ORORA - BEST MOISTURIZER 2022
"Easy to spread and hydrates well. Delightfully rich vegan collagen cream, which also boasts several other skin- plumping ingredients"
"My hyper-pigmentation, inflammation, and scarring—all caused by picking at my face—has drastically improved."
"Incredibly luxurious, especially at this price point. Saranghae's 5 step could easily cost 3 times as much and still be worth it."
"Simply the best cleanser you'll ever try. It's a unique cleansing experience."
'Sa - Rang - Hae' means 'I love you' in Korean.
We are a Korean Beauty company that marries ancient Asian medicinal philosophies with modern anti-aging science. Our journey started when our spiritual founder Myeong-Jo Lee originally wanted to create a skin cream to help her sister heal from burn scars. After 2 years of trials, Myeong-Jo found that not only did her formulation help heal scarring, it reduced wrinkles, and improved skin firmness and resiliency.
In 2016 her son and current CEO Peter Lee together with his wife Andrea Mourad created the brand Saranghae with the dream of sharing his mother's creations with the world. His desire to share the very best of his mother's work and Korean culture is the driving force behind Saranghae's passion.
Today, Saranghae, along with our sister brand Orora Skin Science, is one of the most trusted and fastest growing Korean beauty brands in North America. Among our customers, we are known for offering cost effective foundational skincare routines to help with anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and foundational skin health.
Our commitment to exceptional customer care is legendary, and though we have grown so much from our early days, we haven’t forgotten who we are. We are still a trusted, family run skincare company that highly values the people we lovingly serve by offering the very best of performance Korean skincare.
"Being able to help millions of women worldwide feel beautiful every day while paying homage to my mother’s life’s work is a dream come true. Today, Andrea and I are proud and extremely grateful to share Saranghae Means I Love You with you." - Peter Lee, Co-Founder & CEO
The Magic Mushroom
The Sang Hwang mushroom, AKA Black Hoof or Phellinus Linteus mushroom in the US, is a black-yellowish, bitter-tasting mushroom that grows on mulberry trees. In Korea, it has been used to heal various ailments like migraines and skin abrasions for over 600 years. The royal family of Korea had a well-known habit of drinking Sang Hwang Mushroom tea every morning to preserve health and longevity.
In 2008, 4 researchers from the Methodist Research Institute, Cancer Research Laboratory observed that polysaccharide-protein complexes found in the mushroom demonstrated unusually high antioxidant and immunomodulating properties. In other words, the mushroom is an exceptional anti-inflammatory that's great at suppressing free radicals & oxidative stress - the stuff that prevents healing, destroys our collagen, starves our skin cells of nutrients, and creates wrinkles. Research is ongoing but shows great promise.
Saranghae Firm & Lift Regeneration Cream contains 15% concentration of organic Sang Hwang mushroom. Over the years, it has evolved to introduce new breakthroughs in anti-aging research. Today, it combines hyaluronic acid, ginseng extract, Vitamins A, E and 12 other botanical ingredients.

Pure 23.5% Vitamin C Concentrate:
Highest Concentration in the World
Topical Vitamin C is a science-backed, dermatologist favorite ingredient that helps slow down skin aging, prevent sun damage and improve dark spots and acne.
Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), is an antioxidant that fights harmful free radicals that come in contact with your skin from an external source like air pollution, or from inside the body as a result of normal biological processes. Vitamin C has been clinically proven to improve the skin’s overall health and appearance by decreasing free radicals.
The higher the concentration of Vitamin C, the greater the antioxidant absorption rate and the greater the anti-aging effect. Most brands offer Vitamin C concentrations between 10% to 20% because it is expensive and difficult to stabilize. BE.SEEN's proprietary extraction and stabilization technology enables us to offer Vitamin C concentration at 23.5%, which is currently the highest topical concentration of Vitamin C in the world.
We are proud to offer you the highest concentration and highest quality pure vitamin C concentrate in the world.
Skin Concerns: Adult acne, clarity, texture, tone
“I was always embarrassed and self-conscious - why was I the only adult I knew with adult acne? My clear skin is a game changer. I walk around the office feeling proud (and for the first time can wear my hair pulled back away from my face!).
Saranghae, you change appearances for the better, but more importantly, you give people newfound confidence. Thank you!”
