Companies create the formula's and manufacture products in different countries. e.g the lab is in France, but it's cheaper to manufacture the product in Poland so it is physically made in Poland.

awe , ok see now that makes sense to me. thank you for sharing. a korean skincare product is the same formula regarding of where it is made. Still it gets rather confusing sometimes. I just thought if its made in a country thats where it comes from. so when i see a brand like Eveline and its a polish skincare brand but the products say made in korea and made in france. Its still the same as if it were made in poland. same product just manufactured in a different place.

Basically, a big cosmetic company has many branches in different countries. For instance, Loreal has 11 manufacturing factories in France, but another 40 more worldwide. The loreal product may be manufactured in one place and sell in another. But, there might be the case whereby some people registered the same company name first in their country rather than the company itself (rarely). The best way to ensure you're getting the authentic product is to buy it in the official stores.

There are so many products like this, just compare it to your clothes. Your clothes might be owned by a company in one country but then are very likely to have been made in another country like China. Its no different in skincare. The brand may be based and owned in one country but they outsource their manufacturing to other countries like Korea. I imagine Korea has more large scale skincare production facilities then other countries around the world.

Just like Apple. Apple products are usually made in China. All devices I’ve bought from the official Apple website were shipped from China.
