Green Plum Refreshing Toner : AHA + BHA
What it is
Our skin goes through a turn-over process of repeating cell regeneration and exfoliation every 28 days. During this process, if the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface clog the pores, inflammation may occur in the pores causing a darkening of the skin tone by preventing new cell regeneration.
BoJ created a light and mild toner that can wipe away dead skin cells and sebum in the pores and on the surface of the skin that can remain after cleansing.
The main ingredient is plum, which has been used as an herbal medicine for a long time. As a cosmetic ingredient, plum helps to remove dead skin cells and care for skin texture. It creates wonderful synergy with mung bean extract, a skin soothing ingredient, and the chemical exfoliants AHA and BHA.
Daily Exfoliating Toner
Green Plum Toner is ideal for use in the morning and evening during the first step of skin care to wipe away residual waste and smooth out the skin texture. After sufficiently moistening a cotton pad with toner, gently wipe the skin from the inside to the outside. It not only cleans up waste but also enhances the skin condition to facilitate better absorption of follow-up skin care products.
Green plum water 25% + Mung bean extract 2%
Donguibogam, an herbal medicine book from the Joseon Dynasty, states that plums lower the temperature, ease the mind, and help stop thirst and diarrhea. In Korean history, plum and mung bean were used as medicines to treat stomachaches or rid the body of toxins.
Plum water and mung bean extract as skin care ingredients help to smooth out skin texture and provide moisture.
AHA + BHA
With a mixture of 2% glycolic acid and 0.5% salicylic acid, you can use it every morning and evening to remove dead skin cells without irritating your skin. It is made with a mild formula that combines a low concentration of chemical exfoliants and plant extracts rather than attempting to create powerful effects via overly high concentrations of AHA and BHA since cosmetics are not categorized as drugs. This is because we believe that it is important to constantly monitor and care for the condition of the skin without causing irritation.
How to Use:
After cleansing in the morning and evening, moisten a cotton pad and gently wipe the skin from the inside to the outside. Or, you place a sufficient amount on the palm of your hand and dab lightly to absorb.
