Jeju Island Isn’t Just a Social Media Destination — It’s a Skincare One, Too

Kakao moved their headquarters there.

About the product

What Is It:


Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam doesn’t just clean, it revitalizes too! Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam was made with oily acne-prone skin types in mind. The refining foamy lather sweeps away oil, dirt, impurities, and even traces of makeup.

Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam is made with naturally derived Salicylic Acid and its star ingredient, Torreya Nucifera, or Bija Seed Oil. Bija are trees in the evergreen family grown in the rich nutritious soil of Korea’s Jeju island. The seeds are known for their healing properties when applied topically and are used to treat inflammation, acne, and skin irritation. This ultra rare ingredient can only be harvested every 20 years! Assisting the Bija are other wonderful botanicals like Green Tea Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract, and Orchid Extract. This calming antioxidant-rich blend ensures your skin is protected as it boosts its defensive systems against external stressors.

Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam will help your oily skin look its best, removing excess sebum and restoring balance to the skin as the Salicylic Acid penetrates to deep to reduce the look of enlarged pores. Innisfree’s famous formula sticks to its all natural principals as this formula is free of synthetic colorants, mineral oil, animal ingredients, and artificial fragrances


Our insight:


Battling body acne? This “face wash” doesn’t like to be labeled — use it anywhere on the body you’re experience breakouts such as the chest, back, and shoulders!

Jeju is famous for its natural resources, including the bija tree. Learn more about Jeju’s bija trees here.
