Arunkon Vass – a native of Thailand who immigrated to the United States, mother of 2 highly energetic boys and founder of Simple Nut Organics has built a great reputation around her quality soaps bars which customers from all over the world love. She started selling at local markets in Houston Texas and soon expanded online.
Her soaps were originally made for her 2 sons,
Ethan and Zachary. Both boys were born with a skin condition commonly known as eczema and after trying many over the counter products with no success, she decided to research and put in time to make a soap bar that would help soften and bring relief to their skin condition. From this, Simple Nut Organics was born, its core ingredient, the finest organic coconut oil.
The legend and lore of Simple Nut Organics began in the 13th Century – a time when Marco Polo was traveling from Europe to China in order to bring back spices and other luxuries during the Age of Exploration.
As he traversed the region we now know as Thailand, he came upon the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Ayutthaya was a sophisticated culture most notable at the time for its native medicines which were quite advanced for those times. Historians refer to that period in Ayutthaya/Thai history as the Golden Age of Medicine.
Central to the medicinal tools of these people was the coconut, which Marco Polo introduced to Europe upon his return. It is those very same pure ingredients and ancient Thai formulas which Marco Polo discovered that we incorporate into each and every handmade Simple Nut Organics product.
