The use of a serum is undeniable — it’s that extra step in a skincare regime that, without exaggeration, transforms your complexion. Born in Santa Monica, Ceramiracle’s First Light The Serum was created a single question in mind: how, or why, do babies have such naturally “flawless” skin?
Ceramiracle’s founder Eugene He is a Singaporean-born skincare enthusiast that made it a point to discover if it were at all possible to regain baby-soft skin for all skin types. Learning about the naturally-occurring vernix caseosa that protects babies in their womb, Eugene’s next step was to attempt recreating it. Successful at that, Eugene’s labs were able to create a cocktail of 95% active ingredients and 99% natural ingredients that mimics the essence of the vernix. It’s the world’s first beauty product inspired by the vernix caseosa, as you can imagine, and celebrities like Felicity Huffman and renowned makeup artists. In fact, Eugene recommends mixing a few drops of the serum with your foundation to get a look his celebrity acquaintances have already created for the red carpet.
Pairing with the serum is another product from the same range: the First Light Essence. This one is formulated with Ceramiracle’s BFE Complex (BioFerment Essence) – a saccharomyces fermented trinity of organic Korean rice water, mugwort, and ginseng. Just a few drops pre-serums improves the skin’s hydration levels whilst also slowly working to banish blemishes.
We were introduced to the First Light range of products in conjunction with International Beauty Day, over afternoon tea at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Incredibly passionate about his products, Eugene talked about his idea of “prejudice-free beauty” and how these vegan, cruelty-free products were created not to empower a certain type of complexion, but rather to help all types of skin and ages.
He shared, “Many in the world continue to be swept up by superficial and fleeting beauty, but as a brand and as its founder, we stand by the belief to make beauty ageless.”
Local TV personality Aishah Sinclair was also invited, and shared her thoughts on the importance of inner beauty and Ceramiracle’s philosophy of prejudice-free beauty. “Society today has conjured up a definition of beauty that is so far-fetched and unattainable to the point where it has led many impressionable young people to believe that that is all there is. However, I believe that what makes a person beautiful is not just what’s on the surface, but what’s underneath.”
For your own afternoon of feeling beautiful, Ceramiracle has a beauty cafe located at 6 Jalan Datuk Sulaiman, TTDI. Eugene highly recommends trying out the signature Celebrity Medifacial, and we certainly do too.
