MY EXPERIENCE:

I am more of a soap person & an ardent lover of handmade soaps to be specific(not the commercial synthetic/chemical laden ones). The only times I use a shower gel is when I travel.

I recently came across a lovely brand CHENNAI SOAP COMPANY that exclusively makes handmade cold processed soaps. When I started interacting with the maker, Sharmeen, her passion for soap making was crystal clear. She calls it her best stress buster😃. It’s a blessing when someone’s profession is their passion. It is a win-win for the maker who indulges in her craft with love & the consumer as the outcome will be desirable💗.

Following is my take on their handmade Neem & Turmeric cold processed soap…

Packaging: It comes in a cloth bag with a classy black tag that has all details of the soap tied with a golden thread. Inside is the soap covered in a gift wrap (instead of a plastic cover that I expected). Brownie points to this luxurious ecofriendly packaging.

Texture: It has soft, creamy and waxy, ready to melt yummy texture. The kind I thoroughly enjoy using.

Color & Fragrance: It is pale greenish yellow in color with a subtle herbal fragrance along with pleasant undertones of oils & butters. Both color & fragrance are from ingredients.

Ingredients analysis: Chennai soap company claims to use ingredients that are either organically sourced or from wild harvest. It seems believable. The ingredients comprise of nourishing oils from coconut, Sesame, castor & neem along with raw neem & wild turmeric powders that are highly beneficial to skin. The soap is free of any synthetic chemicals, added color or fragrance👌

Efficiency: This cold processed soap is as raw as it can be & resembles a lovely piece of cake 😋. I use it on wet skin directly. It doesn’t lather like a commercial chemical laden soap. I enjoy the subtle milky foam it generates that is soothing & nourishing. The grains give a very mild everyday exfoliation. This 100g soap , when used everyday as a body cleanser, will last for 15-20 days approx(depending on the water). This is the case with most handmade cold processed soaps who don’t compromise on the quality. So, am ok with this part.

As I have dry body skin, I was initially sceptical about the key ingredients namely Neem & turmeric, as to if they will dry out my already parched skin but as the soaps have been made with nourishing oils, it wasn’t drying at all. Infact I skipped my moisturiser to check the after effects and observed that it balanced the sebum without drying & maintained the suppleness for hours. Hence, it should work for all skin types in summer.  Im not sure about winters though. Also, if U are one with very dry skin & expect extra moisturisation from Ur soap, U can choose the variant accordingly. Planning to get my hands on their rose soaps😍

It also helped in keeping the skin clear from any bacne & itching(I usually get this in summers) and helps in keeping body odour at bay(this doesn’t mean U can skip Ur deo).

Pros:

  • synthetic free
  • organic, wild harvested ingredients
  • nourishing, balancing, soothing
  • ecofriendly packaging
  • Handmade & cold processed
  • cruelty free

Cons: 

  • availability

My Verdict: I have used many high end soaps & there are very few soaps in the market with this quality. Chennai Soap Company’s creations are worth it & a must try!
