Konichiwa mina-san!
(Hello everyone)

I make handmade soap in Kyoto, Japan.
Sometimes it is more difficult than in the west... Sometimes it is easier.

For example, essential oils are crazy expensive here in Japan. 2000yen ( about 20$) for 10ml of Orange Oil. 1ml of Rose Absolute costs over $200.

On the bright side... I can buy pharmaceutical grade NaOH at any drugstore for for around 10$ a Kg. Likewise, rice bran oil is plentiful and so is bamboo charcoal and other more esoteric additives like silk worm cocoons.

I hope we can share together from all sides of the world

I was stationed in Misawa Japan for 3 years! I loved it there, and wish I could go back. The food and people were wonderful!! I am glad you found our forum!

Welcome!

Konichiwa & Welcome to the forum. Glad you're here. Sounds like you make a lot of unscented soap. :)
