Togean Natural is a Handmade Soap is specially made in respond to conditions in villages in remote areas in Togean, Sulawesi due to pandemic. It's a small movement led by Sihkami Denting, Founder of Togo Eang Ecolodge together with women from villages in Togean Islands.
We are developing natural products without preservatives, coloring, and other chemical additives. Most of materials are grown locally such as Coconut, Patchouli, and Seaweed.
In remote villages, women have not been valued as an asset in the family. They are often left behind to either work in the kitchen or farm to help the family. Some women are abused and mentally and physically by their husband. Or they are a victim of an early marriage problems.
School is luxury here, some kids have to travel by boat about 10 km to go to school. As a result, many women are married in the age of 15, have kids but then left out by their husband. One of our women do not read as she left school at a very early age.
