The best cosmetic ingredient for your skin is the one that’s naturally present in your skin!!


The skin is always protected and managed by “residental bacteria”.

The best ingredients for the skin are those that are “familiar” to the residental bacteria.


When an unfamiliar ingredient is applied, the skin has a perplexing reaction.

This may appear as allergy symptoms.

In some cases, it can be accumulated and become weak, brittle and sensitive.
(In fact, this case is very common these days.)


When an ingredient is getting popular, manufacturers formulate it and begin to compete with each other.

It may be effective in improving skin elasticity and whitening…


However, in fact, the claimed benefits have often unexpected side effects to our skin.

Both the skin and the body functions decline with age.

Therefore, applying ingredients that cause a strain on the skin can be counterproductive.


Manufacturers promote their products as anti-aging and intriguing in many way.
