3 Chinese sustainable skincare brands that we love3个我们喜爱的国产可持续护肤品牌

Skincare is one of the biggest industries around the world.


How much do we really know about the products we put on our skin?


A lot of brands today come with big promises: removes blemishes, makes your skin more fair, cure acne and other skin impurities. Do they work? And how do we make sure our skin gets the very best and stays healthy for as long as possible?

如今,许多品牌都承诺:消除斑点,使皮肤更白皙,治疗痤疮和其他皮肤杂质。 这些有用吗? 如何确保我们的皮肤达到最佳状态并尽可能长时间保持健康?

We like to think that nature knows best, whether the cure is in the food we eat, or the ingredients we put on our skin. Hippocrates said: Food is medicine, and medicine is food. Food includes plants, flowers, herbs, natural butters such as shea, coconut and many more.

我们认为最了解一切的是大自然,无论是我们吃的食物还是我们放在皮肤上的成分。 希波克拉底说:食物就是药物,而药物就是食物。 食物包括植物、花卉、草药、乳木果、天然黄油、椰子等。

We went and looked up some of the most natural, paraben-free, soap-free, eco-friendly, waste-friendly brands out there. (We would like to put cruelty-free in the list as well, unfortunately, in China skincare products have to be tested on animals before being sold )

我们寻找了一些最天然、无对羟基苯甲酸酯、无皂、环保、废物友好的品牌。 (可惜,尽管我们希望将无动物测试列入清单,可是有相关规定,中国的护肤品必须在动物身上先进行测试,然后才能出售。

Here is the list of 3 LOCAL skincare brands we know of:



Zest Skincare offers affordable handmade all natural products. They believe nature provides already what we need for our body, and formulate products with recognizable ingredients to everyone.

Their products include: Facewash (for Him & Her), Toner, Face Oil, Beard Oil, Lip Balm (for Him & Her), Deo Cream, and many more.

Our current favorite: the deodorant cream. I purchased it, and loving it! Very smooth to apply.
