Stone Massage by Lather Spa at THE MODERN Honolulu

Local + Leading Products

At THE MODERN HONOLULU, our commitment to the organic, local and sustainable – to bringing only the best to our clients – infuses every detail.

You won’t be surprised, then, to learn that the products featured in LATHER Spa at THE MODERN HONOLULU are among the purest and most exclusive in the world.

From soap to LATHER, Pasadena-based beauty entrepreneur Emilie Davidson Hoyt turned a small soap company into a brand that bathes in contentment with millions of people every day and is featured in our Honolulu spa.  What started in 1999 as a small line of pure olive oil-based soaps grew into a collection of exfoliating body scrubs, hydrating body crèmes, soothing bath gels, and aromatherapy candles.

LATHER continues to stand apart from other companies with its dedication to finding and cultivating only the finest ingredients using pure essential oils, vitamins, and antioxidants, and rare fruits and herbs – and never using synthetic fragrances or colors. Lather also uses organic ingredients and all products are free of parabens and sulfate cleansing agents.

LATHER may go to the ends of the earth to source ingredients, but the packaging is kept clean and simple. We believe that what goes IN the bottle remains more important than what goes ON it. Our sample packs and shopping bags are all comprised of 100% post-consumer recycled materials. Additionally, customers can return empty LATHER containers to our stores to receive 10% off their next purchase.

In addition, we maintain our commitment to cruelty-free beauty. LATHER does not test our products on animals, nor will we work with labs that do.

In addition, LATHER products are complemented in our spa treatments by other lines as well.  

We select our spa products for their embodiment of kupuna (knowledge passed down from the elders) and mana (the earth’s spirit and power). Our products are thus inspired by age-old traditions and formulas that coax out the natural healing powers of botanicals. Their ingredients are hand-harvested; crafted in small batches; sustainably produced; free of chemicals and additives.

THE MODERN HONOLULU also features Ola products by Hawaiian Body Products, family-owned-and-operated on Hawaii’s Big Island. Ola products exude the family’s passion for Hawaiian-grown essentials, creating a tropical, organic line-up that includes Passion Fruit Tropical Body Scrub and Massage Oil.

LATHER and Ola products are available for purchase at THE MODERN HONOLULU.
