Upon establishing 107, Seyong and Chloe, dedicated themselves to researching Hanega’s vinegar and its potential to be formulated into skincare products. Vinegar’s health benefits as a superfood had been well-documented in the general public, with some research even garnering Nobel Prizes – but they knew Hanega’s vinegar was different. Typical vinegar can be easily made with any type of alcohol or cider and can be produced in as little as 21 days. Hanega’s vinegar was all-natural and hand-made, with three types of rice and 20 oriental herbs, and it was aged and fermented for many years. Seyong and Chloe discovered that Hanega’s vinegar produced an extraordinary microbiome (or culture of bacteria) that generated comparably greater levels of naturally-formed postbiotics (or molecular byproducts) beneficial to skincare, including: seven essential amino acids that improve hydration and neutralize damage to skin; acetic acids that help refine skin pores; alpha-hydroxy acids that exfoliate skin and help collagen production; and the antioxidant vitamin C. It turned out that Hanega’s vinegar was indeed a superfood, for the skin.
