In a small village in South Korea, a family of healers started documenting the medicinal benefits of local herbs & plants. This work would provide the foundation for what would later become the Dongui Bogam, meaning “a priceless book about medicines of an Eastern country.”
Known as a classic in the history of Eastern medicine, it is still used today in countries and is a key reference work for the study of Eastern medicine.
In the 1940’s, a decsendant, Ms. Lee Myeong Jo used the Dongui Bogam to create a skin cream meant to help heal scar and burn victims. The cream was so effective and popular that patients from all corners of the country sought treatment.
Daughter Lee Min Jun carried on the healing tradition when founding Saranghae some 20 years ago. Finding many harmful ingredients in North American skin care products, she started selling her mother’s homemade skincare creams from her university dorm room with astonishing success.
Saranghae skillfully combines ancient traditions with modern anti-aging techniques. We are the first company ever to study and commercialize the healing and anti-aging benefits of the Sang Hwang (Phellinus Linteus) mushroom.
Saranghae is blazing a new and exciting path for Korean beauty with our powerful, proprietary and patented technological breakthroughs: Supercritical fluid extraction of botanical ingredients and natural preservative SH-Napre.
We are eager to deliver world class customer experience – from our CEO down to our customer service agents.
Our goal is to share the best of Korean beauty with the world and this starts (but never ends) with truly exceptional customer experience. We humbly thank all of our customers who contributed to our success thus far and we are excited to share this journey with you.
