Kolmar Korea, the first cosmetic company to win the ‘Patent Technology Award’… ‘Triple Crown’ following NEP certification and Jang Young-sil Award


Kolmar Korea’s cosmetic technology patent was the first in the industry to be awarded the ‘Sejong the Great Award’. Following the NEP (New Excellent Product) certification that proves technological prowess and the Jang Yeong-sil Award, it has achieved the ‘triple crown’ with the King Sejong Award.

Kolmar Korea announced on the 17th that it had won the King Sejong Award, the grand prize for patent technology, for its ‘peptide design technology specific to binding to each skin cell receptor’. The Patent Technology Award is an award that discovers domestic patents that have contributed to the development of innovative new technologies and industries under the auspices of the Korean Intellectual Property Office. It is evaluated by reflecting technology (creativity, sophistication), appropriateness of the scope of rights, and industrial applicability (ripple effect, productivity, utility, marketability). This award was established in 1992.

The technology that led to this award is said to be a technology that allows the effective skin ingredients (barrier strengthening, whitening, and regeneration) to be accurately absorbed by finding damaged target cells. The skin whitening effective ingredient is a concept that targets and delivers only damaged cells that need a whitening effect. It can be seen as a technology that maximizes the skin improvement effect by preventing the wrong delivery of effective ingredients and increasing the speed.

According to Kolmar Korea, this technology was completed based on the drug delivery system used in pharmaceuticals. He explained that the main ingredient when taking medicines is similar to a targeted therapy, which targets and attacks specific cells. Atomy’s ‘Absolute Selective Skin Care’ to which this technology is applied has surpassed 450 billion won in cumulative sales four years after its launch. It is currently being exported to 16 overseas countries and is being recognized in the global market. At the ’47th National Quality Management Contest’ hosted by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, it is said to have received the Presidential Citation for National Quality Innovation Award and the Gold and Bronze awards at the National Quality Circle Contest. The National Quality Innovation Award is awarded to a company that has achieved outstanding results in quality management innovation activities such as quality improvement, cost reduction, and productivity improvement in the industrial field. He said that the six-stage quality management system, acquisition of the first cosmetics manufacturing and quality control standards (CGMP) in Korea, and the acquisition of international cosmetic manufacturing and quality control standards (ISO22716) were highly evaluated at this award.

Ahn Byung-joon, CEO of Kolmar Korea, said, “The result of faithfulness to basic technology and quality in a difficult business environment due to COVID-19 has led to this award. We will contribute to the development of the domestic industry,” he said.
