Soaps made from Ai and Wasanbonto in Tokushima
• Ai: Indigo. The basic raw material is the leaf of the Polygonum Tinctorium. The Japanese process differs from that in other parts of the world in that the leaves are fermented to extract the indigo compound. The plant grows well in the western part of Japan (mainly Tokushima = old name, Awa.)
• Wasanbonto: Sugar, as a softening of brown sugar to taste.
