Our patented Concentric Technology™ is composed of the following three proprietary technologies that reinforce each other to yield age-defying results: Solubilization Technology, Delivery Technology, and Hydration Technology.
Our Solubilization Technology with respect to Ginsenoside Compound K is now patented in South Korea, and our Solubilization Technology with respect to Mastic Gum is now patented in the U.S. Our Delivery and Hydration Technologies are also patented in South Korea.
There are many powerful natural actives with very low solubility in water—meaning, it is difficult to dissolve them in high concentrations in water and use in skincare formulations. Compound K and Mastic Gum are two very potent antioxidants with very low solubility.
With our Solubilization Technology, high concentrations of such natural actives, including Compound K and Mastic Gum, are water-solubilized and effectively used in our skincare formulations.
Through our patented Delivery Technology, vehicles with multiple, concentric layers (like an onion) of hydrophilic and hydrophobic bioactives are created, resembling the skin’s hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers for effective delivery.
By improving the moisture barrier and delivering natural moisturizing actives deeply into the skin, our patented Hydration Technology provides hydration both on the skin surface and internally, ensuring that the skin remains hydrated throughout the day.
When researching next-generation antioxidants, we discovered Compound K, an active metabolite and a key bioactive component of Panax ginseng. Studies have shown that it helps promote collagen synthesis and fights comprehensive signs of aging, including dryness, hyperpigmentation, UV-induced skin damage, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity and firmness. But due to its extremely low solubility in water, Compound K has been prevented from being effectively used in skincare formulations – until now.
We were granted patent in Korea on our water-solubilized form of Compound K and our method of water-solubilizing Compound K. We showed through a third-party in-vitro study that Compound K exhibits as high antioxidant power as Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) when it is water-solubilized at a concentration of 750ppm. With our patented Solubilization Technology, we are able to water-solubilize Compound K at a concentration of 400,000ppm.
The skin microbiome is an ecosystem of microorganisms living on our skin surface. It is the skin’s first line of defense, playing an essential role in defending the skin against environmental stressors and maintaining the skin’s health and appearance. Studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between age and microbiome profile, and that a well-balanced skin microbiome can help achieve healthier and younger-looking skin.
Our scientists have been researching probiotics and prebiotics that can help restore and maintain the skin’s microbiome. Now, with our proprietary combination probiotics and prebiotic, we are able to create formulations that can help balance the microbiome for the skin’s health and appearance. Our probiotics are Aspergillus Ferment, Bacillus Ferment, Saccharomyces Ferment, and Lactobacillus Ferment that have been obtained from bamboo and cultured using soybeans. Our prebiotic is Levan.
