Korea, known for its rich cultural heritage, has a long-standing tradition of using natural, fresh and balanced flavors in their cuisine. From the kimchi fermented cabbage dish, rich in probiotics and antioxidants, believed to promote gut health and boost the immune system, to medicinal mushroom extracts such as shiitake, oyster mushrooms, and reishi mushrooms, believed to have immune-boosting properties and provide essential nutrients : there are common ingredients that Koreans use in their everyday diet and are considered beneficial for health.
When we developed Clapoti products, we wanted the skincare ingredients to provide a level of nutrients comparable to the ones found in food. We then explored a selection of traditional ingredients with a natural focus, including green tea, perilla leaves, ginger, and cypress, that can benefit foot health, and indulge in a holistic approach to skincare.
Green Tea: Green tea, a staple in Korean culture, is not only a popular beverage but also a key ingredient in skincare. Known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, green tea helps to soothe and repair damaged skin. When incorporated into foot care, it aids in relieving inflammation, reducing foot odor, and providing a cooling sensation, leaving your feet feeling refreshed. Look for foot products infused with green tea extract for a revitalizing and soothing experience.
Perilla Leaves: Perilla leaves, or kkaennip in Korean, are commonly used in Korean cuisine for their distinctive flavor and health benefits. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids, perilla leaves possess anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Incorporating perilla leaf extracts into foot care products can help soothe tired and achy feet, reduce swelling, and nourish the skin, leaving your feet feeling refreshed and revitalized.
Ginger: Ginger, a spice widely used in Korean cuisine, is renowned for its medicinal properties. Its warming and invigorating nature promotes blood circulation and helps alleviate muscle soreness and fatigue. When applied to the feet, ginger-infused foot products can provide a soothing and revitalizing experience, relieving tension and promoting foot health.
Cypress: Cypress, known as hinoki in Korean, is a tree native to Korea and holds a special place in Korean culture. Cypress oil is revered for its calming and purifying effects. Incorporating cypress oil into foot care can help soothe tired feet, relieve stress, and reduce foot odor. Cypress-infused foot products offer a natural and refreshing foot care experience, transporting you to the serene forests of Korea.
By incorporating green tea, perilla leaves, ginger, and cypress into your foot care routine, you can embrace the rich heritage of Korea while reaping the benefits of their holistic approach to skincare. These traditional ingredients offer a natural focus that promotes foot health, soothes tired feet, reduces inflammation, and enhances overall well-being, allowing them to pamper your feet and leave you feeling rejuvenated, grounded, and connected to the wisdom of centuries-old traditions.
