About the product
What Is It:
It’s hard to believe, but believe it — this do-it-all whipped soufflé-like gel cools on contact to calm, soothe, and moisturize dry, acne-prone, and, yes, even sensitive skin types, all without stickiness or greasiness. Rich in Centella asiatica extract, known as tiger grass in South Asia because tigers are believed to roll around in it when injured, this moisturizer with a wholly unique texture — you have to feel it to believe it — helps heal acne scars, calms redness, and soothes irritation, all without the tacky, slick, or suffocating feeling you think of when you think of a balm or salve. It’s truly a skin saver!
※ Real Tip from Swanicoco※ Q : This cream seems like it doesn’t have enough in the jar. A : This cream is supposed to be 30g, but we put it in 40g jar, just in case it overflows. It might seem like it’s not enough, but the actual volume goes up to 31 to 32g.
Q : I see tiny bubbly grain looking things in my cream. Is this expired? A : No. Centella Asiatica ingredient itself, tends to hold together and create the grain. Swanicoco minimized chemical ingredients, which could reduce the grain, to make the product more natural and reduce possible irritation.
We go crazy for this hard-to-describe, totally unique product for its ability to calm, cool, moisturize, and soothe our skin, whether we’re oily, dry, acne-prone, red, or sensitive. It looks like Vaseline, except there is absolutely no greasiness, no stickiness, no suffocating feeling. It’s soft to the touch, and it feels cool on the skin — yes, cool. The whipped soufflé-like cream glides on like a gel and melts in beautifully. Our only wish? That it came in a bigger tub so we could bathe in it.
How to use:
After your serum or essence step, smooth onto the face and press in with palms or fingertips to enhance absorption.

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.
