Founded over 20 years ago, SMD Cosmetics was one of the first Korean natural, luxury skin care companies to powerfully combine advanced technology with ancient herbal medicine. We are proud to offer between 35-65 powerful, active ingredients in a single formulation—compared to most products on the market that have only 1-3 active ingredients. Everything about SMD Cosmetics is meticulous and held to the highest standard of excellence. In South Korea, we continue to be the only cosmetic company to have ever been awarded the Presidential Award for Excellence. We proudly remain dedicated to being natural, safe, non-toxic, dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic, cruelty free, paraben-free, gluten-free and environmentally friendly. We never test on animals. We are a high conscious company that values ethical and socially responsible actions.
SMD Cosmetics is completely vertically integrated, which means we own every step of the process from research/development to manufacturing. We use only top quality ingredients, advanced technology and meticulous, labor-intensive processes, help to ensure that our products are truly the best. Our 39 patents guarantee that our proprietary formulations truly unique. Our Inhyunjin line has been certified by the Korean FDA as a proven anti-aging group of products. While SMD manufactures over 400 different products in South Korea, we are proud to be launching 14 exclusive formulations, here in the United States.
LAUREN’S SKIN STORY
After years of struggling with sensitive, acne-prone, dry, reactive, combination skin, terrible skin, which caused me to feel self-conscious, depressed and hopeless about myself and my skin, I almost gave up. I had tried all types of products and even changed my diet. Nothing showed lasting results and I still faced irritated, angry skin. I truly understand the process of searching, hoping and wishing for a miracle and being disappointed and let down by products that over-promise and under-deliver. My skin is happy now and after many years of being a dedicated user, I am fulfilling my dream of bringing this amazing line of skin care products to the United States. My story began the start of SMD Cosmetics.

AMOREENA'S SKIN STORY
I found myself as an adult fighting acne, as well as many other skin issues, so by the time I met Lauren, I was already deep into my search to find relief. I sought out weekly facials, dermatologists, medication, supplements, eliminated food groups, experimented with chemical peels. You name it, I tried it. After testing positive for the BRCA cancer genetic gene several years ago, I decided I needed to take a walk down the natural, safe and non-toxic path.
Now, after using SMD Cosmetics for the past two years, I’m continually amazed that I no longer have to fight the constant acne war. It is now my passion to share with others my story and help others feel good about their skin!
