Fancy skin-balancing and rejuvenating precious molten metals in your skincare?
German beauty brand Julisis - which taps on ancient alchemy to formulate its range of gold, silver, copper and platinum-infused skincare products - is now available at the Beauty-i pop-up store (B1-25/26 Scotts Square, tel: 9234-3940). Its celebrity fans include the Jolie-Pitts, Madonna and Heidi Klum.
The brand was founded in 2003 by Mr Julius Eulberg, who was tired of products filled with synthetic chemicals that do not work for his skin. Its products are manufactured in alchemy labs in Germany.
Besides fermented precious metals - created in huge vats and stirred according to the cycles of the cosmos - the formulas are also made with medicinal plants, such as marigold and jojoba, and bee by-products such as propolis and bee pollen.
These are sourced from a biodynamic farm near the Italian Alps. The brand's bestsellers include the Eyemulsion eye cream and Gold Emulsion Day moisturiser.
Julisis products are free of synthetic chemicals and suitable for all skin types. Prices start at $152 for a bottle of gold and neroli-infused toner.
