"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.

Hello, I'm Heesook.
Sports and exercise has always been my outlet when it comes to balancing my physical and mental health but being active (read perspiration and sun exposure) came at the cost of my skin which protested with signs of irritation and early aging. Being South Korean, I always considered myself skincare savvy and became determined to find a routine that allows me to embrace my skin and my lifestyle.
I considered countless options, ranging from off-the-counter offerings to raved recommendations, yet I was met by a slew of brands that appealed to beauty trends and generic skincare needs. Undefeated, I set out in 2018 to create my own solution.
In the process, I learned that family and friends were afflicted by similar skin troubles while trying to lead and enjoy an active lifestyle; I became even more inspired to create products that would cater to active folk of all ages and skin types.
Today, I'm so happy to present SOLYPH - mindfully formulated skincare to complement an active lifestyle. As a brand, we stand for holistic wellness, transparency, and sustainability. We are excited for you to experience active skincare and to share this journey with us.
