The Japanese Beauty Secret Revealed - At Home Rice Bran Beauty Spa Treatments

Rice. This ordinary grocery item is much more than a food staple. In Japan, rice bran powder has also been considered a staple skincare ingredient for centuries. In order to maintain a smooth, supple, luminous skin, Geishas were known to use leftover water from washing rice to then wash their face. Check out our blog on how to use rice water for beautiful skin and hair.

Can you imagine a cleanser/face mask that not only gently exfoliates but also moisturizes, brightens — especially discoloration left behind by breakouts, promotes cellular turnover and targets fine lines? Introducing the brand new GingerChi Gentle Exfoliating Rice Bran Cleanser/Masque. Using high-grade rice, we mill it down to finely ground rice bran powder with gentle exfoliating rice husks, and then added the antioxidant properties of ginger; our new multi-tasking product is quickly becoming everyone's favorite products!

Even Forbes Magazine mentions the Gentle Rice Bran Cleanser as the best ancient tradition to remedy dry hands! They got the idea.


Packed with beneficial skincare ingredients

Rich in Vitamin B and Vitamin E, Rice Bran known as an old Japanese secret for smooth, soft skin can help to fight skin inflammation and even decrease signs of acne and other skin conditions like eczema. It also act as a natural anti-aging nutrient, improving the moisture in your skin as well as its elasticity. 
Too good to be true? Not at all! and It gets even better :) When testing the new rice bran powder with our current GingerChi face products, we discovered even more ways to pamper, revitalize and treat our skin — seeing results in as little as a week with daily use! 

Start incorporating the Rice Bran Cleanser into your everyday routine as a gentle exfoliator with the GingerChi Purifying Cleanser or dissolved in water as a clarifying brightening treatment for dark spots and uneven skin tone. Or experiment with your own GingerChi products and let us know what works best for you!

Cleanse and Exfoliate

  • Mix ¼ teaspoon into a paste with water (or combine with the GingerChi Purifying Cleanser).

Brightening Treatment 2

  • Lay the muslin cloth over a medium-sized bowl. Spoon 4 -5 heaped teaspoon of GingerChi Rice Bran powder in the center of the cloth.

  • Take opposite corners of the cloth and tie together. Take the alternative corners and tie together forming a small pouch.

  • Knead the pouch of GingerChi Rice Bran in a bowl of warm water. Squeeze out excess water,

  • Gently rub the pouch over the face and neck in slow circular upward motions.

  • You can continue applying the pouch over hands, arms and elbows.

  • Untie the pouch and empty contents into the bowl of warm water and rinse out the Muslin Cloth and hang out to dry.

  • Use the rich nourishing milky water to wash over face neck, hands and arms.
