Rice has always been known for its valuable nutritious properties, however more uncommon are its benefits in the beauty world. The oil which is extracted straight from the bran is very rich in oryzanol and is proven to be one of the best anti-oxidants for skin protection.
The story is inspired by the Geisha girls who for centuries used the rice water on their skin to remove the thick layered make up they had to wear to cleanse and improve their complexion whilst retaining the moisture thus keeping their skin smoother, softer and more youthful. Even workmen in the Sake Factories (Japan’s national rice based drink) are renowned for having the smoothest, softest hands.
The benefits of rice bran oil on the skin is due to its levels of tocopherol (vitamin E) and oryzanol which helps reduce blemishes whilst the emollient and anti-oxidant properties restore a youthful and healthy glow to the face. Latest research highlights the fact that due to its high nourishing factors, rice bran oil slows down and prevents the ageing process whilst improving skin’s elasticity making it appear more youthful and plump.
