Soapworks soaps was created because of a sincere concern about the harsh chemicals present in skin care products and the adverse effects of these chemicals on us, our children and our planet. Soapworks was started by a young woman named Harini Sivakumar who is a banker turned entrepreneur. Soap making was her passion and hobby. During the initial days, she used to make a few batches of soaps just for home use and to gift them to friends and relatives. Over a period of time, the demand for these soaps started to develop and had a lot of requests on custom orders. The hobby gradually grew into a small home run business and now into a manufacturing unit. Harini also has her studio at Sector 47, Gurgaon, Haryana where she formulates her unique recipes and also retails out. The USP of the products is that they are 100% natural and chemical free. The colorants used are botanical (indigo powder, arrowroot powder, spirulina powder) and micas, and the fragrances used are essential oils and fragrances that are plant based and chemical free.
