Traditional Japanese Beauty Secrets
The Japanese, well known for their flawless skin, have always used natural botanicals and minerals from the earth for their skin care. Traditionally, ancient Japanese beauties would gently exfoliate their skin using grains such as adzuki beans, rice bran, mineral rich clays, nutrient rich powdered sea vegetables, and powdered herbs. They then would moisturize using botanical oils such as native tsubaki (camellia), rose hips or jojoba oil. To nourish their skin they used herbal teas, extracts and nutritive intensive oils.

Ancient Mask Treatment
To create an ancient Japanese mask treatment, using our traditional facial scrubs, you can add a small amount of jojoba, rose hips or tsubaki oil and enough water to make a thick paste - massage gently into the skin in a circular motion. Allow it to dry for 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
