Welcome to the World of Mamonde 마몽드! This is all new extensive K-beauty skincare and makeup line will be landing in Malaysia very soon, that is in August 2016! The first counter will be at Aeon Bandar Utama. Thanks to Butterfly Project Malaysia for the opportunity to check out this new range of products at an exclusive media preview recently in Royale Chulan Damansara Hotel organised by AmorePacific Malaysia.
Watch what happened throughout that day and feel like you are with me!
Mamonde is really a skincare inspired by flowers, and that morning we learned about the R&D of Mamonde which covers 5 key flowers used in Mamonde formulation, flower science technologies and its floral properties. It was amazing to know the science behind the beauty of these products. Mamonde cosmetic brand offers a really wide array of skincare, and makeup products to suit every woman’s daily needs as we would soon find out. Price range is affordable too, ranging between RM6 -RM169.
Mamonde Brand Story
“Inspired by Flowers” Mamonde is a such a new brand for us here in Malaysia even though it has been around for a long time in Korea that I think more info and video like these should have a its place here so you can know more about the background and the extensive research done to create this brand.
The flower, a sign of beauty and a symbol of grace; is also magical with its ability to speak to the soul in a way which words cannot express. The blossoming flower, its colours and pleasant scent emits a natural inherent vitality and surging energy that lifts the mood and comforts the heart. But there’s much more to this extraordinary plant. AmorePacific Research Institute discovered the close relation between flowers and a woman’s beauty. Advanced research was then carried out on various flowers; from the root to its stem and petals to discover the amazing power and energy that the flowers possess. Findings reveal that flowers contain moisturising and skin-nourishing ingredients that not only provide nourishment to the skin but also moisturize and balance oil production to maintain a vibrant skin. Years of research concluded with the inception of a unique innovation and formulation that use floral extraction to re-invent beauty. AmorePacific named its innovation Mamonde, a brand that inspires feminine beauty with flowers through its flower science technology. Mamonde brings women’s beauty into a bloom by instilling the wisdom of nature found in the flowers’ vitality into their products. It aspires to provide skincare solutions for every woman so that they may radiate in blossoming beauty.
Mamonde products are basically formulated with these types of flowers that possess the following properties below. We were privileged to be one of the few to get to try them out on the spot in the World of Mamonde:
o The Honeysuckle and the Evening Primrose both have amazing vitalizing properties that help maintain healthy skin. The Honeysuckle is an absorbent plant with its ability to absorb nutrition from barren soil to deliver nutrients fast to vital parts of its plant. Similarly for the skin, the Honeysuckle delivers nutrients found in the flower to the skin for a smoother and firmer skin that is vitalised from within. The Evening Primrose contains high concentration of fatty acid and other nutrients that is essential to improve cell structure and skin elasticity. The First Energy Essence/Serum utilizes HoneySuckle as the main flower ingredient.
Moisturizing & Hydrating
o Mamonde uses Demask Rose (Rose Water), Hibiscus, Narcissus and Peach Blossoms in its hydrating and moisturising range. The Rose water is extracted with super-high pressure to preserve its amazing properties of soothing and moisturising the skin.
The Hibiscus, Narcissus and Peach Blossom on the other hand, contain natural hydrators and ceramide that offers flawless hydration.
Its resilience and other therapeutic properties help protect the skin from free radical damage and reduce the signs of aging for a youthful-looking skin
Cleansing & Exfoliation
o The Lotus Flower has the ability to cleanse and purify while providing antioxidant protection. It contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids that help exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, allowing younger cells to rise to the surface of the skin to restore a youthful look.
o The Magnolia, an ancient type of flower which has been around for more than 100 million years, has numerous medicinal values. It also has an excellent effect in skin whitening and post-inflammatory pigmentation inhibition. The Water Lily is another plant with amazing benefits to the skin which include brightening the complexion as well as soothing irritated skin.
Pore Care & Oil Balancing
o The Heartleaf Houttuynia and Sage are perfect for regulating sebum production and especially for the oily skin. Extracts of the Heartleaf Hottuynia also help tighten the pores that have enlarged and that have lost resilience. It offers instant contraction and it is also cooling to the skin.
During the launch, we also had a lot of fun creating works of art with flower petals, and the most meaningful even won the makeup range from Mamonde. For a more detailed look at the flowers used in the products, watch this video below:
For now, we are just happy to be able to use these star products, Mamonde’s newly upgraded First Energy Essence and First Energy Serum – where it acts primarily as a booster to uplift your skin, giving you an overall healthier and suppler looking appearance. The steps to use these essence and serum is a little different as they are boosters, meant to be used immediately after cleansing in order to help products that follow it to be more easily absorbed. Both the essence and serum contain Honeysuckle’s “Flower Vinegar” Complex which ensures optimal skincare results and are therefore essential to obtain beautiful radiant skin.
Formulated with the Floral Biotics Technology, both the Mamonde First Energy Essence and First Energy Serum have recently been upgraded with the antioxidant Lactobacillus that is extracted from the Honeysuckle flowers. The Lactobacillus is blended together with the 1-year-old fermented “Flower Vinegar” and claims to help with whitening, anti-aging and a firmed skin, which is what I really need now at my age. Besides that, the plant-derived Lactobacillus also helps to promote skin’s immunity, so that the skin is more protected from environmental aggressors. Finally we found that the “Flower Vinegar”, which is obtained through natural fermentation of all parts of the Honeysuckle flowers over a year, contains antioxidant Polyphenol that provides strong antioxidant effect to the skin. Both products last for a year after opening, since they are natural, they need to be used up within the year.
Both the products retail at RM119 each and can be purchased at Mamonde’s first Beauty Counter in AEON Bandar Utama this August. Stay updated on the launch later on https://www.facebook.com/Mamonde.MY/
