Made in Singapore
Despite being a little red dot on the world map, Singapore is often recognised for its entrepreneurial spirit and impeccable products made famous worldwide
BALM KITCHEN BIOROYALE
We all have bad hair days, and for some less fortunate ones, hair loss. The weather in Southeast Asia is particularly humid and damaging to the hair, and products are often not catered or made with our hair qualities in mind. With that being said, BioRoyale is one haircare brand that quickly found the need to fill this gap. With over 20 years of research and formulation, the brand created BioRyale GroBack shampoo, condition, serum and overnight vitalizer for local consumers. The products are a formulation of natural ingredients such as aloe vera, calendula, rosemary oil, lavender oil, green tea extracts and more. Harmful chemicals, parabens and sulphates are also removed to provide a healthier scalp, in turn aiding in good hair growth with the help of vitamins A, C, D and K in the products. Consumers can also use the product at ease knowing it has gone through stringent assessments from Health Sciences Authority of Singapore (HSA). Despite being a relatively new player in the skincare and body care industry, Balm Kitchen has become a recognisable brand in Singapore with its botanical-based products that are both gentle and effective. The botanical-based, vegan and cruelty-free skincare is also made with certified organic ingredients from Europe, USA, and Australia. All products are place in PET and BPA-free packaging wrapped in Kraft brown paper bags upon check out – all of which are recyclable. The latest range, Anti-pollution skincare capsule collection, comes with an Eco cosmetic pouch suitable for gift giving in any occasion. Living in the city has its perks of added convenience, but the environmental pollution is a large threat to both our health and skin. A ph balanced Floral Cleansing Water and Rejuvenate Cleansing Balm will help achieve a deep cleanse while nourishing the skin. Follow up with an Antioxidant Facial Essence toner that hydrates and a Super Fruit Defense facial oil serum to protect the skin barrier.
FARM TO BEAUTY
We get a couple of farm-to-table dining concepts in town, but it is not every day we hear of farm-to-beauty trends. Spa Esprit Group (SEG) is more than just a home-grown brand with a diverse portfolio in the beauty & wellness industry, it is also a trendsetter that takes pride in being socially responsible while being self sustainable. The beauty products from the label are first harvested from an urban farm atop Raffles City Shopping Centre, and then handcrafted in small batches to ensure top quality before releasing to the stores for sale. After three years of research, the brand is proud to release A Cool Aloe Cooling Gel and Om, Calendula! Calming Cream. Both beauty products help to soothe skin irritation such as mild cuts, sunburns as well as inflamed and itchy skin. These products work exceptionally well after a grooming session, especially any waxing or brow grooming services.
