No Gum Just Soap
A truly Singapore soap.
A playful take on the no gum rule
on the sunny island of Singapore
also known as the Garden City.
Sale of Chewing Gums was prohibited in Singapore since 1992 but you can still bring them into Singapore in small quantities for personal use and you won't be fined as long as you dispose of them properly.
This is a fun souvenir for all your friends back home
to share a piece of this garden city you visited.
This gifting bundle consists 6 petite cold process bars
handcrafted from scratch* and scented with Spearmint essential oil
for your easy gifting
Each bar is wrapped as such to remind us of
the sweet treat that is so familiar to many
but you can't buy in Singapore.
A fun yet meaningful gift that is nourishing to your skin.
Practical, low waste gifting.
Only available at Discover SG Transit shops in Singapore Changi Airport
this Apr - Jun 2023.
In case you are curious...
Here's more background around why this popular sweet treat was banned from being sold in Singapore. From this link, you'll also be able to read up more about Singapore's history from 1299 to see how it transformed into the Global City today.
Despite being a small island with limited natural resources, Singapore grew from a fishing village to the beautiful, prosperous city. This seemingly impossible task is made possible through the hard work of a pioneer generation and
the foresight and hard decisions by great leaders of the nation.
The ban of chewing gum was no doubt an unpopular decision during the early days but a good call to contribute to the clean, green and fine city we are today.
*Each bar is handcrafted from scratch and may bear minor irregularities in colour, marbling or textures. Soaps don't spoil easily. As long as they don't smell bad, they will lather as they should and are good for use. Keep them away from the sun, store them in cool and dry places and they are good for a year or more from the date of purchase.
