What Is It:


The History of Whoo Essential Moisturizing Cleanser streamlines your cleansing process with all of the elegance The History of Whoo is famous for.
The History of Whoo Essential Moisturizing Cleanser makes saving time an indulgence with this elegantly formulated all-in-one cleanser. Containing Honghwagidan, Gamisoyodan, and Junggiboyuldan, ancient ingredients from a secret Korean royal recipe, this cleanser treats your skin to all the benefits that come with Korean Hanbang herbal medicine.
The History of Whoo Essential Moisturizing Cleanser’s power lies in wild gathered ginseng extract, which bestows your skin with nature’s gift of energy and nourishment. Ceramide 3 and velvet extract provide a next-level moisture that will give your skin a softness and suppleness you’d expect to find in a moisturizer rather than a cleanser. Powerful antioxidants such as Cordyceps Sinensis Extract and anti-inflammatory powerhouse Acanthopanax Senticosus Root Extract protect and soothe your skin.
The rich, cushiony foam washes away the day. There’s no need for a first step cleanser if you want to fast-track your skincare routine. Makeup, dirt, oil, and urban pollution are gently, yet thoroughly removed by this mild-yet-effective cleanser.
Even if you weren’t born a royal, you’ll certainly feel like you were after trying The History of Whoo Essential Moisturizing Cleanser.
