Our Story

This skincare journey was started in 2014 by Teresa Foo with a goal to provide comfort and relief to her then young son's Atopic Dermatitis skin issue. Her passion had led her to create gentle yet effective skincare using plant-based ingredients. 

Balm Botanique is a natural beauty brand focused on using botanical ingredients with efficacious actives to create functional plant-based skincare. We believe in creating products that are multi-purpose and you only need the essentials to maintain a healthy skin barrier. Less clutter in your skincare routine and more time spent on other meaningful tasks. 

Our Values

  • Plant-based, Vegan-friendly and cruelty-free ingredients

    The core of our products are plant-based cosmetic ingredients. Naturally-derived ingredients and safe synthetics are incorporated for a well-formulated effective product. We also use certified organic ingredients (COSMOS, ACO, USDA) in our products. As a vegan-friendly brand, our raw ingredients and finished products are never tested on animals.

  • Bottling science and botanicals

    Our aim is to create efficacious products with clinically researched botanicals and safe synthetics. We source botanicals and synthetic ingredients (lab created which require less resources and energy) and use them to formulate well-rounded skincare. 

  • Love for Asian ingredients

    As an Asian brand, we are proud to incorporate effective and evidence based Asian ingredients in our products.
