Brainchild of Akitoli from Nagaland, The Angry Mother Soap Co churns out handcrafted bath & body products that are oozing with natural goodness. The soaps come wrapped in 100% eco-friendly packaging, which is made in house and has illustratrations by a local artist to depict the different tribal women of Nagaland.
Wondering what’s the story behind the name? Akitoli is hugely inspired by her strong, self-sufficient mother, who insisted women should work and be independent. She took that message, dipped it in humour and made it into her brand name. The Angry Mother Co makes soaps that are completely free of chemicals like parabens, surfactants, triclosan, petrochemicals, preservatives and sulfates. There are about 22 different kinds of handmade soaps that are made using natural ingredients like homegrown tomatoes, fresh cow’s milk, hemp, french red clay, oats, cold-pressed edible oils and essential oils. The brand also offers shampoo bars, lip balms, perfumes, hair oils, massage oils, body butter, and more, which are also entirely natural.
Pigmentation problem? Try their papaya mandarin soap. Papaya, as we already know, is super beneficial in removing dead skin cells, reducing scars and black spots. The orange patchouli soap is very effective in keeping acne at bay without over-drying your skin. It also helps promote production of collagen and increases blood flow to the skin.
Akitoli also makes pain relief balms infused with local chilli like Rajamircha that work well on pains and aches along with her other hemp-infused balms and oils. All the products are organic certified by agencies like USDA and India Organic. Best part? Price ranges from INR 120 - INR 150. So, unlike splurging on Forest Essentials, this brand’s soap won't make your mother angry.
