1 Why Haru Haru
1.1 Official and legal products
We at Haru Haru Beauty are in direct contact with all of the Korean brands that we have taken into our selection. As a premium reseller, all of our products originate directly from the official brand or distributor's factories or warehouses.
The products we offer have safely passed laboratory tests in the European Union and are subsequently registered and labeled by us or a (different) RP in the European Union according to article (EC) N ° 1223/2009 of the European Union.
If you choose Haru Haru Beauty, you choose a safe market within the European Union. The EU has strict requirements and controls on products and packaging that are safe for us, which have been produced in a safe environment, and in addition, the products are free of animal testings.
There are nowadays many "k-beauty" stores in Europe that sell products without meeting these requirements. This means that the products have not been tested in Europe and there is also a chance that products may have been tested on animals. So please be aware of this when making your purchase!
1.2 What are the selection criteria for Haru Haru?
Before a product enters our store, it has already gone through a long way of selection process.
In addition to the fact that the product has passed Korean standards (such as animal testing-free, responsible production process at the manufacturer), it has also had to take various tests in Europe such as stability (after transport, etc.)
In addition, we test the products for a certain period of time in the Netherlands under different conditions and on our test panel with different skin types and problems. (The test panel can vary per product)
Points where we focus our attention include:
Ratio between active ingredients and texture / scent regulators.
Easy to use
Is it easy to use and can it be used together with other products without having to be a scientist.
Is the price / quality ratio correct? Is there a better product available in the same price range?
Light textures that feel fine on the skin and does not aggravate and has no or few odors that linger.
1.3 Original products fresh from S-Korea
All of our Korean Beauty products at Haru Haru are imported directly from South Korea. As a premium reseller we can guarantee the authenticity, quality and life span of products because we are in direct contact with all of the brands or official distributors in South Korea.
Upon arrival in the Netherlands, the products often are between 3 ~ 6 months fresh from the factory.
1.4 Wide range of products
Haru Haru carefully selects each of the products suitable for different steps in the skincare routine. We also pay close attention to our customers' different skin types, problems and lifestyles so that we can offer only the best.
Each product undergoes a 3 months "probation" period. This probation time is important to us so that we can listen closely to our customers' feedback. After the 3 months it will be a stay or a nay.
