Beauty of Joseon. Revive Eye Serum: Ginseng + Retinal
We created an eye serum that helps to improve wrinkles on the sensitive skin around the eyes by combining ginseng extract and retinal.
Vitamin A was, without a doubt, the number one ingredient we wanted to combine with ginseng.
Two types of vitamin A are used as cosmetic ingredients, retinol and retinal. Our most important task was to achieve ingredient stability and reduce skin irritation simultaneously.
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.
30ml (1 fl.oz.)
HOW TO USE
From the beginning, we knew we wanted ginseng as the base ingredient for the eye serum because multiple studies show that ginseng is effective in improving wrinkles due to abundant amounts of saponins. Ginseng is a well-known herbal ingredient with excellent efficacy.
Ginseng root extract 10%
In Donguibogam, a Korean herbal medicine book, ginseng was used as an essential oriental medicine and recorded as 'Shincho', meaning herb from the gods. Hwang Jini, the most beautiful woman in the Joseon Dynasty, used a ginseng decoction as bath water.
The rich saponin in ginseng helps quickly supply moisture 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, 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 more minor elements, enclosing it in liposomes, and adding ingredients such as natural lipids and oils. In addition, we blend ingredients such as glycerin, niacinamide, and cholesterol 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 moisturizing cream at first and increase the amount gradually for your skin to adjust to the retinal slowly.
