Oat-based skincare products can be helpful for those with eczema and sensitive skin due to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of oats. Oats which contain compounds called avenanthramides, have been shown to reduce inflammation and irritation in the skin. In addition, oats are rich in beta-glucans, which are polysaccharides that can help to soothe and moisturize the skin.

So when ASIS-TOBE arrived in Singapore, we just to give their products a try. In the pursuit of the minimalist skincare philosophy of clean and healthy skin, ASIS-TOBE products only use gentle ingredients. All their formulas are dermatologically tested and certified.

The brand hopes to provide eco-friendly and hypoallergenic skincare products for a person’s daily skincare routines. Starting from humble beginnings in 2016, ASIS-TOBE has since moved into departmental stores in Korea, USA, China and Japan, and e-commerce in Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Amazon USA, all within five short years. Their growing popularity can be attributed to their commitment to high quality ingredients at an affordable price point, while using eco friendly, clean packaging.

We literally tried their entire range, and here is a quick look at each of them:

pH Balancing Gel Cleanser

This is a mild, hypoallergenic cleanser with panthenol to maintain the protective barrier on the skin to keep it moisturised. This is a good one for all skin types, and especially if you have dry and sensitive skin.

AHA Purifying Toner

This is one of our favourite products, as we noticed an immediate improvement in our congested skin after using it for one one day. Also known as “ A vacuum for the skin”, this toner which has 1% AHA, is ideal for night time use. It exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells for a brighter, less congested complexion. It is suitable for all skin types and is suitable for daily use.

Hyaluronic Essential Toner

This is also a firm favourite, and it’s no surprise that it was also the top product on Glowpick for 16 weeks. Hyaluronic acid and Beta Glucan works together to provide a three-step hydration by restoring the skin’s protective barrier to keep skin moisturised. Acts as both an essence and toner to provide an anti-wrinkle function.

We like to combine it with a hyaluronic acid serum, to further lock on the hydration on the skin, and recommend everyone include this product in their daily skincare routine.

Fresh Relief Moisturiser

This light weight, non-sticky hypoallergenic moisturiser helps maintain the skin’s moisture-oil balance. Containing a plant-based formulation with 11% Centella Asiatica extract, it soothes and moisturises irritated skin. Perfect for those with textured, acne-prone, and troubled skin.

Marine Collagen 81 Serum

With collagen derived from fish skin, marine collagen has been clinically tested and proven to improve skin suppleness and elasticity by 22-23% after the first use. Niacinamide provides a whitening and anti-wrinkle function. This serum is used to keep skin youthful and firm, and can even be used in place of a primer.

Aqua Boosting Cream

This fragrance-free cream plumps up the skin upon application, and stimulates the skin’s natural hydration process which boosts the skin’s water channel (aquaporin) activation, making it a godsend for those with dehydrated skin.

Rose Infusion Cream

We love all things rose, and this rich moisturising cream made with rose essence provides the skin with deep hydration. Suitable for those with more mature or dry and dull skin, it contains organic argan oil, and makes for a wonderful night cream.

Oat Bean Nourishing Cream

Made from oat and soybean embryos, this cream has a high concentration of ingredients that helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier, making it especially beneficial for stressed and irritated skin. It’s free from artificial fragrances with a natural woody scent, does not leave a sticky residue, and is suitable for all skin types.

Pure Mineral Sun Cream

This cream-based physical sunscreen is made with 100% minerals to reflect harmful UVA and UVB. We love that it is EWG Green verified, making this sunscreen absolutely reef safe. The plastic tube is also made of eco-friendly materials, making it easy to recycle or repurpose.

Daily Derma Solution Mask

This is a lovely soothing and moisturising mask that contains bamboo water for maximum hydrating effect. The mask sheet is made with naturally derived cellulose-based materials to provide the best fit for the face, and is a great bi-weekly treat for stressed and dry skin.

Green Tea Moisture Sunblock

You can now soothe and protect your sensitive skin comfortably with this super gentle sunscreen. The product leaves your skin feeling fresh and moist all day with no white residue. It is also hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. But do note that it leaves your skin glowy, so if you prefer a more matte-look, this might not be for you.

All In One Cleaner

This is a body wash and shampoo for your bub. Made with key ingredients DERMA CLERA® + Jirisan Complex-1TM, this cleanser helps to prevent skin inflammation and enhances your baby’s skin moisture barrier to keep their skin soft and supple. Since we don’t have a baby, or a partner at the time of trialing the products, we used it on ourselves and our skin was very happy.

Soothing Gel

This cooling gel was formulated to soothe irritated skin. Made with key ingredients DERMA CLERA® + Jirisan Complex-1TM, it helps to prevent skin inflammation, and works as a rash eraser and even a pimple cream. This is something that we think that everyone should have on hand, for those times when your skin acts up.

Mild Lotion

We really love the texture of this lightweight moisturiser made with skin repairing DERMA CLERA® + Jirisan Complex-1TM for powder soft skin. If you have dry or dehydrated skin, you can use this product as a facial lotion, and lock in all the goodness with a thicker moisturiser.

Ultra-Barrier Cream

This is a nice and non-sticky moisturiser that protects your skin against dryness, pollutants and air-borne irritants. Made with key ingredients DERMA CLERA® + Jirisan Complex-1TM to create moist conditions necessary to promote healing and growth, it also contains anti-bacterial properties to promote healing and skin renewal. We would recommend this for use at night, when your skin is prone to dryness from Aircon use.

All the ASIS-TOBE boxes have been redesigned in off-white box that is made out of organic materials like sugar cane packaging with soybean oil printing. So do give their products and try, and let us know which ones are your favourite.
