Korean skincare brand Benton is a long-standing pillar in the K-beauty community, both within South Korea and internationally. Famed for their bee venom and snail mucin products, some would describe the brand as the epitome of Korean skincare with a heavy focus on ingredients and results-centric skin solutions.
In line with this focus on “healthy” products is the brand’s outlook on ingredients and formulas. They strive to produce formulas with high-quality ingredients that are skin-friendly. They very much emphasize the importance of non-irritating ingredients and ways to create products that are suitable for all skin-types. Although the brand has always used natural preservatives rather than chemical, since 2016 they have been using Ecocert certified natural preservatives. This means they should be effective, sustainably produced, and comfortable on the skin. Additionally, Benton do not mass produce their cosmetics, although of course mass production would cheaper. But no, they want their products to be freshly made and thus stick with smaller batches in production.
An important note is that Benton products get the PETA bunny stamp of approval. Benton do not test on animals and all their products are PETA Certified Cruelty-Free.
