A lot of what we might think of as Western brands are made in Thailand. After my earlier post I checked my Listerine mouthwash this morning - made in Thailand.
Ah, OK, yes - a lot of them are indeed locally made (My wife reckons some cosmetics brands made here are lower quality, like Olay, and has me bring her favourites with me from the UK)
Germany - Muhle brush
USA - Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood soap
USA - Gillette NEW open comb razor
Israel - Blue IP razorblades
Portugal - Musgo Real Aftershave
What AS do you have from Thailand? I'm there now, and I've found nothing native.
I bought this at Foodland for US$0.86 / bottle. It's a menthol splash. It's made by British Dispensary Company in Thailand. They also make the famous Snake brand Prickly Heat talcum, which is very nice.

Oh, wow, thanks - I'll be popping into Foodland next time I'm near (which will be soon). And yes, the Snake brand Prickly Heat powder is great stuff - we use it all the time here.
