The Finest Local Skincare Brands in Singapore

When it comes to skincare, the world often turns to Korean, Japanese, or Western brands for solutions. However, what about the hidden treasures of Singapore’s own skincare industry? To the surprise of many, Singapore boasts several local skincare brands that have not only captured the hearts of locals but have also gained international acclaim.

In this exclusive list, we’re shining a spotlight on Singaporean skincare brands that deserve special recognition. These brands have earned their place either through their well-established popularity or their unique offerings that cater to skincare enthusiasts worldwide.

So, why not entrust your Singaporean skin to the care of homegrown brands? In this curated collection, we’re putting the focus on the very best local skincare brands Singapore has to offer, all crafted with love and expertise by our very own locals. Without further delay, let’s explore the skincare solutions that are not only the best for you but also recommended by dermatology clinics in Singapore.

Frequently Asked Question

FAQ

Is it okay to use different brands for skin care?

There is no evidence to support the idea that utilizing cosmetics from various brands damages skin. In fact, as long as the products are well-formulated and don’t contain any known irritants, mixing products from various brands is not a problem.

Do you have to use the same brand of skincare?

Better Results Don’t Always Come from One Brand
Although using clinical-grade skincare is ideal, don’t be afraid to try different brands. Even if a cleanser you adore isn’t made by your preferred brand, you should still buy it. It doesn’t matter what you use as long as it complements your skin.

What skincare are recommended not to use together?

These 6 Skin Care Ingredient Combinations Are Incompatible
AHA and retinol, also known as retinoids.
Retinoid or Benzoyl Peroxide with Retinol.
Vitamin C and retinol or retinoids.
Salicylic acid and retinol or retinoids.
The cleanser made with soap and vitamin C
