Beauty of Joseon
Revive Eye Serum : Ginseng + Retinal
What it is
When we lack the protein that imparts elasticity to the dermal layer of the skin, collagen and hyaluronic acid decrease, which causes wrinkles. We created an eye serum that helps to improve wrinkles on the sensitive skin around the eyes by combining ginseng extract and retinal.
From the very beginning, we knew we wanted ginseng as the base ingredient for the eye serum because there are multiple studies showing that ginseng is effective in improving wrinkles due to containing abundant amounts of saponins. Ginseng is a well-known herbal ingredient with excellent efficacy.
Vitamin A was, without a doubt, the number one ingredient we wanted to combine with ginseng.
There are two types of vitamin A used as cosmetic ingredients, retinol and retinal. Our most important task was to achieve ingredient stability and reduce skin irritation at the same time.
2% (active ingredient 0.02%) of retinal stabilized in the form of liposomes was blended into the formula so that customers can experience retinal for themselves.
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 contained in ginseng helps to quickly supply moisture to the skin and maintain 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 the history of skin care 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.
How to Use:
After smoothing out the skin’s texture with toner, pump the serum 1-2 times and apply it around the eyes or the entire face.
