Alba Botanica: Natural, Organic and Cruelty-free
Have you ever heard of Alba Botanica? If you haven’t, this is perhaps the best time to learn about it!
Made in U.S.A, the products contain natural, organic and cruelty-free ingredient alternatives which are 100% vegetarian, with no meat or by-products of animal killing.
I attended the launch of Alba Botanica Acnedote series held at Fika Swedish Cafe & Bistro together with Gavin, as well as many new and upcoming female influencers!
Starting of with a round of Smelling Game, the launch was followed by a little presentation on the two ranges Alba Botanica carries. The products are all formulated without: parabens, phthalates, artificial colours, propylene glycol, aluminium, mineral oil, petrolatum, oxybenzone, PABA, nano-particles, DEA, MEA or TEA, PEGs and PEG derivatives, ethoxylatedingredients associated with 1,4 dioxaneand formaldehyde donors.
THE PRIZE: Eye Gel – Revitalizing Green Tea (RSP: S$24.90)
For smelling and guessing the correct ingredient, Gavin received the Eye Gel which is able to let tired eyes wake up. This feel-good, revitalizing gel has soothing aloe and green tea antioxidants which help calm puffiness. Cucumber, chamomile and kelp extracts help firm and tone for a look that’s wide awake and refreshed.
P.S. Something the man really need for his lack of sleep.
Launched late 2014, the Hawaiian range contains gentle but potent fruit enzymes and extracts that will give you pore-less skin!
