We all want natural, fresh products for our skincare routines. What’s more fresh than fruit? That’s where OLIVIAUMMA Glass Skin comes in. OLIVIAUMMA is inspired by a globally trending dessert called ‘Tanghulu,’ which is made by dipping fruit into melted sugar, inspiring this mother-daughter duo to create their very own skincare line which would emulate the same glass effect for men and women of all ages across generations. OLIVIAUMMA is produced in Seoul, Korea while the ‘Tanghulu Glass Skin’ series emulates all elements of the Tanghulu experience; starting with the blueberries, strawberries, tangerine, guava, mint, and muscat grapes interwoven as ingredients of the launch collection. OLIVIAUMMA’s bright, creative, and playful packaging makes its consumers feel brighter, happier, and ready to take on proactive skin care choices.

Hye Young Kim founded OLIVIAUMMA, also referred to as Mom in Korean! Hye was born in Seoul, Korea, and throughout her adult life, she has been a citizen of the globe appreciating skin care while traveling. Hye Young Kim, founder of OLIVIAUMMA is a former banker, turned fashion CEO, mother, and now beauty entrepreneur who has resided in various cities, such as Singapore, San Francisco, and now Miami. Hye and her teenage daughter Olivia relocated to South Florida in 2014. It was in 2020 when a friend of her daughter, Olivia asked for insight into Korean Beauty Skincare that changed everything for the mother-daughter duo.

Hye and Olivia, set out on a mission to create a collection of cross-generational skincare that could be used by people of all ages. The aim was to use vegan ingredients and the knowledge of top scientists to create a range of essential skin care products that, while focused on individual concerns, would evoke a colorful and happy skincare journey for all ages. OLIVIAUMMA was born with the idea that “No person too young or old should have to miss out on glass skin effects because of an ingredient profile.”
