Laundrin’ Premium Fabric Softeners
This one’s actually a fabric softener, but it’s worth the mention. Complement your choice with a fabric softener that’s fit for the job. Making its debut in Singapore is Laundrin, which has championed the concept of “wearable perfume” in Japan since 2013. Laundrin uses 100% plant-derived softening ingredients, which means there’s no formaldehyde (amongst other chemicals) that causes skin irritation. This chic fabric care line is dedicated to creating gentle, baby-safe softeners that keep clothes gentle to the touch. It reduces friction between babies’ delicate skin and clothes and also has and anti-static formula for enhanced comfort and better sleep. For adults, one of the more impressive features would be Laundrin’s anti-wrinkle formula that reduces the need to iron and allows clothes to stay presentable—not to mention fragrant—all day long.
