“We believe in the power of fermented ingredients as the best way to calm and support the skin microbiome,” explains Sang Lee, CEO of FaceTory. “We've chosen natural ingredients traditionally used in Korean beauty and medicine like pear, seaweed, mung bean, honeybush and cica to go through the fermentation process to make the ingredient even more potent. To help increase the efficacy of our formulation, we included functional ingredients like capryloyl salicylic acid, vitamin B3 and B5 and hyaluronic acid, to tackle various skin concerns and to support healthy skin.”
Products part of the collection include:
Gel Cleanser with Fermented Pear and LHA: Designed to purify and cleanse the skin from dirt and impurities, it is formulated with fermented pear and a blend of such exfoliants as LHA, BHA and Protease to gently exfoliate and hydrate the skin;
Soft Essence with Fermented Seaweed and 5% Panthenol: Made with fermented seaweed and fermented cica, this essence works to plump the skin by helping reduce moisture loss and protect skin cells from environmental damage while also soothing redness caused by irritation;
Vita Serum with Fermented Mung Bean and 10% Niacinamide: Containing a dose of niacinamide to brighten and smooth the skin, it also is formulated with fermented mung bean to help protect the skin from free radicals and UV damage; and
Barrier Cream with Fermented Honeybush and Hyaluronic Acid: A barrier cream that relieves sensitive and dehydrated skin for a moisturized and dewy finish. Made with fermented honeybush, it also works to keep skin calm, firm and smooth by locking in all skin care products.
“Using clean and gentle ingredients, each Urban Calm product is thoroughly researched by our in-house product development team and tested by VIPs and trusted friends. Driven by the lack of efficacy in the skin care industry, we formulate our products with ferments to enhance potency and effectiveness. Each step matters and we strive to improve our product formulations as the world changes day by day,” said Lee.
