A little information about the chosen ingredients and their benefits:
Rice powder or flour is a widely known ingredient to treat blemishes, wrinkles and pigmentation. In fact, this ingredient has been used as an anti-aging skin treatment in many Asian countries for centuries. The Geishas in Japan, for example, use rice powder in their beauty routine and despite their heavy makeup, their skin remain porcelain smooth.
Oatmeal has rich anti-oxidant properties and helps undo damage done to your skin by pollution, UV rays and chemicals. Oats helps reduce itching and inflammation and can be used to calm eczema and heal psoriasis. Oats can remove dead skin cells and act as a natural moisturiser due to the beta-glucan they contain, which forms a fine film on your skin leaving skin rehydrated and refreshed.
Green tea contains the antioxidant Epigallocatechin-3-gallate, more affectionately known as EGCG, helps fights against inflammation, acne, rosacea and other skin conditions. Green tea is known to prevent and treat acne, has anti-aging properties, prevents wrinkles and removes fine lines, prevents pigmentation and has been shown to help reactivate dying and damaged cells.
Green clay. This natural beauty remedy is super effective because the minerals from the volcanic ash actually contains calcium, aluminum, magnesium, copper, and zinc. Ideal for both normal and combination skin, it's rejuvenating, healing, and pore tightening in action – great for shrinking large pores and removing impurities.
Calendula is renowned for its soothes and softenening properties.It contains carotenoid, saponin, and flavonoid which are superb in antiphlogistic and cleaning action. It also has an excellent moisturing effect to prevent dryness, leaving skin supple.
Camellia seed oil, has been used for centuries in Japan, known as the Beauty Secret of the Geishas this highly precious oil has also been so loved for centuries across Eastern Asia for its highly restorative and rejuvenating properties.
