Early last month, I was sent a couple of products from Morcare in UK. This is a line of cosmetics that are formulated with naturally derived ingredients, and made with a strong focus on social responsibility where special care is given to the origin, the cultivation, the method of collection of the raw materials for the further processing. All Morcare products are made to be free of chemical preservatives, PEG, mineral oil, synthetic additives, GMO, and fragrance. In addition, they are not tested on animals and the formulations are said to be non-comedogenic.
I’m not a stranger to Trilogy, having used their Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil back in 2008. I had liked the product and was keen to try others in the range but was dismayed to find out that when I did want to try, the brand is no longer available at Watsons. But thank goodness for the good people at It’s Natural! Six of their products are now available in Singapore again and I was given two for a complimentary review recently.
Even before I received these from Renouve, I was already enthralled by the pretty packaging featured on the website. And when they arrived, I had to consciously remind myself that I should not use them on my face. I mean, just look at them, don’t they look like some upmarket facial products? But they’re not! They’re actually hand sanitizers! More specifically, they’re touted as the world’s first luxury anti-aging hand sanitizing lotion made with collagen stimulating peptides.
I have come across Pai Organic Skin Care many a times but have never tried their products. I don’t believe we have their products in Singapore. My impression of the brand is that it is rather high end, maybe because of the simple and clean packaging. However, now that I’ve gone through their products on their online store, I realized that this brand is more mid range because the prices aren’t so steep afterall. And yet their ingredients look rather pleasing to me for the products are formulated without alcohol (ethyl alcohols & alcohol denat), artificial fragrances, detergents (detergents including Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine and Decyl Glucoside), formaldehyde (including sodium hydroxymethylglycinate), parabens (including japanese honeysuckle), phenoxyethanol and propylene glycol. Many of the ingredients are also certified organic by Soil Association.
