KUALA LUMPUR, 23 November 2021 – Mangosteen is a homegrown social enterprise offering luxury body care with a socially conscious edge. This Southeast Asian inspired lifestyle brand puts people, product, and the planet at the forefront of what they do. Formulated ethically and produced locally, the From Skin To Soul range draws inspiration from the scents and ingredients of the region. The collection consists of body and hair care, with each product carefully curated to give you everything you need to recreate a luxury spa experience in the comfort of your home. As a bonus, all of the products in the range are made locally- ensuring that it’s the best of what the region has to offer.
With people at the very forefront of every decision the company makes, Mangosteen believes that gender equality is key to strong societies. Mangosteen aims to empower women with knowledge, education, and opportunities so that they would be able to lift entire communities along with them. As such, 100% of profits from Mangosteen’s products go towards empowering women and children in Southeast Asia. Over the years, Mangosteen has worked with various NGOs and has donated more than RM130,000 to Dignity for Children, a school for refugee and marginalised children in Sentul. Their most recent partnership is with WAO (Women’s Aid Organisation), and they aim to raise RM 15,000 through it.
If you have ever bought a product but felt a little unsure about whether or not it was produced ethically, Mangosteen is here to change that. Mangosteen products are the socially conscious luxury upgrade to your self-care routine that you’ve been looking for. All of the products in the From Skin to Soul range are formulated ethically and responsibly, 100% vegan and cruelty-free, as well as free from parabens, phthalates, SLS/SLES, EDTA, DEA, MEA, and Mineral Oils. Additionally, Mangosteen’s products help support the empowerment and development of women and children in Southeast Asia.
“The wellbeing of women is central to the health of a family and a strong and thriving society. Every dollar spent on improving the lives of women in poverty translates into exponentially improved outcomes for their children. From Skin To Soul is an opportunity to care for our physical well-being with the best formulations available, as well as our spiritual well-being, knowing that our purchase makes a difference to the life of a woman or child in need. From our small beginnings in 2013, we have been able to support 5 refugee children through 5 years of school. Last year we worked with Orang Asli women to produce hand sanitizers, providing much-needed employment in the midst of the pandemic,” says Dato’ Kathleen Chew, Founder of Mangosteen.
Mangosteen believes that daily personal care rituals should be enjoyable — a way to carve out some much-needed downtime in your hectic routine. The From Skin to Soul range features intoxicating scents and luxurious textures because we truly want to give you something to look forward to in your daily routine.
