It was once a leading bath soap brand in India.100gm soap prices 30 ₹.[citation needed]


Hamam soap was established in 1931 as a mild soap that could be used by families. Hamam used its natural ingredients in its products long before using all natural ingredients was a trend. It was, at one time, the only Indian-made natural soap. It is said to be pure and safe on the skin.

In 2000 it came Neem, Pudina, Tulasi, Lemon but after 2010 Hamam soaps came with Neem, Tulasi, Aloe Vera hence Pudina, Lemon missing in later variants.[citation needed]

Between 2009 and 2011, Hamam launched Hamam Nalangumavu soap. It has been withdrawn from market due to regular Hamam strong presence and less sales numbers in Nalangumavu variants.[citation needed]