Skin Concerns: Redness, texture, tone
“I suffered for years with on and off cystic acne, scarring and redness. After just a few weeks, I am in love with Saranghae. I am so happy with my results. The Complete 5 Step Routine takes care of all my concerns.”
Skin Concerns: Wrinkles & fine lines, elasticity & firmness, tone
“At 66 years old, I am concerned about my skin looking healthy and radiant, and would like to achieve this if it’s still at all possible. I know there is a huge difference in my skin. The texture of it and everything else. I have a lot of acne scars from when I was young, I was a sun worshiper so I did a lot of skin damage, so to have my face look better now than it did at 45 is huge, it’s huge!”
Skin Concerns: Tone, texture, signs of aging, elasticity & firmness
"I will continue to use these products as my face hasn’t felt this soft since high school and things are starting to look like I think they should. There is a new radiance, but more importantly, my crow’s feet have significantly diminished. Next to tackle, get rid of my crow’s feet totally (or have them only appear when I smile as they should) …"
Skin Concerns: Adult acne, tone, texture, hyperpigmentation, elasticity & firmness
“Saranghae has improved the clarity and the evenness of my skin. It has this healthy glow. I don’t have any breakouts, I’m not worried about any major hyperpigmentation, the firmness and elasticity of my skin looks good. I have people complimenting my skin left and right. People are amazed by the results”
Skin Concerns: Hyperpigmentation, overall health of skin, signs of aging (eyes), tone
“I started to see changes within the first week of using love Saranghae. By the end of 45 days my skin looked great. I’m receiving so many compliments, and inquiries asking what I’m doing for my skin now. Thank You!”
Sarah Van Leuven
Skin Concerns: Fine lines, wrinkles, tone, elasticity and firmness
“I am 44 and have been using the 5 Step Routine for two months. I am in love with these products, I couldn’t believe the results. I am so thrilled, thank you!”
Maydele Jorge VanHatten
Skin Concerns: Wrinkles & fine lines, dehydration, tone
"I've been using the products morning and night for five and a half weeks. I definitely see an overall improvement in my skin, reduced pores, less puffiness, brighter even skin tone, and dare I say it, I think my grand canyons are looking ever so slightly softened! The finer lines are definitely less noticeable"
Skin Concerns: Adult acne, tone, texture, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation
“When I say nothing else has worked for my skin before, I mean it. Finally, after years of struggling, I found a solution. This routine has reduced my acne, reduced my acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, which was an added bonus. Saranghae Five Step System has given me my confidence back! I never thought such a simple thing would change my skin so drastically, but two months later I am writing this with a fresh face and glowing skin.”
My name is Ellie, and I’m 46 years old with combination skin.
I’ve had great skin most of my life but lately my skin has been getting dry, flaky and tight during the day. What could be going on and what can I do about it?
It sounds like your skin may be showing signs of physical change brought on by hormonal fluctuations. The cause could be something simple like dietary changes or something more substantial like menopause. The best way to improve overall hydration and skin resilience is to improve your overall skin health.
We need to increase skin cell turnover, reduce oxidative stress, increase collagen/elastin production, and lastly properly moisturize the outer layer to keep your skin supple and elastic.
I’ve been a VIP member for years. I love your products and recommend it to everyone I talk to about my skin. I’m curious about retinol, something that you don’t offer in your products (YET) but seems to come up all time when the topic of skincare comes up.
Can you explain it for me? Why is it that Saranghae doesn’t offer retinol? Should I be using it?
Retinol as a chemical compound was first discovered in 1909 but wasn’t made available for anti-aging purposes until 1947. Since then, the popularity of retinol has experienced waves of highs and lows until today where it is considered an “in vogue” ingredient.
Topical retinol (Vitamin A) is used to aid in skin cell turnover, boost low levels of collagen production and said to be responsible for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing hyperpigmenation and smoothing out texture.

Let's Support Girls in STEM!
Girlstart is a not-for-profit initiative that inspires girls, specifically those in marginalized communities, to discover their potential in science, technology, engineering, and math through modern, innovative educational programs.
Though women make up 50% of our workforce, only 27% are represented in these fields. And for girls in lower socioeconomic status, the numbers become even more grim. This makes the path for those interested in STE(A)M an uphill and lonely battle, one of the key reasons Saranghae is passionately involved in the initiative.
We are proud to support girlstart, a program designed to build confidence and empower the next generation of women through education in STEM.
