Sulwhasoo's Shop at Bergdorf Goodman Opens!


Korea's best-selling prestige skincare brand, Sulwhasoo, opened their gorgeous space at Bergdorf Goodman last week.

Blending indigenous medicinal herbs through traditional Korean methods, the sought-after Korean skincare brand draws on the ancient wisdom of the "Sang-Seng" philosophy to balance the inner energies of the skin that contribute to a nourished, healthy complexion. Sulwhasoo elicits the innate benefits of herbal remedies and time-honored preparations by blending fresh and fermented native ingredients in an optimal balance, promoting vital, youthful skin.

Long favored in Korea for its unparalleled use of traditional energy-balancing preparations and holistic approach to skincare, Sulwhasoo presents a completely new category of beauty care: Medicinal Herbal Skincare.

The star products from the twelve-piece Sulwhasoo collection include the Concentrated Ginseng Cream, which delivers nutrient-rich ginseng to the deepest layers of the skin, and First Care Serum, which amplifies the effects of the treatments that follow and replenishes moisture.
