Guys, I have a confession to make! I am addicted…. to bath products. My knees go weak when I happen to look at any good smelling shower gels or soap. *ting* That is the sound of me getting a confirmation mail from Woovly about my purchase. No regrets, I am just a simple girl with a box full of soaps of all kinds. Shh! Do not snitch on me to my parents. (They don’t know)
Can you relate to me on this? If yes, I found one more product for you to indulge in your guilty pleasure. It is the St. Botanica’s Luxury Handmade Soap. Since I am a frequent user of their products, there was no doubt I had to get my hands on their gourmet soap range. I bought this product from Woovly three weeks ago and here is my verdict:
What Are Handmade Soaps?
Saponification is a chemical reaction between lye and oils/fats to make soap. Handmade soaps often use these soaps as a base and further add essential oil or ingredients. How the soap turns out will depend on its recipe and the combination of oil used. Unlike the mass-produced soaps, handmade ones are natural and do not use detergents, lathering agents, artificial fragrance, and other synthetic ingredients.

About The Product
Infused with premium-quality essential oils and ingredients, the soap is available in three variants: Sensual Amber, Lavender & Vanilla and Rose & Jasmine. The price of St. Botanica soap starts from ₹275 to ₹399 that compared to other luxury handmade soaps are quite reasonable. You can buy them through their website or shop at the Woovly app.

WORTH IT/SKIP IT?
It’s a definite yes from me! Once I started using St Botanica’s handmade soaps, I never went back to using commercial brands. I could feel the difference from the first wash. My skin felt nourished, supple, and healthier.
They smell divine and have a long-lasting smell. Nothing says a good shower than the lingering fragrance you get throughout the day. These luxury handmade soaps are now 100% in my bath routine.
Coming to a drawback, buying an INR 275 soap vs INR 50 does not seem justifiable or viable to many. But investing in these soaps is definitely worth the money. Instead of stocking up on moisturizer, these luxury handmade soaps do a job in keeping skin soft and supple. From the days where I couldn’t go a day without body lotions, I do not feel the need to spend the same amount of money anymore.
HOW ARE HANDMADE SOAPS BETTER THAN COMMERCIAL SOAPS?BRANDS
Handmade soaps are made with raw and natural ingredients, while some of the formulations of mass-produced brands are not even considered soaps. They use harsh detergents and hardening agents that can leave your skin dry and damaged.
Since Glycerin, which attracts moisture, is a by-product of the soap making process, handmade soaps are naturally more nourishing. Many commercial soaps use Palm Oil for the same. Though great at its job, Palm Oil is extremely bad for the environment. Hence, luxury handmade soaps made with premium essential oils are non-toxic to the environment.
