Charmzone releases new sunscreens March 30, 2011

621newproduct-3

 

 

Charmzone is relatively foreign to non-koreans, but it is a staple household Korean brand.

 

 

From the Joseibi website :

Established as Bu-Han Cosmetic Co., Charmzone was first based at the Pee-Bo Drug Store, from 1960 for 20 years. After graduating from the college of pharmacy of Sung- Kyun- Kwan University in 1966, Kwang-Seok Kim , founder and Chairman of Charmzone, studied the skin of Korean women for 20 years while practicing pharmacy. After compiling data on the skin characteristics of about 300,000 women who had consulted with him, in 1984, he decided to create a cosmetic company that could meet the needs of these women. Charmzone was originally founded as Bu-Han Cosmetic Co. The two Chinese characters, “Bu”, “Han” mean “prosperity”, and “wealth” respectively. The goal from the beginning was to become the premier cosmetic company in the world. Because of Charmzone, women around the world are becoming even more beautiful.

 

 

Charmzone has recently released two new sunscreens called the Albatross Daily Sun SPF 35 / PA ++ and the Charmzone Alba Tross Lesports Sun SPF 50 / PA +++.

 

 

 

The Albatross Daily Sun SPF 35 PA ++ 60ml forms a protective barrier to the tired skin, enriched with peptides and hyaluronic acid. It can be used also as a make-up base.

 

 

 

The Albatross Lesports Sun SPF 50 / PA +++ is a light, waterproof sunscreen and is perfect for sportswear. No need to worry that your sweat will wipe off the sun protection.

Sum 37 Sun Away Baked Essence

sum2

 

 

LG’s Su:m 37 has introduced recently an essence powder pact called the Su:m 37 Sun-Away Baked Essence Sun SPF 50+ / PA +++.

 

 

This is sunblock powder which is called an essence powder because it also contains the benefits of an essence together with the powder.

 

 

The new baked powder sun block can be applied regularly on the make up without causing the powder to spead in the air.

 

 

The powder contains woodapple elements which have been used for about 2000 years in Myanmar to aid the cooling of the skin ( caused by intense sun rays ), contraction of the pores and adjusts the levels of water and oil.

 

 

Serves as a functional make up with high sun protection SPF 50 / PA +++

 

 

Brightens the skin and provides moisture without clogging pores or causing skin problems

 

 

No addition of artificial fragrance, artificial colouring, and synthetic preservatives.

 

 

 

I did some research on Sum 37’s claim on this and it turns out to be true :

110049654837903-kyauk-pyin

 

 

The Burmese-Myanmar would use a stem with the bark of the Woodapple intact  ( picture above ) and use a specially made ‘grind-stone’ to make it into a paste and directly apply it on their skin as skincare.

Called as the ‘Thanaka Cream’ by Burmese women , the Thanaka cream is made by grinding the bark, wood, or roots of woodapple with a small amount of water. It has a fragrant smell somewhat similar to sandalwood. The use of woodapple bark paste dates back to the founding of the first Burmese kingdoms in the 1st century B.C.

 

 

The woodapple elements gives a cooling sensation and provides protection from sunburn. It is believe to also help remove acne and promote smooth skin. It is also an anti fungal.

 

 

From its origins over two millennia ago to the present day, Burmese women vouch that Thanaka helps remove acne, promote smooth skin and act as a sun block, antiseptic, anti-fungal ointment and toner. As a result, for many Burmese women the paste is an essential part of their beauty routine.
