About the product

What Is It:

Get down to good skincare basics with this mattifying toner, ideal for oily or combination skin! Containing a unique “Evermat” complex, a special combination of Chlorantha Bark Extract and Oleanolic acid, the Swanicoco Bitamin E Extra Matt Skintoner controls excess sebum and improves skin tone by smoothing out your skin’s texture and tightening pores. Butylene Glycol moisturizes skin while various natural essential oils, such as Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Peel Oil and Rose Damascena Flower Oil, nourish the skin with a subtle glow. Instead of using water as its first ingredient, this toner contains Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract which boasts the skin-boosting, protective effects of Anthocyanin. For those who are oily or acne prone, this calming, lightweight toner is the perfect first step in your skincare routine.

Our insight:

Not all toners are astringent and drying! Korean toners like the Bitamin E Extra Matt Skintoner actually refresh and replenish skin, and oil-controlling ones like this one regulate sebum production from within rather than merely stripping away oil from the surface of skin. Try it–you’ll be amazed at the difference! (And you’ll never want to go back to harsh, stripping Sea Breeze-type toners again!)

How to use:

After cleansing, apply a moderate amount onto a cotton pad or into the palms of your hands and gently swipe or pat into skin. Use light tapping motions to allow excess product to absorb completely into skin, and follow with the rest of your routine.

Brand info:

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.
