OLUMES Uses the Power of Bornean Botanical Extract for Skin Problems like Maskne

This brand’s ethically sourced and fragrance-free Refining Lotion and Satin Cream get raving reviews from Malaysian users, magazines, and online publications.

Many Americans today suffer from maskne, the type of acne people get from wearing a mask. But apart from acne, people living in the US also battle with several other skin problems. These problems include rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. OLUMES, pronounced as oh-lu-miss, a Malaysian skincare brand, knows how difficult it is to deal with skin problems daily. As such, the company introduces to America its brand of vegan, cruelty-free, ethically sourced, and fragrance-free skincare solutions with a top-secret ingredient from the forests of Borneo.

Founded in 2020, OLUMES features two products – The Refining Lotion and The Satin Cream. The brand began when one of the founders’ grandmother, a Kadazan Dusun, shared her age-long beauty ritual. The Kadazan Dusun people in Malaysia are famous for their flawless skin. Their secret is Kalalit water, which they use to cleanse their skin. Kalalit water is an exotic botanical extract that comes from a native tree in the South East Asian region. This discovery eventually led to the establishment of OLUMES.

OLUMES means beautiful in the Kadazan-Dusun people’s native tongue. Its founders believe that its products’ multi-functional feature helps solve many skin problems of people today. Hence, its products are ideal for people who find it very challenging to do the popular Korean 5- or 10-step skincare routine. The brand’s multi-tasking capability is made possible by brazilin, an active ingredient found in all of its products, including the two flagship products of OLUMES – The Refining Lotion and The Satin Cream. Studies showed that Brazilin has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It’s known to be a potent anti-photo aging agent too.

OLUMES The Refining Lotion has anti-aging peptides and prebiotics that promote skin elasticity. It also contains gentle exfoliating ingredients to give its users a smooth, glow-up look even without the barely-there makeup. Once applied on the skin, it’s quickly absorbed because of its lightweight property. It also has Centella Asiatica extract that helps soothe redness and lightens the skin.

The brand’s The Satin Cream, on the other hand, boasts anti-aging peptides to pump up the skin’s collagen production to reduce the look of wrinkles, fine lines, and pores. It also has magnolia stem cell extract that balances the skin tone to give its user a brighter skin complexion. Like The Refining Lotion, The Satin Cream is light on the skin and produces semi-matt finishes that also will control sebum throughout the day.

OLUMES now has other products targeting various skincare problems. It has Brightening Cream, to visibly diminish pigmentation; Botanic Bio Placenta Serum, which targets scars; the Gel Cream Hydrating Illuminator, for hydration and instant glowing effect; the Clarifying Toning Lotion, to smoothen bumpy skin; and the Self Foaming Protein Cleanser, that gently cleanses the skin.

As a clean beauty brand, OLUMES veers away from using mineral oil and other 1,600 harmful cosmetic ingredients in its products.

Apart from providing people with natural skin solutions, OLUMES also cares for the environment. The brand donates a portion of its product sale to the Save The Rainforest movement, a non-profit organization that promotes global environmental education. The company also gets its ingredients from sustainable local sources.
