The flower, a sign of beauty and a symbol of grace; is also magical with its ability to speak to the soul in a which words cannot express. The blossoming flower, its colors and pleasant scent emits a natural inherent vitality and surging energy that lifts the mood and comforts the heart. But there's much more to this extraordinary plant. 

AmorePacific Research Institute discovered the close relation between flowers and a woman's beauty.
Advanced research was then carried out on various flowers; from the root to its stem and petals to discover the amazing power and energy that the flowers possess. Findings the reveal that flowers contain moisturising and skin-nourishing ingredients that not only provide nourishment to the skin but also moisture and balance oil production to maintain a vibrant skin. 

Years of research concluded with the inception of a unique innovation and formulation that use floral extraction to re-invent beauty. AmorePacific named its innovation Mamonde, a brand that inspires feminine beauty with flowers through its flower science technology.
