Beauty Treats Draw On The Power Of Asian Ingredient

Suddenly, the world has shifted-to keep up with our constant desire for new and ever-more effective beauty products, many of the best new beauty products now contain Asian ingredients. Experts have known for years that soy has firming properties while mango hydrates and papaya exfoliates - such ingredients are common in Asian spa treatments.

But what's new is that many Asian ingredients are now being used in more high-tech ways and we are finding new ways to use previously unappreciated Asian herbs. Here's a list of Asian ingredients in


The oil of the avocado pit is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2 and B5, D and E, minerals, protein, lecithin and fatty acids, and is found in many moisturisers. You can also have avocado juice sweetened with honey as a weekly anti-ageing drink.


Tea is a potent antioxidant that fights signs of ageing. To benefit your system, drink a cup of green or white tea daily.

Mango And Pineapple

Mango extract is high in essential fatty acids. It seals in moisture, and helps soften and protect dry skin from LTV rays, so it's recommended for revitalising dry skin. Pineapple has an enzyme called bromelain with a mild peeling effect that gently removes dead cells. It also has alpha-hydroxy acids, plus soothing and purifying properties.


Orchid Oil is extracted from orchid flower and is revered in Asia for its reparative and protective properties. Orchid oil has emollient and antioxidant properties, protects skin from moisture loss and increases its immunity, hence reducing the appearance of fine lines.


Barley extract is known for its emollient, moisturising and protective effects, and is found in products formulated for delicate hair and skin.


Moisturising plum extract is rich in minerals and polyphenol, which effectively protect melanin digestive enzymes that hinder melanin production to minimise dark spots and blemishes. It also contains  vitamin C and malic acid.


Soy is rich in tocopheryl, the prime source of vitamin E, and has been clinically proven to even skin tone and smooth its texture. Research into the use of soy for skincare has also shown it has multiple benefits. It offers antioxidant moisturisation and barrier protection, and reduces discoloration, such as age or sun spots, and redness caused by acne and sun exposure.


Luscious ripe papaya is rich in vitamins A and C and has a high level of alpha-hydroxy acid. The fruit pulp is commonly used in spas to exfoliate and brighten the complexion. Try using fresh papaya pulp as a mask: Spread a thin layer on your face and rinse off after two minutes.
