Natural / Handmade Soaps

Switching to natural soaps can be a refreshing change. Look out for soaps made of ingredients found in naturally occurring botanical oils such as palm, coconut, olive oil and jojoba and other natural products such as oatmeal and almond. Natural soaps won’t strip your skin of its essential oils ...avoiding such as dryness, itchiness and flaking.

Khadi Handmade Soap

Khadi Handmade Soap is a pure herbal handmade soap. This commercially handmade soap usually contains herbal ingredients. This handmade soap tends to be less eco friendly.

Khadi Handmade Soap manufacturers offer cost effective products. Khadi handmade soaps are made with natural oils. They also consist... high glycerin content. As such, they are better for the environment and are free from detergents or phosphates.
