** About Japanese Rice Bran
Rice bran has been a Japanese skin care essential for centuries, and women in Japan have used it for generations to whiten and nourish their soft, flawless complexion.
Vitamins - Exceptionally high in skin-loving Tocotrienol (the "super" vitamin E) as well as vitamins B1 (Thiamin) and B3 (Niacin).
Melanin and Dry Skin - The only known source of an antioxidant called Gamma-oryzanol. Based on scientific research, this remarkable compound has the ability to reduce skin's melanin levels, and to regulate skin's sebum production (sebaceous glands), preventing dry skin and skin irritations.
Squalene - Contains Squalene, a natural lubricant and skin barrier which helps slow moisture loss and keep skin soft and supple. Squalene comprises about 12% of healthy skin's sebum. Its levels peak in our early 20s and then decline rapidly.
