Women’s Rights

International law requires that women and girls must be equal with men and boys. This means full equality in:

  • The right to participate in international, national and local politics and society.
  • The right to education, work, and access to the economy.
  • The right to health, including sexual and reproductive health.
  • The right to life, and not to be subjected to violence, especially rape and domestic violence.
  • The right to equality in their relationships among families, communities, and religions

This legal duty to ensure gender equality is obligatory on all States in the world.

Inhyunjin Eye Cream, the power behind it…

So what makes this eye cream tick?

Inhyunjin eye cream combines the most advanced technologies with time-tested ingredients derived from natural Asian herbs – revealing radiant, ageless skin. Powered by ancient herbal science, this anti-aging formula naturally delivers the essential facets of skin renewal – exfoliation, hydration, regeneration and radiance – helping skin restore balance and reverse the signs of aging. It is simply amazing…here are some areas of concern it addresses!

  • Signs of aging in the delicate eye area
  • Revitalizes and helps firm skin around the eye area
  • Provides moisture and works to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
  • Leaves eye area soft, smooth, and refreshed

What is unique about this eye cream and makes it so special is this 3 Part Formulation:

  1. Fermented Yurisu – Patented innovation involving extraction and fermentation of key herbal ingredients
  2. Gu-jeung- po-dan’ Method – Exclusive to Inhyunjin, six beneficial ingredients are steamed and dried nine time in 50 days to boost absorption rate in skin…wowza!!
  3. Matagenin – Patented technology avoids damage to the efficacy of the ingredients and maintains integrity of formula



Sunflower Seed Oil –  When applied to skin, sunflower seed oil can be effective against acne, eczema, scarring, redness and irritation? It’s an incredible hydrating agent. Sunflower oil helps retain moisture; it’s high in Vitamin E, A, C and D as well.


Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract – is valued for the Paeoniflorin active, which has an antioxidant effect similar to Vitamin E. It also stimulates circulation with overall skin beautifying properties.The botanical prevents lipid peroxidation in the epidermal cells for healthy skin. Its extract has been used medicinally for centuries to boost microcirculation, treat inflammation and relieve pain.


Peach Kernel Extract – This moisturizing oil is great at nourishing the skin without leaving a greasy feel.   It is rich in Vitamin E, making it a popular choice for mature skin formulations.

Coconut And Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil – Coconut oil melts on the skin as soon as you apply it, without leaving any kind of residues. It easily seeps into the skin pores, moisturizing deeply and thoroughly. Coconut oil can preserve the smoothness of the face by keeping it wrinkle-free. It is a structural protein in the inner layers of skin, it’s what keeps the skin elastic and smooth. The triglycerides in the oil attract protein molecules, ensuring timely repair of the collagen layer.


Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract –

Do you want to keep your skin firm and young-looking? Chinese researchers treated human skin cells with astragalus root. The skin cells produced more hyaluronic acid.

That’s important because without hyaluronic acid, your body can’t make collagen. No collagen means tired, sagging, wrinkled skin. It also protects against the breakdown of elastin. That’s a protein that keeps your skin flexible. In an 8-week clinical trial, researchers showed that applying an astragalus face cream improved texture, elasticity and skin tone.
