COSMAX, one of the leading OEM / ODM manufacturers in Korea has shared the surprising product going viral in Thailand - its a small-capacity cosmetic patch. They've sold 80 million of them this year already and have no plans to slow down.
So what are the products? They're tiny pouches usually used for sample sizes in other countries. But in Thailand, they've established themselves as their own product category. Great for 1-4 uses, these tiny pouches are being used by Thai consumers to try a range of different products. They can be used to hold lotions, creams, SPF, sleeping masks and even lip tint and mascara.
COSMAX announced that it plans to produce another 22 million of them by the end of the year. They're going so viral that sales will represent approximately 30% of COSMAX Thailand's total sales!
The MFDS is once again cracking down on unfair advertising. Products claiming to produce therapeutic or drug like benefits (whitening, improving wrinkles) etc need to have the proper certifications to make these claims. However, more than 200 cases and 226 violations were discovered, particularly amongst online ads. Many of the contravening ads included false and/or exaggerated claims about ordinary cosmetic products. In addition, false or misleading images were also caught up. Scar creams were a culprit here too.
Teens face some specific skincare concerns driven by hormonal changes, excess sebum and acne. One of the great benefits of K-Beauty is that it’s focused on promoting healthy and well-nourished skin. This makes it ideal for teen skin, albeit with a few tweaks.
Importantly, teens don't need to follow the same routine as adults, nor do they need as many steps. For more in-depth tips for teens, tune into this episode of the podcast.
If you're after a quick solution, we’ve put together a skincare set that’s perfect for teen skin.

"I’m a recent subscriber but I have been listening to one to two and day and absolutely loving the info and discussions. I’m a 34 yo mom with mixed Asian skin and I always struggled with acne and combination skin. I immediately fell in love with k beauty back in 2012 but it was so difficult to get in Canada, and I was resolved to get back into western brands. However now I have so much access to so many brands and it’s overwhelming. I thought about seeing if anyone was talking about k beauty products and luckily found this one. I have enjoyed every podcast I’ve listened to so far and can’t wait to hear more. Thank you for making my hot mom walks and doing the dishes so much more enjoyable 😄. I can’t wait to dive back into k beauty again."
