Meet Après Avant!

We love how businesses bring people together.

Chuin Wei, the founder of Après Avant, has been a Perk by Kate customer for quite a while now. When she contacted me to find out more about the bra recycling initiative we do, we decided to meet up and get to know each other a little better. We hid out at a quiet cafe, and the 2 hours I spent with her was most interesting. She not only gave me tips about lip care, fascinated me with her quest to discover the best shampoo for sensitive scalp, I was also thrilled by her tales of adventures to some of the most obscure parts of the world, finding out how natural ingredients are grown and processed.

Chuin Wei started Après Avant out of her curiosity for reading ingredient lists in the products that she used. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with what she was using. And she became conscious of how her own purchasing behaviour impacted herself and the environment.

After that meet-up, we decided to work on a beauty kit together for our friends, which has finally come to fruition. And now, we have 50 beauty kits to give away! :)

In this beauty kit, you will get to sample:

  • Lip balm from Akar, made using natural ingredients sourced from the Tibetan plateau.
  • Good Medicine Goddess Glow body cream, which combines rejuvenating natural ingredients from plants that thrive in a wild desert landscape into a luxurious body cream, safe for even pregnant and nursing ladies.

We wish we could do more, but as small businesses ourselves with limited resources, we can only give away the beauty kit to the next 50 orders above S$150. We hope to do more for you next time :) Beyond this and more importantly, if you are keen to support another local small business, enter "PERKS" at for a cart discount.

Thank you for supporting small businesses!
