BRAND FORMULATION PHILOSOPHY

Perfect Confluence of Tradition + Modernity

Formulating is part science and part artistry and here at Forest Rhapsody, formulation is at the heart of everything we do.  

Leaning on an rigorous internal process, we select proven actives that are supported by clinical studies, before conducting multiple trials over months and years in our lab to create formulas that deliver exceptional results.

We then balance the rigor of science-based research with the endless possibilities inspired by centuries-old botanicals used across Southeast Asia, recognising that there is an element of sensory joy that cannot be measured in a petri dish in a laboratory.

We are equally obsessed with creating efficacious formulas, as we are with formulating skin treats that delight your senses. From the celestial texture to the invigorating scent, every single element is designed to elevate your daily skincare routine. 

"Simply, this collection is a cutting-edge solution that incorporates modern bioactives and ancient wisdom into your routine, to create a daily sanctuary for your skin and mind."  

BRAND PROMISE

Core Principles

Green Chemistry

We celebrate green chemistry by borrowing heavily from nature while embracing science. We do not shy away from ingredients that are commonly misunderstood in the 'green beauty' category  such as emulsifiers and preservatives. Instead, we seek out the most advanced alternatives to these ingredients, such as Ecocert/ Cosmos-approved ingredients and NSF organic certified preservatives to create efficacious, elegant and indulgent formulas. 

Sustainability

We believe in leaving a place better than we found it. Our skin treats come in recyclable glass jars or bottles - we hope you support our sustainability efforts by finding new ways to repurpose or recycle the packaging. 

Cruelty-free

Our products are cruelty-free and we do not conduct animal testing on any of our final products.
