RE:ERTH's Ziling's spills some beauty industry secrets
Ziling is the co-founder of Singaporean beauty brand RE:ERTH, a mindful skincare brand that uses nature-derived active ingredients in its products. She shared some of her beauty secrets, including the reality of having a skincare brand in Singapore.
"It's really difficult to get the right formulation," Ziling explained. "It's not like mixing ingredients in the kitchen like you would with food." She went on to explain the intricacies of formulating your skincare products which she sums up in three points.
First, they have to ensure that you'll get the benefits of the skincare ingredients from their natural form even as their appearances change in the process. After all, these need to provide a function to be in your skincare products.
These ingredients should also be shelf-stable or won't lose their potency before the expected expiration date. These also have to be well-researched for the safety of your skin.
Lastly, these ingredients need to be formulated in a way that makes it easy for your skin to absorb once you apply the product to your skin. That's a lot of factors to consider, don't you think?
