With so many cosmetic products out there on the market, everyone has to use special design, marketing tactics and clever advertising to gain the consumer’s attention. Advertising claims have a decisive influence on the buying behaviour of consumers. To protect the consumer, there are laws on what claims are allowed to be made and what not.
“Urban Aging Defence Serum”, “City Defence Crème”, “UV Plus Anti-Pollution Day Cream”…. Such claims on newly introduced care products show that the cosmetics industry is responding to the increasing level of air pollution and its negative impact on skin.
The K-Beauty world has a flair for creating unique terms to describe a covetable complexion. Perhaps the most famous of these is the “Chok Chok” effect. “Chok Chok” pretty much describes the way the skin looks after a SPA treatment: clean, dewy-fresh, intensely hydrated, and plump.

A uniform complexion with perfect, taut skin is a core beauty ideal in Korea and cosmetics are therefore abundant in the country. What are the factors behind the success of K-Beauty?
