My Grandmother Hand Crafted Soap With Century Old Fashioned Tradition.

Century Old Fashioned "Handcrafted Soap".
I see nobody talk much about their Grandmother's
I want to tell all about my Grandma and how we start our Handmade Soap,


Santa Lucia Palin Murari Borba was farmer's daughter from Murari's Borba, born in Italy 1904, who invented the Natural Handcrafted Soap with essential oils in Brazil .She moved to Brazil in 1917 from hers home in Toscany where she had trained to make essential oils from the plants.

Opened a small shop in the then fashionable residential area of Brazil, Sao Paulo, and attracted the custom of many wealthy families. She noticed that the Sao Paulo upper classes cultivated a delicate white complexion whereas a tanned face was associated with the working class who toiled in the outdoors. Santa Lucia Palin Murari Borba realised that there was a need for a gentle soap for these delicate complexions. After much trial and error she found a way of removing the impurities of the base soap before adding the delicate perfume of garden flowers. Lucia Palin gave the natural soap an aroma reminiscent of an rainforest tree and wild flowers.
We are still used today the same natural oils and pure natural ingredients combined with the delicate fragrance .


Approximately 55 different choices are available from an array of categories - citrus fruits, plant and flower extract, from the tree, oatmeal, goat's milk and buttermilk, espresso coffee, from the sea, clays, herbs and triple-milled French.

She took on a partner, her grandson Borba and they moved to new premises in the South of Brazil where there was more immigrants such as Italians and Germans. Santa Lucia retired in 1980, leaving her grandaughter to continue the business of the USA-NC firm of Borba & DiTomasso. Lucia Palin Borba is alive and lives healthy in Brazil.
