Style News: Caudalie's new anti-ageing range, Ying The Label and Risis team up


Caudalie debuts new anti-ageing range

French skincare brand Caudalie has released a new anti-ageing range of products that comes with Harvard Medical School's stamp of approval.

The improved Resveratrol-Lift line was created from a partnership between Caudalie founder Mathilde Thomas and the school's Dr David Sinclair, an acclaimed biologist who specialises in the science of ageing.

They patented a new combination of ingredients, adding vegan collagen booster to the existing formula of vine resveratrol and hyaluronic acid, which is also patented.

A known anti-ageing antioxidant, resveratrol can be found in grape skin - a tribute to Caudalie's roots, which originated in a vineyard in France. The new recipe is said to be twice as effective as retinol and to help the skin produce five times the amount of natural collagen.

The Resveratrol-Lift range comprises the Instant Firming Serum ($98), Firming Night Cream ($84), Lightweight Firming Cashmere ($82) day cream and Firming Eye Gel-Cream ($79).

All the products have fully recyclable packaging - a first for the brand.

Ying The Label teams up with RISIS to create upcycled necklaces

Local brands Ying The Label and RISIS have joined hands for a sustainable capsule of accessories.

Called Re:loop, the collection features upcycled fabric necklaces by Ying, paired with RISIS's signature orchid charms. The gold used for the charms was recycled from unused wastage, according to RISIS chief executive Verene Ng.

The necklaces, priced at $228, come in six fabric designs and four gold finishings for the orchid charm. Shoppers can mix and match the fabric and charms.

The collaboration came about after Ying founder Phuay Li Ying discovered during the circuit breaker that her tailor had plenty of uncut fabric left over. It spurred her to find creative ways to upcycle the fabrics.
