Thought Leader and Style Entrepreneur Marion Caunter Launches New Beauty Business More is More by Mare


Options: Congratulations on your recent launch of a line of vitamins to top it all off. Tell us about it.
Marion Caunter: To be honest, I’ve wanted to work on hair products for a while. It seemed like the most natural progression…from starting my first hair salon, Hairplay, to this one. After receiving and listening to feedback from customers as well as friends and followers on social media, I realized there was a need and demand for hair care that extended far beyond visits. regularly in the salon. On a personal level, I found myself losing more hair than usual during the lockdowns of the past two years. I don’t know if it was stress, hormones, aging (I turned 40 during one of the lockdowns) or just that I had more time to pay attention to those details, seeing as we we were all stuck at home.

So this seeded the idea for the business?
Yes. I realized that my body was probably lacking in essential nutrients. The pandemic years seem to have exacerbated my hair issues and part of me wanted to do something – not just to help myself, but to help others who were also going through what I was going through. So I decided to team up with Puteri Zarith, who has years of experience in the wellness and beauty field, to create the right formula that promotes hair growth and maintenance. The result is Mare – More is more hair vitamins. It’s basically a botanical drink made from berries and peaches formulated with biotin, saw palmetto, and multivitamins, all of which support healthy hair growth and maintenance. All it takes is one sachet, mixed with room temperature or chilled water, then shaken and drunk – I like it best when served chilled. That’s all we can say about it.

How did you come up with the name?
I felt like the whole world could use a lot more of everything right now, honestly… More kindness, more love, more compassion, and yes, more hair (laughs). More is always more in my books, so it seemed like the perfect brand name.

Where can the product be found?
It is available online via the Mare website as well as authorized commercial agents and selected points of sale. The approved list can be viewed on the website. I must add that this is a product proudly made in Malaysia, lab tested and most importantly approved by Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia.

Are there any plans to increase the product range soon?
We are currently working on it. I can’t say exactly what yet, but I can say that we hope to roll them out in the near future.

You also travel frequently for work and pleasure, but you always look perfect. Tell us what your essentials are on the road.
I never leave home without my curlers, running shoes, headphones, extra phone charger and a really good book.

What’s always in your purse?
Sachets of my More is More hair vitamins, lip balm, perfume, breath mints, cell phone, hand sanitizer and a spare face mask.

Who are your all-time favorite style personalities?
These are personalities who have never been afraid to be themselves. Who comes to mind? Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Anna Wintour. Rihanna and JLo are always pushing the envelope and Anna is such a style icon. Her signature sunglasses and love for printed dresses are unapologetic. And I love that about her.

Do you have a favorite style tip to share?
Above all, never leave your home without sunscreen! Also, don’t listen to what other people say about your personal style. That’s why it’s called that. You just did. Wear what makes your heart sing and puts a spring in your step. When you feel good about yourself, it will show!
