What she does...

Akanksha Malhotra has her workshop in Lajpat Nagar, where she makes customised soaps. She follows the traditional way of making soaps — handmade. Her range of products, apart from soaps, also include bath salts and bath bombs. “People think that natural soaps, bath salts, bath fizz are only for those who have large pocket. I want to change this mindset and introduce people to the go-green way of bathing in style. It’s natural yet affordable,” says Malhotra, whose soaps are priced between R75 to R200. She even makes soaps according to the skin type.For customised orders, mail her or call on 9811536559
