AmorePacific Corporation is a South Korean beauty and cosmetics conglomerate, operating 33 health, beauty, and personal care brands including Etude House, innisfree, Laneige, Lolita Lempicka, and Annick Goutal. Founded in 1945, it is the world's 14th largest cosmetics company.
The company originated in the 1940s, when Yun Dok-jeong began selling camellia oils as a hair treatment in the village of Kaesong. Her second son, Suh Sung-whan, took over the business in 1945, naming it "태평양 (taepyeong-yang, lit. Pacific Ocean)".
Suh handed the company over to his second son Suh Kyung-bae in 1997; its success has made him the second-richest man in Korea as of 2016.
