COSRX Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion : Underrated benefits of Birch Sap


Few weeks ago, I introduced you the benefits of donkey milk through my PongDang Cream review. Today, let’s talk about something just as natural as donkey milk, but so underrated : Birch Sap !

The Korean cosmetics brand COSRX puts this ingredient under the spotlights is its very new product Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion :

Birch Sap benefits

Birch sap is mostly consumed orally thank to its boosting, remineralizing and anti-oxidant effects. This is a very good cure for kidney and liver, but also for skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis.
As for the skin, birch sap is known for its anti-oxidant and anti-aging benefits. It also stimulates cell renewal and protects the skin from stress, inflammation, UV rays, pollution, etc.
In short, a gem of nature that you probably did not suspect (yet) the potential!


La COSRX Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion (with Birch Sap) – bon okay on a clairement atteint la limite des titres à rallonge là– est une lotion qui se veut “universelle”, pour toutes les peaux et tous les besoins ! Elle dispense l’hydratation nécéssaire aux peaux sèches, normales, mixtes, grasses et sensibles, et s’attaque aussi à la protection et la reconstruction de l’épiderme pour une peau lisse et éclatante.

TheCOSRX Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion (with Birch Sap) –okay this is clearly too long– tends to be an universal lotion, for all skin types and needs! It provides hydratation for dry, normal, combination, oily and sensitive skins, and also helps the protection and reconstruction of skin for a smooth and glowing skin.

Ingredients list of CosRX Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion (with Birch Sap)
Betula Platyphylla Japonica Juice, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Betaine, Cetearyl Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/, Sodium Acryloyldimethyl, Taurate Copolymer, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Lactate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil

  • The most present ingredient which goes by the name of Betula Platyphylla Japonica Juice, simply means birch sap. It represens not les than 70% of the composition, not bad !
  • Let’s note the Allantoin (healing and soothing), lemon peel oil (anti bacterial) and tea tree (anti oxidant).

This is, as usual, a very good composition from COSRX !


If you already knew the COSRX products, you won’t be disoriented by the minimalist packaging of this lotion.
The product texture is quite milky, my skin likes to absorb it. Its fragrance is pretty strong though… It smells like “tree”, I guess it is a good thing, right? This is not the most pampering fragrance I’ve been smelling these days, but it absolutely don’t bother me.


When I became aware of all birch sap benefits (also helps my general culture, I can tell!), I immediately suggested to my dad to test it out on his psoriasis. After the first application on his arm, it already itched a lot less! Stay tuned, but for my not-so-sensitive skin, it’s a jewel : This is a perfect moisturizing, soothing and purifying lotion.
