We’re celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander Month by highlighting and empowering the beauty and culture of being a part of the AAPI community!
We at FaceTory are proud members of the AAPI community! Did you know that we are a Korean-American owned brand that was founded in 2016? We first started off as a sheet mask subscription service that provided high quality sheet masks from all over Korea! In 2018, we began to expand by creating our own skincare line that has been adored and loved by all of you! Jump to 2022, we launched our Urban Calm collection and have been growing ever since!
To honor AAPI month, we encourage all of you to go out and try a taste of some delicious Asian cuisine! Asian culture is so diverse, so you get a wide variety of spices, flavors, and umami! One of our personally recommended favorites is Buko Pandan which is a Filipino cold dessert made with jelly cubes, coconut and sweet cream 😋. The bright green color, the immense sweetness and the refreshing feeling after eating, make this dessert a fantastic summer-time dish!
And if you’re looking to support other aspects of the AAPI community, take a look at shopping and purchasing from Asian skincare brands! Whether it’s Korean skincare or Indian skincare, the industry is booming with immense diversity! Each brand is made with different ingredients and formulation and that’s what makes these ethnically owned brands one of a kind. Some products we want to recommend to you are our refreshing Artemisia mask that contains Mugwort, and our Light My Night Sheet mask that contains Yuja. Both are very popular korean skincare ingredients that you won’t find in the US!
One of the biggest ways you can help support the AAPI community is by amplifying the community's voices! You can do this by sharing news articles, videos, TikToks, and more that cover Asian topics! By sharing and listening to these voices, you’re supporting, learning, and connecting with a variety of amazing cultures!
