Forest Rhapsody 自美國加州，創辦人CJ 成長於一個愛好大自然的家庭，她的童年時光與大自然密不可分，喜愛花時間與植物，草藥和鮮花相處；她曾因懷孕期間反復飽受激素導致的囊性痤瘡困擾，許多日常用護膚產品更加深了各種皮膚問題：例如失去彈性、容易敏感、對許多成分產生不良反應。 CJ 很快發現自己需要尋找更安全、簡單的護膚替代方案。她將過去對植物的全部知識加以運用，為客人製作了一系列主打植物生物活性成分的Forest Rhapsody 護膚系列。

“ I always had an affinity to nature. As the daughter of an ardent nature lover, my childhood was spent outdoors among plants, herbs and flowers, creating tinctures and elixirs. This curiosity extended well into my adult years as I dabbled endlessly in DIY creations. Yet it was not until I was expecting my daughter that this side passion evolved into a full-time commitment – Forest Rhapsody Skincare.
My pregnancy was marked by volatile bouts of hormonal cystic acne, and many of my skincare products were shelved because they were aggravating my skin condition. Post pregnancy, my skin simply lost its resilience – it was easily sensitized and reacted to many ingredients I was previously using. I soon found myself oscillating wildly between multiple harsh actives and overly simplified formulas.
As I sought gentler alternatives to the traditional actives I had been accustomed to up till that point, I intuitively turned to nature for inspiration – using plant-based bioactives was without doubt, the optimal solution.
In formulating this collection, I wanted to shift the conversation from instant results, to one that celebrates the gradual revival and sustenance of happy and healthy skin. My guiding principle is not about how many actives I can cram into a formula, or how high a percentage the formulas can reach. This capsule collection focuses on using key plant-based bioactives, optimising their performance with other proven ingredients, and allowing these key actives to take centre stage in a formula.
I was always taught that every plant has a story behind it – its purpose in the environment, why and how it co-exists with other plants, and most intriguingly, how it benefits us. I listened. I learned. And now, I gather all my knowledge, past and present, to craft this capsule skincare collection for you.”
