It can be both humbling and inspiring when you meet someone who has created a unique business. One such person is Onampai Osiri, the founder of Moné. After many years working for large, international corporations as part of their marketing teams, she founded her own company in 2017, producing natural mineral soaps.
We first wrote about her and her company in October 2020. So naturally, when we thought about items we could feature in the Citylife shop that would also tell the story of the innovative and creative people of Chiang Mai, Moné was high on the list.
Moné’s products are based on 100% natural ingredients, Khun Onampai wanting to ensure her brand is not only good for skincare, but also the planet. Using only virgin oils, such as coconut, avocado or rice, and combining them with plants and vegetables known for their beneficial properties, the addition of secret minerals intensifies the positive effects creating a soap unlike any other.
Khun Onampai and Moné have won several awards, such as the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s Green Production, and the Chamber of Commerce Chiang Mai and Chiang Mai University’s Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science’s Top Ten Award in 2017. In 2020, Moné won the prestigious Prime Minister’s Export Award for outstanding performance as best Halal. Recognition indeed that Moné is good for the skin and the planet.
In addition to the mineral and rock soap, Khun Onampai has introduced skincare creams and lotions that also use natural ingredients, and patented, unique mineral production knowledge.
In recognition of Moné being our first featured brand, Khun Onampai is offering Citylife an exclusive special offer. A special 3-pack of Aloe Vera, Turmeric, and Thai Herb mineral soap bars, for the price of 2 bars. So, buy 3 but only pay for 2.
This makes an ideal gift for someone you love. Or someone who takes their natural skin care seriously and cares about the planet and sustainability. Or simply just pamper yourself. But hurry, stocks are limited!
Rock on, Moné!
