Our products have surprisingly long shelf life for natural Products but it still has a limitation️
Long shelflife in our products doesn’t come from the usage of preservation ingredients
There are some simple secrets that help us keep our formulas free from stabilisers &
Safe for you to use in Beauty Routine:
Secret #1. We use formulas that are 100% water FREE. We like to mix herbal powders, clays, local vegetable oils to create our products. Such a mix doesn’t need a preservative. But anyway can have shelflife 3-6 month long
Secret #2. Such products as Soap has natural alkaline PH 8-10. Which makes it self-preserved formula. Even we enrich our soaps with fruit juices or fresh milk, there is no risk of growing mould or fungi.
️But keep in mind all fresh ingredients are thoroughly mixed into the product. We never use fresh herbs or flowers to decorate the soap.
Secret #3. Cosmetic products that have eater or hydrosol as an ingredient we recommend to keep in the fridge. Low temperature can help prolong shelflife even up to 2 months.

How to be sure that you bring just enough hydration to all the skin levels?

1. Hydrosol or Flower Water. This is very easy to apply and bring daily in a bag. Hydrosol is a water-based extract of a chosen herb or flower. It comes in liquid form, as a rule in a spray bottle. Hydrosol is a perfect moisturising spray that has an additional function of a toner. It is advised to be used daily after you have washed your face, but you can freely enjoy it 3-5 times a day, whenever you need refreshment during the day.
Tip: To make use of this moisturising product on a new level, always choose a Hydrosol that perfectly suits your skin type: pandan for dry skin, lemongrass for combination, turmeric for acne.
Moisturising intensity: superficial, hydrates only the top layer of the epidermis.
2. Day Moisturising Cream. This product is a blend of the water phase and the oil phase. On mass-market products, every single cream is made out of blending the distilled water and mineral oil. But if you ever tried Natural Day cream, you may find much more than that: a delicately whipped blend of high-quality Hydrosols with extra virgin vegetable oils. This simple formula makes cream highly powerful for daily hydration. As hydrosol connects to the oil, it can moisturise on much deeper levels. Avoiding unneeded evaporation of the hydrating ingredients from the skin surface. Which means your skin will benefit fully from the product applied
Tip: while shopping for the Moisturising Day Cream try to avoid mineral oil in the formula, as it can provoke signs of early aging and misbalance breathing function of the skin.
Moisturising intensity: hydrates deeply.
3. Hydrating Night Serum. Night Serum can be very easy to use Deep Hydration weapons on your bathroom shelf. Night serum is a blend of extra virgin oils, vitamin, and glycerin. Glycerin is a natural alcohol that is a famous hydration agent. Because of the mixing of oils with glycerin, such serum will never leave a greasy unpleasant film on the skin. Night serum is a classical product with prolonged effect, hydration and nourishment will take place all night long.
Tip: night serum is a perfect moisturising product for every skin for night care, but can be also perfect morning hydration for owners of dry, prone to irritation skin type.
The best way to apply night serum is on the wet skin. And only 2-3 drops per application.
Moisturising intensity: hydrates & nourishes deeply.

As an absorber of toxins, activated charcoal works with our skin to draw out all the congestion that causes our skin to develop acne. In Bangkok Soap Opera Sea Salt Soap is made of 100% coconut oil and contains 100 gr of salt per each 100 gr of soap. This concentration makes the soap solid as a rock, very long-lasting and extremely valuable for acne, and here is why:
– Fights acne-causing bacteria.
– Restores the skin’s natural pH balance.
– Detoxifies the body.
– It provides vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that the skin needs to stay clear and healthy.
– Sea salt has an exfoliating effect to remove impurities that clog pores promoting new skin growth.
– It promotes blood circulation.
– It restores the skin’s natural oil balance.
– It can prevent skin infections.

Use the tips below to make your choice
Natural Soap is a bit softer in comparison to the manufactured bar. Treat it delicately.
Natural Soap depending on the formula may have less rich foam. If you bubble soaps with hands high chances you will receive creamy foam. To gain big bubbles use the sponge.
Natural Soap is prone to melting in a soap dish. To avoid that please choose a soap dish with a good drainage system. So the bar will have time to well dry between usage.
Always choose the soap bar depending on your skin type. For dry skin choose soaps based on olive oil with delicate adding: chrysanthemum/ oats/ vanilla/lavender/ vegan milk/butter. For oily skin focus on soaps based on coconut oil and more detoxifying agents: charcoal, salt, moringa, kaffir lime, green clay.
To keep the smell and color of Natural Soap Bar longer do keep it in the paper bag, this will keep soap protected from evaporation or the impact of direct sun. But giving the soap a chance to dry out well and become even better in quality. By any means avoid stocking soap in plastic, zip-lock bags.
