  • Coreana Introduction


Coreana Songpa R&D Center
Presenting the trend of the future technology, the birthplace of Coreana Cosmetics R&D
The core ideology and driving force of Coreana Cosmetics is ‘the mindset in pursuit of great value’. It was possible because there was full support and interest in R&D.
Songpa R&D Center was established in 1995, and in May 2005, we took a step forward as a researcher that increases customer value and secures future competitiveness with a focus on life science.
‘Songpa R&D Center’ holds 500 domestic and foreign patents. In particular, the research team focused on developing cosmetics has been reorganized and operated as a life science research system to develop new materials and formulations for cosmetics, as well as human body products and medicine.
We are expanding the scope of our research by combining comprehensive life science fields such as the development of new science-related materials.
