Pyunkang Yul. Exotic name with very non-exotic ingredients. Synthetic, any one?

What will you find in Pyunkang Yul Moisture Ampoule? Incidentally, it is not an ampoule, just a drop bottle, but ampoule sounds more “medical”, right?

Water (as plant extract)  Polysorbate 80, Peg-150 Distearate, Polysorbate 20 (surfactants) 1,2-Hexanediol (solvent)  Peg-150 Distearate (thickener), Glyceryl Caprylate (emollient).

What will you find in the plant extract? Besides water (and maybe other solvents, not listed), an alkaloid called berberine and, if you spend money in a lab analysis, some unlisted preservatives.

A rubbish product with a fancy name.  Korea deserves better.
