Honeymooners at Dusit Thani Maldives are gifted upon arrival with a special box of the local artisanal brand Ogaa‘s self-care products.
Ogaa creates soaps, shampoo, and bath bombs with local ingredients such as Maldivian coconut oil, tamanu oil, and velanbuli (love vine), as well as fruits like papaya, and leaves like moringa and neem.
“We’re proud to collaborate with sustainable local brands like Ogaa and help support their work by introducing their impressive products to our international guests,” said General Manager Thomas Weber.
“Ogaa’s beautifully handcrafted soaps, shampoo, and bath bombs truly capture the aromatic essence of the Maldives, and we trust our guests will enjoy using them at our resort and also when they return home to evoke happy memories of their stay.”
Azu Ameen, founder and owner of Ogaa (which comes from the Dhivehi word ogaatherikan for caring), started out with a vision to connect people with nature. Ogaa’s unique, all-natural, cold-processed soaps and other bath products are 100% biodegradable and waste-free.
“Growing up on a small low-lying island nation, I was always conscious of my own little ways to nurture and love our planet,” she said.
Each bar is poured and cut by hand and packed with delicious aromatic ingredients that evoke the essence of the archipelago. Dusit Thani’s lucky guests carry a sustainable piece of the Maldives home with them.
