Bran, the hard outer layers of cereals and rice, doesn't sound as spectacular as the grain itself but as often happens, the Japanese have found many ways to ensure what remains after they turn brown rice to white does not go to waste. Nuka, as rice bran is called in Japanese, can be eaten, and also used as a preservative and a nutritive ingredient for cosmetics products. Products like the Rice Bran Facial Cream, a revolutionary way to keep the skin's natural moisture.
It isn't just the rice bran, though: the face cream also includes essential oils from jojoba, macadamia nuts, orange peel, palmarosa, ylang-ylang, and bergamot. The result is an amazingly rich cocktail that makes the skin on your face smoother but at the same time firmer, giving it a radiating luster you haven't seen before. If you have always wondered what is the secret behind the Japanese's youthful look, the answer is in the rice!
