Brand Spotlight - COSRX

COSRX brand was founded in 2014.

The brand aim to create effective, affordable skin care lines that are 100% made and manufactured in Korea. The brand is known for its high-quality, natural extracts and compounds, which address dryness, aging and trouble-prone skin. Fast becoming a cult favorite, COSRX takes inspiration for its name from the word "cosmetics" and the "RX" symbol.

COSRX aims for eliminating any unnecessary ingredients and minimising the length of ingredient labeling by only including the very essential, natural, and healthful ingredients. Moreover, most of the products are mainly dissolved in natural extract rather than purified water to amplify the effect of natural active ingredients used. Though they do not come in fancy bottles, COSRX products' prescription (rx) is formulated carefully to aid each of our customers to treat their skin problems."
