Our website is www.stoa-studios.com. The brand name really is Stoa, but we are a multi-faceted studio that makes all these items.

As of February 2019: While all items on this website are available for international orders, transactions can only be made through email for now.

We customize jewellery for engagements and weddings, and the rest are minor modifications from our designs except for the stones used—from semi-precious stones or heirloom diamonds.

Handcrafted soaps are processed and cut by hand, so no two bars will be exactly alike. Color and shape may appear slightly different from batch to batch. Those differences do not affect the quality of the soap in the least!

You may also witness 'soda ash', which is a harmless powder-like substance, appear on the surface—although this will disappear during the soap’s first use.

We are making absolutely no claims on product capabilities. Our products are not intended to  treat, cure, or prevent any skin condition.

Our bath soaps are approximately 2.25 inches long, 2 inches wide and 1 inch thick; while our shampoo and lotion bars are approximately 2 inches long, 2 inches wide and 1 inch thick.

A soap bar lasts between 3-4 weeks. This is based on normal use. How long it will last depends on the usage.

Although handmade soaps usually get better with age especially cold processed soaps, we recommend using our soaps within 12 months of purchase.

Our lotion bars should be used within 3 months of purchase and must be kept away from contact with water to avoid rancidity (since we don’t use any preservatives).

Store them in a cool and dry place to retain their freshness.
