Borneo Soap, The Gem from the Rainforest

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Good morning girls….woohooo it’s Thursday and I still trying to enjoy my working life in Singapore and can’t wait to get off from work to meet up my friends for dinner tonight!! Last week, I had an early Mother’s Day celebration with my mum. We went for a luxury spa day which uses the hand crafted Borneo Soap.

This is my first encounter with Borneo Soap and I am really proud that my own country can come up which such high quality and luxurious soap made from ingredients from our rainforest.
Me & mum were invited for Mother’s Day appreciation day at Ritz Carlton courtesy of Borneo Soap. It was a whole day packed with fun activities and pampering session. We were treated with yummy breakfast before we begin the activity!

As I mentioned earlier, all Borneo Soap are made from natural ingredient using cold process thus you can expect the soap are all very soft. Borneo Soap uses pure concentrated goat milk as a base for all their soap and every bar is enriched with vitamins to provide a luxurious cleansing experience, making them rare gems to be treasured and enjoyed daily.

There is about 10 types of facial and body soap available currently all with different function and are made of different ingredient. Facial Soap are more delicate and more expensive because extra virgin olive oil, shea butter, avocado oil, evening primrose oil, sweet almond oil are added to the facial soap because it can moisturize and smoothen our delicate skin around our face area.

Borneo Soap are made using Cold Process with no heat applied during the process at all. All ingredients are mixed evenly in a bowl until it produces the finest mixture. This process ensures that all the good nutrients are retained whereas if you apply heat, the nutrients are mostly destroyed. Then the soaps are left to age/cure naturally for at least 21 days in room temperature. This will ensure that all the moisture is removed and all the ingredients react with each other. Once curing process complete the soap will then be cut into individual bar.
The staff also demonstrate to us how the soap is made is being cut using the cutting equipment. This cutting equipment has string similar to a music instrument called “ Gu Zheng”.

The spa room had such a relaxing ambient and what I like about it, is it a had toilet inside the room so you don’t need to walk a distance to go to toilet…. The bed is absolutely divine to lay on… The lighting, the atmosphere and the masseur are all in good combination that ensure the whole spa session such relaxing one.

We had a 1hour body massage and 30 minutes body scrub and proceed to a hot shower with Limau Masam Borneo Soap. Me and mum really love the body oil they used…. So smooth and yet not oil at all!! We never tried anything like this before!

The open air shower area had such a beautiful sight!! I don't mind soaking in the tub for the whole day enjoying the wind blowing, green scenery and calm water flowing sound from the fountain!

Borneo Soap32

We used the Borneo soap for the very first time and we are amazed on how soft and smooth the texture is.. Both me and mum skin are very sensitive and we only use ph5.5 shower gel, surprisingly this soap does not irritate our skin at all!!

After the spa session, we were served with Ginger tea and the Borneo Soap team also prepare some macaroon and jelly for us…. So thoughtful of them!!!

I brought home facial soap and I had tried the Dabai Sarawak Soap on my face. If you followed my skin condition update you know the acne on my face keep popping out nonstop… I was surprise that after few uses the acne seem calming down… I am not sure if it’s the soap or it’s that the fact my body is not so stressed this week and not so heaty. One thing for sure my skin feel soooo smooth after cleansing with the soap!!! I will continue to monitor and wait up for my full review on that!!

Mothers day is around the corner, it’s the perfect time to purchase this soap as a Mothers day gift. I really love the luxury packaging of the soap. The detailed of the front cover to the internal box, everything is perfectly packaged.
