We set out to create a single serum that restores the vitality and resilience of youthful skin, without damaging active ingredients or the hassle and confusion of multiple steps. We found the answer in the rain. Specifically, in the antioxidant-rich astaxanthin found in rainwater microalgae, the key ingredient in AZN Labs’s flagship serum.


Camellia Japonica Flower Extract

Camellia japonica flower extract, also known as tsubaki, is an anti-aging powerhouse. Rich in flavonoids and polyphenols, camellia extract is a potent antioxidant, especially powerful against pollutant-induced stress. This ability to neutralize a variety of skin-damaging free radicals helps fight the causes of wrinkles and dark spots. Camellia extract also helps boost collagen production, making it an excellent anti-aging ingredient.


Rhizophora Mangle Callus Culture Extract

Rhizophora Mangle is extracted from the bark of the red mangrove plant and possesses antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and more potent antioxidant activity than vitamin C. It helps boost collagen synthesis and inhibits inflammation, making it a powerful anti-aging ingredient for sagging, stressed skin.



Also known as CoQ10, ubiquinone is present in all living cells of the body, where it supports cellular energy production and acts as an important antioxidant. However, our production of ubiquinone decreases significantly after age 20. When applied topically, ubiquinone absorbs well into the skin and helps replenish our decreased supply. We’ve boosted the Afterglow Ampoule with this important antioxidant to help prevent and minimize fine lines and wrinkles.


Ferulic Acid

Ferulic acid is an antioxidant found in the cell walls of plants that helps to slow the aging process by fighting free radical damage and protecting the skin from harm so that it can naturally regenerate. Ferulic acid also works well with other antioxidants and, in fact, enhances the efficacy of the astaxanthin included in the Afterglow Ampoule for a more youthful and vibrant appearance.



Arbutin is extracted from the bearberry plant and is commonly used as a natural alternative to hydroquinone. Arbutin works by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase, which is necessary for the formation of dark spots. Continued use of the Afterglow Ampoule will help fade dark spots, prevent hyperpigmentation, and brighten overall skin tone.

This is also the perfect product to help prevent future premature aging and protection against harmful radicals and pollutants while achieving a dewy warm glow.

  2. Apply your favorite toner
  3. Apply a drop of the Afterglow Ampoule
  4. Apply your favorite moisturizer


After the first use, skin looks and feels softer, more supple, and far more nourished, with a dewy luster. Within one week, that signature vibrant rosy glow returns to cheeks, lighting up your complexion from within. Over time, collagen production increases, smoothing away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dark spots fade and sensitivity decreases, leading to more even skin tone. Meanwhile, powerful antioxidants defend against further UV and free radical damage, allowing skin to repair itself and regain its youth.

Beautytap is Making Power Moves: Unveiling Afterglow Ampoule by AZN Labs, First Product Line Providing a Miracle Blend of J + K-Beauty

With its innovative formulation to stabilize astaxanthin, traditionally used in Japanese beauty products for its anti-aging properties and featuring 6,000 times more antioxidant power than Vitamin C, Afterglow Ampoule provides INSTANT skin smoothing results, and more, in a single serum

LOS ANGELES – February 4, 2019 – Beautytap, the premier destination for Korean beauty education, advice, content, community, and premium luxury beauty products, will unveil Afterglow Ampoule, the first release from its luxury product line: AZN Labs. The “Seoul” of this line was designed with three core concepts in mind - ingredients, science, and effectiveness. Afterglow Ampoule, the first luxury product released from the line, represents the perfect combination of J-Beauty & K-Beauty, thanks to the use of traditional floral ingredients found in the best K-beauty products, and the careful use of Astaxanthin (AX), a vibrant red keto-carotenoid naturally created in rainwater microalgae and containing 6,000 times the potency of Vitamin C, which was introduced to the cosmetics industry in Japan.

“The release of AZN Labs’ Afterglow Ampoule is special to us because it reflects the direct needs and requests of our community and, through the creation of this product, we’ve closed a huge gap in the marketplace,” said CEO and Founder at Beautytap, James Sun. “Before the release of our ampoule, people wanted a product that reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gives an instant glow through a single serum that combines the best ingredients from Asia. The Afterglow Ampoule IS that product. It plumps up the skin to achieve immediate results, leaving one with a healthy glow while repairing fine lines and wrinkles, instantly. We can’t wait for everyone to try it and see the results for themselves.”

Afterglow Ampoule, a soon-to-be undisputed serum for anyone suffering from age-related dryness, dark spots, dullness, and loss of firmness and elasticity, was created and formulated in Korea. However, the true beauty of this new line has more than just K-Beauty at its core! The Company was determined to use J-beauty miracle ingredient, astaxanthin, known for being notoriously difficult to work with in cosmetic formulations and naturally unstable, degrading quickly in light and heat and in response to oxygen exposure, in its premier product.

“Beautytap was up for the challenge of combining the best of the best ingredients from Asia into one miracle blend and, because of its powerful and proven anti-aging effects, AX was a must-have. It took the work of dedicated scientists in Japan as well as our master formulators in Korea to perfect our light- and heat-stable formula to create the first product introduced by AZN Labs. Users will find consistent results from beginning to end, because our ampoule delivers the full benefits of a preventative and reparative anti-aging skincare routine, without harsh ingredients or the hassle and confusion of multiple steps to address multiple problems,” continued Sun.

While AZN Labs is Beautytap’s first product line, the company plans to continue creating products using effective ingredients and cutting-edge technology as their main goal has always been to help customers tap into their inner beauty. For now, Afterglow Ampoule is THE go-to for those who love both J-beauty and K-beauty, and for those who crave a product that leaves them feeling immediately rejuvenated and pampered, while nurturing and healing their skin, contributing to an effortless glow.

Limited supplies of Afterglow Ampoule will be available for pre-order today, with online purchases beginning February 21st.
