The beauty of a simple
egg is in its balance of
nutrition and design
With this in mind, we hatched SUPEREGG, a vegan egg that powers your skin’s well-being. Formulated to match an egg's nutritional value through 100% vegan ingredients, our plant-based egg beauty rituals restore and balance your skin to a smooth radiant complexion.
Clean and cruelty-free, SUPEREGG formulas are made with you and our planet in mind.
Eggs have played a storied role in Asian beauty practices since the first millennium. In 600 B.C. China, Zhang Lihua, a concubine recognized for her legendary beauty, was said to have whipped up a facial cream composed of egg white and powered vermilion. And during the last century of the Korean Joseon Dynasty, a guidebook for women called Gyuhap chongseo recorded a beauty regime of mixing eggs in liquor to be applied on the face for glossy jade-like skin.
Similar beauty rituals using eggs continue to be practiced widely throughout generations across largely East Asia, from grandparents to children whose parents carefully brushed yolk onto their faces to transfer its nutritive powers. The process took time and patience to apply, as each component — the egg white, yolk, and eggshell — contains unique essential vitamins, minerals, and proteins beneficial for replenishing elasticity and deep hydration.
At SUPEREGG, we are reimagining its potency. Our formulas consist of the advanced vegan equivalent or higher within each egg property to align with our credo of clean skincare.

AN EGG'S BALANCE
Balance is the core of SUPEREGG, and it is our key to naturally beautiful skin. Smooth egg-like balanced skin starts from within. A harmony of nutrition and design, each component of an egg — the egg yolk, white, and eggshell — is a graceful expression of balance.
The word "SUPEREGG" stems from a special shape popularized by Danish Poet and Scientist Piet Hein (1905–1996) to describe a self-balancing oval-like volume that rotates around a curve to create a superellipse, a unique symmetrical ellipse.
In geometry, a superegg is a solid of revolution obtained by rotating an elongated superellipse with exponent greater than 2 around its longest axis. It is a special case of superellipsoid.
