Conventional skincare products include preservatives that keep the products fresh, safe and effective for up to a couple of years. However, many chemical preservatives, like parabens or phenoxyethanol, have been shown to irritate the skin and disrupt hormones.

While some clean beauty products have a shorter shelf life, chemist Dr. Louie Kim created and patented a self-preservation formula that keeps his products fresh. The founder of DrLOUIE Skin and Hair Care launched the brand in 2005, using his extensive background in formulating personal care products for many international brands.

Dr. Kim’s philosophy is that by using the right products with carefully chosen clean ingredients that are formulated to work together safely but effectively, our skin’s natural ability to heal itself can be maximized.

This philosophy is integral to all the products DrLOUIE makes, but is particularly relevant in the brand’s Revitalizing All-In-One Essence, a finalist in the CertClean 2021 Clean Beauty Awards.

We spoke with DrLOUIE customer support manager Cassidy Kim about this amazing product.

Why did you create this product? What need were you fulfilling?

Anti-aging skincare routines often consist of four to eight different steps that address different concerns of mature, aging skin: dryness, lack of fitness, age spots, dull skin tone, and enlarged pores to name a few.

But layering too many products can be suffocating for the skin as there is a limited amount of nutrients that the skin can absorb. This can lead to products clumping and clogging pores, causing skin troubles. And sometimes, active ingredients that should not be used together can be layered on the skin, irritating the skin.

DrLOUIE All-in-One Essence was created to address various signs of aging skin while eliminating the need to apply different products for different benefits. Furthermore, it is specifically formulated so that there is no need to separately apply toner, serum, and moisturizer, hence the name “All-in-One.”

Formulated for busy moms with children wanting attention 24/7, career women with little time to spend taking care of their skin, or retirees enjoying a beautiful day out in the sun, All-in-One Essence addresses the common concerns that people with mature skin have while freeing up their mornings and nights by eliminating the need to apply any other products.

On top of that, it is a multivitamin essence with Vitamins C, E, B2, B5, and hyaluronic acid, which are necessary for healthy-looking skin.

Money and time saved!

What does being named as a Clean Beauty Award finalist mean to you?

We are deeply honoured to be named as a finalist especially because there were many brands with wonderful products that participated in this year’s Clean Beauty Awards. We are extremely grateful that renowned judges, who are so well versed in clean beauty, ingredients, and wellbeing chose our products as finalists for the awards. And this also gave us the motivation to continue to improve our products to contribute to the clean beauty industry and to offer our customers and potential customers the products that will deliver actual results without compromising the long-term health of their skin.

Why is being a clean beauty brand important?

Dr. Kim, the founder, has always believed in and placed utmost importance on the skin’s natural ability to heal. His goal was to help the skin by using skin-friendly, safe ingredients that boost the skin’s natural ability in delaying the signs of aging without the use of aggressive ingredients or invasive treatments. Any ingredients that are considered effective but dangerous for the skin may work to delay signs of aging in a short period of time, but they can compromise the health of our skin in the long run.

Dr. Kim’s approach has always been to pioneer a simple solution that can actually deliver results slowly but effectively, without compromising the skin barrier and the health of the skin and make the strong healthier in the long run.
