We often hear that soap bars are bad for our skin. But is it really? Whilst at Bud Cosmetics last week, I posed this question to owner Eric Chew since he used to make his own soaps in Australia. And his answer? It’s not true. It really depends on the soap content.
The last dermatologist I visited snubbed at organic skincare. I don’t blame him given that his is an industry that is driven by groundbreaking formulas in cosmeceutical science and promise of immediate results. There also wasn’t an organic skincare range that was used and recommended by dermatologists at all. But with the launch of Sophyto Organic Skincare Range, the world’s first professional grade organic range endorsed by medical skincare professionals, I think he should have less to complain.
If you’re looking for natural and organic skincare products in Singapore, then Bud Cosmetics is the place to go because they have a fairly extensive organic range which can meet your beauty needs from head to toe. I have stumbled across their online store many a times but this was the first time I visited the shop, thanks to owner Eric Chew, who agreed to have his store featured under my first Viva Shop Tour. And I was pleasantly surprised to find the little shop so well stocked! I don’t know why I never discovered the gem earlier!
I received a sample of the Deep Cleansing Scrub which is a dry mix from Yours Essentially about three weeks ago. I have heard of some ladies who love using such DIY scrubs and masks and was fairly keen to try this. And since I had the hydrosols on hand, it was easier for me to use those as the wetting agent to the scrub.
