Wishcompany finished off the month of April on a happy note! We had some fantastic visitors all the way from Sweden.
Our partners along with the winners of their sweepstakes came to visit the headquarters for Klairs and By Wishtrend. We had an all-day event filled with our buyers from Sweden to learn more about our brand, how our products are made, and to (of course, can’t skip out) experience the Seoul city culture!
11:00AM – The day started off with visitors from Sweden visiting the office and was off to a presentation about Klairs & By Wishtrend which then ended with a Q&A session.
The Sweden team that visited Seoul composed of two Instagram winners from the competition Glow ID held, Nathalie and Hannah, their ambassador Olga Röonberg, the manager of Skincity Sophia Mellström, photographer Patricia Röonberg, the Beauty Editor of the Magazine “Damernas Varld” Maria Ahlgren, and the CEO of GLOWID Cecilia Ortmark Soder.
During the presentation, We shared the story behind Klairs and By Wishtrend as well as their products, what we are currently doing for the brands, and what our next plan is.
12:00pm – After the presentation, the team was presented a classic Korean lunch box containing Bulgogi and salad.
This was a time for everyone to taste some of the Korean culture through food. They were served in a black fancy lunch box filled with many vegetable side dishes, bulgogi and rice. It was also a time for the visitors to get to know some of the staff at Klairs while enjoying their food.
1:00pm – It was time to visit the GDK Factory! Wishcompany wanted the buyers to have a chance at exploring and understanding how some of our products our made. The recently launched sheet masks were created at this factory. It was a chance for them to not only hear about it but see how it was created in person.
2:00pm – The team arrived at the factory. It started off with the company introduction and then followed with a factory tour.
GDK warmly welcomed the team with beautiful banner outside of the company. Soon they were led to a meeting room where they received an introduction of GDK, who creates many brands skincare products. They are specialized in creating sheet mask, and in fact, they have made the latest Klairs sheet masks, and By Wishtrend’s Hours Long Moisturizing sheet mask!
3-4:00pm – Once they came inside, they were able to see all the products that are created and developed by GDK. Afterwards, the team wore a cap, mask, and gown for sanitary purposes before going inside the factory to witness how the products are developed from the initial stages to the finalized products. The first stage of the process was gathering all the ingredients in a big bucket-like machine. Then the ingredients are mixed well. After mixing, the contents go in for a test and are sanitized. They also go through temperature testing and for the sheet masks, they check how flexible and durable the material of the sheet masks are. The team were able to witness on of of the most exciting stages of the product production where the team went inside wearing gowns to see the machines putting the formulated sheet mask into it’s package and getting sealed, ready to be used by a customer!
Overall, everyone had a great time learning a lot about the brands, and the process of how everything was created. Living in one of the most fastest growing city with constantly changing trends, it’s inevitable that our company does the best to keep pace and to constantly innovate products that are of highest quality and most effective for all skin types. We are excited to continue to expand our brands and products so that it becomes available all around the world! Thanks for visiting us in Seoul, Glow ID!
