Hanbang, snail, propolis, bird’s nest and more! Here are some of our favourite products that feature the ingredient stars of Korean beauty.
You may have heard of some of the more unusual (but really effective!) ingredients for which Korean Beauty is well known - snail, propolis, royal jelly, birds’ nest or bee venom, for example. But that's really just the tip of the iceberg. Korean Beauty companies are well funded to investigate the best new ingredients.
However many sheet masks also incorporate some of Korea's oldest traditional and natural medicines to support healthier skin. Products that utilise traditional natural ingredients - which can include ginseng, green tea, rice, bamboo and flower extracts - are known as ‘hanbang’ products and are fast becoming cult beauty items in Korea.
We’ve got you covered with some of our favourites.
