Borneo Soap – From Borneo with Love

[RoyalSlider Error] No post attachments found.

In my last full-time job as a Web Developer in a company, I got to know this very kind co-worker named John. Well, not the John Doe‘s kind of John because he exists and was sitting in front of me.

Most of the co-workers I know who’ve worked with him surely can testify these words I will always use to describe him: kind-hearted, calm, natural, shy, helpful, mild like a vanilla, always smiling, harmless like a bunny and a little mysterious (and that’s because he hardly reveals too much info about himself.)

Be it attending to a last minute work or fixing a mind-killing IE bug that seems like a mystery of the universe, I’ve never once seen him lose his temper. Not even ONE frustrated face throughout the 4 years I’ve worked with him.

“This is such a rare kind of human. I guess Sarawakians are usually kind-natured like him.” I once thought to myself mindlessly. He is a Bidayuh.

I was looking for words to summarise what I thought about Borneo Soap the other day, and somehow he just popped up like an epiphany: the nature of Borneo Soap that I just gotten to know is very much similar to the Borneo-born John’s in many ways.

Borneo Soap is a luxury skincare products and soap manufacturer based in Sarawak, Malaysia.

Much like John, Borneo soaps are “natural” – the soaps are au naturale, edible and handmade; “harmless and mild” – they are free from harsh detergents, artificial colourants, preservatives and fragrances, greasy mineral oils and animal fats; “helpful” – they are therapeutical; “rare” – the company is the only one of its kind in the industry, and the soaps are premium-priced; and a little “mysterious” – the soaps are made from ingredients indigenous to Borneo rainforest, and thus lesser known to the world.

(Not sure what John would think if he knows I compare him with soaps lol)

It is a very traditional skincare approach when compared with Derma-Rx I’ve been using. But as the mild-nature of the soaps suggests, they are suitable as supplementary skincare products as well.

We’re invited to “Mother’s Day Appreciation” event organised by Borneo Soup not long ago (well in case you wonder, that lady beside me in the above gallery is my sis. My mom didn’t make it). We had so much fun playing game (that explains the PlayBoy bunny ears right there) and enjoying a great buffet at Shook! and a luxury spa session at Spa Village Kuala Lumpur (you should really go, I’m telling you) by Borneo Soap. Thank you!

Here’s a snippet of the event that demonstrates the gist of Borneo Soap handcrafting process:
