Join us as we unravel the secrets and delve into the core policies that have earned AXIS-Y the unwavering trust and attention of skincare enthusiasts worldwide.
Since its inception in 2019, AXIS-Y has established itself as a pioneering skincare brand, providing solutions inspired by nature and traditional Korean beauty practices. Their unique approach centred around self-care and community-focused product production, positioned them as a standout in the competitive skincare market, particularly during the global challenges of the 2020 pandemic. The brand's proactive stance in addressing emerging concerns such as "maskne" resonated with individuals who had not previously encountered skincare issues. As worldwide morale declined amidst travel and social restrictions, AXIS-Y's unwavering commitment to self-care became even more pertinent, solidifying its position as a standout player in the saturated skincare market.
What Makes AXIS-Y Unique?
AXIS-Y is a cruelty-free brand that does not contain any artificial colours, or added fragrances, and is mostly vegan-friendly, though the real focus is on creating climate-friendly skincare and is the first brand to hone in on how climate affects the user's skin. Climate-friendly skincare is created by considering where customers live and using ingredients which will combine well with their specific environment.
This is important not only for the sake of climate itself but also as travelling becomes more common, customers need more personalised and unique products to fit different skin concerns that come with constantly changing climates.
Cruelty-Free & Veg-Advocate
Axis-Y has a firm commitment to never test on animals at any stage of our formulation process, aligning with those advocating for a better future for animals and the planet. Striving towards the ultimate goal of obtaining vegan certification for all products, the brand has developed a variety of products already certified vegan by the Korean Vegan Association. Axis-Y is actively working to expand its vegan selection.
Natural and Organic Ingredients
AXIS-Y stands out by incorporating organic and natural ingredients while formulating products free from artificial fragrances, parabens, and mineral oils. Through meticulous clinical testing, the brand ensures that its products are both suitable and effective for all skin types.
Artichoke extract is a potent skincare ingredient celebrated for its antioxidants, which combat free radicals and environmental stressors, preventing premature ageing. Rich in vitamins and minerals, it promotes skin hydration, resulting in a refreshed and revitalised appearance.
Mugwort is a skincare gem renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in soothing and calming sensitive skin. Packed with antioxidants, this botanical powerhouse helps protect the skin from environmental damage, while its natural antibacterial qualities contribute to clearer, balanced skin.

AXIS-Y doesn't adhere to specific beauty standards or principles; instead, it fosters an inclusive and free-spirited community that provides a safe space and adds positivity to individuals. The brand consistently listens to and incorporates feedback from its trusted community to enhance and tailor products to better suit their needs.
