There’s no doubt that Hatomugi’s products are one of the must-buys when it comes to travelling in Japan, especially their skin lotion, one of the best sellers in drug stores in Japan.
The main ingredient used for the products in Reihako Hatomugi is adlay, aka coix seed.Though coix seed is nicknamed Chinese pearl barley, it’s not a type of barley. In Japan, it’s called Hatomugi, whereas in Chinese it’s known as 薏仁. It is said to be good for beauty because it contains a lot of vitamin B group components and amino acids such as vitamin B1 and vitamin B2, which are considered good for warts, like neck warts.
Besides, “Hatomugi” contains glutamate and amino acids which support the flow of blood lymph, which could turn one’s metabolic rhythm of broken skin into a normal cycle, resulting in improvement of skin with detox. Other than that, Koikusenolide, a component contained in “Hatomugi” activates the metabolism of keratinocytes, leading to clear skin without dullness.
With its famous feature as an irrigation water humectant, “Hatomugi'' improves metabolism, which enhances the moisture retention of the skin itself, and promotes moist skin from the inside, bringing to moisturized and fresh skin. It is also said to achieve smooth skin without acne, given that it’s able to suppress acne inflammation and is effective against sebum shine.
Even though there’s no whitening component in the ingredients, whitening effects can surely be expected as one’s metabolism is sped up.
