UNNA & CO.’s Exotic Soap Collection

By: Kellie K. Speed

If you haven’t heard of UNNA & CO.’s exotic soap collection, then you don’t know what you have been missing. The natural spirit and beauty of the Kingdom of Thailand is captured through this unique collection. Each of the handmade soaps is gently hand-contoured so no two are exactly alike.

During the handmade soap making process, oils and fats are combined with an alkali to produce soap and glycerin. Modern soap is still made by this basic process, but handmade true soap offers many unique benefits for the skin. Handmade true soap is made using a batch process by individual soap makers, most of whom choose the highest quality pure skin-loving oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, hemp oil. They also use rich butters like cocoa butter, shea butter and mango butter.

Inspired by nature, UNNA & CO. uses natural and organic ingredients that are abundantly available in the Kingdom of Thailand while focusing on quality in the soap development process. Each soap is handmade using the cold process method in small, controlled batches. It is then mixed with a delicate blend of fresh picked harvested herbs, legumes, fruits and grains, along with the purest botanical essential oils and naturally occurring charcoal made from coconut shells. This process creates a unique blend of natural colorant and aromatic soaps. UNNA & CO. soaps are handmade and set with wooden teak molds. After the soap has cured for 5-6 weeks in warm tropical temperature, it is hand-cut and contoured into the shape of a stone.

It takes 10 to 15 minutes to mold one soap by hand. One family member can hand-mold a maximum of six soaps per hour, resulting in less than 50 soaps per an eight-hour shift.

UNNA & CO. soaps contain naturally occurring glycerin, which creates an exceptional super-rich and creamy lather. The result is a soap designed to mildly and gently moisturize your skin while deeply cleansing the pores.

The natural oils, herbs, charcoal, botanicals, grains, and fruits contribute to the full-spectrum of texture and color within the UNNA & CO. exotic soap collection.
