Beauty is only skin deep as they say, so why not treat your precious complexion with the pampering it deserves? Organic beauty trends are still going strong worldwide, and in Malaysia, you’ll find several passionate, enterprising brands looking to show the world that going green doesn’t have to be a chore – and it can help you both look and smell divine.
They smell as good as their pretty packaging promises, and these 100% chemical free face and body soaps are perfect for all types of skin.
Infused with extra virgin olive oil, shea butter, essential oils, and herbs, Earth Care’s heavenly bars are made using the traditional cold process method to maintain all the moisturising and nourishing ingredients your skin needs.
The top stars of this brand include the Lavender Chamomile soap, for calming and relaxing effects; Rosehip Coconut Milk Soap for deep hydration, and Calendula Aloe Vera soap for troubled sensitive skin. They also sell lip balms, scrubs and other beautifying essentials.
Standing out with their quirky vintage packaging and text, what makes the cold process soaps from The Saponifist truly unique is the use of an impressive 50% of olive oil in every bar.
Created by chemistry loving Nadya Lee, the brand uses a lot of Victorian imagery to imitate the feeling of an old-fashioned apothecary, for a different take on the natural approach.
Popular products include the Emulsion, made with goat’s milk for a luxurious skin-pampering session that will leave your epidermis as soft as a baby’s, the Panacea Chrysanthemum and Liquorice soap that doubles as a mild exfoliator, and the Red Australian Clay soap which smells like Christmas, and is the perfect gift for the holiday season.
Handcrafted on the historically rich island of Penang, Wilde Naturals creates non-greasy body washes, scrubs, balms and face serums for tropical climates, using ingredients locally grown and harvested.
Their Cinnamon Coffee Scrub is quite the hit, best for brightening up dull and dry skin. The finely ground Robusta coffee beans are great for sensitive skin types and help to reduce the appearance of cellulite by dehydrating fat cells and drawing out toxins.
Other highlights include the Elemental Magnesium Oil, which can be used to solve a variety of issues from menstrual cramps, fatigue, and insomnia to skin problems like psoriasis, eczema, acne, as well as the Aloe Vera body wash, which is super moisturising and can be used on hair and face, leaving you smelling fresh and feeling revitalised.
