There’s been a focus on cleaning products, like soaps, in 2020 and 2021 (thanks, coronavirus). But there’s more to these suds than function: they can be gorgeous and smell gorgeous, too. Soap-like substances (originally, ashes combined with fats from animals) have existed in civilizations for about 2,300 years. In the centuries since, formulas have evolved to include the luxe lathers that we use today. Below, Nest Casa presents the 10 brands to browse for a spa-quality scrub.

Our Favorite Soap Makers

Create a Korean bath house in the comfort of your home (and your tub) with these soaps from Binu Binu. The Eastern-influenced brand uses boricha—or, Korean roasted barley tea—as the base for its bars, which are handmade in small batches in Toronto, Canada.
