COLD-PRESSED & HANDMADE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty Bazaar -

WHAT IT IS: When ac­tive in­gre­di­ents are pro­cessed at low tem­per­a­tures, the en­zymes, an­tiox­i­dants, and amino acids are pre­served. Handmade scents are also cap­ti­vat­ing, from can­dle wax to the in­tri­ca­cies of the wick, it is the hours spent and con­cen­tra­tion of in­gre­di­ents and ar­ti­san­ship that sets them apart.

PRO TIP: “We pre­serve prod­ucts us­ing in­gre­di­ents that are as ef­fec­tive and not toxic,” ex­plains Chanel Je­nae, co-owner of Ar­cona. Jas­mine Gan, founder of Sanc­tu­ary, uses lead-free cot­ton-core wicks in her soy can­dles “to en­sure cleaner burn­ing qual­i­ties.”
