Nature was all around me when I was young. And this was what I grew up with in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. I therefore love nature. So, starting a handmade cosmetics business made of natural ingredients (almost 100%) seems like a fantastic thing. I remember, when I was a little girl, I loved wandering in the wood near my house to chase butterflies, watch them going from flower to flower, grasshoppers, dragonflies, etc. It was a cheerful childhood that I will never forget. Growing up with nature is one of the greatest gifts my parents had given me. And I thank them for that every single day.
I have created an account on Instagram just for my handmade cosmetics business, @PinkLotusIsland. I’m not quite sure with the name, yet. But, I will just choose this one for now. I am going to make bath bomb as my first cosmetic product to begin with. I love everything natural & tropical. So, my cosmetic products must have that natural feel which connects people to nature. I want people to feel as if they live on a tropical island, or visit an exotic place like Thailand for instance, when they use my skincare products. Thailand has many beautiful, tropical islands, beaches, and the like. So, I want people to feel connected to those beautiful places in Thailand, even when they are not there themselves.
When I miss Thailand, I just look at the beautiful photos of exotic places in Thailand, which helps more or less. I think of my hometown, Nakhon Ratchasima. It has such a beautiful nature. It’s where Khao Yai National Park is located. Lovers of nature and wildlife shouldn’t miss. It also has many waterfalls.
Phimai Historical Park is also one of popular attractions in my city, Nakhon Ratchasima. If you like history and ancient stuff, then this is the real thing. It has similar structures and architectures like the world famous Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
It’s hard not to think of somewhere exotic like Thailand, for example, when you are in London. And the weather is nothing like Thailand. And that’s why, I want to create handmade cosmetics that give you a sense of being close to nature as much as possible. I can’t wait for my first product, bath bombs, to come out!
