What is Acne?
If sebum is clogged around hair follicles without being discharged from the skin, it leads to the propagation of bacteria that create inflammations, which turn into acne. Acne is known to be caused by hormonal changes, bacterial infection, and genetic factors, but the exact cause is yet to be found.
These are what we discovered.
Nonetheless, various effective ingredients have been developed for sensitive skin. The most widely known ingredients are Houttuynia cordata, Centella asiatica, and Tea Tree, which lay a healthy foundation for sensitive skin.
Tea Tree Extract
(Active ingredient from tea tree)
Terpineol is the main ingredient that comprises 60% of Tea Tree, it has amazing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects after the isolation and purification process.
Houttuynia Cordata Extract

Centella Asiatica Extract
Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Madecassoside
(Active ingredient from Centella Asiatica Extract)
Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, and Madecassoside which are known as active ingredients from Centella Asiatica help soothe and regenerate the skin and control inflammations.
The technology of SKIN&LAB
Although they may seem similar on the outside, these active ingredients: Tea tree oil, Houttuynia Cordata, and Centella Asiatica Extract may all seem similar on the outside, but not all these three naturally contain the active ingredients mentioned above in actual cosmetic products. This is why the same main ingredient may have different effects on the skin when actually used. We isolated and purified the active ingredients that can produce real effects and added them to actual products, offering a whole new level of soothing effect. Also, we applied to skin (transdermal) penetration enhancement techniques so that these various active ingredients can reach the dermal layer deep inside the skin without being destroyed and quickly recover the damaged skin barrier.
