SANDAKAN: The Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia Berhad is helping five Bumiputera entrepreneurs in Sabah to develop cosmetic products from natural resources.
SIRIM Berhad Sabah general manager Khairon Untoh said today that the products were made from natural resources easily available in the state such as honey, hill rice, seaweed, cinnamon and ginger.
The rice-based cosmetic products were already in market while the others
were in the packaging stage, he told reporters after launching an introductory
biocosmetic and natural products programme.
Khairon said that SIRIM had a programme to help Bumiputeras venture into the cosmetic products industry. – Bernama
