Core competence

Skincare Product Research

Powder dispersion technology
Dispersion technology enables lightweight application while protecting moisture by realizing optimal conditions for the tone-up cream’s powder -based ingredients to be dispersed.
Emulsion manufacturing technology for increased absorption
This technology allows effective delivery of active ingredients to the skin by creating an emulsion that resembles the structure of the skin.
Emulsion manufacturing technology that stabilizes hard-to-dissolve ingredients
This technology allows effective and safe delivery of active substances that are difficult to be absorbed by the skin.
Acne Skin Relief Cosmetic
Certified as functional products for acne prevention and treatment by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety. These products contain technology that delivers salicylic acid, known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, in a safe and stable lamella structure.

Makeup Product research

Production of stable, skin-cover makeup with diverse finishes
Marble-type formula that enables long-lasting coverage with a natural finish. Multiple skin coverage products available.
Multicolor cushion foundation
Multi-color filling technology that places two or more colors in a single container while keeping the colors separate with a clear distinction.
Transfer-Proof tech
Makeup technology that does not smudge or transfer. Coats the skin with a coating agent to increase adhesiveness and duration of makeup application.
WC 300
Developed nationally, the key ingredient in WC300 is a functional powder created from blackcurrant that harnesses its antioxidant function.
HT Pigment
Increased UV protection and easier application by combining inorganic powders. TiO2 molecules of different sizes are combined to provide maximized coverage and UV protection.
