Asia has long been known as a destination for all things beauty, with brands like Shiseido, Tatcha, and Glow Recipe. Now Taiwan has given us a new ingredient that we didn’t know we needed in our lives: Deep-sea water.
What is deep-sea water?
As the name implies, it is water from the deep part of a sea or ocean. Deep-sea water is a rare and natural resource that is beginning to be utilized in a variety of Taiwanese products.
SH-RD, a Taiwanese hair-care brand, which has gained acclaim developing a line of incredibly fragrant, ultra-nourishing hair care products featuring rosemary and D-panthenol, recently launched their SH-RD Protein Cream: Gold Deluxe Edition, a luxury leave-in treatment combining actual gold leaf with deep-sea water sourced from the Eastern waters of Taiwan, along with their signature blend of rosemary and D-panthenol. The cream adds rich, organic materials to the scalp, strengthening follicles, stimulating hair growth, and leaving hair ultra-light and soft to the touch for hours.
In addition to innovative product developments like the use of deep-sea water, here are some more reasons to start shopping “Made in Taiwan”:
1. The country is agriculturally rich
a. Compared to its Asian counterparts of South Korea and Japan – the country of Taiwan is very agriculturally rich. This allows for the country to use products that are grown in its backyard to produce their products.
2. The country has long manufactured your favorite brands
a. Taiwan has been no stranger to cosmetics manufacturing. It has been both formulating and manufacturing for many international beauty brands for decades. Since Taiwan has become a leader in medical technology in Asia, this has helped drive skincare brands to perfect their advanced formulations.
3. The culture is rich
a. Did you know that Taiwan was the first country to legalize same-sex marriage? Did you know Taiwan was recently ranked 8th within Asia in last year’s Mastercard Index of Women Entrepreneurs? Taiwan is a beautifully progressive nation that has been fighting for many people’s rights and equality – a great reason to support and shop those creating products from Taiwan.
