An indulgence that one should never really skimp on is taking care of your skin and it is best to start right at the roots. We mean investing in good quality soap (we use this most, afterall!). For specifically that, check out Siloam Soaps, a Kochi-based online brand that is using everyday kitchen ingredients to hand make the most artistic looking soaps on the market!
Seriously, they are super good looking and packed full of goodness. You'll find lace patterns, garnishes like dried lemon peels, or whipped cream and chocolate (yum). Founder Simy, together with her husband make these cold pressed soaps out of their home through recipes of their own. They are all tried and tested on skin, so you know that they're safe and work wonders.
For now there are 12 fragrances available. Our top picks are: Cucumber, Curd & Mint Bar (vegan, has fresh cucumber, yoghurt, peppermint oil, coconut and olive oil) lovely for summers it helps in cooling and fades pigmentation; Classic Goat's Milk (unscented bar, goat's milk, almond and coconut oil) great for babies and sensitive skin types, and Turmeric (goat's milk, organic turmeric, orange and basil) for that natural glow.
Other fragrances include, Carrot, Lavender Coconut Milk, Charcoal, Lemon, Rose, Lemongrass and Vanilla. Prices for a 100gm bar cost between INR 300 to INR 380. To place orders, hit Simy up on Instagram and she will send you a bar or two anywhere in the country.
