Dr.Enzyme is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) soapery providing skin, body and home care products.

Taking its roots and principles in TCM, the plant-based cleansers of Dr.Enzyme differ fundamentally with common soaps. 

Dr.Enzyme cleansers are made from fermented herbs and plants, formulated according to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles to suit each product’s functions.

Dr.Enzyme’s cleaning agents are alive.

“Live plant enzymes cleanse mindfully while supporting the skin and hair’s health and balance, restoring and regenerating our natural microbiome and barrier.” 

One could be unexpectedly surprised by the delicate, subtle scent of Dr.Enzyme’s secret herb cabinet.

We offer products from personal cleansers to skin and scalp care, as well as home care, bringing an overall harmony in the experience of cleansing and revitalizing.


Dr.Enzyme’s origin dates back to 2012, when our founder Dr. Meiying Zhou began exploring plant-based enzymes as a way to create better beauty products for her TCM clients seeking skin and personal wellness treatments. She had been making her own skin and body care products for decades when she discovered the ancient practice of plant fermentation as a solution for restoring the skin's natural microbiome and barrier. She developed Dr.Enzyme to make these restorative products available to a wider audience.

Today Dr. Enzyme is a family business, bringing together expertise from New York, China, and Singapore to make curated products available to people across Singapore, all while maintaining small-batch, handcrafted plant fermentation for every product.


Dr.Enzyme cleansers are “soap-free”. Fermented soapnuts, tea seeds and honey locust form the basis of all our cleansers.

You may find these plants unfamiliar, however the Chinese civilization have used them for centuries for cleaning purposes before fat+lye-based soap began to dominate in the . We want to
bring back the ancient, natural way of cleansing, inspired by our ancestors, adapted to modern living.
