From The Straits Times    |

The move towards clean beauty has been gaining traction in the industry and on social media in recent years, catalysed by the rise of brands taking a conscious and holistic approach by formulating products with clean and natural ingredients.

One standout beauty brand is Rock & Herb, whose mantra is to merge aspects of nature, tradition and science. In doing so, Rock & Herb’s innovative products harness the functional and restorative powers of nature’s herbs and minerals as validated by scientific research.

Backed by a team of scientists and doctors, Rock & Herb has studied and uncovered a remarkable collection of herbs, botanical extracts and minerals to create products that help restore skin to its natural healthy state. Its star products are two moisturisers, each developed out of different traditions and ingredients of different places to suit different skin needs: Brightening Angelica, from the Arctic Miracles range, and Enzyme Rescue, from the Tropical Magic range.

Arctic Miracles Brightening Angelica ($98) promises to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots, while combating uneven skin tone, melasma and discoloration. It features powerful ingredients from the subarctic regions, such as the Angelica dahurica flower and arbutin from bearberries, that reduce melanin production. It is also infused with a hydrating and brightening blend of vitamin B3 (niacinamide) and oil-soluble vitamin C to increase skin’s moisture levels and help reduce the look of wrinkles.

Tropical Magic Enzyme Rescue ($92) is inspired by the tropics. This supercharged moisturiser contains stabilized wound-healing enzymes, papain and bromelain, extracted from papaya and pineapple. It is also imbued with jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C and E. Together, this incredible blend of ingredients is said to lessen inflammation, heal wounds to prevent scarring which could arise from acne or cuts, and hydrate the skin. Perfectly suited for the heat and humidity of our region, this cream also helps control excess sebum and oil production, and has antibacterial properties.
