The Rediscovery

A Journey That Started with the Rediscovery of Colostrum

Farmskin found out that colostrum of cows, which has not been utilized as resources in rural areas of Korea,
is considered valuable and used in various fields in foreign countries.
Since then, we begun research on colostrum in cooperation with Konkuk University,
a leader in agriculture and livestock bioscience.

Through persistent researches, Farmskin discovered that colostrum is an optimized ingredient for cosmetics,
and developed its own colostrum processing technology that can deliver it to our skin intact.

Farmskin will continue its effort for your healthy skin by re-discovering
potentials of nutritious raw materials from rural areas fortified with science.

CEO Message

Hello, I am Taeil Kwak, the CEO of Farmskin.

I grew up in a rural village called Soro-ri where buses came in only a few times a day. At that time, I used to work at my father is pig farm after school. After helping my father, my hands smelled bad, and I was ashamed to tell my friends, “My father is a farmer who runs a pig farm.“

Then, during my university years, I learned that the colostrum of cows, which has not been used as a resource in rural areas of Korea, is being used in various fields and considered valuable abroad. Afterward, I returned to Korea and began research on colostrum in cooperation with Konkuk University, an alma mater and a leader in agricultural and livestock science. After repeated research, we found that colostrum is an optimal cosmetic ingredient, and succeeded in developing unique colostrum processing technology to deliver its full nutrition to human skin.

The farm of rural areas that I grew up gave me a chance to rediscover the possibility of colostrum. It is no longer shameful, but a beautiful place with development potentials of co-prosperity business.

I spent a long time and effort finding mild and effective cosmetics for myself, who has sensitive acne skin since childhood. I finally found a solution for healthy skin from colostrum.

I started Farmskin for all who have sensitive skin with the sincere heart of a child, a young myself who was worried about his acne and delicate skin. But, when I realized that the first product I made with such a mind could not satisfy everyone, I fell into a big disappointment.

Just as some people are allergic to certain foods, our skin can be allergic to certain cosmetic ingredients. Even various certified cosmetic ingredients cannot be good for all.

With such experience, Farmskin will continue to produce products for everyone under Farm Skin is unique philosophy, Philo-Farm. Through Philo-Farm, we will make products that everyone in the team can confidently recommend to their loved ones, and can also contribute to the welfare of rural communities. If there is any product that does not fit the mind of Philo-Farm, we wot release it.

Farmskin aims to inspire the world through sincere heart, innovative technology, and creative design, and contribute to the development of rural communities through a model of co-prosperity with farmers.

Farmskin, connects the global market consists of more than 40 countries, including the US, China, Europe, Canada, Dubai, Russia, Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, and India, with the rural communities, continuing its effort for your healthy skin with nutritious raw materials from rural areas fortified with science.

When someone from outside Farmskin asks which company is working to make better options for people around the world and is truly contributing to the development of rural communities, we hope that the answer will be Farmskin.

We, Farmskin, will always look back to the basics and work with a renewed mind.

We hope you love and support our journey.
Thank you.
