Beauty with health – Cambodia’s new preference

Beauty products with chemical ingredients irked one Cambodian woman so much that she decided to create her own organic skin care material. More Cambodians like her are switching to organic personal care products.

When Mary Leng first tried a lemon grass soap, she instantly felt the difference. Her skin felt smoother and she felt refreshed and relaxed. It also left a nice fragrance in the room.

Leng has a sensitive skin, and skin care products in the market always irritated her. She kept looking for organic skin care products, which use natural ingredients instead of chemicals. But then she decided to take the matter in her own hands.

She started learning how to make organic beauty products. “Even when I was a child, I used to think that I should make my own beauty products. Actually, most of the ingredients were in the kitchen,” Leng told DW.
