Salt­wa­ter Ate­lier: Hand­made bar soaps

Herworld (Singapore) - - TO KNOW -

The year-old brand started as founder Miya Chong’s pet project. The 27-yearold had made some soap and posted pic­tures of it on so­cial me­dia. Af­ter get­ting re­quests to sell the prod­ucts, she be­gan mak­ing it in small batches of 12-24 bars at a time.

The soaps are made with co­conut oil and glyc­er­ine, and are 100 per cent ve­gan. They’re free of sodium lau­ryl sul­phate, parabens and ph­tha­lates. Ex­pect scents like sweet kaf­fir lime and rose­wood, as well as in­gre­di­ents such as ac­ti­vated char­coal, French rose clay, apri­cot ker­nel and mango but­ter. Mak­ing them in small quan­ti­ties keeps things fresh.

The se­lec­tion of prod­ucts is not fixed. “De­pend­ing on their pop­u­lar­ity, some de­signs may be dis­con­tin­ued, and new ones may be in­tro­duced,” says Chong. $5.80-$12 a bar. Web­site: www.salt­wa­t­er­ate­lier. com; In­sta­gram: @salt­wa­t­er­ate­lier
