In Vietnam, like in other countries, soap had for a long time a bad reputation. It did not foam, was slippery, cracked while drying, and dehydrated the skin. Today the soap is back driven by the craze for simple, artisanal cosmetics, guaranteed without toxic products. Delicate perfumes, old-fashioned packaging, gentle on the skin, economical, the solid natural soap finds its place again in the bathroom and would even be about to dethrone the shower gel, considered too chemical. On the decorative side, it has become an accessory in its own right. There is no question of letting a soap run out of place on a washbasin corner because today a soap tells something about you and your lifestyle.
