Can a fungus moisturize your hands, minimize rushes, and leave your skin smooth and without that sticky feeling often associated with hand creams? It can if it's Aspergillus oryzae, which lies at the core of the Kome Koji Rice Malt Hand Cream. Used for the fermentation of many Japanese products including sake, soy sauce, and miso paste, this special fungus can be very beneficial for your skin. If you are still having second thoughts, rest assured that the koji (that's the Japanese name for Aspergillus oryzae) in this cream comes from Hishiroku, a Kyoto factory that has been making it for 300 years!
There's more to Kome Koji Rice Malt Hand Cream than the actual koji fungus, though: starting with sake lees extract and moving on to damask rose oil, yuzu fruit oil, grapefruit fruit oil, melissa leaf oil, bergamot fruit oil, lemongrass oil, and lime oil, the skincare cream features an amazing cocktail of ingredients that feed your hands' skin, rejuvenate it, and make it look radiant. Best of all, these ingredients are 100% free of mineral oils, preservatives, petroleum surfactants, or synthetic fragrances. The cream is available in two very Japanese fragrances: citron and, of course, cherry blossom!
