Ingredient spotlight: Allantoin

Ingredient spotlight: Allantoin

At Soon Skincare, we’re all about embracing the Korean beauty principle of smooth skin and pure ingredients. Soon is Korean for ‘smooth’ and ‘pure’ after all, so we mean it. 

One of our favorite skin-smoothing ingredients is allantoin. Naturally found in comfrey plants, chamomile and sugar beets, allantoin is  highly versatile and plays an important role in Korean skincare. Its hydrating, soothing and reduces inflammation, making it a great addition to dry and sensitive skin regimens or for use alongside potentially irritating ingredients such as retinol. It also works as a skin protectant and promotes healing so you’ll find it in sunscreens and acne products.  

Another reason we love allantoin is for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Seriously, we love it so much we’ve added it to just about all of our face masks, eye patches and lip masks. We can’t get enough of it. Allantoin protects against environmental damage, meaning it encourages long-term healthy skin (so, no wrinkles or dark spots here). Studies have also shown that allantoin can encourage the production of new collagen. 

That’s a lot of responsibility for an ingredient that doesn’t get much attention. But we’d like to change that. Try allantoin in:

The Scoop on Eye Patches

The Scoop on Eye Patches

One of the easiest ways to give your skin a glow up is with eye patches. A Korean skincare favorite, hydrogel eye patches are lightweight masks shaped to hug the under eye area. They’re packed with restorative ingredients and give much needed love and attention to the most delicate skin on your face, that is often the first area to show signs of aging.

Eye patches are ahhh-maz-ing as skin prep for makeup or to wind down the day. Pop them on for 15-20 minutes at least once a week to instantly depuff, brighten and hydrate,, and give you long-term benefits like reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Try them:

  • While you get ready in the morning. Drink coffee, make the bed and prep breakfast all while wearing your eye patches.
  • Before a wedding or event. Apply eye patches post-face cleansing so your skin can soak up all the goodness while you get your hair or nails done, steam a gown or pop a little bubbly.
  • After a long workday. Nurture your under eyes after a long day of hustling. Busy workdays can really take a toll. We get it, sometimes we forget to drink water and take breaks too.

Soon Skincare has three eye patch formulas that can be used on all skin types to target your skin’s under eye needs. So whether you’re sleep deprived, dehydrated, stressed or looking for a little extra luxury, we’ve got you covered.

Renew the under eye area with Golden Eye 24K Gold Hydrogel Eye Patches, formulated with 24K gold (seriously!), allantoin and glycerin. These patches increase skin elasticity, hydrate and slow the loss of collagen. Plus, they look totally glam.

Depuff with Pomegranate Hydrogel Eye Patches with Collagen. Pomegranate, caffeine and niacinamide help to reduce puffiness, hydrate and plump the under eye area, and minimize the appearance of fine lines. The addition of marine collagen replenishes the skin’s natural loss of collagen as you age. 

Correct with Hydrating Blueberry Hydrogel Eye Patches formulated with blueberry, marine collagen and hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate your eye areas. Reduce dark circles, soften and plump the skin, and diminish fine lines and crow's feet.
