Natural, Gentle Soaps in Thailand That Are Good for Your Skin and the Environment

Natural soaps in Thailand

Soap seems like one of those things you mindlessly purchase because it is essential. Suckers for soap, however, may disagree, especially if one is particular about scent, ingredients, production, and the values of the company they support.

Soaps run aplenty in the market, but not every soap is the same. There are those that are natural, gentle, eco-friendly, which are good for the skin and the environment alike.

In Bangkok, soap makers that put a primacy on creating eco-conscious, cruelty-free, natural, and organic soaps in small batches are not unheard of. Here are four places where you can get them!

Bangkok Soap Opera

If you're on the hunt for eco-conscious and handmade soap in Bangkok, Soap Opera should be top of your list. It prides itself for its 100% natural and chemical-free soaps and cosmetics, so much so that you can say with certainty that 99% of its products' ingredients are edible. For the sensitive-skinned, you'll be glad to know that Soap Opera's soaps have no synthetic colorants, scents, preservatives, and parabens. These also have expiration dates and are made using traditional methods.

For a delectable soap, check out Soap Opera's Chocolate and Banana Soap, which is made from ripe bananas, chocolate powder, and olive oil. It's perfect for the face and body, as well as dry and sensitive skin. Be warned that you'll absolutely smell like banana bread after using this soap!

The PAÑPURI is a one-stop destination for all things wellness, at once an onsen, spa, and lifestyle store. Vorravit Siripark, who watched his grandmother infuse jasmine petals in water as a young boy, established PAÑPURI when he returned to Bangkok in 2003. Its birth was a reflection of his "lifelong fascination with the power of aroma and the heritage of Thai wellness traditions."

PAÑPURI has luxurious products for the skin, hair, body, hands, as well as fragrances. For a calming, invigorating wash, check out its anti-bacterial, aromatic body and hand washes made of gentle formulations.

We recommend you check out Eternal Sunshine (THB890 for 330 millilitres), which is infused with thyme leaf oil and boasts notes like lime zest, bergamot, mandarin, Thai basic, lemon basil, vetiver, and patchouli. PAÑPURI's soaps are vegan, cruelty-free, and made without more than 2,300 "questionable ingredients" to ensure you're only getting the best stuff for your body.


Natural soaps in Thailand

If you want to experience exclusive products from the award-winning Fah Lanna Spa in Chiang Mai, you must check out its online shop Phulanna to grab these local, handmade goodies. It currently has a line of natural handmade soaps with different variants, namely bamboo charcoal, green seaweed, kaffir lime, lavender, lemongrass, mango, mangosteen, and pineapple! A bar costs THB180.

It also offers other products like ceramics, essential oils, reed diffusers, and massage oils.

Saboo Thailand

Saboo Thailand is another maker of natural, organic handmade soaps for retail and wholesale. This family-owned business prides itself on its soaps that are made in small batches using the cold process, melt and pour process, and hot process. Its products use a base of olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, rice bean oil, sunflower oil, and sweet almond oil, among others, instead of tallow or animal fat.

You'll find soaps in different sizes from Saboo Thailand, as well as herbal soaps, fruit soaps, flower soaps, facial soaps, and other products like lotion, hand cream, sugar and salt scrubs, bath bombs, room sprays, and massage oil. You may check out its soaps on Facebook as well as grocery chain Tops.
