Put your money where your mouth is.
What is the best way to achieve healthy skin? Skin food. And by that, we mean REAL food.
In Singapore and across Asia, there is a growing focus on holistic approaches toward health, lifestyle and wellness. The benefits of natural, edible beauty are no longer an afterthought.
Cosmetics are defined as external substance or preparations placed in contact with various parts of the human body (e.g. lipsticks on your lips, mascara on your lashes) with the intention to change their appearance, protect them or keep them in good condition (Health Sciences Authority 2017).
With consumers becoming increasingly knowledgeable of toxic chemicals in traditional cosmetics, this is particularly important to take note of. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, facilitating the exchange of fluids and gases with its external environment. Much of the daily makeup that we brush atop our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream.
As such, it makes perfect sense to put our money where our mouths are. Read on for the top 3 interesting ingredients you didn’t know are in Liht Organics’ edible makeup products in Singapore, and why they are so good for you (and the environment)!
Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Powder
It’s easy to pronounce, and it’s even easier to find in your vegetable cooler. Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Powder is indeed the dehydrated, crushed roots of the humble carrot. Carrots are incredibly rich in the antioxidant Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) — responsible for its bright, vibrant orange hue — and Vitamin B. Vitamin B comprises eight “sub-vitamins”: B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. These Vitamin B complexes work perfectly in tandem in our Liht Organics’ natural, edible makeup to promote healing and repair for healthier skin!

Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Powder
Energise your peepers naturally with the Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Powder that you’ll find infused within our Infinity Lash Mascara. Oh yes, there’s really coffee in our mascara! Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Powder is the dehydrated and finely
milled derivative of the coffee plant, an evergreen shrub classified under the genus coffea and part of the botanical family Rubiacae. Arabica is highly sought after for being the only coffea of the highest quality. As such, you can truly rest assured when coating your lashes with ourInfinity Lash Mascara. With high-quality, high-performing ingredients in our organic and natural makeup, it’s safer than ever to wake up and make up!
Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla)
Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) is a species of the Vanilla orchid that is well-renowned for its high vanillin content. Extracted from the vanilla bean, it possesses an exceptionally fragrant scent — making it a common source in many forms of edible vanilla flavourings. Vanilla is also rich in antioxidants, which helps to protect our delicate skin from free radical damage and even prevent and reverse skin damage. This delicious ingredient is also a strong anti-microbial agent, providing great topical relief for even the most sensitive
The best news? We’ve bottled all the nourishing properties of this delicate, beautiful ingredient! One pump of the lightweight, yet buildable Youth Elixir Liquid Foundation is enough to combat any signs of aging. And yes — it smells like freshly baked vanilla cupcakes, too!
These 3 edible beauty ingredients are only the start of our many skin-loving ingredients in all our cosmetics at LiHT Organics! We even enjoy conducting classes and workshops where we encourage our participants to have a “taste test” of our edible cosmetics — a true testament of how edible and safe they are!
