Brand Spotlight: Pyunkang Yul
Pyunkang Yul is a skincare brand launched by the renowned Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic, an institution well-known for treating atopic skin disorders by focusing on the use of traditional Korean ingredients or hanbang.
Its mission is to protect the skin and they do this by removing all the unnecessary chemical substances from their products and utilizing only the barest and minimum ingredients. Pyunkang Yul eliminates all the fillers that can usually be found on the ingredient list of skincare and beauty products. This makes most if not all of its products scent-free and clear of textural enhancers. Indeed, this back-to-basics approach proves to be the safest way to protect and calm your tired and irritated skin. Pyunkang Yul is the answer to your sensitive skin’s prayers.
Not only is it safe for the skin, the brand is also cruelty –free and environmentally friendly with its complete avoidance of any testing on animals and use of excessive plastic materials.
Pyunkang Yul’s minimalistic approach extends to its branding. In an era where a lot of girls are going back to basics, Pyunkang Yul’s aesthetic appeals to ladies who value simplicity without sacrificing skincare and pampering. The royal blue, apothecary-style bottles have blessed countless feeds of skincare enthusiasts demonstrating to us that its minimalistic appeal is one of the main reasons why the brand has reached cult status.
The purging doesn’t stop there as every product has an extremely straightforward name shrugging off all the marketing jargon evident in other brands. For example, an essence toner is called an essence toner, a cleansing foam is called simply a cleansing foam and the moisturizer is named a moisture cream.
Going back to its promise of simplistic skincare, the brand’s main focus is providing hydration and maintaining the oil and moisture balance in your skin which is imperative in achieving a healthy skin. With Pyunkang Yul, no matter your skin type, your skin will find its optimal balance for a healthy and glowing complexion.
