I have always loved Forest Essentials products because they are genuine, high in quality and are made out of natural ingredients. Added to this my obsession with orange fragrance and my new found love for handmade soaps. All this combined together, and here I am with Forest Essentials Sugar Soap in Bitter Orange & Cinammon flavour. I’m so glad I bought this soap, it is one of the most enjoyable soaps to use and really feels luxurious. And here is what makes this soap so good and one of my best.

Forest Essentials sugar soap in Bitter Orange & Cinnamon comes as a clear soap covered in white butter paper and packaged in brown paper printed in the front.

Key Ingredients:

  • Saponified coconut oil
  • Saponified palm oil
  • Glycerine
  • Sucrose
  • Almond
  • Reetha extract
  • Citrus bitter orange peel oil
  • Cinnamon leaf oil
  • Vitamin E


These soaps are made by hand using the old fashioned cold process. Forest Essentials sugar soaps are made with pure  unprocesses Raw Cane Sugar which is a natural humectant (a substance, especially a skin lotion or a food additive, used to reduce the loss of moisture) and helps to retain moisture in the skin.


I generally like Forest Essentials products because of their ideology and principle way of working:

  • Forest Essentials products are never tested on animals
  • None of its products are manufactured using child labour 
  • They support traditional production methods
  • They give support to local suppliers supporting local employment 
  • Their products are based on the finest traditional Ayurvedic recipes

Why I love this soap:

  • I’m a big sucker for orange fragrance and in this soap the fresh, tangy fragrance of bitter orange is integrated with the warm aromatic cinnamon which makes it smell warm and pleasant.
  • I absoloutely love how natural and pure this soap feels on my skin.
  • I definitely like the brown paper packaging. Gives the soap a natural and organic feel.
  • The lather is rich  yet light and the soap is extremely gentle.
  • It thoroughly cleanses my skin and is easily rinsed away, leaving my skin moisturized.

What I dont like:

  • Priced at INR 350/- for a bar, I do feel its kind of steep.

Overall, I love this soap and the fragrance is just awesome. Would highly recommend it. 4.8/5
