Hey there— we’re Cardon.
And you’re finally done searching for the one brand that will actually solve your skin and hair concerns. It’s nice to meet you.
Our lineup is intentionally streamlined, as our multifunctional products each pack a punch. Whether you’re looking to treat dark circles, soothe shaving irritation, prevent hair loss, or all of the above—our personal care solutions are as good at multitasking as your boss thinks you are.
Cardon’s products are easy to use, made of non-toxic, premium ingredients, and are backed by Korean innovation and science. In other words, we’re re-imagining the future of men’s personal care. Want in?
It Began By Asking Men About Protection
SPF protection, that is. While in business school, our founders ran a focus group out of their apartment with a handful of their male classmates. The topic: skincare. When given the chance (and some pizza and beer), the guys were quick to open up about the topic. Narae and Jacqueline were inspired by what they heard and hit the ground running.
Founder Fact: Narae’s decade of experience working in the Korean skincare world paired with Jacqueline’s expertise in the e-commerce startup space perfectly positioned the pair to create this performance-driven brand that the market was missing.
First in Line: SPF
The dynamic duo saw an opportunity to change the outdated social norms around masculinity and self-care. But first, they had to get the guys wearing sunscreen on a daily basis—(not so) arguably the most important step in anyone’s skincare routine. Our award-winning Daily SPF + Moisturizer was first up on the docket, followed by a full line of quality products that all men can feel confident using.
Join The Club
You’ve been left out of the conversation, and we’re inviting you in. Just because you may not be comparing moisturizers in the locker room, doesn’t mean you’re not interested in feeling good in your own skin. That’s where Cardon comes in.
While Cardon’s line is suitable for all skin types, our formulations are specifically designed with men’s skin and hair care concerns top-of-mind. With the power of Korean innovation, we’re here to help you navigate your personal care journey with top-shelf products—without top-shelf prices.
We Do The Work, So You Don’t Have To
Cardon is your one-stop-shop for every step in your personal care routine, from showering to shaving and beyond. You’ve got better stuff to do than research ingredient lists or apply dozens of products every morning.
We’re developing an efficient lineup of self-care products that all men can feel confident using so you can put your best face forward every day.
“Current skincare options for men in America are 10 years behind than what’s available in Korea. Korean skincare is renowned for its high-quality ingredients, clean formulas, and prices that don’t break the bank.
At Cardon, we are bridging that gap to give men everywhere first-rate personal care products that are easy-to-use and actually work.”
-Narae Chung, Cardon CEO & Co-Founder
What’s In A Name?
BTW, Cardon (kärˌdän) is named after a tall cactus native to Mexico—prickly on the outside, ultra-skin-soothing in many of our products. Likewise, we aim to act as an oasis in the desert that is men’s skincare and self-care.
How it works
We listened to your concerns, and we’ve got solutions. Every Cardon product is made to solve top concerns we heard directly from you—think: acne, hair loss, and beyond.
Simple + Efficient
We keep it simple. From choosing your Cardon lineup here on our site to applying our products in your daily routine, we make every step efficient and easy.
Innovative Korean R+D
We think you deserve the best, so each ingredient selected and product produced is rooted in Korean skincare science (which is decades ahead of the rest of the world). And before they hit our shelves, each product is obsessively tested until we get it just right.
Quality, Non-Toxic Ingredients
We only use the highest quality ingredients that deliver the highest quality results. Our ingredient list is held to stringent European Union regulations, so you have peace of mind knowing our products are both safe and effective.
Accessible Price Point
