When it comes to East Asian skincare, Japanese and South Korean products are the most well-known in the market, however, the global reputation of Taiwanese skincare has been steadily rising in popularity in recent years because of its emphasis on natural ingredients, advanced technology and time-honoured traditions.
Taiwanese beauty, more commonly known as T-Beauty, has captivated industry experts and skincare enthusiasts because of its innovative, highly effective and simple products. Taiwanese brands have a clinical focus and feature powerful active ingredients to help people achieve their best complexion and brands are continually pushing boundaries and looking to advance their skincare formulas so they’re the best in the world. T-beauty has also had a huge influence on the world’s love of face masks which are that popular in Taiwan, they can be found in convenience stores, not just in beauty stores.
As an East-Asian-owned brand that is headquartered in Dubai and produced in Taiwan, in this blog post, we wanted to celebrate some of our favourite T-beauty skincare brands and tell you exactly what it is about them we love.

Taiwan’s holistic approach to skincare, drive to blend traditional wisdom with scientific innovation and commitment to natural and clean formulas has revolutionised beauty standards and is what inspired us to create our highly effective range of East Asian quality facial masks. We’ve worked closely with a renowned skincare laboratory in Taiwan to consciously create, develop and produce rich hydrating facial masks so we can bring East Asia’s most loved product to the Middle Eastern region and give people access to the powerful rejuvenating benefits of sheet masks.
