Innisfree, like lluillui, focuses on using natural ingredients in all of its skincare products. At lluillui, we appreciate the fact that Innisfree products are formulated without harmful chemicals and preservatives.

Jeju Island and innisfree
What makes Innisfree so unique is their connection to Jeju Island. Innisfree responsibly sources their ingredients from Jeju Island in Korea. In regards to Jeju Island, Innisfree states, “Thanks to its volcanic origins, this fertile oasis has a unique ecosystem with unparalleled resources to nurture beautiful skin. Our proprietary extraction methods preserve the purity and potency of these wholesome ingredients from plant to bottle, offering advanced formulas that safely address all skin concerns without the use of harmful chemicals and preservatives. With the wonders of nature at the heart of Innisfree, we take care to preserve and protect the environment in all that we do”
The Innisfree Name
Innisfree gets its name from the lyrical poem, The Lake of Isle of Innisfree, by William Butler Yeats. “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” expresses the desire to escape typical, urban life in hopes of achieving peace and solitude by becoming one with nature. Innisfree describes Jeju Island as a “unique oasis that offers a sensorial escape from the fast-paced daily life and a rejuvenating moment to nurture healthy skin in perfect harmony with nature.”

Where to Get Innisfree Products
Lluillui carries 17 Innisfree products. Innisfree is one of lluillui’s favorite skincare companies for its brand mission and commitment. At lluillui, you can find the majority of Innisfree's Green Tea line.
Green Tea Skincare Benefits
Healthline states, “The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties in green tea may make it an effective treatment for acne and oily skin. According to research, the polyphenols in green tea, when applied to the skin, help reduce sebum secretion, which can lead to acne.” According to a 2016 review, the EGCG in green tea has shown improvement in treating acne and oily skin.
Green tea is also known for its anti-aging properties. Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Amanda Doyle, recommends incorporating green tea into your skincare routine to protect the skin's overall integrity. "Green tea contains potent anti-aging antioxidants called catechins, specifically epigallocatechin gallate, (EGCG) that scavenge free radicals, which if not removed can damage the skin."
