Helping dryness & pigmentation
A new product from Japan that moisturises and nourishes the skin and helps with pigmentation.
The Japanese have come up with a unique product that helps skin problems including dryness and pigmentation. Ichirô Yamamoto was living with his mother in her 70s and owns a horse range. Mrs Yamamoto suffered from very dry, tight and pigmented skin due to the cold and dry weather and often, her skin would crack during the harsh winter.
In the recent years, the Japanese have taken a liking for Basashi (horse sashimi). Mrs Yamamoto would cut the horsemeat into smaller portions and sell them to the sashimi bar restaurants. She realised in doing so that the skin on her fingers, palm and hands had improved tremendously and they no longer had the painful itchiness. She discovered that the natural horse oil flowing out had moisturised and nourished her hands. Ichirô then teamed up with a dermatologist to come up with a viable product (which besides horse oil has a natural patented active ingredient to target skin problems like dryness and pigmentation) called Gokujo Bahyu (above, left), which is now available in Singapore. This cream is not meant for the hair or to be taken orally.
The premium horse oil in the product contains oleic acid, linoleic acid and palmitic acid, which are similar to human serum. It penetrates into human skin, and moisturises, nourishes and revitalises the skin. It also promotes skin metabolism to slow down ageing. Formulated with arbutin and Vitamin C, it effectively purifies and clarifies the skin. It is not advisable to use when there is open wound. The product has already been featured in the Chinese newspapers.
