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.

Ylang ylang Soaps

The Indonesian name for ylang ylang is "Bunga Kenanga" (Cananga Odorata).  I bought the essential oil at serambi botani (always love to go there, still can not believe my campus has turned partly into a mall >:o.

I love the yellow color of ylang ylang so I color the soap yellow using powdered orange peel that I made a couple of weeks ago.

I love it :), I think it's pretty and simple

Jasmine Soaps

Many women request this soap, they are especially fond of the jasmine scent.  I finally found this jasmine fragrance oil.  If you love floral scent you will love this one.  However I can't just use the scent without adding something special.

 I used jasmine water to mix with lye, and at trace I added noni juice and groud dried jasmine flower.  The soap, again, were made with hot peocess and I added olive oil after cooking process completed as superfat.
This is the soap in the mold.

And...cut :)

Fresh cut roses

This soap is inspired by the name of the fragrance.

Again, this is hot process soap, I added coconut milk and cocoa butter at the end of the cooking process. The scent is subtle but definetely there.  The lather is luxurious.  A feminine soap :)

Sabun Bengkuang

Ini mungkin sabun paling populer di Indonesia.  Bengkuang terdiri dari 86-90% air.  Saya membuat sabun ini dengan metode Hot Process.
Pertama Bengkuang diparut dan diambil juice nya. Juice ini lalu dibekukan.

Sebagian dari parutan bengkuang tadi dihaluskan sehingga menjadi bubuk.

Frozen Bengkuang juice + NaOH menjadi lye solution

Sabun ini menggunakan minyak kelapa dengan superfatting minyak zaitun.  Setelah proses masak selesai, bubuk bengkuang dan minyak zaitun diambahkan ke dalam adonan sabun. Setelah agak dingin, fragrance ditambahkan dan sabun dicetak.

Jadinya seperti ini .  Feel free to contact me if you are interested in this :)

Castile Soap

Our new Castile Soap is simply white, without added colour.  It is made with hot process to reduce the curing time.  Cold process Castile Soap should wait between 6 months to 1 year.  By doing hot process, I hope the quality of Castile Soap can be reached in less than 6 months.
It is lightly scented with peppermint essential oil.  Castile soap is so gentle, made with 100 % olive oil, it can be used for face and body, even for baby.
