Tea tree leaf water and various herb extracts (jojoba seed, artemisia annua, calendula, and comfrey leaf) in the AC Control Care Skintoner help to soothe irritation and protect skin from harmful environmental factors. This Swanicoco toner also contains hydrolized algin, a submarine plant, which is chock full of mineral and fatty acids that gently exfoliates for smoother skin. Ceramide, another key ingredient, infuses the skin with long-lasting moisture that strengthens the skin’s elasticity. Living up to its name, this skintoner helps control easily irritated, sensitive skin and effectively controls sebum—it’s particularly recommended for teenagers or young adults with blemished, oily, and acne-prone skin.
After cleansing, pump a moderate amount into the palm of your hands and gently apply evenly over your face. Pat gently to promote full absorption.

Beauty brands that claim to be nature-based are a dime a dozen in South Korea, but Swanicoco takes that claim seriously. With the commitment to ensuring that each Swanicoco product consists of 90% to 100% natural ingredients, Swanicoco has risen to the top of Rankey.com’s list of natural cosmetics in Korea. And it’s no wonder. Beloved for their standout products like the Bitamin C line, the Centella Asiatica Salve (an editor favorite), and PHA 10% Coco Soft Peeling Cream, Swanicoco is on a mission to disprove the notion that natural ingredients are less effective. Swanicoco harnesses Korea’s high-tech biotechnology to provide products with not just time-honored botanical ingredients but those that are science-based, ranging from epidermal growth factors to snail mucin to fermented ingredients. Originally founded in 2000 by Seong Chunseon as a way to treat her family’s sensitive skin, Swanicoco soon expanded to a business after Seong started getting rave reviews of her naturally fermented soaps from her neighbors. Today, Swanicoco boasts a collection of over 150 products, ranging from skincare and color cosmetics to hair and body care and, of course, Seong’s fermented soaps (now offered in nine varieties). There are 28 Swanicoco retail locations throughout Korea as well as a robust online presence. A favorite of insiders in the beauty community, Swanicoco continues to operate in the spirit of its founder, making each product as if it were for their own family.
