Using traditional methods and local ingredients, The Soap Company India, based out of Rajasthan, is on a mission to maximise employment among women in rural areas, especially widowed ladies. Made entirely by hand, the organisation uses pure essential oils and plant extracts so your skin is safe from chemicals. Calendula makes sure your skin is hydrated, and of course, fragrances to make you want to eat the bars of soap.
The shea and cocoa butter will leave you feeling smooth and soft, while the rose, strawberry, orange and mango will transport you to a tropical island with the fragrance. If you like it slightly more subtle, try the green tea or white musk options. Priced at just INR 110 to INR 125 per bathing bar, you can buy plenty -- for yourself and to give as gifts.
