Air Cushions Taking the Color Cosmetics Market in Korea by Storm

 

The Air Cushion is a liquid foundation soaked in a sponge featuring a makeup base, sun protection and skin moisturizer all in one. Originally developed by Iope, the product has taken the cosmetics world in South Korea by storm, driving the sales value of color cosmetics up by 11 percent in 2013. Air Cushion products sit light on the skin, which is especially important in the hot Korean sun. Other companies such as LG Household and Healthcare are developing their own air cushion products to capitalize on the trend, and Iope recently launched a men’s version of the product catering to the fast growing men’s cosmetics market. As the trend grows, Euromonitor expects the product to start reaching overseas into Singapore and Hong Kong.
