Giesta is the New Porto Brand of Handmade Soaps ♦ Adopting a green and sustainable lifestyle has always been a common interest of Ana Costa and Gizem Tugce. Deciding to embrace him, they joined Gizem’s expertise in the production of handcrafted soaps and Ana’s design background. From this happy marriage was born Giesta, a handcrafted soap brand. Secrets From Portugal brings you this amazing brand, enjoy!
They do everything from home and use only natural, mostly organic, local ingredients – some come straight from the garden. Soaps, suitable for all types of skin, go through the process of cold saponification with a base of extra virgin Portuguese olive oil. From here you can add essential oils, edible flowers and leaves, infusions, spices or even oatmeal (self-made).
The result is a wide variety of soaps, from the simplest, such as orange blossom and lavender, to more complex soaps such as rosemary and clay. You can buy them through the Facebook page. Prices range from 2.50 € to 4 €.
