K-Beauty: Fusion of Fun and Function, Where Consumer and Formulator Dreams Meet

International influences to the Beauty Industry in the United States are stronger than ever, and nothing exhibits this more than the K-Beauty movement. The evolution of trends originating in Korea, and translating to the Western market has created buzz in consumers and social media alike. We break down what the inspiration, ingredient trends and consumer interest are for skin and hair care products, that were previously of a cultural segment of its own. Furthermore, we discuss the user experience that intrigues consumers about such elaborate beauty regimens, and how you can incorporate these concepts into your product lines.
