The Mushroom Bar


Your skin is your body’s largest organ. When we bathe, we exfoliate to remove toxins that your body excretes throughout the day. The Mushrooms Bar is the perfect aid for this ritual.

The famous chaga mushroom grows on birch trees throughout the northern hemisphere. Chaga helps these trees stay healthy and vibrant—it produces comparable benefits for our skin too. One of the most potent sources of melanin, it contains a number of important minerals, such as potassium and calcium.

The nutrient-dense chaga has an innate ability to restore elasticity to the skin. It incites the restoration and regeneration of skin cells, making skin appear refreshed and younger. Its unique form of betulinic acid heals, moisturises and tones dry, irritated and inflamed skin, leaving it soft, supple and smooth.

Made, cured and packaged in London with intention and care. Each bar is hand cut and entirely unique. Most of our bars share the same base of olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter and castor oil. We use highly pigmented natural ingredients to add colour to our bars. Our soap is made in small batches and is left to cure for 4 weeks.

• 100% natural, cruelty-free ingredients
• No SLS, parabens, palm oil or synthetic chemicals

Our cold-processed method of production preserves the goodness of our natural ingredients. To ensure your bar lasts longer, keep it dry between uses by placing it in a dish that allows air to circulate and water to drain away.

How to Use:

  • Lather the soap in your hands.
  • Apply generously to the face and body.
  • The soap is gentle enough to be used every day.

Founded in 2019 by Leonara Manyangadze, TANAKA is a handmade soap brand. Tanaka (n.) [tah-nah-kah] is a Zimbabwean Shona name, meaning we are good, and it is this sentiment that guides our mission. We make bars of soap to benefit skin health and boost wellbeing and, in doing so, rid the world of plastic waste.

“I never thought my weekend hobby would become my business,” Leonara explains. “I started making soap because I was becoming more mindful of my overall health—this extended to what I put on my skin. My earliest childhood memory is spending time making what I truly believed to be healing tinctures from the herbs and flowers in my garden. It is as though TANAKA has evolved from my favourite childhood pastime—I’m still playing and experimenting with natural ingredients, creating formulations that stimulate our senses and nourish our skin.”

Our formulations are rooted in nature and influenced by our founder’s family and friends—be it a skin concern they might have, a specific ingredient they love or a texture they desire. Our bars are made with a unique blend of butters and oils, which results in highly conditioning, moisturising soap that forms a creamy lather and stable bubbles. The collection is structured by colour—not just as a means to differentiate between bars, but to celebrate nature’s palette. We use highly pigmented natural ingredients, such as spirulina, French Pink Clay and activated charcoal, to create beautiful hues. We don’t add any artificial colourings. At TANAKA, we’re committed to using only 100% natural, cruelty-free ingredients so you won’t find any SLS, parabens, synthetics or palm oil in our products.

Each bar is made, cured and packaged in London with intention and care. Our soap is made in small batches using the cold-processed method and is left to cure for 6 weeks, prior to dispatch. Our bars are wrapped in semi-transparent glassine paper (non-toxic, plastic-free, compostable) and sealed with a sticker made from FSC-approved paper.

Whether you’re swapping liquid handwash in the kitchen or trading shower gel for a nourishing body bar, TANAKA’s eight soap bars are multi-purpose and kind to all skin types.
