Cosmetics with bioactive chemicals that are marketed as having medicinal advantages are called cosmeceuticals. The name is a combination of the words "cosmetics" and "pharmaceuticals." The word "cosmeceutical" describes a product that falls between cosmetic and pharmaceutical quality. These "professional" cosmetics include active components to promote healthier skin. These include antioxidants and anti-ageing compounds like vitamin C, vitamin A, peptides and marine extracts, among others. These components are termed "active" since they cause changes in the skin, whether it's enhancing texture and skin tone, plumping ageing skin, or lowering pigmentation.
The increasing consumer inclination toward natural and nutrient-dense products for both beauty and healthcare can be attributed to the expansion of the cosmeceuticals industry in South Korea. The need for anti-ageing solutions to avoid wrinkles, uneven skin tone, age spots, and damaged hair is growing. As a result, the cosmeceutical sector witnessed significant market opportunities for product launches and development of the cosmeceutical industry in South Korea. Moreover, South Korea is likely to become a super-aged society by 2025. With the increasing ageing population, a large portion of the population spends on beauty and skincare products. This factor has prompted manufacturers to place more emphasis on skin care products with active anti-ageing properties.
Many cosmeceutical formulations contain botanical extracts. The most often used extracts are those from green tea, pine bark, grape seeds, pomegranate, Coffea arabica and resveratrol. Botanical extracts provide a wide range of phenolic and polyphenolic antioxidants that reduce the generation of metalloproteinases, limit the formation of free radicals, and boost collagen synthesis. Polyphenols offer photoprotection and shield against skin cancer. Protein glycation, which leads to wrinkling and sallowness seen in people with UV exposure, is inhibited by polyphenols. Cyclooxygenase 2, inhibiting NF-B, and other inflammatory pathways, also function as an anti-inflammatory substance. Clinical studies support the advantages of topically applied plant extracts, which include reducing pigmentation, lowering skin redness, and improving fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, the growing disposable income and high standards of living further promotes the cosmeceutical market growth.
Korea's culture places a lot of emphasis on looks, and as a result, many individuals have undergone plastic surgery and used skincare and cosmetics to match the expected image of their nation. The craze around Korean skincare and cosmetics recently began with the Korean wave. People feel embarrassed by their natural characteristics as a result of the glorifying of unhealthy and unattainable beauty standards, which often impair their self-esteem. In order to conform to the standards, people spend a lot of money on beauty products, which boosts the cosmeceutical market growth in South Korea.
