When Miya Chong went on an overseas business trip in 2017, she stumbled upon a soap crafting shop and was immediately intrigued by the fragrances and designs.
As someone who has been in the beauty and wellness industry for four years, she felt like she has an acute appreciation for the art and science behind the craft.
She was also compelled to the idea of turning the mundane activity of showering into something more “mindful and holistic”. Moreover, she had just given birth to her first child and was looking for a new hobby to indulge in.
“I purchased a mini soap-making kit and started exploring from thereon when I (returned to) Singapore,” said Miya, who is now a mother of three.
“It was with that kit that I started self-experimentation and exploration with that medium, getting inspiration from Pinterest and other soap makers. I was fascinated (by) how customisable soap (can be) — it was instant magic creating these usable art pieces.”
