Bali-born skincare brand debuts at new SocietyA pop-up
Get a touch of Bali in Singapore, with the launch of Bali-founded Fields of Yarrow at Asian multi-brand fashion and beauty retailer SocietyA.
Founded in 2017 by French expatriate Souhela Ferrah, the brand offers a comprehensive range of flower- and plant-based skincare and body care.
Growing up with a pharmacist father and a great-great aunt who practised healing through herbal medicine, Ms Ferrah was influenced to tap the natural world when starting her own skincare brand.
There is something for every skin need. Using ingredients found mainly in the Indonesian archipelago, the products range from cleansing balms and facial mists to perfume oils and a Face Serum Stick ($59) that can be rolled right onto the face.
Prices range from $43 for a lip balm to $75 for a hydrating face mask. The brand also offers a range of beauty tools crafted from tiger’s eye gemstone (from $51 to $90).
Fields of Yarrow has a boutique and facial studio offering treatments in Canggu, Bali, and Singapore marks its first international outpost.
A selection of products is available exclusively at SocietyA’s new pop-up, which runs until April 30. A first for the retailer, the pop-up has curated an array of beauty and lifestyle products.
Check out other Asian brands such as Thai skincare label Mellow Naturals, South Korean natural soap brand Hanahzo and home-grown botanical beauty brand Forest Rhapsody.
Also new is SocietyA’s first in-house product – a candle series of six scents ($49 each) inspired by the rituals that mark the beginning and end of each day.
Fields of Yarrow is available at fieldsofyarrow.com and Pop! by SocietyA, which runs till April 30, at 03-08B Ngee Ann City, 391A Orchard Road
