Now, selected for the 2020 Startup Ontact
Overseas Expansion Project, introduced Monage.
Monage is a vegan brand that Now launched
in 2017, and it presents the concept of "skin-resembling cosmetics" based on
NMF (natural moisturizing factor), a natural ingredient similar to the
ingredients already in the skin.
CEO Kim Do-hee said, "It was launched
in Korea in 2019 with the slogan "600% moisture as soon as it is applied,"
made with ingredients that are present in the skin and continuously needed by
the skin. Monage started exporting overseas before its launch in Korea, and has
been building a global brand image from the beginning by
distributing/selling/promoting them both in Korea and abroad."
Kim continued, "All of Monage's products
are vegan prescription all-in-one products that consider the environment, and
we will participate in the plastic reduction campaign. Also, it contains 99%
safe and natural ingredients that received Grade 1 from US EWG, so you can use
it with confidence. We used natural essential oil fragrance selected by aroma
therapist instead of chemical fragrances or tar-based chemicals, and we have
excluded allergy-causing nut oils, and citrus oil and buttery ingredients that
can clog pores."
Also, "It can be used for sensitive,
and all ages from newborns to adults all over the body. It has been certified
as irritation-free. Monage has a pH of 5~6.5 which is similar to the skin, so
it does not irritate the eyes, and is hygienic because it is manufactured in
the MFDS CGMP certified facility. It has excellent quality and has been
recognized for its quality in Europe with certification from Russia. It is
being supplied to the military through the Korean Armed Forces Welfare
The staff ended the interview for 2020
Startup Ontact Overseas Expansion by saying, "We are supplying to the military
and exporting to Russia, Europe, and Southeast Asia. We need a buyer who can
help us with the logistics, customs, and export with certification experience."
