This unusual face cream from Tony Moly addresses an environmental issue that's widespread in South Korea—pollution and "yellow dust," or particles that originate from the dry desert regions of China and Mongolia.
The 'Dust and the City Face Locking Cream' is formulated with natural ingredients like kava leaf, as well as extracts from beetroot, black tea and lotus. The product is meant to be applied like a protective gel that goes on after one has applied makeup, which sits on the skin like a protective layer to prevent the absorption of dust and other impurities.
When it comes to protecting one's skin with cosmetic products, consumers have come to understand that it is a priority to shield their skin from powerful UV rays. However, anti-pollution skincare products are taking precedence in areas of the world where air quality is even more top-of-mind.
