Using Food to enhance Soap

We came across these Bath & Bloom soaps in Pier One, they look interesting, they also are made in Thailand. I know about using cocoa butter as a moisturizer, and using vegetable oils such as olive or palm oil to make the soap, but am not sold on just adding various food ingredients, ones that are good for the body, at least on the inside, so as to make the soap good for the outside.

This one adds cocoa powder, and also has rice bran oil, palm oil, olive oil and coconut oil.

This one has turmeric root, apparently used for years by Thai women to smooth and brighten their skin, and honey to moisturize the skin.
