Today, i am reviewing this Aromatic "Country Rose" Soap from BON(Bio Organic & Natural-Auroville).
I know.. i know.. Monsoons have officially come to an end.. but then, who doesn't like Roses if given every season! Right? (Nice justification i gave for not posting it on time. :P) :D
Let's move on to the review.
About the Brand: In their own words:
At Bio Organic & Natural(Auroville) we are inspired by the nature’s secrets towards longevity and healing properties riddled in its precious oils, fragrant flowers, gentle healing herbs, flavored spices and other valuable botanicals. We propel to deliver this organic experience of ‘true nature’ to you as we have recognized that these wonders of aromatherapy will render tranquility and good health to the body, mind, and soul.
This is not just a range of personal care products on the shelf, but a conscious way of living, an archaic way of life for everyone.

Price: 152/- INR for 100 gms.
Biodegradable/Eco-friendly? Yes. On all levels. Have a look at what they say: "We have grown and continue to grow with the belief in adopting the natural alternative to everything which should be natural; starting from the way of processing & developing to the materials used in packing & printing we have proved and are proud to say that “we are a pollution free unit” of the modern world."
Love them! <3 :)
Packaging: Eco-friendly paper and cotton cloth.
I first discovered this brand in an Organic store in Chennai. I had no idea about either Auroville or this brand. Bought a soap just to try something other than my usual Soulflower soaps but, ended up loving it a lot. And, after visiting Auroville, my respect for this brand grew infinitely. (Will write the trip post sometime)
And as for functionality, this is a very simple soap which serves the basic purpose of cleaning really well. It lathers beautifully even with a mere rub. Hence lasts decently long for 100 gms. Doesn't dry out the skin except in winters(for obvious reasons!). And the Soothing stress relieving fragrance is where this particular 'Country Rose' variant wins brownie points.
After this very satisfactory experience, I've tried many more variants whom i will review soon.
Availability: Available online on Bonorganics.com Where you get free shipping anywhere in India with no minimum order value! And if you live in Chennai, you can find their soaps in many local organic stores. In Bangalore, i found it in "Organic state" store near Mantri mall, Malleshwaram.

Do i Recommend? Obviously! Yes! And, supporting an Eco-conscious and Socially responsible Brand is definitely a Bonus!
