Korean skincare and beauty products have established a stronghold in the global beauty market, over the last few years, and with good reason. They are just that freaking good! They combine whacky ingredients with too-cute-to-use packaging, make unthinkable aesthetic-related claims, and truly achieve them. If you haven’t gotten on the K-beauty bus yet, it’s time. One of the most important factors behind the power of these Korean beauty products is the use of unique natural ingredients. So, here are four ingredients used in Korean skincare and beauty products that you should be trying out right now.

This cream is not only extremely hydrating, but also brightens your complexion.
Sap from birch trees or birch juice contains a high amount of amino acids, enzymes and sugars. It is detoxifying and extremely hydrating, and is touted as the ‘next coconut water’.

Also a humectant, bamboo helps to hold moisture, as well as contains antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
