Launch of Canvas Beauty at Takashimaya

I was invited to attend Canvas Beauty’s launch of its new retail outlet at Takashimaya, Ngee Ann City in Singapore.

Canvas Beauty is an Australian skincare and beauty brand that entered Hong Kong and China with some success. Now, it is launching in Singapore. Canvas Beauty has a range of aromatherapy, skincare and body care range that uses Australian certified organic ingredients.

During my visit to the Takashimaya retail space, I was introduced primarily to their aromatherapy range which is 99% or above certified organic. There are a total of 36 essential oils to choose from and over 20+ in-house aromatherapy blends that aim to remedy most common ailments like headaches, abdominal cramps and even athlete’s foot.

A couple of interesting points on this brand’s retail aromatherapy offerings are:

Complimentary custom blend samples to take home

For every purchase of their luxurious carrier oil (no matter 100ml or 300ml), you are entitled to blend your own aromatherapy concoction with the use of their range of essential oils using their in-house recipe for free!

Let me explain this a little further. Assuming you buy one of their carrier oils (there is a choice of six different oils such as grape seed oil, pure sweet almond oil or organic avocado oil), you can take your newly purchased carrier oil and go to their central counter. From there, you can choose what blend you want to make. You will be given a choice of application and blend recipes.

I choose to do the bottled essential oil blend for Stress. The formula states: Choose 1 carrier oil (which you will use the one you purchased) and 3 essential oils for a total of 5 drops. In my case, my carrier oil was organic sunflower and I chose to blend the essential oils of grapefruit, frankincense and majoram.

Viola!! 10ml of carrier oil + 5 drops of essential oil = my own sample custom blend to take home.

Big on essential oil education

It would be hard to miss the extensive display of Canvas Beauty’s essential oils. But what is interesting about this display is when you get closer, you can lift the block of your selected essential oil and read the back. Each block has a description of the featured essential oil. It also highlights who needs to avoid that particular oil.

If you are on the look out for pure essential oils for your aromatherapy needs, this is not a bad place to start. Their extensive range of oils is designed to cater to everyone and for most common ailments.
