Research on Korean Fragrant Plants
Amorepacific R&D Center makes differentiated and unique essential oils of Korean Fragrant Plants. Inspired by natural scents and plants’ efficacies, we conduct R&D on the natural ingredients native to Korea. Through our dedication to extract the best quality essential oils, we collaborate with raw material suppliers throughout the entire production process from cultivation, harvesting, and post processing, to ensure the best raw materials. These ingredients are applied to HANYUL Yuja line and Pure Artemisia line products. In addition, Amorepacific ensures various skin efficacy and sensuous benefits to enhance the value of the ingredients.
Advancement of Fragranced Plant Extraction Technology
Making Korea’s native fragranced plants into ingredients to use in products requires a series of process to extract oil, thereby extracting essential oils in the form of ingredients. Amorepacific R&D Center studies the characteristics of fragrant plants and the most optimized method of extraction per different materials to extract according to different characteristics and creating the methods into technologies. Examples include steam distillation, expression, and supercritical fluid extraction method. We extract essential oils using the most appropriate method according to the plant’s type and characteristics. In addition, we collaborate with ingredient companies to expand our technologies, further advancing our extraction technology research, which is key to making Korea’s native fragranced plants into ingredients.
Enhancing Value by Adding Ingredient to Fragrance
Amorepacific conducts research to make residual water content and plant residue left after extracting essential oils from fragranced plants into ingredients so that we don’t overlook the efficacy and stories they hold. By using the entire plant from top to bottom, we are dedicated to studying ways to enhance the value of Korean native plants to maximum. To this end, Amorepacific R&D Center, raw material suppliers, and ingredient companies closely collaborate and share technology with the commitment to sustain the development of essential oils using Korean Fragrant Plants.
