Korean startup Botanicsens Inc. has an effective beauty care regime based on science. Botanicsens is quite a popular beauty care brand in South Korea and globally.
Using natural ingredients to make products
Botanicsens uses the most natural ingredients that help strengthen skin cells. The core ingredient that the skincare product developer uses is called Ionone. Ionone is an aroma compound found in flowers, fruits, like violets, raspberries, carrots, etc. Ionone quickly penetrates the skin to reach the collagen creating dermis layer and encourages the body to synthesize collagen that firms the skin layer eventually.
Compared with existing cosmetic products Botanicsens has developed the technology to induce the skin to make the necessary ingredients on its own. This gives the skin its natural strength, making it resilient. The high-function compounds used in Botanicsens products send signals that help the skin excellently execute its original functions by encouraging the synthesize collagen, hyaluronic acid, and more. Activating this mechanism helps the skin firm from within. The brand has a variety of products like body wash, hand cream, body oil, body cream, sun cream, scalp tonic, etc. Botanicsens products are available in Korea and other countries like the USA as well as by online ordering.
