The History of Whoo’s Bichup Self-generating Anti-aging Essence Special Edition is the crown jewel you need for skin that stays lovelier for longer
times have changed but our quest for perfection remains relentless. And royal beauty secrets are the epitome of skincare through the ages.
The History of Whoo, for one, draws on traditions and rituals of ancient courts in Korea. Renowned for its knowledge and practice of oriental medicine, the courts successfully concocted skincare and makeup formulations for the queens. And these beauty and wellness secrets have become an integral component of Korea’s glorious cultural legacy.
In 2003, the South Korean government decided to commission LG Household & Health Care to produce holistic, premium skincare. Studying and reinterpreting these royal routines and combining them with modern technologies led to the birth of The History of Whoo.
Key to these royal routines was the Gongjinbidan Complex, an ingredient made from six herbs: Siberian deer antler, angelica root, cornelian cherries, acanthopanax root bark, asparagus root and wild thyme. Together, they supposedly help improve circulation of blood and energy to bring about younger, healthier and brighter skin. As such, every product by The History of Whoo features Gongjinbidan Complex.
Among the most iconic of the K- beauty mammoth’s products is the Bichup SelfGenerating Anti-aging Essence, which has sold more than 5 million bottles globally! A multitasker
like no other, this gel- like essence is designed to identify the root cause of your skin’s weaknesses before bringing about self- repair. Expect a galore of benefits, with improvements in wrinkles, elasticity, moisture, skin tone and turnover.

In addition to Gongjinbidan Complex, the Essence also includes two herbal blends, Cheongsimbidan and Gyeongoakbidan. By boosting detoxification and inhibiting premature ageing respectively, these help your skin stay smooth and flawless. To further power its anti-ageing properties is Cho Jahabidan, a plant placenta extract that hastens healing from within.
Bichup Self- Generating Anti-aging Essence can be used after your toner. Apply on your face and massage gently into skin.
Fans of the Bichup Self- Generating Anti-aging Essence will be pleased to know it now has a Special Edition. Each breathtakingly beautiful bottle is inspired by the elegant Hongwonsam (red) and Nokwonsam (green) ceremonial robes donned by Joseon empresses as they admired the blooms of Mount Ami in Gyotaejeon, Gyeongbokgung Palace.
