We have eliminated all potentially harsh and sensitivity causing ingredients from our formulations such as alcohol, synthetic colours and fragrances, camphor, menthol, peppermint, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, etc as well as certain pore clogging oils and waxes, silicons, etc.  Advanced scientific technology is added to nature’s beauty equation.  When the two elements are blended in completed synergy, you get a holistic skincare range that works effectively for all skin types. Nobody has a perfectly dry, oily or normal skin but rather tends to have a T-zone oilier than the rest of the face. Therefore, you may adjust the amount or number of products you apply according to your skin’s needs

Even though your skin is oily, it still needs to be moisturized otherwise your skin will overcompensate by secreting more sebum, hence making it even oilier. The key lies in the amount of moisturizer you apply. If your skin is oily, just use less.

Recherche products do not contain potentially harsh and sensitivity causing ingredients such as alcohol, synthetic colours and fragrances, camphor, menthol, peppermint, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, etc as well as certain pore clogging oils and waxes, silicons, etc. Hence, it should be suitable for sensitive skin. However, as the causes and range of skin sensitivity vary widely, we cannot guarantee our products suit all sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend that you do a 24-hour patch test on your skin before proceeding to use the products on your entire face.

Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse and Revitalising Tonic are suitable for teenagers with problem skin. In the near future, we will be launching our acne/blemish care products made from natural botanicals. These would be suitable for young skin as well as they do not contain harsh or irritating ingredients.

Yes, Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse is an ultra-gentle but extremely effective foaming cleanser for removing excess grease, impurities and make-up.  Used alone, it is powerful enough to remove most make-up (except waterproof mascara). For eye make-up such as waterproof mascara, we would recommend that you use a separate eye make-up remover specially formulated for the eye-area. If you wish to remove make-up with Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse, we recommend that you use 2 to 4 pumps more than the usual amount, depending on how heavy your make-up is. Massage in upward-outward motions for at least a minute, ensuring all skin area is covered. Rinse off thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel.

Dampen skin; pump the dispenser once or twice to dispense the cleanser onto your palm.  Massage onto your face in upward-outward circular motions.  Make sure you cover every part of your face.  When massaging over the eye area, please ensure that the cleanser does not enter your eyes.  Rinse off thoroughly.  Pat dry with a clean towel.

Recherche Revitalising Tonic uses pure herbal extracts, hydrosols and active ingredients which are good for your skin.  A quick glance at other brands’ face tonics will reveal that the main ingredients comprise water, alcohol, a very tiny amount of plant extracts perhaps, fragrance and colour.

The reason why most dermatologists advise against using face tonics, especially for individuals with sensitive skin, is because most brands’ face tonics are nothing more than water, alcohol (very drying and harsh on the skin), synthetic fragrance and colours (main causes of allergic reaction and skin irritation).  However, quite a few dermatologists have approved their patients’ use of Revitalising Tonic as it contains ingredients which are clearly beneficial to the skin.

That is one of the worst myths in skin care!  Alcohol is not the solution to acne or oily skin.  On the contrary, alcohol can aggravate these problems as the skin tries to overcompensate for the loss in skin moisture (due to alcohol) by producing even more oil, thereby exacerbating the problem.  Long term use of skin care products with alcohol can lead to skin irritation, dryness and other unpleasant problems.

Generally Nourishing Skin Cream is recommended for anyone from the age of 25.  As the saying goes, “prevention is better than cure”.  Anti-aging programme should start during early adulthood while the skin is still youthful.  This may help to avert the onset of early skin aging.  It is great for individuals in their 30s through advanced age as it helps to optimize the skin’s capacity to remain healthy and youthful.

No.  Protective Hydrator is a light-weight water-based sunscreen designed for daily wear.  For heavy sports and swimming, you should use a water-proof sunscreen.

Yes, you need to apply Protective Hydrator to protect your skin against the damaging effects of UV rays which are present also in places where there is artificial lighting and where the sunlight streams in through glass windows. Also, Protective Hydrator shields your skin from the damaging effects of blue light emitted from computer screens and mobile phones.

Yes.  Not only for men, but for boys as well!
