Tulin.Asia : Pure Organic Beauty Options

Tulin.Asia : Pure Organic Beauty Options

072A8670

There aren’t many natural and organic beauty products back then but today, you will notice that there’s a booming number of beauty companies who invested in producing natural or vegan-friendly beauty products for the growing number of eco-conscious individuals all over the world including Singapore. Although they market it as a ‘natural’ or ‘organic’, some aren’t pure. When I said ‘pure’, I refer to beauty products which are made with naturally-derived ingredients only and has zero added artificial chemicals. They are not only ‘clean’ with their ingredients but they are also coming clean with their sources and packaging. Going green isn’t just about using natural biodegradable products. It also about showing kindness to both our own human race and the environment. Are the ingredients purchase from Fairtrade sources who pays their workers fairly? Are they employing sustainable methods to obtain their raw materials? That is your choice of beauty products really counts.

With so many available options out there, where could I get my ‘pure’ products and at the same time supporting eco-conscious companies? Three friends in Asia has come together to source for such natural and organic beauty products and have made it even more accessible for us living in Asian to have access to high-quality artisanal brands which are handcrafted in Australia.

Tulin is derived from a Bahasa word which means “pure”.

Tulin.Asia works with brand owners who are strong advocates of living naturally, environmentally conscious by using recycled packaging and ethically-sourced ingredients. They strive to keep their prices are also affordable so that everyone could enjoy such luxurious green products.

On their website, you will find a list of their curated hair, skincare and bath products which ranges from brands like Erica Brooke, earthYARD, Mokosh, Banksia and Kelapa Organics. I’ve been into DIY skincare and hair products lately so I needed some essential oils work with and I was glad that Tulin.Asia does offer a range of premium essential oils by earthYARD. As I have not been able to work out a DIY shampoo formula, I am still sticking to ready-made shampoos.

In my loved curated box (which is heavily but pleasantly scented with Geranium), I have my set of Kelapa Organics products, earthYARD essential oils and Banksia diffuser which I was pretty excited to give it a try.

Kelapa Organics 

Organic Coconut Oil Shampoo ( Size: 250ml, Weight: 285g) (SGD 28)

  • Vegan-friendly
  • 100% Certified Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
  • Australian-made
  • For all hair types
  • Free from Sulphates, Parabens, Artificial Preservatives, Synthetic Fragrances, Artificial Colours

The three key ingredients in this shampoo are coconut oil, aloe vera and coconut water. All three were great for both hair and scalp. It looks like the formula has a really thin consistency so I thought it might be watery. But to my surprise, the formula is quite viscous – almost like a gel-based moisturiser. Because it’s quite viscous, I could dispense the shampoo easily from the bottle without having to worry if it might just spill out of the bottle if I tilt the bottle too much.

Most organic shampoos don’t tend to foam up well as it doesn’t have lacked that surfactants but this shampoo does foams up slightly which made my scalp feels ‘cleaned’.

The scent of the shampoo smells amazing too – far from the scent of that distinct coconut smell which some might not exactly fancy it.

Ingredients:

Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Purified Water, Coco Glucoside, Organic Guar Gum, Organic Coconut Water, Vanilla & Almond Extract, Citric Acid, Organic Vanilla Oleoresin, Organic Glycerin, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Sandalwood Essential Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Oat Extract.

Organic Coconut Conditioner (Size: 250ml, Weight: 292g) (SGD 28)

  • Vegan-friendly
  • Australian made
  • Free from Sulphates, Parabens, Artificial Preservatives, Synthetic Fragrances, Artificial Colours

This formula of the conditioner resembles coconut cream. It’s very creamy but unlike the real coconut cream, it is thankfully not that oily. Coconut is great for the hair but you wouldn’t exactly want to soak your hair with coconut oil as the oil molecules are too large to be able to penetrate into our skin. So, in one way or another, we might have to rely on science to get the best out of this nourishing organic coconut oil.

Australian Kakadu Plum Extract is one of the main ingredients in this conditioner. It is the world’s richest natural source of Vitamin C and it has anti-bacterial properties to maintain the health of our scalps. This makes the conditioner scalp-friendly and it could be applied all over the hair, even at hair sections near the roots.
Ingredients:

Purified Water, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Organic Argan Oil, Glyceryl Caprylate, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Organic Vanilla Oleoresin, Vanilla & Almond Extract, Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Sandalwood Essential Oil, Organic Kakadu Plum Extract, Organic Green Tea Extract.

Banksia Medium Scent Pot (SGD22+)

There aren’t much information online about these exotic Banksia scent pots or how to exactly use it. These make great gifts for eco-conscious individuals like myself because it is something which I could keep reusing it for a really long time. It is also sustainable as it doesn’t require electricity to diffuse the scent.
These Banksia scent pots were made from seed pods of the Banksia tree which are commonly found in Australia. This handcrafted aromatherapy accessory, for pure essential oils, is 100% natural, using a plant-based finish (no chemicals used in the process). The seed pot itself is porous so it could easily soak up the essential oils and allows the fragrance to diffuse through the seed holes.

To simply use it, you will need to remove the cork from the top of the scent pot and fill up the hole with 10 to 15 drops of organic essential oils. You don’t have to pull so many drops of essential oil as some of the oil might seep through the seed pot. For the mini scent pots, you can go with 5 to 10 drops of essential oil.

It might take a few days for the scent to seep through the seed pod and for the scent to be diffused throughout the room. It is recommended that you keep filling the pod with your desired scent over a few days until you can smell the scent from the pot itself. If you would like to change the essential oil, leave the pot to dry out for about two weeks before using another natural essential oil.

It looks so beautiful! I would definitely keep this with me for a lifetime.

earthYARD essential oils

This Australian-owned brand of essential oils brings you the freshest and purest oil they could get from the farmer. The oils are certified organic. Comparing with the ones I bought from other online sources, these essential oils have got a really strong scent. The pricings of these essential oils are considered rather affordable considering that it is a 25-ml bottle which is slightly bigger than the essential oil bottles which I own.I got Geranium because I like its calming scent; Clary Sage because I am planning to use it to make a hair tonic for myself.

It is best to purchase the purest essential oils you can get because the effectiveness of the oil in bringing wellness to your body depends on the quality of the essential oils and the plant species. Essential oils should not be ingested on contrary to popular belief that it can be ingested since it is pure. Essential oils are concentrated with active plant bio-actives and it should not be applied directly onto the skin as some of the essential oils may cause burns.

Geranium (SGD 26)


earthYARD Certified Organic Geranium Oil is extracted from plants grown in Egypt. It’s sweet powdery floral scent makes it a wonderful relaxant. I love to fragrance my room with this scent. 

Clary Sage Oil (SGD 37) 

earthYARD Certified Organic Clary Sage Oil is extracted from the leaves of the plants grown in France. It has an uplifting scent and it is great for balancing hormones.
Ylang Ylang Oil (First Grade Certified Organic) (SGD 25)

Ylang Ylang has an exotic, deep and sweet floral scent which works great as a middle or base note in perfumes. It warm lingering scent produces a calming and soothing effect in us.
