About the product
What Is It:
With a base of tea tree leaf water (instead of plain ol’ water), and a slew of ingredients to hydrate and balance oil production (like zinc, hyaluronic acid, fig, pomegranate, gingko, calendula, and comfrey leaf, among others), the Swanicoco A.C Control Care Skintoner not only says buh-bye to excess sebum, it also helps soothe irritation and protect skin from harmful environmental factors. This hardworking Swanicoco toner also contains hydrolized algin, a marine plant, that is chock full of minerals and fatty acids to gently exfoliate for smoother skin. And of course, this toner helps soothe and calm easily irritated, sensitive skin while controlling excess oil production. Great for acne-prone, oily, or combination skin types, this toner is also good for those suffering from breakouts but who also has dehydrated skin.
To complete your oil-control regimen, you oily skin types still have to moisturize to prevent an over-production of oil! Finish your routine with the Swanicoco A.C Control Care Emulsion.
Michele of Unboxing Beauty raves about the Swanicoco A.C Control Care Skintoner:
“The increase on moisture on my skin is a respectable 27%, but what really impressed me is the decrease in oil ~ a whooping 41% reduction in oil, which means this toner is what it claims to be ~ an oil controlling product. This is the proof I needed to supplement my feeling that this product was helping decrease the oil on my skin.”

Beauty brands that claim to be nature-based are a dime a dozen in South Korea, but Swanicoco takes that claim seriously. With the commitment to ensuring that each Swanicoco product consists of 90% to 100% natural ingredients, Swanicoco has risen to the top of Rankey.com’s list of natural cosmetics in Korea. And it’s no wonder. Beloved for their standout products like the Bitamin C line, the Centella Asiatica Salve (an editor favorite), and PHA 10% Coco Soft Peeling Cream, Swanicoco is on a mission to disprove the notion that natural ingredients are less effective. Swanicoco harnesses Korea’s high-tech biotechnology to provide products with not just time-honored botanical ingredients but those that are science-based, ranging from epidermal growth factors to snail mucin to fermented ingredients. Originally founded in 2000 by Seong Chunseon as a way to treat her family’s sensitive skin, Swanicoco soon expanded to a business after Seong started getting rave reviews of her naturally fermented soaps from her neighbors. Today, Swanicoco boasts a collection of over 150 products, ranging from skincare and color cosmetics to hair and body care and, of course, Seong’s fermented soaps (now offered in nine varieties). There are 28 Swanicoco retail locations throughout Korea as well as a robust online presence. A favorite of insiders in the beauty community, Swanicoco continues to operate in the spirit of its founder, making each product as if it were for their own family.
