Skincare that works as hard as you do.

"Glow from within." - SOLYPH is skincare for active people by active people.

If you are like us, you too dream of endlessly glowing skin - just like in that post-workout selfie. But between work and working out, our skin is constantly under the stress of sweat, sun exposure, and environmental pollution. This is why we've set out to create effective, everyday products for healthy skin. In other words, skincare that does the heavy lifting.

Our philosophy is simple - holistic skincare for an active lifestyle.

We believe in the magic of natural ingredients. The name 'SOLYPH' is inspired by the Korean word for ‘Pine Leaf’ (솔잎) - our hero ingredient that restores and protects the skin. Along with other active ingredients that were thoughtfully selected to work wonders. Made for everyone, our products are formulated to care for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin.

We continuously invest in skincare that is safe for you and our planet, eliminating synthetic and harmful ingredients. All products are proudly produced in South Korea, according to strict cosmetic standards.

Our debut Essentials collection feature six skincare staples that perform individually or as a complete routine. We even made sure we could glow on-the go with compact and travel-friendly packaging.

Join us in embracing everything about being active - the sweat, the sun and the sexy glow.

Water is a key component in skincare products, making up the majority of most formulations. Our base water of choice is distilled Pine Leaf water.

Pine Leaf is high in antioxidants that protects your skin from damage by free radicals, and HMF, an organic compound that prevents the excessive production of melanin caused by UV rays. Pine Leaf also bears antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that help strengthen the skin's barrier.

Beginning with fresh Pine Leaf, we harvest from the lush forests of Pyeong Chang, where the trees flourish under peak natural conditions including optimal temperatures, fertile soil, and ample sunlight. Korean Pine Leaf, distinguished by its long and elastic needle, is known to emit high quality Phytoncides, the compound in plants that gives off the 'scent of the forest'. Phytoncides possess immense healing properties, that have been long enjoyed in the practice of Forest Bathing.

Once harvested at their peak, our artisans set off to work to harness the pine leaves at their prime. They employ a traditional distillation method to extract maximum benefits - steaming the leaves with pure mountain water, before collecting the distilled Pine Leaf water drop by drop. This base water then becomes the foundation of our formulas. 

Finally, our base water is thoughtfully blended with other natural active ingredients to create SOLYPH skincare. Manufactured in South Korea, our CGMP and COSMOS certified lab is where the efficacy of clean clinical skincare and the superiority of natural ingredients are combined. Our method of Clean Nature Science leverages both advanced technology and traditional techniques to source, research, and formulate all-natural formulas that are clinically effective and mindfully made.

  • Full of Active Ingredients
  • Free of Unfriendly Ingredients

Synthetic fragrances

    Used widely in skincare and cosmetics, synthetic fragrances are commonly derived from petrochemicals to create an artificial scent in products. However, synthetic fragrances are rarely specified and may contain hazardous chemicals that cause skin irritation, and potentially, hormonal disruption that impact reproductivity.

Sulfates 

    A chemical cleaning agent added to personal care products including soap and shampoo to create lather. However, sulfates may cause dryness, redness or itchiness in sensitive skin, as well as eye and respiratory irritation.

Mineral oil

    Used in multiple products such as body oils and moisturizers to create slip or a glossy texture. However, mineral oil is comedogenic and sits on the skin surface, causing clogged pores that increase the likelihood of acne.

Parabens

    Chemical preservatives widely used in skincare and cosmetic products in the form of butylparaben, methylparaben or propylparaben to kill bacteria and prolong product shelf life. However, parabens may cause skin irritation and hormonal disruption. Parabens have also been found to penetrate the skin and remain within body tissue.

Propylene glycol 

    A synthetic humectant derived from petrochemicals, added in skincare to attract active ingredients and enhance penetration. However, propylene glycol is a strong irritant that may cause skin irritation and increase skin sensitivity.

Silicones

    A common ingredient in skincare and cosmetic products that makes the skin appear smoother by filling in pores and fine lines. However, silicones create a barrier on the skin surface, that prevents moisture absorption and clogs pores, which increases the likelihood of acne.

Ethanolamines 

    An emulsifier used in cosmetic and cleaning products in the form of DEA, TEA, MEA or ETA to bind water and oil-soluble compounds. However, prolonged use of ethanolamines may lead to skin irritation and hormonal abnormalities.

Cocamidopropyl betaine 

    A synthetic detergent used in infant and personal care products as an emulsifier and a thickening agent. However, cocamidopropyl betaine may cause skin discomfort such as tightness, redness and itchiness, as well as other reactions in allergic individuals.

Chemical sunscreen 

    Chemical compounds used widely in lightweight sunscreen formulas for protection from UVA and UVB rays. However, chemical sunscreen absorbs through the skin and may cause skin irritation and hormonal disruption.

Phenoxyethanol 

    A synthetic preservative used widely in skincare and cosmetic products to kill bacteria and prolong product shelf life.However, phenoxyethanol may cause skin irritation, and more severely, organ damage and nervous system damage over long term use.

Animal by-products

    Animal at, oil or musk used widely in skincare and cosmetic products, including lipsticks and moisturisers as a binding agent. However, these are non-vegan and non-cruelty free ingredients that may cause skin irritation.

Synthetic colorant 

    Widely added in skincare and cosmetic products for aesthetic purposes. However, artificial colorants often comprise of several synthetic chemicals that may cause skin irritation and increase skin sensitivity.
