Today I'm gonna create some awareness about Natural Handmade Soaps! One of the trusted and most mentioned name is Kindersoaps! I like handcraft, handmade projects and making own natural soaps is one of it! But then I also know that if I make my own soaps, they are gonna be horrible at first! Haha..

So I decided to just try some Kindersoaps! It was actually introduced by a friend who is into natural products as well! I started using / trying the different flavours / types since way back to December last year! Can't believe it's been half a year!

I decided to put my family members into the rat test too as my dad have sensitive skin while my brother recently acquired some slight eczema  skin condition. So I'll just share our experience here!

I don't really have any problem while using chemical infused soaps but thought it is always better to use what's natural! Can't resist soaps with aroma too! <3 So I've tried sooooooo many! Goats Milk / Summer Fizz / Tangy Lavender / Dark Chocolate Mint Patty / Spiced Coffee

My favourite is actually Dark Chocolate Mint Patty n Spiced Coffee! I love the aroma of mint and chocolate from the Dark Chocolate Mint Patty. It makes me feel like I'm in a shower with foamy chocolate and I love the minty feel on my skin! Spiced Coffee is also one of my favourite because of the rough texture  from the Coffee grounds which gives a scrubbing effect. Both can definitely helps with anxiety and stress depression. My choice for an aromatheraphy shower!

My dad firstly tried on Goat's Milk + Honey and Goat's Milk + Patchouli. In the end, he prefer Goat's Milk + Honey because it feels very gentle on the skin and retains moisture as for the latter, Goat's Milk + Patchouli, he did not really like the soap on his inflamed and irritated skin as it causes discomfort, However, it is suppose to be good for healing the wounds and sores. He lathers and uses  Goat's Milk + Honey for hair shampoo as well, that's how much he's in love with it!

My brother firstly uses Goat's Milk + Honey to treat eczema on his skin. It seems to be treating it well and he continued using it for a while until I poisoned him  with the Spiced Coffee which he love a lot too for the scrubbing effect! Haha..

Now I'm going to introduce the many many many manyyyy types of Natural Soaps by Kindersoaps! Do scroll through and you migh find one that is suitable for your skin and t just get addicted to it too! It's gonna be a long scroll of pictures and fact sheet, so be ready for it!


Goats Milk and Honey work together to draw and retain moisture in your skin, while at the same time the entire soap bar will leave your skin gently and effectively cleansed. Although it’s unscented, putting it to my nose makes me think of freshly-baked ginger biscuits.

Safe for baby’s skin.

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair.

Scent: Unscented. However you may smell a hint of ginger biscuits, or at least something sweet that’s just been baked. Very homely.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, fresh goats milk, sodium hydroxide, raw honey, rosemary oleoresin, cocoa powder.


Goats Milk and Patchouli. Patchouli essential oil is known to be excellent for soothing inflamed, irritated skin, aiding in the healing of wounds and sores by promoting cell rejuvenation. In aromatherapy, it is grounding, and helps to relieve anxiety and depression.

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair.

Scent: I can still smell the warm, spicy notes of patchouli on my children’s heads and skin after their showers, and it gradually fades after about 4-5 hours. It’s a homely kind of scent – familiar, soothing, calming.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, fresh goats milk, water, sodium hydroxide, patchouli essential oil, rosemary oleoresin.

Songbird. I wanted to create a soap that conveyed a sense of freedom and the outdoors, so I chose to include virginian cedarwood, cypress, eucalyptus, pine and bergamot essential oils in this blend. I used coloured pearlescent micas for the blues and whites, and powdered wheatgrass for the olive green. It makes me think of how our earth looks like from outer space, actually!

There’s also a back story to this soap. I was inspired by a friend of mine, who lost her husband to a freak road accident about half a year ago. I can’t begin to imagine the sense of loss she must feel, even now. But being the wonderfully spirited young woman she is, it is amazing to see her resolve to continue living her life to the fullest, as she always has.

Janet, this one is for you.

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair.

Scent: Although it’s a fairly elaborate mix of scents (by my standards, anyway), you’ll catch the eucalyptus and pine combo first, but later notice the more woodsy undertones from the rest of the essential oils.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, macadamia nut oil, camellia oil, essential oils (eucalyptus, virginian cedarwood, cypress, pine, naiouli), pearlescent micas (contains iron oxide and titanium dioxide), wheatgrass powder, rosemary oleoresin.

Spiced Coffee. This bar of soap is laden with ground coffee beans for a light scrub in the shower. The combination of ginger, lemongrass and lime essential oils serve not only to lift your spirits out of the doldrums or sluggishness, but also to impart warmth to tired muscles and calm redness on the skin. These three scents are common in asian households – we use them a lot in our cooking because of the wonderful flavours they impart, and also for the many therapeutic, tonifying effects they have for our digestive and immune systems.

I also added fresh yoghurt to the blend to help soften and nourish skin further.
Characteristics and Usage
Use on: body. Might be a little harsh to scrub your face with this, and you certainly wouldn’t like having stray coffee grounds lurking in your luscious locks!

Scent: Ginger’s scent comes through the strongest, but as you continue lathering up in the shower you’ll find the lemongrass and lime gradually making their appearances.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.
Ingredients:
Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, fresh yoghurt, essential oils (ginger, lemongrass, lime), ground coffee, rosemary oleoresin

Teselli. This is the soap which we originally released as a seasonal special for Christmas last year. I formulated this when I was feeling particularly introspective. This explains the name, and as it turns out, the combination of ingredients may be particularly comforting for the skin too.

