Nestled in Korea lies a fertile oasis, Jeju Island, the Island of Gods. Its volcanic origins gave life to a unique ecosystem which is naturally mineral-rich, geothermic and blessed by spring waters. It is in this volcano fortified landscape that we found potent beauty ingredients – Volcanic Lava Ash, Camellia Oil, Yugdugu, and White Lotus amongst others. We crafted the bounty of Jeju into a sensorial escape from the fast-pace of daily life, and a rejuvenating moment to nurture healthy skin and hair in perfect harmony with nature.
Top 5 Things To Do When Visiting Jeju Islands
- Mount Hallasan
A UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, it is Korea's highest mountain peak. Conveniently located in the centre of Jeju islands, it is a dormant volcano and possible to trek in a day. If you are not up to the trek, you can take one of the seven scenic trails, which are up to 10 kilometres each.
- Cheonjeyeon Waterfall
Cheonjeyeon Waterfall or the Pond of God has three sections and falls down from the ceiling of a cave!

It is covered in a blanket of yellow rapeseed flowers, during spring, making it a not-to-be-missed climb.
- Jeongbang Falls
Located at the top of a high cliff by the sea, it is Asia's only waterfall which falls directly into the ocean. The words “Seobulgwacha”, inscribed on the walls of the waterfall, remind of Seobul, a servant of the Chinese Emperor Jin, who passed by this place. You can also experience some raw sea urchin sashimi sold by "ajhummas" (middle-aged women).
- Manjanggul Cave
The UNESCO World Heritage sites don't seem to be ending when it comes to Jeju Islands. Its a beautiful long lava tunnel, which got formed 2.5+ million years ago. While the tunnel is close to 13 km long, only a small portion of the tunnel is open to tourists. It's a good idea to carry some warm clothes, as it can get pretty chilly inside the tunnel. And those with a fear of bats, are advised to be careful, the tunnel has a lively
