With tragic events like the burning of the Amazon rainforest and the melting of Antarctic glaciers happening, it has become more important than ever for us to try and reverse the damages we’ve caused the Earth. But it’s all easier said than done. As individuals, we can only really do little acts to protect our home. One way to do our part is by supporting bigger organisations that fight for the Earth. Luckily, more and more brands are pledging to help the environment in their own ways. For one, there’s Chantecaille who recently unveiled their Fall 2019 Makeup Collection and partnered with different environmental charities to support animals in danger of extinction.

LUX Luminique, one of Japan's top haircare brands, launched its newest Botanical Cleanse series in Singapore last 21 to 23 August 2019 at their pop-up booth in Tanjong Pagar Urban Park. Known for their vow to make bathing a multi-sensorial experience for women, the brand's new release promises an at-home spa-like indulgence.

The products in the LUX Luminique Botanical Cleanse series

The LUX Luminique Botanical Cleanse series comes in two variants to fit not just your olfactory's preference, but also your hair and scalp needs. Choose the Floral Cleanse: Happiness Bloom shampoo and conditioner if you want to deal with frizzy hair or reach for the Herbs Cleanse: Oasis Calm shampoo and conditioner if oily scalps and dry ends are your woes.

All the products in the line contain Kaolin Clay, one of the mildest and purest of all the natural clays present in the current beauty market. Kaolin Clay provides thorough cleansing without drying or damaging the scalp and hair. It also promotes great blood circulation to stimulate the follicles and aid healthier hair growth from roots to tips. 

Aside from the power of Kaolin Clay, the products are also paraben-free, silicon-free, and do not contain artificial colourants and other harmful additives. Plus, Lux Luminique products also apply as a rich, creamy lather that delivers a luxurious hair detox experience at the comfort of your own bathroom. Did we mention they come in some pretty neat pump bottles, too?
