The subject of how excessive plastic packaging is hazardous to the environment has been an ongoing issue. Now, we’re slowly seeing skincare brands adopting eco-friendly packaging.

We take a closer look at K-Beauty brands that have made a mark in the skincare industry. Their unique high-quality ingredients include ground-breaking substances like snail mucus and bee venom, very intriguing.

This time around, BAZAAR rounds up the 5 best eco-friendly Korean brands.   


Pursuing eco-friendly green living to preserve the environment, Innisfree is a natural brand that shares the benefits of nature from the beautiful island of Jeju. 100% recycled paper from discarded pulp, acquired FSC certification, eco-friendly soy ink for printing instead of petroleum compounds — Innisfree employs each one of these in their manufacturing process. 

Innisfree’s NEW No-Sebum Powder Cushion SPF29 PA + + has joined Innisfree’s No-Sebum family. Their #MatteFix and #Smudge-proof contains triple sebum control powder, which absorbs excess sebum. Their micro blurring powder, #BlurMatte, evens out skin texture while keeping moisture for soft and smooth skin.
