VILAMEL

Our soaps and deodorant are inspired by the beauty of life in the villages of Goa. “Vilamel”, a blend of lavender, lemon and ylang ylang is named for my grandparents house in Saligao, where I spent many weekends and holidays, sitting on their Balcão, in the early morning or late evening, birdsong in the trees, chai in hand, watching the sky change colour. The lavender sachets that scented all the cupboards and my grandma’s special lemon squash made from the tree in her garden are some of the things I’ll always associate with her.

ILHAS

With floral, citrus and herb notes, “Ilhas” is warm, uplifting and relaxing and easy like a lazy Sunday. With the added goodness of moisturizing oils like Mango and kokum butter, this bar is a tropical delight. “Ilhas” meaning islands in Portuguese is coloured with French green kaolin clay and Indigo herbal powder to showcase the tropical greens and blues of our skies, rivers, beaches, hillsides, forests and fields of our home state Goa.

SANGOLDA SUMMER

Sangolda Summer” is for summer holidays, spent with all my cousins, at our house in the village of Sangolda.

COCOTINIE

“Cocotinie” is named for my mother, the first soap I made for her, and still her favourite, is this plain unscented bar, that lathers beautifully and has a light, delicate scent of coconut.

FIELD DAY

“Field Day” an ode to Village life, is inspired by the green fields of Goa, filled with rice in the monsoons and vegetables and herbs in the cool season. Scented with mint, basil and eucalyptus, this bar is fresh and energizing, just like a traditional cool shower from the village well.
