Launched by Nisha who is a pharmacist by profession, Soap Lab Malaysia is an online store providing ingredients, tools and knowledge to make natural soaps, shampoos and cosmetics at home.
Why should you make your own skincare and haircare products? Soap Lab Malaysia products are made from safe and organic ingredients that are good for your skin and hair. Natural soaps and cosmetics are also recommended for those who have sensitive skin or skin issues such as eczema and psoriasis.
Here are four DIY projects from SoapLab Malaysia you can try at home!
1. Mangosteen Cranberry Shampoo
This shampoo contains only four ingredients and is suitable for the entire family to use. Mangosteen is naturally high in antioxidants and acts as the main ingredient in this shampoo, resulting in shinier and healthier hair with each wash. The mangosteen cranberry shampoo can help those with dry, dull and thinning hair. It is also safe for babies and pregnant mums. SoapLab Malaysia’s shampoos are sulphate-free, paraben-free and 100% natural.

3. DIY Baby Massage Oil
SoapLab Malaysia’s baby massage oil is mild and nourishing, perfect for protecting your baby’s skin against dryness, inflammation and irritation. The combination of olive oil, argan oil and sweet almond oil results in formula to lock in the moisture in your baby’s skin and scalp. Dried chamomile buds and calendula not only make the massage oil smell wonderful, but have healing and calming properties as well.

4. Handmade Unscented Baby Nappy Balm
This unscented baby nappy balm is a must-have for mums with newborn babies! SoapLab Malaysia introduced this balm to help reduce skin irritation around babies’ nappy area, which is common in Malaysia’s hot tropical climate. The balm, filled with moisturising ingredients such as coconut oil and shea butter, creates a barrier between your baby’s skin and the diaper.
