A Conversation with Dr Isabelle Yeoh, Founder of FOREST MD
Skincare enthusiasts in Singapore are always on the lookout for effective, natural, and affordable products that cater to their unique needs. Enter FOREST MD, a skincare brand that combines the power of botanical ingredients with a commitment to clean beauty and accessible luxury.
In an exclusive interview with Dr Isabelle Yeoh, the founder of FOREST MD, we delve into the brand’s inspiration, its differentiating factors, and how it aligns with the current skincare trends in Singapore.
Harnessing Nature’s Potential: FOREST MD’s journey began in 2009, aiming to enhance post-treatment care and maximize the results of aesthetic treatments. Driven by a belief in the regenerative power of the skin, FOREST MD sought to tap into the potential of botanical and nutrient-rich skincare. Their commitment to using gentle yet potent botanical ingredients distinguishes the brand, providing natural and nourishing formulations that promote overall skin health. By avoiding harsh chemicals and common irritants, FOREST MD ensures its products are suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.
Cruelty-Free and Clean Beauty: FOREST MD proudly holds the 100% cruelty-free certification from PETA, reflecting their philosophy of kindness towards animals, the environment, and overall well-being. The brand firmly believes in the power of plant-based ingredients to deliver satisfying results without causing harm or animal suffering. This commitment to cruelty-free practices aligns seamlessly with their overall philosophy of healthy living and clean beauty.
Unveiling the Anti-Ageing Glow Set: FOREST MD’s Anti-Ageing Glow Set combines years of experience and expertise to offer transformative results. The set consists of three key products, each carefully formulated to benefit the skin. The Hydraing Soothing Essence, infused with Tremella Mushroom, Hyaluronic Acid, Chamomile, and Ginseng, provides deep hydration and nourishment while amplifying the effectiveness of the skincare routine.
The Stem Cell Sleeping Mask, with ingredients like Apple Stem Cell extracts, Vitamin C, Peptides, and Swiss Garden Cress, rejuvenates the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Finally, the Muru Muru Age-Defy Cream, enriched with Muru Muru butter, Snow Algae powder, and Cactus stem cells, deeply hydrates and promotes a brighter, more youthful complexion. Clinical trials have shown significant improvements, including reduced fine lines and wrinkles, plumper skin, improved clarity, and enhanced resilience against environmental stress.
Incorporating FOREST MD into Your Skincare Routine: For those starting to take their skincare routine seriously, Dr Isabelle Yeoh advises determining your skin type and seeking professional advice to address specific concerns. Starting with the basics and gradually adding products like essences, serums, and sleeping masks can elevate the skincare routine and promote healthier, balanced skin. FOREST MD’s Essentials Set is a perfect option for beginners, offering gentle cleansers, high-performance moisturizers, and UV protection. With the brand’s focus on multi-tasking products, FOREST MD simplifies skincare routines, providing convenience without compromising efficacy.
Exciting Upcoming Launch: FOREST MD is thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of their Asta Collagen Jelly Serum. This innovative serum, formulated with Astaxanthin and Niacinamide, serves as an all-in-one anti-ageing serum, firming mask, brightening treatment, and eye gel. With powerful ingredients like astaxanthin, niacinamide, Centella asiatica extract, madecassoside, and ceramides, this game-changing product offers anti-inflammatory benefits and addresses concerns such as breakout-prone, irritated, and sensitive skin, promoting clarity and stability.
Aligning with Skincare Trends in Singapore: FOREST MD’s approach to skincare aligns perfectly with the trends in Singapore. Consumers are increasingly seeking skincare products sourced from natural ingredients, free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. The brand’s focus on gentle and sensitive skin-friendly solutions, its range of multi-tasking products, and lightweight formulas that suit the humid climate of Singapore make FOREST MD an ideal choice for those seeking effective, nature-inspired skincare.
Finding Effective Skincare: With a vast array of skincare products on the market, finding effective ones can be challenging. Dr Isabelle Yeoh recommends conducting thorough research, reading reviews, understanding ingredients, and conducting patch tests to observe how your skin responds. Each individual’s skincare journey is unique, so it’s essential to be patient, pay attention to your skin’s reactions, and make adjustments accordingly. Seeking guidance from skincare professionals can also help in finding products best suited to your needs.
