If you’re already eating organically and your nails are designed with non-toxic nail polishes, then you’re inner Gwyneth will be thrilled to know that you can now shop all-natural skincare products down on Batu Bolong. Isha Naturals started out with a small stall at Old Man’s and Samadi Sunday markets and now they’ve opened a flawless looking apothecary store selling all sorts of locally handmade lotions and potions without any unnecessary parabens, additives or chemicals. We’re pretty sure you’ll love everything like we do.
You know that saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? Well Isha Naturals has definitely got a very eye-catching cover. Everything from the impeccable black and white diamond shaped tiles on the floor to the white subway looking tiles feels like you’ve stepped into a perfectly curated Instagram feed of eco-beauty minimalism. And that ceramic sink, just perfect to try out all the products and wash your hands.
Then there’s the packaging. When it comes to beauty products, we totally judge by the packaging. You almost can’t help it, right? We just love their clean, modern almost lab-style labels. And when you glance at those perfect rows of countless bottles covering the shelves, it’s hard to resist the temptation to buy every single item.
And they have it all. Colourful handcrafted bar soaps (perfect for gifts), face serums, hair masks, body scrubs, skin oils, body butters, mineral clay masks, castile soap, essential oils, natural candles and so much more! When we say this is a one-stop shop for all your skin woes, we mean it. All their products are vegan friendly, cruelty-free, made with scrummy essential oils but without any pore-clogging mineral oils so it’s la creme de la creme. Top on our list is their Shea Loves Me body butter to help feed your skin, their magical Facial Elixir (love the rose buds) and their multitasking 3 in 1 Head 2 Toe castile soap.
This homegrown beauty brand has definitely put a little red dot on the global map.
