Charlene Ng is an aesthetician, beauty consultant, and skincare trainer with a CIDESCO Diploma in Beauty Therapy. Charlene started her own baby skincare brand in 2019 when her son reacted adversely to an organic skincare brand. Due to her son’s eczema condition, he was only able to use products prescribed by the doctors, which Charlene realized consisted mainly of synthetic ingredients and with heavy textures that were unsuitable for Singapore’s tropical climate. The brand’s name “A Tapir’s Tale” came about when Charlene noticed how the lower portion of the tapir which was white resembles a baby’s diapers. The brand mascot features the Malayan tapir allowing Charlene to pay homage to the brand’s Southeast Asian roots.
The skincare collection uses nature-derived botanicals like Sakura Leaf Extract, Green Tea, and Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract. It also contains other skin-loving ingredients like Aloe Vera, Centella Asiatica, and Jojoba Oil.
