Shan Shui Bar Soap in Kamala & Lemon Verbena

Regular price $6.95 $0.00

Lofty mountains enveloped by flowing water, and resplendent scents wafting softly in the wind; our Shan Shui soaps are inspired by traditional Chinese landscape paintings that embody the belief that heaven and earth exist in harmony. This ancient art form, often considered the highest form of expression of Chinese painting, presents reverence for the cosmic forces of nature and demonstrates the Taoist balance of yin and yang. The encompassing message that humans are minuscule compared to nature’s might mirrors our assurance for sourcing natural, sustainable ingredients that capture the protective and nourishing properties of botanical living materials.

Our handcrafted bar soaps pay homage to the yin and yang of nature by using the highest quality ingredients and our special pouring technique that reflect the spirit and aesthetic of the Shan Shui paintings. Utilizing old-world soap making methods, we look to the past to ensure that the final product is good for the skin and the environment. We use 20-30% of natural essential oils in our bar soaps in addition to ecologically sourced palm oil. Indulge in one of our soaps for a truly poetic lathering experience! 

Red Kamala & Lemon Verbena

Climb up the path on a stately mountain until you reach the top of Huangshan, drink in the sight of the reddened clouds, and breathe in the vitality of nature. This gentle bar soap has a glossy lemon verbena scent, and is coloured naturally with kamala and madder root powder.

For mindful use: Lather up with water and rinse off. Please note that all the soaps will vary in design due to the unique, handcrafted nature of our products.


Align your “chi”:

Kamala purifies and detoxifies while madder activates the natural healing function in skin.

Formulated with silk fibres, this bar slides smoothly across skin to restore skin’s natural moisture.

Little bits of red madder in the middle of the bar softly exfoliate any rough patches.

Bamboo charcoal is the final touch for a thorough cleansing—drawing out bacteria and toxins and purifying your skin.


Ingredients: elaeis guineensis (palm) kernel oil (ecologically sourced), olea europaea (olive) oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, hydrolyzed silk peptides, rubia tinctona (madder) root powder, charcoal powder, mallotus philippensis (kamala) fruit powder, essential oils of: lippia citriodora (lemon verbena) leaf and citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit.
