Ee Ting is the founder and principal formulator of hop & cotton. She is a cosmetic chemist and molecular biologist.
hop & cotton was born as a result of Ee Ting’s personal struggle with problematic skin. She spent 10 years on a quest to find the solution for her skin until she conceded it didn’t exist out there.
Taking matters into her own hands, Ee Ting’s personal interest in ingredients and scientific background led her to cosmetic chemistry. What initially began as a service for close family and friends quickly evolved into something bigger by word of mouth recommendations.
hop & cotton has a cult beauty following of skincare aficionados seeking bespoke skincare solutions. Ee Ting’s firsthand experience on how skin affects people paved her unwavering commitment to providing skin solutions driven by results and not trends.
The hop & cotton experience
We do not sell ready-made products. We first establish a thorough understanding of your skin and preferences, before proceeding to formulate and manufacture the most suitable products for you.
Step One: Take The Skin Test
Start by registering an account with us. Take The Skin Test – the more details you include, the more information we will have to formulate the most suitable products for you.
We will then send through our recommendations based on your skin condition.
Step Two: Order Completion
Select the products you wish to purchase and complete payment to confirm your order. Every product will be formulated specifically to suit your exact skin needs, based on the information you provided in your Skin Test.
Step Three: Formulation
Once your order is confirmed, we will start formulation! We might contact you if we require more information on your skin.
Step Four: Review and Confirmation
When formulation is completed, we will send you the full list of ingredients we will use in your products. Please review and confirm that you are happy for us to proceed with manufacturing.
Step Five: Manufacturing
Upon receipt of your confirmation, we will start manufacturing your products!
Step Six: Delivery
When your hop & cotton products are ready, they will be sent to you. The time taken from date of purchase to order despatch is within 5 business days. The time taken for your order to reach you after despatch will depend on the country of delivery.
The 6-step process only applies to an order of a new product that requires formulation work.
For repeat orders of an identical product that has already been previously formulated for you, only steps 2 and 6 of the process are involved.
If your skin experiences any changes, update us by taking another skin test. We’ll also check in regularly with you to make sure that you are happy with your skin and bespoke formulas!
