It started as a little stall at Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok, Thailand 20 years ago. Today, its products are distributed in 55 countries.

Thai spa and body care brand Lemongrass House currently produces over 1,200 products, all by hand, for sale around the world. The 100 percent natural and environmentally-friendly products are made at the company’s flagship store in Phuket in Thailand.

Founded by Bobby & Palita Duchowny, Lemongrass House provides hand-made spa products to the world’s top hotels and spas.

Malibu-born Duchowny went to Thailand in 1996 on a movie assignment, fell in love with the country, and decided to stay back. He developed an expertise in the extraction of pure plant oils, and was inspired to create a brand that was based on a deeply rooted environmental commitment, using pure ingredients sourced from sustainable resources.

Using neem oil as a natural insecticide, Bobby and Palita made it up in their Bangkok apartment kitchen and sold it at Bangkok’s famed Chatuchak Weekend Market.

Thai brand Lemongrass House has opened its first store in Malaysia at 1 Utama Shopping Centre in Petaling Jaya.
