Beauty of Joseon Revive Eye Serum : Ginseng + Retinal 30ml
조선미녀 인삼아이크림 : 인삼 + 레틴알 30ml
The loss of protein, which provides elasticity to our skin's dermal layer, leads to a decrease in collagen and hyaluronic acid, resulting in wrinkles. We developed an eye serum designed to mitigate these wrinkles, combining ginseng extract and retinal.
From the outset, ginseng was our chosen base ingredient for this serum, as it's backed by multiple studies for its effectiveness in reducing wrinkles, thanks to its abundant saponin content. Ginseng is a renowned herbal ingredient with exceptional benefits.
We were keen on integrating Vitamin A with ginseng, specifically its two cosmetic forms, retinol and retinal. Our primary challenge was to balance ingredient stability while minimizing skin irritation. Hence, we incorporated 2% (active ingredient 0.02%) of liposome-stabilized retinal in our formula, allowing customers to experience retinal's effects firsthand.
Ginseng root extract 10%
In Donguibogam, a Korean herbal medicine book, ginseng was used as an important oriental medicine and recorded as 'Shincho', meaning herb from the gods. Hwang Jini, known as the most beautiful woman in the Joseon Dynasty, used a ginseng decoction as a bath water.
The rich saponin in ginseng helps quickly supply moisture to the skin and maintains it deep inside the skin for a long time to help create healthy skin.
Retinal Liposome 2%
Retinal is a vitamin A derivative and has long been used throughout skincare history to improve wrinkles.
When vitamin A is consumed through food, it undergoes metabolic processes that transform it in the order of retinol -> retinal -> retinoic acid. Retinal, which is converted directly to retinoic acid, works faster and more effectively on the skin than retinol, which must go through the process of becoming retinal.
We used a 'retinal liposome' that was stabilized by breaking the retinal into smaller elements and enclosing it in liposomes and then adding ingredients such as natural lipids and oils. In addition, we blend ingredients such as glycerin, niacinamide, and cholesterol together to create a more effective product.
Q/ What skin types can use this product?
It works well with all skin types. However, for sensitive skin, use a small amount to give your skin time to adapt first and increase the amount slowly.
In particular, it is recommended for people who worry about reduced skin elasticity and fine wrinkles.
Q/ Can I put this product over my entire face?
A/ Certainly! You can use it over your entire face, neck, chest, etc. anywhere you need care.
Q/ Can pregnant women use it?
A/ It contains a vitamin A derivative (retinal) that pregnant women should avoid. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please avoid using this product.
Q/ Can I use it along with AHA BHA PHA products?
A/ We recommend that such products are not used together with this product as your skin may react sensitively.
Q/ Can I use it both day and night?
A/ It is recommended for use only at night.
Q/ My skin stings sometimes. Is this normal?
A/ Due to the nature of retinal, your skin may sting a bit. With consistent use, your skin will adapt over time. For sensitive skin, use it after mixing a small amount with a moisturizing cream at first and increase the amount gradually in order for your skin to slowly adapt to retinal.
