L-R: Sooryehan Ginseng Essence ($142), Ginseng First Essence ($69), and Ginseng Cream ($117)
Hanbang, or Korean traditional herbal medicine, is a holistic approach that relies on the extensive use of herbal remedies to treat ailments and maintain overall health and wellbeing. What sets hanbang apart from other traditional remedies is its focus on fermentation. In skincare too, Koreans believe that the fermentation process preserves the properties of the active ingredients, while producing amino acids to stimulate collagen production and antioxidants to fight signs of premature ageing.
Ginseng – the star ingredient in Sooryehan's Ginseng skincare
Sooryehan is a premium skincare brand that artfully combines the wisdom of hanbang with modern biotechnology. The key ingredient is ginseng, which has multiple benefits as a skincare ingredient. It promises to help fight ageing, boost skin’s cellular energy, promote elastin and collagen production, protect against free radical damage, and calm flushed and irritated skin.
The difference however, is that Sooryehan's ginseng is wood-cultivated. That means it grows naturally in the wild, and isn't planted or cultivated. Wild ginseng contains twice more Ginsenoside, the active component of ginseng, compared to regular ginseng. This makes the the skincare much more effective, helping to brighten and moisturise skin.
Ginseng First Essence: The best-selling skincare star
The First Essence is infused with a ginseng jeonghwadan complex to purify and protect the skin against environmental aggressors like UV rays and pollution. It is the essential first-step essence as it helps to prep the skin to better absorb the other skincare products applied.
This is a boosting essence with skin detox effects that helps to improve the texture of rough skin. It goes on like a transparent gel but transforms into a watery serum to provide skin with light hydration. You'll love that it glides on smoothly, and doesn't leave a sticky feeling on skin.
Ginseng, of course, is the star ingredient but First Essence also contains gold, blue lilyturf and mulberry root.
Ginseng Essence: the next step to glowing skin
The Essence is enriched with Ginsenocide 33 (carefully extracted from ginseng that's cultivated in uncontaminated natural farms), to keep signs of ageing at bay. Pat it lightly on the skin after the First Essence till it gets fully absorbed, and you'll find your complexion to be supple and luminous after use.
Ginseng Cream: the essential final step
Finally, use the Cream, which uses ginseng gyeongokdan (the essential ingredient for stronger, more glowing skin). The ingredient is strengthened with wild honey, to nourish skin. Massage the luxurious cream into your skin to encourage and improve blood circulation, for a naturally rosy complexion.
When used together, this age-defying skincare trio promises to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, plump skin from within, and restore radiance and vitality to dull and tired complexions.
