For ocean-friendly, volumized tresses: Love Beauty and Planet Clean Oceans Edition Sulfate-free Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Concentrated Shampoo

Designed to reduce harm to our planet and the oceans, the brand’s new Oceans Edition shampoo is bottled in 100 percent recycled and ocean bound plastic—some collected from the coastlines. If soft and volumized hair is what you’re after, this shampoo does the job with ingredients like ethically sourced Moroccan mimosa flower, coconut water, honey, and raspberry cassis. The concentrated formula also means that the shampoo can be produced in smaller bottles with 30 percent less plastic.

For glow and cleansed skin: Glow Recipe Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm

From the makers of the popular Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask comes a cleansing balm featuring the naturally-enzymatic fruit that is papaya. When applied onto skin, the balm dissolves quickly into a milky oil to gently remove impurities and makeup, as well as resurface skin. Made with ingredients like exfoliating papaya seed oil, papaya enzymes, papaya extract, and antioxidant-packed blueberry, the balm will leave skin feeling clean and glowy.

Meanwhile, the K-beauty inspired brand has announced that it will launch in Singapore’s Sephora on August 20.

To strengthen and protect damaged hair: Virtue Labs Recovery Shampoo

If one too many dye jobs have left your hair looking lacklustre, make a beeline for this shampoo by Virtue Labs, which works to rebuild damaged hair with each use. Ingredients like its Alpha Keratin 60ku help deposit pure keratin protein directly into hair to fill cracks in the cuticle. This process helps to repair damage from not just colour treatments, but also heat and chemicals for soft and supple tresses.
