The cult K-beauty range is big on traditional botanicals and skin results
What is Beauty of Joseon?
Beauty of Joseon is a Korean skincare brand that has gone viral on a global scale. Loved by skincare enthusiasts from all over the world, this brand has taken the international beauty space by storm and its range of botanical-based heroes are now as loved for the story behind the brand as they are for their results-driven, good-skin formulas.
What makes K-beauty’s Beauty of Joseon so coveted?
Beauty of Joseon formulates its products with herbal ingredients used since the Joseon Dynasty, which ruled Korea for 500 years. The Joseon women focused on creating flawless skin rather than covering up with makeup and they counted on a highly effective list of botanical skincare ingredients to do just that. Today, as a modern beauty brand, Beauty of Joseon, pairs these traditional skin-savers with low doses of active ingredients to supercharge their formulas. The result is a lineup of clean, cruelty-free and affordable cleansers, toners, exfoliators, essences, serums and creams that will become your new tried-and-trusted skincare staples.
