We are...pioneers, perfectionists & MAD scientists! Our innovations are made possible by the best and brightest minds in our industry. Our ongoing Research & Development partnership with the University of Seoul in South Korea is now the model followed by dozens of other brands. This partnership has created two revolutionary and award winning technologies that has made Saranghae into a world leader in natural botanical ingredient extraction.
Ever wonder why cosmetics companies didn’t use natural ingredients from the beginning? Two reasons: technology and cost. The technology needed to extract active ingredients from botanicals was limited so the cost to extract and purify was extremely high. In addition, these active compounds would spoil quickly.
That is the reason most cosmetics companies use chemical based active ingredients. They are predictable, stable and cheaper to manufacture. To be fair, there are no health issues when used in small doses. The problem is that long-term use of these chemical ingredients are now beginning to show negative side effects.
Cosmetics companies always knew that natural ingredients would prove more effective and beneficial but they couldn’t find a way keep it stable, nor did they feel the need to pay more for it.
Saranghae’s first breakthrough is called Supercritical Fluid Extraction and this revolutionary extraction technology is profoundly changing the way we use natural ingredients for skin care.
Supercritical fluid extraction allows us to separately extract active compounds from complicated organic matter as polar ad non-polar entities at the same time through precise control of temperature and pressure at the supercritical state.
This proprietary and ground-breaking technology allows Saranghae to offer high potency active compounds derived from natural ingredients at a fraction of the price.
You’ve heard the statement “Oil and Water Don’t Mix”. That statement is true for different oils of differing viscosities as well. For example, try blending olive oil with motor oil. You will notice the two oils separate. So how do cosmetics companies successfully blend variety of oils with differing viscosities? The cheapest and most popular method is to use chemical emulsifiers. But again, these chemical emulsifiers have proven to be unhealthy over long term use and can even dry out and age your skin more.
Saranghae wanted to find a safer method of emulsifying natural oils of differing viscosities without the use of chemical emulsifiers. The result is our patented and award-winning technology called SH-NapreTM using a protocol called Multiple Liquid Crystal Emulsion.
Winner of the Korean National Research & Development competition and developed in conjunction with the esteemed research team from Seoul National University, the SH-NapreTM technology extracts the supercritical fluids of 5 Asian Botanicals and emulsifies them through Multiple Crystal Emulsion for maximum stability and efficacy.
The result is a unique and patented technology that allows us to delivery powerful, natural and effective products at an incredible price to our customers.
There is no formulation like it in the world. Saranghae's active ingredients are derived from rare and powerful botanicals that grow in nutrient rich volcanic soil on the island of Jeju, South Korea.
