Sang-Seng:
the ultimate harmony between opposite energies

Sulwhasoo Ginseng Cream $220 212 872 8726

Who knew?  Outer radiance depends on inner harmony.

 

According to Korean Herbal Medicine, our bodies experience internal changes every seven years – and with these changes come dullness, skin-thinning, and loss of elasticity and firmness.

Traditionally, this ebbing begins during our 35th year; however, life today is far more hectic.  Of course we know that the environment affects our complexion – stress happens, life happens, living in New York happens… yet it isn’t quite as obvious that these day-to-day inconveniences exacerbate an energy change in our bodies which, in turn, influence the balance of energies vital to clear skin.

This is where Sulwhasoo comes in.
Unlike any skincare treatment we’ve ever seen, Sulwhasoo is entirely herbal.  Basing their skincare treatments on the ancient Donguibogam, Sulwhasoo heals by using what naturally exists – ginseng, pine, peony, lotus etc.  In combining an understanding of Sang-Seng with ancient Korean Herbal Medicine, skincare product is created upon how it naturally balances.

Most important, however, is Sulwhasoo’s use of the rare Korean Ginseng Berry.  Recognized for its healing & detoxifying powers, Ginseng leaf tea traditionally once was drunk to prevent freckles, blemishes and wrinkles.  Noble women in the Joseon Dynasty detoxified, brightened & clarified their bodies in a ginseng bath before a wedding.

In its most popular product, Concentrated Ginseng Cream, ginseng is used in various stages of growth to minimize lines and wrinkles while improving skin’s elasticity, volume and firmness, and ability to recover from the aging process (like sun damage). Ginseng also stimulates the skin’s metabolism which creates that difficult-to-attain radiance – the natural glow that doesn’t look greasy.

In using time-honored traditions, Sulwhasoo created the Jaeumdan complex to be full of nutrient-rich medicinal herbs that balance your skin so that it functions more effectively on its own.  Users have noted seeing fast results, that their complexion is more radiant and bright than before, and that this natural glow isn’t slick or greasy.

Wildly popular in Korea, Sulwhasoo now is available in the United States – exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman!  Scroll down to see pictures of the boutique and learn more about their skincare collection.
