On any given day in 1991, Young-don Han was the general manager of a famous hotel in South Korea. On one day in particular, however, Young-don began selling a creation of his: a new purifying liquid skincare product, made from boiling Korean medicinal herbs. He innovated further by dipping pieces of soft paper into his product, and on that fateful day Korea’s first functional wet tissue was made.
By 2001, Young-don Han’s Hanul Co., Ltd. was celebrating its ten-year anniversary. Producing more and more wet tissues by the hour, Hanul made further improvements in the world of wet tissues, making them with softer fibers and cloths, and even developed the country’s first tissue intended for wiping the inside of a baby’s mouth.
After twenty years in the wet tissue industry, Hanul knows a thing or two about the products it creates. Where some may be satisfied with being the leading manufacturer of wet tissues in the world, those at Hanul strove even further. The goal at Hanul isn’t to make wet tissues; it’s to make the best wet tissues. Over the years Hanul’s products have improved and developed variations, but the same is true then as it was twenty years ago: Hanul helps keep your home clean, sanitized, and most important of all, safe.
Year 2021, Hanul's corporate philosophy was 'Leap to global company and love as one company’.
Hanul, a company with mostly local business transaction, has become a global company with exports accounting for half of its sales.
Separated factories gathered on a spacious sunny site in Seonyu Industrial Complex in Paju.
Furthermore, the best adventurers of Hanul joined forces to formed a wonderful R&D center in Eoulmadang-ro, Hongdae and began exploring.
The Seonyu factory in Paju has become a landmark with state-of-art rather called campus and the R&D center in Hongdae is also very magnificent.
From now on, we are filling it with love.
