Wake up to mochi-soft, smooth, clear skin with this nourishing overnight pack.
Fermented food is a significant part of the Japanese diet, and it’s easy to see why – frequently lauded for their health benefits, fermented ingredients are packed full of precious nutrients that deeply nourish our body. Fermented soy products, such as miso, soy sauce, tempeh and natto, have been recognised to have health benefits and a broader nutrient profile. One key benefit of the fermentation process is that fermented food is easier to digest, making it less likely to cause gastric distress.
Fermented soy is also known to increase hyaluronic acid, which not only helps lubricate joints and reduce inflammation, but is also known for its ability to keep skin clear and glowing, helping tissues retain collagen, increase moisture and give skin that youthful elasticity. This probably explains why Japanese women throughout history possess enviable mochi hada-clear skin.
Mochi hada refers to the soft, pure, smooth and bouncy quality of a baby’s skin, and now you can wake up to this with ORBIs’s new Koubijin night time pack. It’s a fuss-free overnight clarity mask, formulated with fermented ingredients to feed your skin as you sleep, helping to overcome dullness, dryness and loss of firmness.
Here’s how the Koubijin night time pack aims to give you gorgeous, radiant skin.
Even Cleopatra knew the benefits of fermentation; it has been said she used to take frequent sour milk baths, which contain lactic acid, to keep her skin looking youthful. The Koubijin night time pack contains lactic acid extracted from fermented soymilk, and this has a powerful skin-brightening effect as it suppresses melanin (the culprit for dark spots and pigmentation) production to give you porcelain-clear skin that glows from within. The soybeans are specially sourced from the aso region, and are richer in protein and antioxidant isoflavone than standard soybeans.
Fermented rice liquor – otherwise known as sake – contains amino acids which are effective in helping skin retain its moisture. Koubijin is formulated with premium sake made with quality yamada nishiki rice in the Mie prefecture, and is especially rich in these moisturising acids. Bid sayonara to dry and dull skin!
The third key component, hydrolysed yeast, is derived from bread yeast and is packed full of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. These enhance collagen production and improve skin elasticity, so skin has that baby skin firmness. The sleeping pack also contains low-molecular hyaluronic acid that penetrates deep within the skin to boost firmness. Furthermore, moisture-wrapping ingredients ensure that all the goodness is sealed in, so you wake up to mochi hada-clear skin in the morning!
