Being vegan is much more than eating a vegetarian diet. The new trend is Chennai market is opting for handmade and chemical-free soaps, for instance, vegan soaps. When you follow an ethical cruelty-free and environmentally conscious lifestyle you realise how the small and seemingly insignificant actions and choices in your everyday life can impact the world on a much larger scale.

Choosing natural vegan soaps are a sure way to reduce your negative impact on the wider world. These soap products are not only for your own hygiene and health but also serves animal welfare and environmental sustainability.

 

Abitha S, artisan soap maker at Ohayo, explains, "It was always not about the soaps, it was about the art and music and so these things brought me to a canvas called soap. It was all about constantly playing with colours and fragrances coming up with new soaps".

Ohayo soap bars are made using the ancient art of handcrafted soap making techniques. All the bars are hand-cut and have natural imperfections. Wood-pressed/cold-pressed soaps are made with oils sourced from around the world, a generous sprinkling of music and the joy of indulgent crafting. "The fragrances of the soap come from the essential oil and every soap is a limited one, I have never recreated the soaps", she says.   

 Abitha has come up with something called 'Rainbow Bundle', which has 7 bars with 7 fragrances and 7 moods, for Diwali. Her future goals are to create new art every time while  playing with colours and fragrances.

Namrata Nayar, soap maker at Pebbles of Nature, says, "I was into soap making for the past 5 years and I have also tried out a lot of things apart from soap, which has only plant base and is vegan. The product that I use in my skincare is all-natural and nothing has chemical content and everything is natural. For fragrances, I come up according to the weather".

The ingredients used are from fruit, plant, curd and fragrances are from essential oil etc. For Diwali, Namrata has come up with cucumber, spearmint and peppermint soaps.
