South Korea’s K-beauty leader AmorePacific has widen its customer scope through the recent Beautycon LA.
On July 14 and 15, AmorePacific shared its proud heritage of strikingly efficacious skincare at the Beautycon LA, held in the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Running on its seventh year, Beautycon is an annual event held in New York, London, and Los Angeles, with over 100 brands, and 200 celebrity and beauty content creators in participation.
For the first time this year, a K-Beauty special exhibition zone, named K-Town, was featured in the event, proving the increasing popularity of Korean beauty products in the United States. Visitors of AmorePacific booth got the opportunity to learn about the major skincare products of AmorePacific, Sulwhasoo, Laneige, Mamonde, and Innisfree.
Launched in 2003, AmorePacific is the prestigious flagship brand of the K-beauty brand. Channeling the mystical power of Asian botanical ingredients like green tea, bamboo sap, and red ginseng, the brand revitalizes and heals the aging skin. It delivers quintessential botanical energy through its icon product Time Response Skin Renewal Creme, Time Response Eye Renewal Creme, and Green Tea Seed Treatment Oil.
Boasting a holistic and harmonious skincare, Sulwhasoo enhances the skin’s self-recovery and uses modern science to address skin problems down to their roots. The holistic beauty brand and its iconic and best-selling products, such as First Care Activating Serum EX, Snowise Brightening Serum, and Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream EX, were introduced in 2010 under AmorePacific in response to the growing popularity of K-Beauty products both domestic and aboard.
In 2014, AmorePacific took a wide leap into the US by introducing Laneige. Known for its trend-oriented, high-tech and moisturizing formula, Laneige uses science of water to transform it into a highly beneficial skin-hydrating energy, which is particularly evident with its popular products like Water Bank Moisture Cream, White Plus Renew Original Essence, and Water Sleeping Mask.
Continuing its vision to bring K-Beauty products and their benefits to more people, AmorePacific opened the first naturalist brand Innisfree at the Union Square, Manhattan, New York in September 2017. Formulated with Jeju’s natural resources such as green tea, orchid, and volcanic ash, Innisfree offers the purest and most natural approach to skincare through its products including Green Tea Seed Serum, My Cushion, Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask, and Orchid Enriched Cream.
This year, AmorePacific further expanded its K-Beauty brands by launching Mamonde through local beauty distributor Ulta in March.
