Brand Spotlight: Pyunkang Yul

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Korean skin care brand Pyunkang Yul was launched by the Pyunkang Eastern Medicine Clinic in 2016. The Korean word pyunkang refers to the health of the tonsils and lungs. The Pyunkang Eastern Medicine Clinic believes that detoxifying the lungs helps strengthen the tonsils – the largest lymphatic gland in our bodies – resulting in a stronger lymphatic and hence immune system to defend against skin diseases. In over 47 years, Pyunkang Eastern Medicine Clinic has treated more than 150,000 patients for chronic skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis using this approach.

Abandoning superfluous components such as fragrance and artificial colorings, Pyunkang Yul prides itself for utilizing only essential ingredients in its skin care products. The Korean beauty brand believes that its simple and straightforward formulas are the answer to boost the body’s ability to heal its own skin concerns.
