dared to dream and stepped out in faith. In 2022, we are more confident than ever that with the support of this community, we are poised to reshape the perception of personal care for Black men and leave an indelible mark on the ongoing movement to prioritize Black mental wellness. ⁠

We could not be more excited about our future together - with you. ⁠

From the MV Soaps family to yours, Happy New Year 🍾⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠


Harsh chemicals in soap are nothing to be trifled with. Many generic and even some natural soaps scented with fragrance oils contain chemicals like parabens that can disrupt hormones in the body and even cause cancer.

Our scented soaps use fragrances that are entirely parabens free and we only use natural oils in our formula so that you can feel good about what you are putting on your skin.

These products are handcrafted with the ultimate care in small batches.

ORDER today while inventory lasts! (⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠

Are you tired of generic bar soaps that leave your skin feeling dehydrated? ⁠

The average bar soap you find at the grocery store contains harsh chemicals that strip your skin of oils. At MV Soaps we use natural ingredients like Coconut Oil and Shea butter that help the skin to retain moisture. ⁠

Our formula is especially designed to leave more oils on the skin to maximize the hydrating effect. ⁠

SHOP on our store today and put some respect on your skin! ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠


Fam, it's been a year full of ups and downs but I'm so grateful to each and every one of you who have supported this brand by purchasing our products or have engaged with us on these internets to support our movement to transform lives.

These last few weeks of the year I've been especially contemplative as I think about all that I have to be thankful for and what I need to keep doing in order to realize our audacious mission. There's so much good in store for y'all in the New Year. Thanks for rocking with us. Have a safe and merry Holiday Season.
