SUMU-SU soap is handcrafted with 100% plant-based oils, distilled rice water, and essential oils. It does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or any synthetic fragrances, colorants, or preservatives. In Asia, men and women have used rice water as a skin care treatment for centuries. SUMU-SU soap helps cleanse, tighten, and revitalize skin without the use of harsh chemicals. In making natural handmade rice water soap, I hope to spread awareness regarding the harmful chemicals used in commercial soaps and to promote the benefits of rice water.
Hello all! My name is Wing Pokrywka, soap artisan and founder of SUMU-SU soap. This journey began as a hobby / experiment to make soap with not only natural ingredients, but also to incorporate rice water to help with my eczema condition. Growing up in Hong Kong, rice has been used for centuries as a natural beauty treatment for cleansing and softening the skin and I am proud to be able to incorporate a part of Asian culture into my products. Aside from making soap, I also create all of the recipes, product packaging design, photography, and marketing for the company, along with creating this website. Overall, my goal with SUMU-SU is to provide high quality body care products at an affordable price in the effort to spread awareness regarding the benefits of natural soap and rice water.
