Suds up with designer soap

Wednesday, 2 May 2012

Daniel Ting Chong soapGuys, if you’re looking to add a little fun to shower or bath time, a fresh new range of scented soaps has just been launched.

With the help of soap maker Nature’s Skin Food, Daniel Ting Chong, a Cape Town-based illustrator, designer, artist and VJ/DJ, has created three rather unusual alternatives to the traditional bar of soap.

“I wanted to make something quite quirky and fun,” Chong says. “The Paintbrush has a lemon scent, the Cleaver has a strong peppermint scent and the Ice Cream is combination of both.”

The range is available online through the Nature’s Skin Food website (R90 excluding shipping), or at Cape Town’s Astore (R105). The range will also be making its way to Johannesburg’s Wolves Café soon.

Stocks are limited, so place your orders now!

    Cute, but not too sure about it, for a man? Maybe if the colours were more masculine…
