Welcome to Pop Cauldron! We started this company with the goal of creating fun, colorful soaps themed around different aspects of popular culture (movies, music, comics, superheroes...). Many novelty items you'll find are made with cheap materials, so we set out to produce a quality product that's not only safe and lovely on your skin, but makes you smile every time you use it in the shower.
On the home page, you can scroll down to view all of our available soaps, or use the search bar in the top right corner to search for a particular soap you’re looking for.
We crafted our base formula to include organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, organic cocoa butter, organic shea butter, castor oil and a touch of hemp oil. We also use organic Aloe vera juice and organic raw cane sugar in the process for a smooth lather, with lots of big bubbles, that won't dry your skin in the least. With everything included, that adds up to a minimum of 83% organic ingredients in all of our soaps. From there we tweak the recipe to include special ingredients. ALL TRUMPED UP is made with avocado oil and has organic cilantro in the green swirls, and LOVELY DAY is an activated charcoal bar.
We also have a length list of ingredients we do NOT use, for good reason. Our products are always free of animal products, sodium laurel sulfate and derivatives, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, EDTA, DEA, and palm oil.
Why? We believe these ingredients do not belong in your skincare products. SLS + derivatives, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, EDTA, DEA, are all synthetic chemicals that have in one study or another been linked to cancer.
Animal products almost go without saying. Though soap making traces its roots to the (likely) accidental spilling of animal fats on to ashes around a fire, and eventually rendered animals fats combined with pot ash, the use of animal products is no longer necessary or advantageous. All of our soaps are vegan. We previously carried one goat’s milk soap, but as our beliefs evolved, we eliminated the use of goat’s milk and transitioned to 100% vegan ingredients.
The unsustainable production of palm oil in Southeast Asia is resulting in deforestation and environmental degradation. Orangutans, our great ape relatives, are at risk of extinction as a result, in addition to all the other species in this region that are losing their habitats and their lives.

Propylene glycol is a popular additive in a wide variety of products, and known to be a skin irritant, and possibly an immune system disruptor. Gluten is the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, and is a highly inflammatory food that many people are sensitive to on one level or another. It doesn't really have an added benefit to skincare, so we think it is best left out.
We have been featured in a number of online publications & magazines, including Gear Hungry, Gear Patrol, Cool Material, Headlines & Heroes, and The Coolector.
Eventually, we want to expand to other products, so stay tuned for that.