This soap contains essential oils of frankincense (Boswellia carterii) and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) which are more known to us as two of the three precious gifts that were supposedly offered to the baby Jesus by magi (wise men) in the biblical tale of Jesus’ birth. Earliest recorded usage of these plants in skincare have been found from as far back as 5000 years ago, including for the healing of wounds. Modern day science is currently studying frankincense and myrrh as possible treatments for cancer. This mellow blend of scents is complemented with tamanu oil, which in itself is a remarkable ingredient in skin care, aiding with healing and pain relief when applied in sufficient amounts.

When we first introduced Teselli, we were experimenting with a special cloth wrap for our soap which could possibly see us abandoning plastic shrink wrapping altogether. Isn’t it beautiful?

NOTE: For the time being, Teselli soap bars will not be sold under Wholesale terms, nor be applicable for sales, because they are rather costly to produce.
Characteristics and Usage:
Use on: Face, body, hair.

Scent: Frankincense has a faint, orange and pine-like fragrance which isn’t overpowering at all, while myrrh also has a very understated scent. There is a touch of rose geranium in there too.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, apricot kernel oil, tamanu oil, essential oils (frankincense, myrrh, rose geranium), rosemary oleoresin.


Tangy Lavender. There is no doubt that the bright, sunny scent of sweet orange gifts spirits a gentle lift when inhaled — but did you know that it is also said to support collagen formation in the skin? I haven’t used this soap long enough for me to stake this claim for myself, but I would be most interested to hear of your experience should you decide to try this bar. Does your skin firm up, yet still feel comfortably moisturized?

Hope you’re curious enough to give it a go.
Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair. If you have particularly oily or congested skin on your face you might want to avoid using it for cleansing your face — the cocoa butter content may be a little too rich for you, sorry. But if you’re willing to experiment, do go ahead!

Scent: The sweet orange scent comes across right away as soon as you lather up, followed by the mellower lavender. The scent does not linger long on the skin — just enough to leave you feeling calm and refreshed.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, essential oils (lavender, sweet orange), french red clay, french yellow clay, pearlescent micas, rosemary oleoresin.

Summer Fizz. What you’ll notice right away is the fun, fizzy scent of the soap–I didn’t quite expect it to remind me of lemonade, but it does! Rest assured that all the ingredients used were completely natural though. It’s a blend of sweet orange, rosemary and peppermint essential oils that serve to beat back depression and encourage mental clarity.

This combination is also fantastic for your skin and hair. Rosemary essential oil is a popular ingredient in haircare products as it is reputed to increase circulation to the scalp, thereby promoting healthy hair and stimulating its growth. It is also used to treat acne, dermatitis and eczema. Peppermint and sweet orange essential oils treat the same skin conditions as well as to reduce inflammation and itchiness.

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair.

Scent: Reminiscent of fizzy lemonades. Really good fun.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, essential oils (rosemary, sweet orange, peppermint), french red clay, french yellow clay, rosemary oleoresin.



Clarity. In skin care, eucalyptus essential oil is anti-bacterial and can help clear up those pesky pimples a little quicker by gradually treating congested skin. This quality also enables it to encourage healing of minor wounds and ulcers. To complement the clarifying properties of this essential oil in the soap, I added activated carbon and french green clay to gently absorb excess sebum from your skin as you shower.

The scent of eucalyptus is unmistakable — fresh and sharp. It makes you want to stretch out your arms as far as you possibly can, look skywards and inhale deeply. Perhaps this is why it is said to clear those cobwebs in your head and promote focused thought. People who are prone to colds and flus would also value its ability to clear blocked noses when inhaled, as it reduces the swelling of mucus membranes.

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair. Particularly good for those with oily or congested skin that is prone to breakouts.

Scent: Wonderfully refreshing, and will stay with you for a while after your shower. To help clear up a stuffy or runny nose, it is best to lather up under water that is as warm as you can comfortably tolerate.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, jojoba oil, eucalyptus essential oil, french green clay, activated carbon, rosemary oleoresin.



Dark Chocolate Mint Patty. Contains generous lashings of cocoa butter and anti-oxidant rich cocoa powder that will leave you with soft, silky-smooth skin after each shower. The scent of peppermint clears the mind and is cheery. While the soap doesn’t smell strongly of chocolate, you still might just catch a whiff of the cocoa butter while showering. (Think After Eight mints!)

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair. If you have particularly oily or congested skin on your face you might want to avoid using it for cleansing your face — the cocoa butter content may be a little too rich for you, sorry. But if you’re willing to experiment, do go ahead!

Scent: Unscented, but has a light aroma of cocoa butter that doesn’t linger after your bath.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, cocoa powder, rosemary oleoresin.
Dreamtime. My intention is to help soothe the inflammation, albeit perhaps only temporarily because of the vast number of underlying causes to your skin condition. Guess what—mine behaves like this occasionally as well. But the sophisticated blend of scents of the essential oils is quite a treat in itself.

Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair.

Scent: Has a rather grown-up bouquet of scents, owing to the essential oils I used – lavender, roman chamomile, geranium, rosemary, tea tree, and patchouli to ground them all. I personally find it quite indulgent to use in the shower! The scent lingers for a short while on your skin, but my oh my the bathroom will smell heavenly!

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

Ingredients:
Palm oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, essential oils (geranium, roman chamomile, lavender, rosemary, tea tree, patchouli), french pink clay, rosemary oleoresin.
