“Clean beauty” is probably one of the most popular buzzwords in the beauty industry these days. Clean beauty products are formulated with a streamlined list of ingredients to make sure that they don’t contain anything that doesn’t do good for your skin. This mean that common ingredients found in typical beauty products such as fragrances to make them smell better or silicones to give your skin a smooth texture are all omitted in the formulation.
Loved by those who have sensitive skin or those who want to prevent potential damage to skin because of added chemicals, clean beauty products are all the rage these days. And if you’re among those who are looking out for clean beauty products to add to your stash, here are 19 new ones that have just been launched or will be launching in Singapore. Get your shopping list ready!
