If you keep up with beauty and wellness trends, you have probably tried at least one Korean and/or Japanese beauty product. Formulated with fresh ingredients and often offered at a lower price point than Western skincare, these products have truly revolutionized the beauty world in recent years. Yet, the influence of Asian beauty products doesn’t end there. In fact, there are many powerful and highly favored Asian beauty and wellness brands currently on the market. Here are 3 Asian-owned labels you should get familiar with this spring.
Nail polish is commonly filled with three toxic chemicals: formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). But, this isn’t the case with Sunday's nail polish! The label – which is also behind a trio of salons in New York City – produces nail products that are vegan, cruelty-free, and 10-free, which means that they are without 10 common chemicals, like the ones mentioned above. Plus, the shades are available in trendy and timeless colors, so you can rock a neon manicure, or go for a timeless nude or red shade.
Are you dedicated to the planet and to keeping your beauty regimen as waste-free as possible? You will definitely want to check out Clean Circle, an Asian-owned brand of reusable makeup remover and skincare pads – think woven cotton rounds that can be reused again and again! If you try the makeup remover pads, you will certainly appreciate the pads’ pointed tip, which makes removing eyeliner and makeup in the crevices of your skin easier and more comfortable.
If you are a beauty devotee, you may have heard of Tatcha – but, what you may not realize is that the luxury brand is heavily influenced by ancient Japanese beauty rituals. Every Tatcha product is formulated with a proprietary blend called Hadasei-3, a "trinity of anti-aging superfoods born from the Japanese diet and the basis for the original geisha beauty rituals.” In other words, using Tatcha products could very well result in ageless, nearly perfect skin!
