Our Story

As babies and young children, we have flawless skin. The trouble begins when we hit puberty. While some of our peers continue to breeze through life with problem-free skin, it was a different story for us. However, that’s when the adventure of our lives began.

Our experimentation efforts started when we could not find sustainable and workable skincare solutions for our skin anywhere beyond marketing hype. Being desperate, we tested with herbs and plants. With unwavering patience after repeated disappointments with plant extracts and formulation failures, combined with an extraordinary dose of serendipity, our skin finally cleared up.

We came to realize the power, as well as the potential, of natural plants and herbs on solving skin issues at a fundamental level, when combined correctly and synergistically to return skin to its original pure state. We also found the answer we are looking for that remains our core belief till today: skin purity.

That was the year 1991.

For nearly three decades, we continue to research, experiment and create formulas that we could confidently use at every stage and season of our lives. Our team grew as we employed greater sophistication in our technologies and techniques; we have since incorporated state of the art nano-technologies and bio-engineered bio-actives ingredients, synergistically formulated into our products.

Regardless of our age, we want our skin to look its best every day: Skin Purity. Any Day. Any.

Our Values

Our values are encapsulated in our brand name, Recherché.

We are dedicated to relentless research and development because we believe the best is yet to be.

We believe skincare formulas are not just about ingredients, as ingredients are just ingredients on their own, but how these ingredients are put together. That’s why synergy is the very core of our R&D principle – where the effect is greater than the sum of its parts.

We believe skincare ingredients work best and your skin benefits optimally when the formula contains no unnecessary ingredients like synthetic colors, synthetic fragrances, alcohol, parabens, formaldehyde-forming preservatives, and silicones. Minimum ingredients, maximum benefits.

We believe pure formulas nurture the skin and help restore the skin to its pure, pristine state.

Our Belief

Skin Purity: Any Day. Any Age

We are born with pure, pristine skin. Over time, with exposure to pollutants, chemicals, oxidation, and hormonal changes, our skin deteriorates. We aim to restore skin to that original, purest state, so at any day, any age, skin is pure like that of a new born baby.
