Welcome, Korean Beauty

The Western beauty industry has evolved tremendously over the past few years, by providing us with a wider range of products due to our varying skin types, colors, and personal preferences. It is amazing to see big companies marketing to every type of person but there is a definite underrepresentation  of people of color, specifically people from Asia.

Korean beauty has taken the industry by storm and has shocked people with new formulas in cosmetics and the use of interesting use of ingredients (such as 'snail hydrogel') in cleansers. In Koreatown, Manhattan, there is an abundance of beauty stores that you will find every race and gender purchasing from. Nature Republic is an Eco-friendly company that sells everything from lipsticks to hair products and is extremely affordable for everyday beauty fans. There is a very serene atmosphere as well as helpful and kind employees at Nature Republic. It is great for many East Asians to see fellow Asians modeling for blooming brands such as Nature Republic and to also have many different products for other races is a definite bonus and should continue in the beauty industry.
