One of Malaysia’s greatest treasure is our nature. We have so many high quality natural resources in Malaysia, it is actually quite hard to believe we are not one of the leading name in manufacturing original all natural products. Take for example Borneo Soap. A luxurious high end handmade soap, made in Sarawak. It is not only handmade, it is also made with all natural products of Borneo’s natural goodness.
I was invited over to Borneo Soap’s Mother’s Day event. It was during then that I was introduced to this luxurious soap brand from Borneo. There a couple of things that I am pretty impressed by this brand. One would definitely be their ingredients used. Their ingredients are purely natural and organic, a luxury and rarity in modern times.
The second thing that I am impressed by them is their insistence in using manpower to produce their soap rather than relying on quick machineries. Although manufacturing using machines will be much more cost effective and quick, but at the same time, the ingredients might not be treated properly. This explains the high quality control of their products and it definitely gave me a good assurance as a consumer. They uses the cold pressing method to produce their soap and it takes up to 21 days to complete a batch of soap bars.
At the same day, we were also being treated to a spa session at The Spa Village, Ritz-Carlton. I am being treated with an hour full-body massage (no hanky panky obviously) and also a 30 minutes scrub treatment. Almost dozed off due to the comfortable and cozy spa experience. Once the spa is done, I was given a Borneo Soap Bar to try during my shower session.
It was truly a surprise to use Borneo Soap. Being a guy, naturally I have little concern and care towards whatever body care products. But I always hated to use a soap bar as it often makes my skin felt dry and slightly uncomfortable for a period of time after shower. It is a different experience using the Borneo Soap as it (like what the girls meant I think) moisturise my skin. Now I know how rich men felt like.
