It all began 5,000 years ago when Asian botanicals such as Green Tea, Bamboo and Red Ginseng were recog- nized for their extraordinary health benefits.
Our founder, Sung-Whan Suh, believed in the power of these ingredients and the benefits they can bring to skin health. He began his life long journey of growing and cultivating the fields on the magnificent Jeju Island off the coast of Korea, where he believed was an optimal environment for growing the most powerful and potent Green Tea, which later was to be used in skincare formulas.
The only cosmetics company in the world to grow and harvest its own Green Tea, Amorepacific's very own Green Tea Gardens are grown on the magnificent JeJu Island known for its volcanic mineral rich soil.
Here, vital parts of the green tea plant are meticulously harvested and handpicked at the peak of their optimal potency, at specific times of the day and year, to ensure the highest level of efficiency.
Today, AmorePacific utilizes this wisdom by channeling these ingredients into luxurious, high-performance skincare formulas with proven results.
Holding over 140 global patents in green tea and skin related technology we fuse cutting edge formulations with age old tradition of Asian botanicals to bring our customers their supreme benefits.
Asian Botanicals are the core of AMOREPACIFIC skincare. Believing that beauty secrets are found in nature, we unearth the wisdom of Asian Botanicals and use these ingredients in the ultimate skin care products.
Using Green Tea, Bamboo Sap and Red Ginseng, among other ingredients to form our patented complexes we nourish the skin on a deeper level, utilizing the best of nature and science.
EGCG is a polyphenol found only in Green Tea and is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants on earth. AMOREPACIFIC is the first company in the world to stabilize this sought after ingredient and use it in skincare.
Bamboo is one of the most resilient plants on Earth and grows over 3 feet a day making it amongst the most dynamic plants. Bamboo sap is more hydrating than water and is rich in minerals and amino acids which revitalize the skin.
Red Ginseng contains the highest levels of saponin which is maximized by our harvesting methods during peak months in September and October. Red Ginseng stimulates hyaluronic acid production which controls skin aging by increasing moisture retention, firms and strengthens the skin's barrier.
For over half a century AMOREPACIFIC has pioneered technological developments to meet the highest standards of health and beauty, as demonstrated by the company's establishment of it's own research laboratory in 1954 – the first in the Korean cosmetics industry.
Spearheading research into Asian Botanicals, today we partner with world renowned researchers like the Dr. David Weitz's Research Group at Harvard University to bring to life the most sophisticated technologies to our skincare formulas.
We hold over 140 patents in skin related research and technology and are relentless at pushing the boundaries while staying true to our core values of using Asian botanicals.
