K-Bright from Korea
Give your skincare regime a much-needed boost with K-Bright Icy Lock, South Korea’s latest innovation. It freeze-dries natural ingredients until they are activated with K-Bright’s Illuminating Serum and applied onto skin. It uses the latest bio-science in Korea combined with the heritage of cold preservation. Active ingredients can deteriorate and become weak when exposed to air, light and moisture but Icy-Lock keeps them in their original state, to ensure it remains fresh and its potency is enhanced by up to three times. One of the key ingredients fused with the Icy-Lock technology is 35 percent pure Vitamin C which triples the brightening effect on skin. Trust the Koreans to know how to glow-up!
Icy-Lock uses a three-step process to preserve the active ingredients; flash freezing right after harvesting at temperatures of -18°C to -50°C, slow drying where liquid is vaporised out for 24 to 60 hours to turn the pure actives into The Booster Pearl powder, and lastly, freshness-controlled packaging to seal ensure no moisture or air can seep through them.
