Soapamma is a niche brand that makes soaps through the cold process. This means they don’t have added detergents that damage the skin. And these ones look and smell so good, you’ll want to eat them! Started by Velvet Vibha (unless you are the few people who know her as Vibha BS), Soapamma creates soaps through the cold process, which we’re told, means that the soap bars are a product of combining oils and sodium hydroxide lye. Essentially, they are more skin-friendly as the process only uses the natural oils from the ingredients. And prices start at just INR 100.
We are currently tripping on the Coconut Lemongrass Marble bar that is made from cold-pressed coconut and castor oils. Using titanium dioxide to give it a pretty white colour, the Hangar Swirl method used to make the bars even blend in some green, red and yellow oxides. Thanks to the added lemongrass essential oil, get ready to smell like a basket of lemons this summer!
Citrus Burst is another option that has cold-pressed coconut and castor oils, plus palm, rice bran, and sunflower oils. For the caramel chocolate type of finish, it has got colour from turmeric and cocoa powder. For a fresh fragrance, this bar has cypress, lemongrass, and lemon essential oils. You can also order Neem and Sweet Basil, Activated Charcoal and Tea Tree, Rosemary (this one is extra pretty with pink meeting brown and white), as well as our currently favourite - a multi-coloured edition.
