Producing handmade soap, body butter, scrub, and balm with less chemicals but beneficial is our goal. We use simple high quality ingredients : Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Sunflower Oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Beeswax, and Herbs. We do use synthetic chemicals as they are necessary such as preservative in cream/lotion, emulsifier, micas and oxides as skin safe colorants, fragrance oil. All of our products are carefully crafted. Mengapa saya membuat sabun? Ada banyak alasan, yang utama kekaguman saya atas reaksi dari bahan2 sederhana yaitu minyak ditambah Sodium Hydroxide menghasilkan sesuatu yang sangat berbeda, yaitu sabun. Kreativitas tanpa batas menjadikan proses membuat sabun sangat menarik. Bahan2 alam mengagumkan di Indonesia membuat saya percaya negeri ini indah.

Soaps with Clays

I used french green clay, red morrocan clay and bentonite.  I love this soap because it's not scratchy al all. Scented with Litsea, Fennel and Nutmeg Essential Oil

Cornsilk in soap

It is an interesting experiment using cornsilk for soaps.  I added cornsilk to the lye solution and it turned the water into clear yellow.
There were still some fibers left undissolved, so I strained it before pouring into the oils.

The finished soap still has the very pale yellow color. I find it quite nice.
