With a stated desire to promote and support herbs native to Asia, Gla offers a totally organic Hydrating Liquid Body Cleanser, made only from natural ingredients. Cucumber and aloe vera extracts help to hydrate, moisturize, and rejuvenate skin. Olive oil is added for additional rejuvenating effects while jojoba oil removes dirt and oil deposits and works as a moisturizer at the same time.

A soap bar in your bag comes in handy after a tough workout; it’s smaller and lighter than shower gel, plus it doubles as an air freshener (Sweaty towel smell? No thanks.). On a mission to reduce air pollution in Bangkok, natural soap manufacturer Soap Villa uses high-quality natural ingredients in its handcrafted. Its White Flower collection is mainly made using rice bran oil and coconut oil, both moisturising and leaving skin with the unique scent of three classic Thai flowers: jasmine, frangipani, and summer lilac. Each bar is available at soapvilla.com.
This face mist uses mineral water from the French Alps and crystal-clear lagoon water from Tahiti to replenish skin. Beefed up with a touch of THANN’s original active ingredients to really revive skin, the Nano Shiso Leaf Extract contains precious natural elements, including Rosemarinic acid, I-perillaldehyde, and vitamins B1 and B2 to protect and enhance skin cells with their anti-oxidant properties. A blend of lavender water soothes sunburns (perfect for high-UV hot season) and a whiff of the sweet Japanese herb enlivens the mind and spirit for long productive days (on the beach, of course).
Prep your lips for the perfect selfie with this brown sugar lip scrub. While certain exfoliators leave lips dry and dull, brown sugar can actually absorb moisture from the environment and deposit it into your skin. And the addition of bamboo in Organika’s Organic Lip Scrub removes dead cells. The scrub also contains a variety of anti-oxidants, jojoba oil, shea butter, and vitamin E to leave lips soft and lightly scented with a hint of almond.
This all-in-one oil has been used throughout Asia and the Pacific region for thousands of years, thanks to its numerous uses, including for cooking and medicine. De Coco Bangkok welcomes beach season into the fold with their signature Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, which can be used for hair, skin, and even cooking (that’s right). After a day (or several) on the beach, apply the oil to your skin for a deeply moisturizing treatment or to prevent sun burns. Keep it close at hand, as it stops the skin from peeling and also helps to relieve sunburns. De Coco’s virgin coconut oil is suitable for all skin types, it’s affordable, and, most of all, it smells delicious.
