Relishing intervals with dreamy soaks
In between getting up in the morning and taking life head on, these hand-crafted bath products invite us to relish the interval
To date, most Filipinos rarely have time to savor a bath. Routine dictates us to go quickly in and out of the shower to make it to whatever engagement we have scheduled. Slowly, and with good reason, Soak Artisan Soap is changing this mindset.
Made with natural ingredients such as olive oil, crueltyfree tussah silk, milk, honey, and oats, their body products resemble classic desserts and evoke gestural abstractions or reflections inspired by the sea.
Each hand-cut and hand-poured soap undergoes the traditional cold-process method, a technique used centuries ago by skilled soap masters for royal houses in Europe. Sometimes, it comes in a dream and we allow it to unravel,” says Leo Cruz, owner of Soak Artisan Soap, on how they conceptualize the next pieces.
Ultimately, their bath and body indulgences urge us to take a pause and breathe in the moving and thoughtful silence—because it’s perfectly okay to.
