One of Korea’s biggest cosmetic company (after Amore Pacific) , LG Household ( same company that produces handphones, televisions ) has gone the organic natural way. The powerhouse company that houses luxury brands like The History Of Whoo, OHUI, Isa Knox (for mature skin), Vonin ( men skincare brand ), Lacvert ( to fight Amore Pacific’s Laneige – brand for younger skin), Sooryehan ( The History of Whoo for younger skin – or also known as the cheaper History Of Whoo – for women in their 20-30s ) recently introduced a new herbal natural and organic brand named Belif – as interest in natural cosmetics is growing in Asia itself.
We think LG is really clever to do this because there is a lack of organic natural skincare brands at Korea at the moment, and is probably trying to challenge Amore Pacific’s organic natural skincare brand – Innisfree, but Belif is more of a luxury brand compared to Amore Pacific’s Innisfree who is catered to teenagers and young adults. Belif will in fact be LG’s 4th luxury high end brand brand after Ohui, Whoo, and su:m 37 ( don’t know why Isa Knox isn’t categorized as a luxury brand by LG ).
This is LG’s first brand that doesn’t use mineral oil, fragrances , parabens or synthetic preservatives, artificial coloring. Sad to say that their other brands contain these ingredients, even the amazing History Of Whoo. I hope one day they will make The History Of Whoo mineral oil and fragrance free !
Belif’s line consists of about 44 products including five types of herbal cleansing formulas, three types of herbal extract toners, three types of moisturizers, three types of essences, three types of creams, one eye cream, four specialized products, two types of sunscreens, two types of B.B. creams, six types of masks, six body line products and five products for men.
Belif products usually come in simple white background which contains labels that ressembles chemical bottles in a lab. In addition, by using simple containers, removing unnecessary packaging, and selling within a reasonable range of KRW 10,000 to 60,000, it can be considered a practical, daily-use, natural herbal cosmetic.
