Is there BABOR in Singapore? [2023 edition]
Some History of BABOR...
BABOR started with a biochemist's vision. Dr. Michael Babor combined water and high-quality natural oils to create an award-winning cosmeceutical product in the kitchen of his home in Cologne, Germany. He merged the ancient practice of using skincare oils with renowned techniques of hydrotherapy. Their bi-phase cleanser laid the groundwork for countless advancements in skincare. It was revolutionary in the 1950s; today it is legendary.
BABOR has since been acquired by the Vossen family. To date, its headquarters in Aachen are still operated by a family-owned dynasty. It is one of the world's most popular skincare brands and is used worldwide by more than 100,000 beauty experts. At present, the cult brand is present in more than 70 foreign markets and is represented in salon spas, dermatology clinics, hotel chains, cruise ships and airlines.

Any skincare routine begins with cleansing. Skin cleansing is one of the first steps to skin care and therefore, it should be performed properly. In fact, BABOR has dedicated an entire range of its skincare line just for this! Their CLEANSING Line uses the unique bi-phase cleansing method to thoroughly cleanse the skin in two successive steps.

BABOR HSR LIFTING
Aging is a process that elicits mixed emotions. Some signs appear in subtlety, while others demand grave attention. For the most part, early monitoring with topical treatments is the first line of all-natural defence. HSR Lifting range is an anti-wrinkle and anti-aging line suitable for all skin types. It counteracts the most significant causes of the development of wrinkles: the reduction of volume and elasticity, the deceleration of the metabolism of the skin and the hardening of the dermal matrix.
The SKINOVAGE range is their premium skincare system that is individually customized by an epigenetic process to give the skin exactly what it wants. Epigenetics is a wide field of science that belongs to biotechnology. EpigenTech Power Peptide has been formulated as the key active ingredient in the BABOR SKINOVAGE range.

It is particularly excellent for tired skin in need of immediate regeneration.

I HAVE ALLERGY CONCERNS!When changing or introducing new products to your skincare regimen, it is normal to feel apprehensive, especially if you have sensitive skin. While many skin care business touts themselves as organic, not all can guarantee gentleness and efficacy. Even formulas derived solely from natural ingredients can cause hypersensitivity reactions when they are not formulated for optimal PH. In addition, not all-natural brands are tested by medical professionals during R&D and are fine-tuned to ensure that they are safe. Natural ingredients that are subjected to years of scientific study are used in BABOR products. At BABOR, a team of dermatologists, biochemists, and physicians ensure that all products can deliver effective results with high skin tolerance.
