  • I don´t think so... I think it´s something related to this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22188804 But even after reading that I still don´t know the meaning...
  • RandyS: yes. I don´t know who is Whoo, but it´s a very luxury (and expensive) brand. Here is the marketing concept of the brand (it can be appear silly, but sells!): https://www.tangs.com/productlist/brands/153-the-history-of-whoo
  • @RandyS: the second one.
  • Actually, those more exotic ingredients, according to my personal perception, may be more popular in magazine articles made by western media about K-beauty than in Korean products. I only see those ingredientes in products from small Korean companie…
  • To be sincere, I also don´t know. I will launch some sunscreens on the market that are being formulated by a very skilled chemist and have many boosters on their formulas. They already were tested by standard SPF methods (in vivo, FDA, COLIPA or JCI…
  • The name of the tool is "Basf Sunscreen Simulator". "Simulator"... it´s just a simulation! The ingredients that you use to make the emulsion can have a big impact on the sunscreen performance, on the sunscreen actives. For instance: many silicones c…
  • Randy: I agree with you. I would add that maybe almost everything that can improve the skin condition could "boost" the skin immunity. Or even (maybe, again) almost everything that have a nice fragrance and offers a pleasant, relaxing sensation (due…
  • The link contains some technical details about its technology: Shiseido Focuses on Langerhans Cells to Strengthen Skin Immunity
  • I would like to remember "fragrance" is an extremely embracing word. There are thousands of components that are used as fragrance - and each one can offer a different effect.
  • A lot of aromatic components that are used to make fragrances may offer many benefits to the skin: hyaluronic acid stimulation, whitening, skin barrier improvement etc. Some examples: The effects of Musk T on peroxisome proliferator-activated recept…
  • The ingredient that could promote the growth effect in this product is the vegetal extract. Here are technical details about that extract: Shiseido Has Developed an Ingredient That Helps Eyelashes Grow Longer   https://www.shiseidogroup.com/releimg…
  • Speaking in essence/serum, the company which put a cosmetic with a serum texture for the first time in the world was the japanese Kosé Corp.: http://www.kose.co.jp/global/special/sekaihatsu/skincare_1.html Their second serum, in 1979, was called Es…
  • In Asia serums usually are called essence or beauty liquid. Some lotions (lotion, in countries like Japan, is a liquid that is used after the cleansing process to hydrate and soft the skin´s barrier function, it´s similar to a toner, but it´s not to…
  • Fun fact: I´ve never seen a product called Brazilian being sold in Brazil.
  • Yes, they say is per gram (this info is on their site now: http://www.hera.co.kr/kr/en/product/skincare/retinol_wrinkle_corrector.html). TKS again. I personally don´t think it´s too low, I had some peel with similar concentration. In my country the …
  • It´s me again... Another of their brands launched a product with 2500 IU of retinol per gram. (Now they are at least being more specific). So... 2500 IU x 0.3 micrograms = 750 micrograms (per g). 750 micrograms = 0.75mg (per g). 0.75mg per g = 0,075…
  • Why don't you try a specific cleanser to remove sunscreens? Example: http://www.sephora.com/ultimate-cleansing-oil-P253807?skuId=734921
  • I'll copy here a comment I've done in another site: "I’ve tested a lot of moisturizers with alcohol even as the second ingredient in the ingredients list and many of them hydrated the skin better than many alcohol-free moisturizers. So, it all depen…
  • TKS a lot Randy. But why when I use an online conversion the results for 750 micrograms is 0.00075g? I guess I was doing something wrong because my results were too low.

  • But in the fridge? Is it ok for vitamin C serums? If I'm not wrong SkinCeuticals serums should be stored in the fridge after opening. This blogger made an interesting test with a vitamin C serum: https://beautyknot.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/
  • According to a book called "The Scented Ape: The Biology and Culture of Human Odour" "East Asians (Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese) have fewer apocrine sweat glands compared to people of other descent, and the lack of these glands make East Asians le…
  • 1 and 2 seems the case for L'oréal/Skinceuticals. An ingredients list from a SkinCeuticals product before to be bought by L'oréal (I remember that there were a lot of color variations of the same product - sometimes it appeared to be light green, ot…
  • I think it's usually true. L'oréal changed almost all SkinCeuticals products, Shiseido did the same in BareMinerals and NARS and the list goes on...
  • I think so because after all those products I put Retin-A and it visibly stills exfoliate my skin!  I personally don't feel my skin REALLY well hydrated if I use just a serum or just a moisturizer cream for instance. 
  • The problem is if a oral sunscreen really works it probably will cause a lot of side effects. I don't know anything to take orally that really works and don't give side effects... On the other hand, topical sunscreens are safe, effective and are alr…
  • Rozy: no, in the US (just online) and Europe (Selfridges/UK for instance) as well. 
  • sarcosine, prunus cerasusextract, cinnamomum zeylanicum extract, prunusyedoensis leaf extract, parfum. Sorry for many messages, but if I make just one message the site says "body is too long..."
  • menthoxypropanediol, carthamustinctorius oil, capryloyl salicylic acid, propyleneglycol, capryloyl glycine (continue...).
  •  polybutene, polyglyceryl-2 oleate,dicaprylyl ether, tocopherol, squalane, simmondsiachinesis oil, (continue...)
