All Hakuhodo brushes undergo a hair selection process in which craftsmen manually comb hairs to remove imperfect hairs (missing hair tips, kinked, crooked, wave, split etc.), resulting in extremely soft brushes made of the finest hairs with uncut natural tips.
Unlike other brush manufacturers which use machines to cut hair bristles to the same length, Hakuhodo uses a patented technique to manually arrange them into the desired shape.
No cheap fillers are used. These superior brushes are made of hairs from a variety of animals such as white goat, weasel, blue squirrel and water badger.

- World’s Greenest Shampoo
A-Vinz Pte Ltd (Booth H1130)
When it comes to being green, it’s hard to beat O’right’s range of eco-friendly shampoos. Not only is it fully biodegradable, but it also gives back to Mother Nature.
Using a patented process, Taiwanese brand O’right’s latest Tree-in-a bottle shampoos have seeds embedded at the bottom of the bottle. Once you’ve finished using the shampoo, rinse the bottle before planting it in a pot. Then watch your garden come to life.
The shampoo contains only natural ingredients to nourish the scalp and hair without the addition of harsh chemicals such as phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, sulphates, DEA or artificial colourants.
Its Tree-in-a-bottle shampoos are available in Green Tea for normal hair and Golden Rose for colour treated, damaged hair. To complete the treatment, apply Golden Rose Oil which is made using selected Golden Rose essential oil and water-soluble silicone to repair cuticle scales and restore hair’s glossiness.
Like its shampoo, Golden Rose Oil comes in O’right’s latest innovative “Floral Box” which is embedded with seeds. Bury the paper box in soil, water it daily and watch the seeds sprout as the box slowly degrades.
- Bird’s Nest Beauty Products
Wei Her Pte Ltd (J1110)
For centuries, bird’s nest has been regarded as a precious delicacy reserved only for royalty and the wealthy. Bird’s Nest is known for its numerous health benefits and proven source of nutrition. It is also valued for its ability to rejuvenate the body and famous beauties in Chinese history were said to have owed their beauty and youthful skin to consuming bird’s nest.
Taking its cue from this centuries old belief, Singapore company Dermal Formula has developed a range of beauty products containing high quality bird’s nest essence which can be more easily absorbed by the skin than edible bird’s nest which may contain macro-molecules too large to be absorbed by the small intestines.
Calling itself “Nature’s Fountain of Youth”, Dermal Formula’s range of Yan beauty products includes moisturising essence, cleansing foam, BB cream, eye serum and revitalising ampoules for younger, smoother and firmer skin.
- Mood Gel Polish
P.N.C Singapore Traders Pte Ltd (Booth G1151)

Overseas Chinese Trading Pte Ltd (Booth K1150)
