Our soaps are handcrafted in the proud tradition of the cold processed method to give you a rich lather that creates a luxurious feel. Recipes that we have learned & observed to have worked over the years & that is what we believe makes our soaps unique!
With every soap bar, one enters a time & place where quality & craftsmanship remain steadfast.
Using the finest of natural ingredients enriched with shea and cocoa butter, we wish for you to enjoy a moment of calmness, vitality, refreshment and wellbeing; every time you shower
Our soaps are free of synthetic colorants, fillers, ethyl alcohol, DEA, parabens, and phenoxyethanol.
Not tested on animals.
Since every batch is carefully made in a small quantity, it is easy for us to tell you exactly witch ingredients go in the soaps you purchased. Unlike a commercial factory where one would refer into a computer software to find that out. What makes a cold processed soap unique is that it only requires mixing cold pressed oils with caustic soda to make a soap unlike commercial soaps where additional surfactants might be added to produce more lather and bubbles.
We only use food grade cold pressed plant oils. The cold processed method of manufacturing ensures the glycerine (witch is a humectant) stays in the soaps & helps in skin conditioning. A variety of additives such as floral waters, dried herbs, sugars such as honey & essential oils are added to give you a more natural, authentic & a quality experience in the shower.
Handcrafting a soap, particularly a natural one could best be compared to conceiving a baby! Mother Nature does not let you choose its look & appearance. While making soap a string of chemical reaction aka saponification takes place between the oils & the caustic soda (aka Sodium Hydroxide 'NaOH').
Different batches of oils & other ingredients react differently at the end of saponification leaving a unique bar of soap. Therefore the soap you receive might be slightly darker or lighter in color than its photo on the website, however; one of the same exceptional quality as with all of our products at 'Casa di PAVANITO'
I was 17 then, stood outside a legacy airline’s office with my CV in hand for Cabin Crew interview, and witnessed many candidates getting rejected in the first round on the basis of "not being presentable".
It was the hard way of being introduced to the concept of ‘grooming’, and one of the best way’s to understand its emphasis on life out of college.
With formal qualifications in Cosmetic Chemistry, in time Corporate grooming, Salon ownership & management, Hair & skin care, Diet, Profile management were areas I gained professional experience. What started as a learning curve eventually became a passion turned into a full time job.
The flying job takes you around the world. You are exposed to brands world wide & you over indulge in personal care products. Back then the job required you to have a flawless skin & fabulous hair, a norm that may seem quite relaxed in the industry today. Being a Salon owner puts that extra pressure. How you could you possibly sell someone a facial with a bad skin yourself?
Personally there was a need to have a product that I could trust myself & my family with. The next thing, PAVANITO was conceived. Formulated by me, recipes that use natural butters, oils, essential oils & plant derived extracts to create a line that smells as well as feels right on hair & skin. Products that are made in small batches where the entire procedure from making to bottling & labeling is done by hand.
Launched in 2014 at a local farmers market with just 5 products, the brand now has a portfolio of over 50 products. Sold exclusively at regular weekend exhibitions & organic markets in U.A.E.
This is thoughtful grooming, this is PAVANITO.
