This particular face mask is absolutely luxurious. It is composed of Sakekasu, a by-product of the traditional Sake fermentation processes.
While at a Japanese sake brewery, a scientist noticed that the hands of the workers looked beautiful and young and investigated further! Sakekasu is rich in Kojic acid, Vitamin D, Vitamin B1 & a variety of other elements that inhibit the performance of melanin, the main culprit of sunspots, age spots & freckles.The skin brightening effect of kojic acid was discovered purely by chance!
Sake and Sakekasu have an unbelievable moisturizing capability, as opposed to other alcoholic beverages. A sakekasu bath has incredible moisturizing & heat-retention effects.
Sake has been used as an excellent skin toner for centuries in Japan. It contains plenty of saccharides & amino acids that are used as cosmetic materials.
Also, this all natural face mask can be imbibed! Drinking Sakekasu as a hot drink : mix 2 teaspoons of Sakekasu w/hot water, add a small slice of ginger & honey or maple syrup. May prevent allergies from pollen, food & house dust mites.
Sake and Sakekasu contain antioxidants called Ferulic acids, a powerful UV light absorber, preventing skin aging.
Toxins in the body appear through the skin because the skin is an excretory organ. Improving one’s dietary habits can naturally treat skin roughness, acne, and skin conditions that are not easily cured through external treatment. Sakekasu contains dietary fibers that can help strengthen the digestive system.
Troublesome skin conditions become increasingly easy to treat with each cell-division cycle of the skin, due to the natural capabilities of vitamin B in increasing skin cell metabolism. Sakekasu holds a high nutritive value rivaling any superfood.
