Whamisa was founded by Ryan Park in 1999.
Passionate about plants and the very advanced Korean tradition of fermentation, he set himself the goal of mastering fermentation technology in order to develop his own active ingredients and offer treatments with a real quality formula.
Taking advantage of all that nature has to offer to the skin, with the aim of preserving the active ingredients for maximum effectiveness, to maintain a harmonious and lasting coexistence between Man and Nature.
Whamisa means Flower + Beauty + 4.
"Wha" means flower because flowers are present in all Whamisa cosmetic care formulas.
"Mi" means beauty because Whamisa offers natural and organic treatments to sublimate women's skin and natural beauty.
"Sa" for the number 4, because 4 trades are at the origin of the creation of the Whamisa brand: chemists, botanists, dermatologists and fermentation specialists. 4 because Whamisa was created with 4 ingredients as a base: seeds, fruits, flowers and roots.
But also because they use 4 natural elements: water, air, sun and earth.
