About

SO GOOD : The Story

We make beautiful, small batch, handcrafted skincare : BEAUTY WITH A PURPOSE

How we came about
So Good began in Hong Kong out of a lifelong struggle with bad skin and search for solutions. Living in a generally hot and humid, it is a fairly challenging environment for maintaining good skin. The humidity outside, and dry air conditioning indoors, high pollution levels and environmental stressors all take a toll on us with the humidity creating a breeding ground for germs.
With skin just bad enough to be annoying, it kept us trying new products, we tried pretty much anything that was recommended or advertised.

Finally with a too large and growing collection of cosmetics & skincare products which didn’t work and a general belief in the strength of natural ingredients we turned whole heartedly to plant based alternatives.

So Good Botanicals came about in the spare bedroom of a Hong Kong apartment.

All our formulas are created by us and tested on us, friends, family and real people. We never test on animals – they don’t really care about skincare products…


BEAUTY ACITIVISTS

Like almost everyone we had bought into the oil free/ fat free culture and it wasn’t working for us – neither in diet nor in skincare. We only ended up with dry, greasy, ashy, high maintenance skin.

To fix this we took a different approach - skincare that’s high in healthy fats. Instead of starving our skin into submission our approach is TLC.

We believe problem skin needs more care & more nourishment. The products we had been using stripped our skin of all healthy fats. What we bring are products which are very high in natural antibiotics, antifungals, anti oxidants and natural vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. This combination has brought us very successful results in tackling skin issues. It has brought us healthy, stronger skin with the ability to fight off every day stressors.


OUR BELIEFS:
Only natural and organic ingredients
Zero synthetics
Zero Petrochemicals/ Petroleum derived products
Absolutely No Animal Testing, Cruelty free products
Thoughtful packaging
Transparency – you will always know what you are using with our products
Always striving towards improvement


PHILOSOPHY: PLANT POWER
We believe in beauty from the earth. The ability of pure plant based ingredients in giving us truly natural, beautiful and fresh looking skin.


WHY NATURAL AND PLANT BASED PRODUCTS:
Less processed plant based ingredients have an abundance of natural Vitamins, fats and other goodness for our skin. It’s worth the extra effort that goes into using them and the result is amazing luminous skin.

We wanted skincare that performs, nourishes our skin, making it stronger from the inside out.
Our ingredients are of the purest nature, carefully chosen for their therapeutic abilities, food grade plant oils and botanicals. We use no fillers, all our ingredients are ‘active’ and selected thoughtfully. We wanted the best going into our products and going on our bodies.

STORING SG SKINCARE PRODUCTS

We recommend storing our products away from heat, moisture and direct sunlight. It is made of purely natural, highly perishable ingredients. To get the most benefit out of your So Good product use them regularly, as directed, use spatulas for all our products which come in jars. Avoid water or external contaminants from getting into the jars.
This will help all SG products stay in great shape and continue to work their magic.
For example: in Hong Kong its very humid, don’t store it around the bathtub as there is a chance there’s mold near the bathtub and chances of water getting in.

THE SHOP SAYS ONLY 1 ITEM AVAILABLE, WHAT IF I WANT MORE?

It's the way etsy lists the products. We produce in small batches and are happy to sell them in larger quantities. Please contact us directly and we can ship it to you.

WHY SO GOOD:

Our products are beauty with a purpose - designed to target skin worries and issues. They are beautifully handcrafted with thoughtfully sourced, minimally processed natural, food grade and organic ingredients. We choose to follow a truly natural philosophy to help us source the purest ingredients and formulate the best products we possibly could.
Our ingredients are all 100% biodegradable, natural and organic, we wanted something that would work magic on our skin without hurting the environment. Our products are formulated with beautiful skin in mind, they are Gentle on Skin + Tough on Skin Problems.

ARE SG PRODUCTS TRULY NATURAL?

Our philosophy is 100% plant sourced ingredients and all our products are suitable for vegetarians.

WILL SO GOOD PRODUCTS HELP MINIMIZE PORES?

Our products are designed to keep skin clean, healthy, fresh naturally. Large pores are usually on dry skin (even oily skin can be extremely dehydrated) and skin with impurities clogging it so the pores can’t close and the skin can’t breathe. Regular use of our products cleans and softens the skin, if there is nothing packed into the pores they ought to start shrinking. Remember to always cleanse and moisturize your skin, even after a big night out. Use sunscreen everyday especially if you use scrubs and exfoliants. Wiping your face with antibacterial wipes is not enough and at times can push bacteria deeper into pores.

OUR ROUTINE FOR CLOGGED PORES/ BLACK HEADS/ WHITE HEADS/ BREAKOUTS

• Cleanse your skin every night before bed time.
• Use Godmother diligently along with Formula 5 till the breakouts minimize.
• Use a face scrub/ mask (like Cocola) regularly to clear skin out.
Godmother and Formula 5 must be used regularly till breakouts are at a minimum. They are powered by plant oils and butters which have great antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant properties – use it anywhere on your face and body where you feel vulnerable

WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR WITH USING SO GOOD PRODUCTS.

Our skin got much better from using So Good products. Our creams are great at helping skin soften, moisturize and heal. What we did see happen in a few instances is the skin pushing out a lot of impurities, debris etc. For the first few days it pushed out a lot of black heads/ white heads etc. We recommend starting on the skincare routine not right before an important date or function, give it atleast a week and perhaps more depending on the current skin condition. For those of us who visit the spa/ salon start the skincare routine a week before so you get rid of a lot of the impurities during a facial, otherwise use an exfoliating mask like Cocola, use our products diligently to help the skin regains its healthy glow.
