The rise of South Korean skin products

Published

on

If you have never used a Korean face cream made from snail slime then you may be missing out

Likewise you may be being left behind if you dont spend an hour or two each week wearing a Korean face mask made from seaweed

These are two products at the forefront of the latest big trend to hit the global skin care and cosmetics industry – the boom in such items developed and made in South Korea

The Asian country has long been obsessed with skincare – South Korean women spend twice as much of their income on beauty products and make-up than their American counterparts Meanwhile South Korean men spend more on skincare than those in any other country

Such a dedication to looking and feeling good means that South Korea is at the forefront of research into new skincare products and its exports of such items are soaring

Last year South Korea exported more than $264bn (£185bn) of cosmetics goods a new high according to the Korea Customs Service This compares with $1bn in 2012 and $191bn in 2014

One of the biggest export markets for Korean skincare products which have been collectively dubbed K-beauty is the US where the big rise in sales has been led by small firms more often set up by young Americans of Korean ancestry

And the ingredients arent ones traditionally found in American or European products Snail extract for example is supposed to stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin is used in moisturisers and spot treatments

In a beauty salon in New Yorks Koreatown district business partners Christine Chang 34 and Sarah Lee 35 are holding forth on the newest trends in skincare products from South Korea

Ms Lee holds up a poster of a frilly white translucent mushroom explaining that the fungus is a new ultra-hydrating ingredient being used in skincare

She has the full attention of her audience a select group of beauty editors diligently taking notes

Both Korean Americans Ms Lee and Ms Chang first met 10 years ago whilst working for global skincare giant LOreal in South Korea

Back in 2014 they decided to use their dual knowledge of Korean skincare products and the US to start their own company called Glow Recipe

Their business imports such items from South Korea and its website sells 150 products Their bestseller is a face mask made from kelp covered in a hydrating serum which retails for $14

Ms Less and Ms Chang says the business has been growing at an average 70% ever quarter since they launched

The popularity of Korean beauty products in the US can be traced back to 2011 when the then unknown product BB cream first launched in the country

BB cream is a hybrid moisturiser and foundation that Korean women had been using for years In 2014 the US market for BB cream alone was worth $164m

South Koreas beauty industry has seen phenomenal growth says Sarah Jindal analyst for market research firm Mintel

Still there are some major differences between the Korean and the western approach to beauty For example while in the west it is typical for women to follow a three-step facial regime of cleanse-tone-moisturise in South Korea there are 10 different steps including the use of essence and ampoule creams and a sheet mask

Bridging this beauty gap is where people like Korean American Charlotte Cho come in Ms Cho runs the online beauty blog and shop Soko Glam with her husband and also recently launched a book about Korean beauty secrets

A native of California who moved to New York Ms Cho 30 says: We helped drive this growth in 2012 [of the sale of Korean beauty products] when we started the company

At the time I felt like there was a huge gap between US and Korea There was a cult following but no proper bridge between the two

The blog and the book help explain and spread the Korean beauty philosophy and Ms Cho is a proponent of the 10-step routine She says SoKo Glam is growing exponentially in its third year

Megan McIntyre beauty director at lifestyle website refinery29com says that most American women who try the 10 steps cant keep it up

After a while many women who tried to keep up realised that it was pretty damn expensive to use ten plus products a day and there wasnt necessarily a huge noticeable difference in their skin she says

So instead they cherry picked the products that were best for their skin An essence here an ampoule there an under-eye mask for emergencies

It became less about emulating the entire routine and more about finding something new to boost an existing routine

But the dilemma for Western consumers remains – where to begin with this plethora of products?

Alicia Yoon who runs New York-based Peach and Lily an online store selling imported Korean beauty products says it is important that firms like hers dont sell too many items

Our curation process is so rigorous that only 5% of the products we look at really make our cut she explains

From thousands of South Korean brands she picked out about 50 and then visited their companies to look closely at their research and development process

Ms Yoon 33 who quit her job in private equity to start her company in 2012 says she hasnt looked back since

Extinct plant discovered in amber

Published

on

Biologists have referred to a brand new types of extinct plant according to two fossil flowers which were held in portions of amber not less than 15 million years

Strychnos electri goes towards the genus whose tropical bushes trees and vines are renowned for creating the deadly contaminant strychnine

The United States scientists referred to it as following the Greek word for amber (elektron) – the fossilised resin of lengthy-dead trees

Their discovery seems within the journal Character Plants

The 2 flowers were among 500 fossils collected on the 1986 area visit to Professor George Poinar of Or Condition College

Prof Poinar is really a famous entomologist and many of these individuals were bugs But after nearly 3 decades focusing on the bugs his eye chosen the flowers

These were remarkably complete – unlike most plant fossils present in amber that are usually just fragments

In 2015 he sent high-resolution photos to Professor Lena Struwe at Rutgers College

Most likely poisonous

These flowers appeared as if they’d just fallen from the tree stated Prof Poinar I figured they could be Strychnos and that i sent these to Lena since i understood she was a specialist for the reason that genus

Prof Struwe go about evaluating the physique from the flowers to any or all 200 known Strychnos species brushing the collections of multiple museums and herbaria

The figures mostly accustomed to identify types of Strychnos are flower morphology and thats what we should fortunately have with this fossil stated Prof Struwe

I checked out each specimen of ” New World ” species captured pics of and measured it and in comparison it towards the photo George sent me I requested myself How can the fur around the flower petals look? Where would be the fur situated? and so forth

For that creatures from the late cretaceous S electri was most likely not so good eating

Types of the genus Strychnos are nearly all toxic in some manner stated Prof Poinar

Each plant features its own alkaloids with different effects Many are more toxic than the others also it might be that they are effective as their poisons offered some defence against herbivores

The favourite such alkaloid strychnine is really a contaminant that when created the foundation of numerous rat poisons – in addition to being certainly one of Norman Batess murder weapons within the Alfred Hitchcock movie Psycho

However these plants also fall inside the asterid family including greater than 80000 flowering plants including most of the ones humans eat from taters and mint to sunflowers and coffees

The brand new discovery is an important accessory for the fossil record of the family that is very poorly understood
