The story of Borneo Soap starts deep in the world’s oldest rainforest. Inspired by ancient wisdom, Borneo Soap’s organic skin care products fuses time honoured tradition with modern bath and beauty formulations that are natural, healthy, and from non-toxic alternatives - from facial, body to foot care.
Mr Amin, the founder of Borneo Soap.
I attended Borneo Soap Appreciation Day in conjunction with the Mother's Day with the bloggers on a beautiful Sunday. The event started at 10 am with presentation of Borneo Soap from Mr Amin.
With Kelly. Thanks for the invitation by the way. (:
Shortly after the presentation, product demonstration on the soaps were shown.
Individually handmade, their organic soap and skin care products are made from natural ingredients native to the rainforest of Borneo and is therefore, totally devoid of harsh detergents, synthetic preservatives, artificial colors and fragrances, greasy mineral oils and even animal fats.
Palm Oil, Avocado and Evening Primrose Oil are used to make the soaps too. (:
Ingredients heralded for their healing, therapeutic properties and long used by the indigenous people of Borneo in their bath and beauty rituals. The ingredients are Bario Rice, Barley, Dabai, Honey, Kaffir Lime, Oats and Sago.
There are many types of soaps in the market with different function. Each bar of soap is decorated with beautiful artwork which caught my attention.

After that, we had a catwalk competition organized by them. Each of us had to walk out with the props that we had and did the catwalk with the music that we had selected during the registration counter. We also had to come out with a slogan which represents the Borneo Soap.
I got a huge glasses as my props and did a catwalk with Adam Lambert's song entitled "For Your Entertainment".
