The History of Amarte Skin Care

East Meets West

Amarte began in Korea in 1994 as a skin care initiative within a prestige dermatology clinic. One of the clinic members was particularly interested in skin care formulations for unmet clinical needs and developed a savant-level ability to produce incredibly different skin care products to address clinically relevant skin and overall aesthetic concerns. Her formulations were met with an incredibly positive response and her efforts led to an increasingly sophisticated and expansive product line.   Feedback from clinic patients and the dermatology community at large was resoundingly positive.

This remarkable success ultimately gave rise to the founding of Amarte Co., Ltd., Korea in 2001. By 2004, Amarte had become well established as a supplier of high end skin care products throughout East Asia.

In 2006, Amarte entered an exclusive private label skin care contract with a major pharmaceutical company in Hong Kong, and the signature product quickly became Hong Kong’s top selling prestige skin care product. In this same year, Amarte partnered with the Korean Bio Regional Innovation Center to further advance and innovate with bio-organic ingredients. It was also in 2006 that these incredible formulas were discovered by American dermatologist and DermStore.com founder, Dr. Craig Kraffert. He recognized the objectively superior properties of Amarte products and decided to form an international corporate partnership to further improve these extraordinarily efficacious Korean formulations and customize them for introduction into the American luxury skin care market.

Today, Amarte is rapidly becoming known throughout the world.  Sales volumes are escalating, reflecting a high level of market satisfaction with the Amarte product offering. Amarte's spa treatment line has also recently reached America with the signature SILKTOX™ mask leading the way.  In a very short time, Amarte has become a United States media favorite, with awards and features in Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Allure, People StyleWatch, NewBeauty, American Spa, InStyle and many others. Amarte continues to bring new skin care innovation to Eastern and Western consumers each year, with advanced technology and formulation techniques years ahead of U.S. technology.
