Cute dance routines, catchy lyrics, and heartwarming dramatic dialogues – sure, these captured our attention as the Hallyu Wave took over the world by storm. What ignited our curiosity, however, is how these Korean stars maintain their ever-youthful and dewy glow. This is how Korean cosmetics, not stepped into, but created its limelight.
First off, the basic thing about Korean beauty routine: it is all about the skin. Koreans take the quote “beauty is skin-deep” quite literally. To have a good and healthy skin is to be beautiful. What better way to achieve a naturally gorgeous skin than to use natural products?
The noticeable shift to natural ingredients in Korean beauty was brought about by consumers’ need for worry-free products that will not compromise their skin in the long run. With natural beauty products, consumers are guaranteed a gentle pampering, but with strong and effective results. From this, hypoallergenic and guilt-free Korean beauty and skincare brands rose to popularity. One of these is Botanic Farm.
Botanic Farm is a line of beauty and skincare products that are derived mainly from nature and are farm-grown. The products range from basic skincare like cleansers and sunscreen to makeup removers and skin balms. If you want to be assured that all products are made from natural grains, plants, and flowers, then Botanic Farm just might be the brand for you!
Rice and salmon eggs make amazing sushi and kimbaps, but little do we know that these mouth-watering ingredients also do wonders for our skin. One of Botanic Farm’s most innovative products, the Rice Ferment First Essence uses lactobacillus or rice ferment for an all-around gorgeous skin. It brightens complexion, smoothens wrinkles, evens out skin tone, hydrates, softens, and a lot more. Meanwhile, the brand also utilizes other ingredients that we would never have dared put on our skin before. For example, the Salmon Egg Hydrogel Eyepatch, which is enriched with salmon egg extract and snail slime, removes dark circles around the eyes and restores radiance. This lightweight and soothing patch also improves the elasticity and brightness of your skin, allowing you to finally say goodbye to tired eyes. This product definitely snails it!
If you love avocados in your salad, you would love it on your skin as well. This line is rich with avocado and honey – literally. The line’s avocado honey rich products such as the avocado honey rich water balm cream and the avocado honey rich serum energizes skin and improves moisture. It also comes in toner and lotion that immediately brighten skin, while maintaining its moisture. See, there’s a reason why it’s called avoca-do and not avoca-don’t. What are you waiting for? Avoca-do try it!
However, beyond its innovative and exciting products and ingredients, Botanic Farm stands by Four Promises: a) Natural; b) Recycled; c) Organic; and d) Quality. As part of its ecological philosophy, Botanic Farm uses recycled fabrics for its masks and patches. Further stretching its tenets to provide an all-natural and ecologically-friendly line, even its marketing materials and packaging are printed with organic soy ink. How guilt-free can you get?
Botanic Farm proves that it is possible to go green and protect the environment, while producing high-quality products with an affordable price tag. The line boasts of dozens of must-try goodies, proving that some ingredients are not just satisfying in your body, but also on it. If beauty can go gourmet, then Botanic Farm is the way to go.
