Enter the Taiwanese Beauty Alliance, a team of 12 of Taiwan’s most distinguished and well-known beauty brands put together in 2016 by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council with one mission: to bring Taiwanese beauty to the world. These homegrown Taiwanese beauty brands pride themselves on using advanced technologies in medicine and biotechnology to manufacture effective, environmentally-friendly, and safe cosmetic products.

With a mission to “beautify women throughout from head to toe and from inside out”, Arwin has been making rose-infused beauty products since 1982. All the roses used in their products are harvested from their very own rose garden, which also happens to be the largest rose garden in Taiwan and has become a tourist attraction all on its own! Arwin’s Biochem Rose Rejuvenate Essence, a hydrating essence infused with rose extract and gold flakes, and Multipurpose 3-in-1 Cleansing Mousse are their best-sellers.
