Korean beauty is everywhere. From bb creams to Korean towels to sheet masks it’s taken the US market by storm. There are lots of brands to choose from and places to go to get your fix. I stumbled upon Caolion recently and was really impressed with the message of making products for sensitive skin.
Caolion, founded by Jinyoung Joo, was made with sensitive skin in mind because she has sensitive skin herself. Caolion is the first brand to market natural skin in Korea and features hypoallergenic products free of synthetic dyes, fragrances and alcohol. Caolion’s philosophy is about creating natural beauty just as you were. Aging shouldn’t be something you’re ashamed of and by pursing what they believe is right Caolion strives to be an “ordinary cosmetic” for all regardless of age, gender, skin type; just as how ordinary it is to wash off the face with water.(caolion.com)
