Initially LDF BUY will sell vegan cosmetic products from Grown Alchemist and Hunter Lab, with Kora Organics to follow later this month. All products have been sourced by Lotte Duty Free Australia.

Grown Alchemist is a natural skincare brand known for its use of technology and naturally-derived ingredients. The brand uses glass and plastic packaging that does not harm the environment. Its products were recently certified cruelty-free by PETA, the world’s leading animal rights organisation.

HunterLab is an organic brand that provides an alternative to those which use synthetic formulas that can cause skin sensitivities. The brand currently operates 200 premium online and offline stores in Australia, New Zealand and China. All HunterLab’s cosmetic containers are FSC (International Forest Management Council) certified.

Kora Organics creates products made by combining organic ingredients rich in essential fatty acids such as Noni extract, Kahai oil, caviar lime, and kakadu plum with vitamins A, C and E. The products are also certified cruelty-free by PETA.

The vegan cosmetics products sold are not duty free, so they can be purchased online through LDF BUY without South Korean customers having to leave the country.
