The Products of heimish

Chae: heimish initially stated off with more focus on makeup products such as easily usable eye palettes with dark colors and eyeliners. After researching on how the widely used cleansing oils can be improved for removing dark eye makeup in a more convenient way, we came to develop a balm type formula, creating the best seller All Clean Balm.
Jobie: How does heimish nail down the best ingredient to help treat different skin concern? For example: Bulgarian Rose, Cica, and Black Tea?
Chae:There are a wide range of raw materials used as cosmetic ingredients, but heimish’s R&D department considers matching ingredients and formulas that best compliment each individual skin concern the more important aspect. Rather than selecting which ingredient is the best, we try our best to select effective ingredients that would serve best for each skin concern. For example, the Bulgarian Rose Water is a moisturizing and nutritious ingredient that is good for smooth skin texture.
Chae: The newly launched Matcha Biome line series contains ingredients that provide anti-inflammatory and skin calming effects that can create a synergy of probiotics that excellently improve skin conditions.
Chae: The sea is considered the origin of all life and a natural resource. Marine lives and seaweed living in the sea have vitality to protect themselves from external damage. We wanted to provide health and beauty of the skin through research on marine water in seaweed ingredients and minerals containing the vitality of the sea, which is how the Marine Care line was introduced.

To create a glowing skin, you must moisturize your skin with a glow makeup base using the Artless Glow Base that creates a moist effect, and layer with the Artless Perfect Cushion that perfectly covers the skin with a natural sheer coverage.
