The group and Edible Garden City essentially distil the essence of these plants, then work with a Singapore-based laboratory to create the products over a six-to-nine-month period.

Well, this is is already happening with Spa Esprit Group’s new venture. Called Farm To Beauty, the brand launched two products last week — A Cool Aloe Cooling Gel and Om, Calendula! Calming Cream — with its main ingredients harvested from the rooftop of Raffles City.
Farm to Beauty actually took root (literally) when Spa Esprit Group’s chief executive Cynthia Chua met Edible Garden City’s founder Bjorn Low, and was amazed to find that urban farming is possible in Singapore.
They partnered up to launch a 10,000sqf rooftop in Raffles City one-and-a-half years ago, and today, it is flowering with more than 1,600 herbs and plants across 16 varieties. No pesticides or chemicals are used in the farm, keeping it as organic and natural as possible.
“We want to send a powerful message that farm-to-beauty is possible in Singapore,” said Chua.
