5 Gender-Neutral Korean Skincare Products To Add To Your New Year Skincare Regime

January 04, 2022 | by Preeti Singh

From a young age, we are conditioned to classify certain colours, scents, toys, and products as ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’. The same pattern is clearly visible in the beauty industry, from colour schemes, packaging, and price, the way self-care and grooming products are marketed to men and women are very different. And the unnecessary ‘pink tax’ doesn’t make any sense at all. But thanks to newly emerging brands for changing the dynamics by launching inclusive products lines that do not discriminate and are considered gender-neutral. And K-Beauty is yet another paradigm wherein beauty is truly meant for all. From skincare, haircare, or makeup, their message is very clear that beauty is, in fact, genderless.

So, here’s the list of 5 Korean skincare products that are gender-neutral:

1. Sun Attitude Sunscreen By Mauve Fantasticever

June Yoo founded K-beauty brand Mauve Fantasticever, a fully gender-neutral line built for efficacy and inclusion but specifically calling out issues like racial justice, LGBTQ+ representation, and inclusivity around those with disabilities. Mauve Fantasticever’s products are unconventional and genuinely appealing, especially the serum-like ultra-moisturizing sunscreen that is a match made in heaven for every skin type. It has the most various and extensive UV filters that provide both protection from UVA and UVB. It has both organic as well as mineral filters (titanium dioxide). With CNF, a natural moisturizing ingredient, and squalene which is suitable for everyone with all skin types, this sunscreen will leave your skin hydrated and securely protected from UV radiation. It has a condensed milk gel-cream texture that spreads well upon application and doesn’t leave any white-cast but a dewy glow finishes without any greasiness throughout the day.


2. Lumière Vital C By FEMMUE

Who doesn’t want glowy skin that shines bright like a diamond? Well, I know diamonds reflect but you get it. Femmue introduces this oil in a bold way as a ‘paragon of how face oils should feel and work’ and it’s hard to disagree. This oil is ideal for oil lovers as well as for people who are still skeptical about using oil. The Lumière Vital C will help you achieve that gorgeous glow sans a drop of makeup. Femmue Lumiere Vital C Serum can help turn back the hands of time and restore that radiance of youth and also soothe skin. If you are looking for something natural, this oil is a must-try.

3. Youth Producer Serum By Mauve Fantasticever

Another product from the Mauve Fantasticever brand that is committed to erasing existing gender barriers in beauty is Youth Producer Serum. Their youth producer serum is an antioxidant-rich serum that helps with dehydrated and dull skin. If your skin is dry and cracky, your skin would benefit so much from this product. The serum has this gel-water-like consistency and pumps out like a gel but then spreads like a burst of water on your skin. This is a great serum for those who just started getting into skincare. They are basic, packed with antioxidant-rich ingredients, and also feel super light.

4. N.M.F Intensive Hydrating Mask By MEDIHEAL

Today, sheet masks are becoming the most widely adapted beauty regime. It’s rapidly turning to be an indispensable part of the skincare routine of people belonging to any gender across the globe. Sheet masks aim at hydrating, balancing, moisturizing, calming, and brightening your skin and one brand that you can blindly trust when it comes to a perfect sheet mask for your skin is Mediheal. Their N.M.F INTENSIVE HYDRATING MASK is made up of cotton and soaked in serum. Its cotton material is so soaked in serum. The hyaluronic acid-infused formula will make your parched skin feel plump and refreshed. Mediheal is known for using Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) to quench dry skin by locking in natural moisture for long-lasting hydration and it is very popular.

5. Cleanser By Panacea

Panacea is one of the recent gender-neutral skin-care brands to hit the market. It targets “gender-agnostic” skin concerns with a streamlined range of products inspired by the K-beauty philosophy. The sulfate-free cleanser is admittedly the best gender-neutral product in Panacea’s three-step kit. The gentle yet hydrating cleansing agent is derived from coconut oil. The cleanser is light and helps rid pores of impurities while preventing stripping and dehydration. The cleanser is equipped with algae extract that helps brighten, smooth, and soften the skin over time.

As we are moving forward, we are getting many choices in skincare and grooming solutions that focus on skin type and areas of concern, rather than gender. Now it’s our call if we still want that pink and blue packaging or go for gender-neutral products.
