About the product
What Is It:
Keep skin soft and hydrated without heaviness with this silky liquid moisturizer. With rice ferment extract as a base instead of purified water, this lightweight moisturizer, rich in stabilized vitamin C, niacinamide, and rh-Oligopeptide-1 (EGF), calms redness, gently brightens skin, and supports your sunscreen’s protection against skin damage. Sodium hyaluronate and hydrolyzed collagen boosts skin’s elasticity, while aloe leaf powder smooths rough, dry complexions and soothes sensitivity. Tested to be non-irritating and safe for sensitive and troubled skin types, yet great for all skin types, including oily and combination skin.
An editor favorite, this lightweight emulsion was curated by Editor at Large Jude Chao for her Light & Bright Box.
How to use:
Apply after your essence and serum step. Pat in gently to absorb.

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.
