Japanese lifestyle retailer rikumo is known for its artisanal product range, with this red bean soap appealing to fans of authentic and organically sourced skincare. Chidoriya's Red Bean & Brown Sugar soap is a modern product inspired by an age-old remedy -- one that was considered a beauty secret among Japan's geisha population centuries ago.
This soap consists of a vegetable gycerin base, camellia oil, Azuki Red Bean powder and brown sugar which are fused to create an exfoliating solution that will clean out and unclog pores. In addition to revitalizing a dry or dull complexion, this exfoliating soap works as a gentler alternative to similar products which can irritate sensitive skin.
As the demand for natural beauty products grows, retailers are not only promoting independent beauty labels, but are also relaunching products inspired by historic or cultural beauty rituals.
