Regular price $0 $18

Binu Binu is a brand of modern soaps inspired by the ritual of the Korean public bath, a place free of vanity and inhibition and where generations are brought together in the simple act of cleansing.  Their formulas are based on the idea of daily ritual, intergenerational bonding, and the infamous Korean scrub treatment "Seshin," a vigorous, pragmatic and extremely effective exfoliating treatment that can be found at the baths. They use 100% natural plant botanical ingredients and essential oils. Made by hand in small batches in Toronto using the cold process method which retains the skin benefiting properties of natural oils,  Binu Binu soaps are fragrance-free and do not contain palm oils, synthetic detergents, artificial colorants, parabens, sulfates, or animal products.
