Introduction to FYSHA's Natural Handmade Soap
It has been awhile since we have a review for body cleanser. We are glad that FYSHA decided to share with us their range of luxury, natural handmade soap. The name of this company was inspired by the union of the two words from Greek - "FYS" originated from "FYSIS" meaning nature, and "HA" means handmade. With these two principles, founder of FYSHA - Amina has successfully created these luxurious yet natural, eco-gentle vegan soaps.
The ingredients used are vegan formulas blend with cold pressed plant oils, clays and butters, on top of their premium extra virgin olive oil from Greece. In addition to their small batch production process, FYSHA's natural handmade soaps uses an advanced method of soap making called cold process in order to harness the maximum benefit from every single blended ingredient. Moreover, each bath of soap is cured for at least six weeks. Hence, now you can see why these are one of the finest soap products you can find in the market.
With that, today we are gonna review the two soaps we have received - Lemongrass & Activated Coconut Charcoal & Peppermint and French Green Clay. We selected these two with Amina's recommendation because we wanted products that are suitable to our humid climate here in Southeast Asia, and men who are are active, and have oily or sensitive skin. Let's dive into our reviews!
Common Ingredients for both soaps
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (Cold-Pressed) The original eco-luxury skincare secret, our cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil is rich in vitamin E and anti-ageing antioxidants. These hydrating qualities work in harmony with the skin’s natural synergy for youthful-looking, radiant skin.
Coconut Oil One of nature’s most luxuriously moisturising natural oils, our food-grade Coconut oil deeply hydrates skin to leave it smooth, radiant and supported.
Shea Butter Packed with antioxidant rich vitamins E and A, Shea butter is rich in essential fatty acids that help to counteract skin dryness and seal in moisture. Our cold-pressed shea butter helps hydrate and soothe to leave skin looking refreshed and youthful.
Castor Oil Castor oil has long been documented for its reinvigorating skin properties. It penetrates deep into the skin to help stimulate collagen and elastin production to delay the onset of fine lines. This powerful ingredient leaves skin rejuvenated and supple.
Vitamin E Vitamin E is a rich source of antioxidants and helps protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals that can lead to fine lines and premature aging.

Ingredients: Lemongrass & Detox Charcoal Soap
Lemongrass Oil Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, lemongrass oil is a powerful natural toner, excellent for detoxifying tired skin and restoring its natural balance. Its uplifting clean scent helps to reinvigorate and re-energise.
Activated Charcoal RichKnown through the ages as ‘black diamond’, our activated coconut charcoal expertly removes toxins, excess sebum and impurities from the skin to leave it feeling cleansed and rejuvenated.
Ingredients: Peppermint & French Green Clay Soap
Organic Peppermint Essential Oil Refreshing and energizing, our organic peppermint essential oil helps to cool, tone and balance skin to bring it into perfect harmony.
French Green Clay French green clay is one of nature’s finest exfoliators. It naturally purifies skin, sloughing away dead skin cells while tightening pores and reducing inflammation, leaving skin clear and smooth.
Packaging & Design
The soaps are nicely housed in a small paper box with glossy labeling printed on the surface. In addition, it has a subtle fine designs printed throughout the box, which gave a luxurious experience by just looking at it. Opening up the box was easy and has a small note containing the ingredients used and the values that FYSHA represents. It weighs at 113G.
To create a rich lather, rub on wet skin surface and massage onto wet face of body with a clean sponge. Then, you can either rinse off with cold or lukewarm water. For maintenance of the soap, keep it in a well-drained soap dish and let it dry between uses. Store in cool and dry places, and keep it away from direct sunlight. During application, just make sure avoid contact with eyes.
Overall, this is one of the most gentle natural handmade soap I have ever used. You can't deny that the scent is very pleasant, not very strong (similar strength to Ursa Major deodorant) but yet creates a soothing aroma, especially with the Peppermint and French Green Clay. Applying on the body was very easy when it's lathered up. This natural handmade soap doesn't feel dry after rinsing it off like most bar soaps. In fact, despite with my sensitive skin, both the Lemongrass & Activated Coconut Charcoal and Peppermint one works perfectly fine. It feels refreshing and has some moisturizing touch to it. For oily skin, the Peppermint soap which has French Green Clay provides a better deep cleansing.
In summary, if you want to charge up your morning with refreshing scent and have oily skin, get the Peppermint & French Green Clay Soap. On the other hand, if you want to alleviate stress after a hard day at work, someone who perspires a lot and with mild sensitive skin, get the Lemongrass & Activated Coconut Charcoal.
