After living in Asia for several years, Désirée grew to love Korean beauty products. They are not only amazingly effective, but also based on natural ingredients – and of course a lot of them are just super cute!
Back to Europe, even in a city like Zurich, she could not find any of them. Buying online was not better either, as all stores were located in Asia – high shipping cost, import tax, and a long wait for the products.
We wanted a place, where we can find the best Korean beauty products plus complete information about the products and how to apply them.
Knowing we weren't the only ones looking for such a place, we decided to create Niniko. Having years of experience in digital marketing and e-commerce we have the perfect skill set to create a user-friendly platform for you.
Our values build upon a fusion of Korean skin care philosophy and European customer orientation. We cherry-pick the best and most loved products from South Korea and the Far East, combine it with chat and email help and fast shipping for you.
While we were taught to cover blemishes with makeup, Koreans know to cure their skin from deep within for a naturally flawless look with the 10 step routine. The products used are extremely high quality and innovative but nevertheless in adorable packaging. We want to spread the word about this South Korean beauty philosophy, which in itself is influenced by the Japanese Kawaii, the trend for cuteness which is a signature part of Korea's culture. It is this combination of strict standards, appreciation for true quality, ingenuity and cuteness, that drives us and the products we offer to be among the best in the world.At Niniko you can find:
- selected, favorite beauty brands from South Korea,
- with independent product information and reviews
- free delivery & 100 days returns
If you need any help to pick your must-have Korean beauty products, contact us via chat or email – we'd love to help!
To date, Korean cosmetics are not widely available in Europe & the US. Buying them from Asian retailers online often means high shipping cost, import tax and a long wait for the products – and you can never be sure whether they sell the real thing or just a knock off.
Besides trendsetters, a lot of people have the misconception, that Asian cosmetics are just cute and playful, but are not very effective compared to western cosmetics. Never have they been more wrong! Thanks to government investment in R&D, South Korean beauty products are said to be 7 years ahead of the rest of the world in product development. Did you know that BB creams, sheet masks, and the cushion compact all originated in Korea?
Our goal is to make the best Korean beauty brands available in Europe & the US, spread the word about the Korean skin care philosophy and share their best kept beauty secrets with you.
