Founded by Bobby & Palita Duchowny, Lemongrass House is the leading provider of hand-made Spa Products to the World's top Hotels and Spas. The line has been known over the years for integrity, creativity and quality.
Bobby was born in Malibu, US. In 1996, he came to Thailand 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 Chatuchak Weekend Market.
A stroke of luck came to them when UNICEF Thailand placed large orders for their signature all-natural mosquito spray. The rest, as they say, is history. Bobby and Lemongrass House have since been featured in the TIME magazine, Conde Nast Traveler and The New York Times.
With his background in aromatherapy acquired in the US, Lemongrass House product range expanded rapidly. From a simple stall at Chatuchak Weekend Market, Lemongrass House now operates over 40 retail outlets in 11 countries. Our products are distributed in over 55 countries worldwide, in over 480 five and six-star hotels.
Lemongrass House currently produces over 1,200 spa and body care products, all by hand, one kilo at a time. The products are made at our flagship store in Phuket, Thailand. All products are sulphate- and paraben-free, and have never been tested on animals (Just occasionally on the people we love!).
Lemongrass House has a strong commitment to the environment, which can be seen in every aspect of our company. Only the freshest and most natural ingredients (no long-winded chemicals!) are used in our products. Our uniforms are made from 100% cotton or other natural materials. Our stores are designed with natural wood backdrops and shelves. Our products' packaging is made from 100% recyclable materials and we are continually looking for ways to reduce Lemongrass House's carbon foot print.
