The Saem releases Chaga mushroom line September 13, 2011





The Saem will be releasing a new serum called The Saem Chaga Fermentation Liposome 100 Serum  차가발효 리포좀 100 세럼.




The serum also contains about 79% of pure chaga mushroom fermentation extracts ( instead of using purified water ). It is also nano-technologied to ensure better absorption of active ingredients deep into the skin. Chaga has the highest ORAC ( antioxidant ) score ever recorded in any natural food! Chaga extract has 1,104 ORAC units per gram. Compared with other foods rich in antioxidants, such as blueberries or pomegranate, Chaga is much higher in antioxidants, meaning that its capacity to wipe out free radicals is much stronger.




One scientific study (Biofactors; 2004, Vol. 21 Issue 1-4, p109-112, 4p, 2 graphs), demonstrated that cells treated with chaga mushroom have 40% less DNA damage from external sources. Another study (Biofactors; 2006, Vol. 27 Issue 1-4, p147-155, 9p, 4 graphs) showed that chaga mushroom may indeed have anti-cancer properties by inhibiting something called “gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC)”. Other ingredients in this line are gingko biloba extract, adenosine, ginseng extract which also helps in general anti-aging!




The Saem has also released an entire new line based on the Chaga Fermentation extract which consists of a toner, emulsion and cream. The entire line is Paraben free, artificial colouring free, and mineral oil free.




The Saem introduces 3 new BB Creams : The Saem Skin Fit BB Cream SPF 30 ( Silky Finish, Aqua, Original ) May 12, 2011



Hankook’s The Saem will be releasing 3 new BB Creams called the Skin Fit BB Cream SPF 30 PA ++ in three versions : Aqua, Silk Finish, Original.

The Skin Fit BB embraces the concept of lingerie ( which can be seen in the background of the photo ad ). A little weird…lol ? But like a good lingerie, this bb cream is suppose to ‘wrap’ your skin nicely, comfortable to wear all day long, and lets your skin breathe.

It also features a complex powder formulation which helps in increasing water retention in the skin, and helps absorb excess sebum and doesn’t block the skin from breathing.

Like all BB Creams, this BB Cream is an all on one : whitening, UV Protection, and anti-wrinkle. It moisturizes the skin, calm irritation, control production of sebum, etc.

The three BB Creams are :

1. The Saem Skin Fit Aqua BB Cream 스킨 핏 아쿠아 비비크림

Moisturizes your skin and keeps it moist all day long.

2. The Saem Skin Fit Original BB Cream 스킨 핏 오리지널 비비크림

Gives a natural coverage

3. The Saem Skin Fit Silky Finish BB Cream 스킨 핏 실크 피니쉬 비비크림

Perfect adhesion to the skin, and leaves your skin silky smooth all day long.

Price : 16,000 wons / 50ml


The Saem releases their first hebal line April 6, 2011


Hankook’s mid-range brand – The Saem – which is known for being endorsed by superstar Lee Seung Gi and also for it’s Gem Miracle line will be releasing their first ever herbal line called – get ready for this it’s pretty long – Aleumdaun Saem, Yeon Myeong Hyeon Lain line – in short the Yeon Myeong line.

The feature of this line is the 110- year old wild ginseng root and it will be a herbal functional whitening line. Highly rich in Ginseng saponins, the line ensures moisture and prevents aging as well as whitening. In addition, 100% purified water is used.

Suitable for those aged above their 20s.

The Saem hasn’t been available in Gmarket yet, but here’s the Korean name for it in case you’re in Seoul and looking for this line in The Saem’s boutique. 더샘 ( The Saem)  ‘아름다운 샘, 연 명현라인’

As The Saem is a mid-range brand like Etude House, Tony Moly etc – the prices are priced right – but we wonder how concentrated can the 110 year old ginseng root be when it’s sold at a relatively cheap price compared to Whoo and Sulwhasoo.

The line compromises of 4 products namely

1) Hyun Toner 150 ml – 22,000 wons

2) Hyun Emulsion 140ml – 22,000 wons

3) Hyun Serum 50ml – 28,000 wons

4) Hyun Whitening Cream 50ml – 30,000 wons
