Get ready to be taken on a journey that combines Korean tradition and beauty. Queue Sulwhasoo; Korea’s leading luxury beauty brand that focuses on enhancing skin and unleashing beauty from within.
Based on timeless wisdom and ageless beauty, Sulwhasoo is a pioneering skincare brand that blends cutting edge technology with time-tested holistic skin wellness drawn from Korean medicine, combining ancient precious ingredients with modern delivery systems.
Sulwhasoo began its journey in 1966 with inspiration from thousands of years of ancient Asian wisdom on balanced beauty, reinterpreting tradition through the most advanced science in order to maximise the purity and efficacy of ingredients.
Recently, the cult brand has launched two luxurious additions to their award-winning Concentrated Ginseng line, both containing Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate™, the ingredient obtained by condensing the rich moisture and nutrients of ginseng.
Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Water
A weightless wonder that infuses skin with a complex mix of ginseng root water, honey, and peony root. A non-negotiable step in the coveted K-beauty routine, beauty waters help prepare skin for skincare products that follow. Thanks to its lightweight texture, this ginseng water sinks in instantly to replenish much-needed moisture. With Sulwhasoo’s cutting-edge technology and devotion, Sulwhasoo has infused Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate™ extracted from Korean Ginseng that has been grown for 4 years into the new Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Water. Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate™ uses the entirety of the ginseng plant ensuring skin feels firm by helping to provide moisture and deep nourishment to dehydrated skin.
How to use:
Every morning and evening, dispense an appropriate amount of Sulwhasoo Ginseng Water on your palm and use all fingers to gently spread on your face from the centre of the face and outward
Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Emulsion
A lightweight, rejuvenating gel-lotion formulated with Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate™ that addresses dryness and fine lines at the same time. Proprietary precious Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate™ is suspended in a highly absorbable gel that delivers an intense dose of moisture to visibly plump fine lines on the surface. Moisture-locking ginseng water, a heritage ingredient used by Korean women for centuries, helps reduce inflammation while replenishing deep hydration to the skin.
Layered over Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Water, it gives skin a glowing radiance. For others with dry or dehydrated skin, you may want to add an emulsion which is a traditional step within Sulwhasoo’s skin ritual. Use under your face cream to help seal in moisture. Or for those with oilier skin types or in the summer time you may use an emulsion and skip a face cream altogether. Adding an emulsion to a routine is a great way to customise your daily routine based on your hydration levels and allows for an intuitive skincare regime individualised to your concerns.
How to use:
After applying Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Water every morning and evening, dispense an appropriate amount on your palm and use all fingers to gently spread on your face from the centre of the face and outward.
