Founded in 2003, Republic of Soap originally started by manufacturing only natural cold-process hard bar soap in different styles. Over time, many new products have been developed that now represent a wide variety of items, ranging from standard hotel liquid amenities to spa application/bulk and retail, butters, scrubs, sun/after sun care, natural insect repellent, solid shampoo, body oils, candles, room fragrance, reed diffusers, natural deodorant, toothpaste, hand sanitizer etc.
Republic of Soap is one of the very few Class A Cosmetics Manufacturing Facilities on the island of Bali that is approved by the Indonesian BPOM (which is the equivalent of the FDA/food&drug administration). This means that we have fully complied with the many rules and regulations regarding build quality/factory layout/environmental impact/production methods and standard operating procedures for all aspects of our facility.
Rather than just offering product A, B or C, one of our strengths is that we are able to be flexible and work with clients to create the product range that they want. This often involves adjustment or 'tweaking' of standard line recipes we have, although in some instances we have to create completely new formulations to achieve a result that meets the clients requirements. As a b2b manufacturer, we almost exclusively produce for hotels/spas/villas/boutiques etc. We can also act as an OEM manufacturer if the client has specific proprietary recipes/formulations that need to be reproduced.
We manufacture in small batches, fresh, daily - which is another thing that most manufacturers don't do. Our philosophy is to add goodness in every way we can - and believe that by using small-batch mentality - it helps us to put positive intention and energy into each batch - handmade with care and precision.
