Seshin Korean Scrub: An exfoliating soap inspired by "SESHIN" (Korean body scrub treatment, enjoyed when visiting a jjimjilbang public bathhouse) the revelatory, cleaner-than-clean Korean body scrub experience. Black sesame seed provides natural exfoliation, while ultra-fine washed blue clay derived from volcanic ash and remineralizing sea salt help to draw out impurities for soft, clean skin.

Shaman Charcoal Soap: Created in homage to the female shamans of Korea known as MUDANG (Female healers, who bridge the space between the human and spirit worlds), this soap contains essential oils of sandalwood, known as the "cosmic tree" in Korean folklore, the heart of the creation story of Korea. Sandalwood, pine and activated Charcoal, ingredients used in traditional purification rituals. This soap is wrapped in white paper packaging in reference to BAEKJI (Paper burning can be viewed as an act of purifying uncleanness with fire, but also as a prayer to the gods, in which case the white paper serves as a medium between humans and the gods), white ritual paper used in shamanic rituals as sacred objects, offerings, or in the burning of sacred text.
