Why are Korean sunscreens so sought after?

There are several factors that make Korean sunscreens stand out from the crowd, both in terms of formulation and philosophy:

Korean sunscreens are renowned for their elegant, lightweight textures. They often utilize unique technologies like gel-creams, water-based formulas, and micro-sunscreens to achieve a silky, non-greasy feel that wears comfortably under makeup.

But the main appeal is the advanced filtering….period. Korean brands are at the forefront of sunscreen technology, frequently incorporating innovative UV filters that offer broader and more photostable protection. Also, they don’t cause itchy, burny eyes which is a huge turn off. 

Many Korean sunscreens go beyond just sun protection and are packed with additional skincare benefits. They often include ingredients like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, ceramides, and antioxidants to hydrate, brighten, and soothe the skin.

Overall, Korean sunscreens offer a unique combination of advanced sun protection, lightweight textures, and additional skincare benefits that cater to the needs of daily sun protection. This makes them a popular choice for people who are looking for an effective and enjoyable way to keep their skin healthy and protected.

We carry a wide range of Korean sunscreens suitable for all skin types.  It's important to remember that no single sunscreen is perfect for everyone, and it's important to choose one that suits individual skin types and needs. Always check the ingredients list to avoid any potential allergens, and to ensure it’s suitable for those who are acne prone.
