History: 
Mutenka Sekken first began making their natural soaps in 1955, primarily for dry cleaners. However in 1998, Mutenka developed a cold process method of production that allowed them to create a line of soaps for individual home use. Mutenka soaps are made with a luxurious assortment of special oils, moisturizers and beauty ingredients, which makes their manufacturing process more labor intensive and highly delicate so they can't be mass produced.
