Puro Body & Soul Whitening Saffron & Sandalwood Handmade Soap Review

Puro Body and Soul is a company which almost feels like a fairytale story. It is a story of how if you dream big enough you can make miracles come true.

Puro Body & Soul is the brand name for a charitable organisation called Shramik Naari Sangh (Sa-Ni-Sa). This organisation supports underprivileged women and helps them earn an income.

These women have been trained to produce handcrafted bath and body care products. I just was so impressed by how this organisation is empowering women and giving them a voice. I wanted to support their cause and hence I purchased a whole set of handmade soaps made by these women.

There is something romantic about handmade soaps and I was waiting eagerly for my soaps. I was also afraid that the impulse buy might disappoint me. This is my review of one soap.

A few facts about their handmade soaps

  • 100% Cruelty Free – this means they are not tested on animals
  • Chemical Free
  • SLS Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Silicone free


  • Soap Base
  • Turmeric Extracts
  • Saffron oil
  • Sandalwood oil
  • Licorice

The soap has all natural ingredients, except the soap base. Licorice and Turmeric have been used for ages in beauty and skin care products because they can lighten and brighten the skin. Listed below are the benefits of having licorice and turmeric in your skin care regime.


  • Reduces dark spots, blemishes
  • Lightens skin
  • Natural sunscreen


  • Reduces acne & scarring
  • assists in reduction of pigmentation
  • reduces skin tanning
  • evens skin tone


I am so excited that the soap has no artificial fragrance whatsoever. It had a strong smell (a bit too strong for me). I am thinking it was the combined smell of all the oils it had which made it so intense.

Puro Body & Soul Whitening Saffron & Sandalwood Handmade Soap Review

This is the first time I have used this soap. I was surprised at how transparent the soap was. I could see my fingers through the soap. You know just like the red pears soap..

To be honest I wasn’t expecting any lather or foam of any kind and so I kind of wet the soap a bit too much. It lathers so well and foams. Actually it soaps better than the soaps in the market.

The soap has a strong fragrance, really intense. I had washed my hands using it and as I am typing this review out I can smell that lingering fragrance. My hands smell of that fragrance and I am satisfied knowing that it is all natural. No chemical fragrances to harm my skin and body.

I has left my hands feeling soft and supple. I am excited to use it for a few more days and check if still keeps my hands soft and moist. I will update here when I get to that point. I also am eager to check how many days will the soap last.

So what other cruelty free soaps have you come across?
