Cosmetic products created in South Korea

The most famous cosmetic product invented in Korea is often called BB cream, but this is a misconception. In fact, blemish balms were invented in Germany by dermatologist Kristin Schrammeck in the 1960s, and then they became popular in Asia. But CC creams (color Control cream or color Correcting cream) were developed in Korea as an improved version of BB cream. The main difference between BB creams and CC creams is that BB creams are improved versions of tonal products, while CC creams are advanced correctors with a toning effect.
