Ever since I started work as a fledgling journalist in 2006, I daresay I’ve seen my share of beauty brands and products. Some of them come and go (it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… gone in 1 year -poof!-), whilst others withstand the test of time because of good product quality and a unique selling point. That said, some fellow journos will say they’ve become jaded – me? Hell no. I love exploring and uncovering new beauty brands. One fine day, as I was strolling around one of Singapore’s megamalls, I saw this popup stall selling a whole buncha green stuff, and wandered over out of curiousity (the huge crowds drew me over).
ABOUT THE BRAND
Available exclusively at Guardian Pharmacy, Botaneco Garden is a very green (almost literally) beauty range – inspired by nature’s best, they contain botanical ingredients as well as 100% eco-certified oils. Their products are all dermatologically tested and proven (conducted by an independent laboratory, with the results evaluated and signed off by a dermatologist), and are even manufactured under a 3-step quality system to ensure product integrity.
The brand has several ranges (Organic Chamomile & Oatmeal, Organic Argan & Virgin Olive Oil, Trio Oil, Organic Inca Inchi & Aloe Vera), and prices range from a ridiculously affordable $4.90 to $7.90.
WHAT DO THEY OFFER?
Well, the above explanation all sounds very fine and dandy, but to a consumer like you and me, what they’re offering are basically affordably priced bath and bodycare products that smell so, so good so that you can give your body some TLC from head to toe.
If you’re keen to try out their products, I’d suggest starting from their star range – the Argan & Virgin Olive Oil range, which i salso enriched with 100% eco-certified Organic Argan Oil from Morocco and Virgin Olive Oil from Spain.
Commonly referred to as “liquid gold”, powerful actives in Argan Oil include Omega-6, Omega-9, Vitamin A, Tocopherol and Linoleic Acid, while the antioxidant-rich Olive Oil intensely rehydrates and nourishes the skin, leaving it healthy, youthful and radiant.
