What is the premium organic hand care product that our research team aimed at?
As a professional in lactic acid bacteria bacteriocin research and organic cosmetics development, our research team has developed hand care products that can be recommended for medical practice and health-conscious people, taking the following points into consideration.
Development of “synthetic disinfectant-free” hand care products
Synthetic disinfectants may help disinfect germs that grow on rough hands, but they are irritating to the human body and do not biodegrade, so if the skin remains, it will not have a positive effect on the body. It has the side effect of entering the body through a wound on the skin and not being able to enter the mouth.
Therefore, our research team aimed to develop the following products. Hand care products that do not contain synthetic disinfectants such as benzethonium chloride and IPMP (isopropylmethylphenol), and bleaching and disinfectants such as chlorine and CIO2.
Therefore, by blending the patented lactic acid bacterium bacteriocin preparation “Neonaisin-e ® ︎” that is safe to swallow while approaching a wide range of trouble-causing bacteria, the mechanism of action that safely approaches the skin-causing bacteria and skin trouble-causing bacteria is developed. We aimed to develop hand care products that can be used to keep hands safer and cleaner.
Development of “alcohol (ethanol) -free” hand care products
Alcohol (ethanol) is a convenient ingredient for sterilization and storage of products, but it has the side effect of further drying and damaging the skin damaged by disinfection and hand washing, which is not preferable for allergic people and infants.
“Alcohol (ethanol)” is enough just by disinfecting.
Therefore, our research team started development with the aim of using products that do not contain alcohol (ethanol) for skin and hand skin care.
Development of hand care products that “make only with” edible “food ingredients”
Transdermal absorption and internal absorption of chemical substances that are not safe for the human body through the skin are thought to have the same negative effects on the human body as absorption through the oral mucosa.
In particular, chemical substances easily penetrate into the dermis layer from the skin damaged by the increase in disinfection and hand washing.
In addition, when you are in the medical field, raising children, raising pets, or cooking, it leads not only to your own body and health, but also to the oral intake and health of patients, families, babies, and dogs.
Therefore, daily use of chemicals during hand care should not be recommended for health conscious people, medical professionals, those who are cooking or raising children, or those who are licked by babies or dogs. Our research team aimed to develop hand care products using only “edible” food ingredients.
Development of hand care products that do not contain “petroleum-derived ingredients” such as “silicon” and “synthetic polymers” to achieve a smooth feel.
When developing a safe organic hand cream, what is often required of consumers is “a moist, non-greasy, smooth feel with safety ingredients.”
However, you will notice that if you make your own cream with natural ingredients such as shea butter and vegetable oil, it is difficult to achieve a “smooth feel” with only natural vegetable oil and natural ingredients.
With only natural plant ingredients and vegetable oils and fats, they will become “sticky” after being stretched out.
At that time, silicon such as “dimethicone”, “cyclomethicone”, “cyclopentasiloxane”, “mineral oil (refined petroleum / mineral oil)”, and “petrolatum” are often blended to give a feeling of “smoothness”. It is a petroleum component such as vinyl polymer such as “paraffin”, “carbomer”, “copolymer” and “crosspolymer”.
It’s hard to understand, but mineral oil is the oil that remains after making plastics and other industrial products from petroleum.
There are machine oils for bicycles, engine oils, lubricating oils, spray cans, and other chemical products in your home.
These are made of the above petroleum-derived mineral oils (mineral oils), silicon, polymers, etc.
As you can see once you put these on your hands, the above petroleum ingredients make your hands feel very smooth.
And by adding these ingredients to the botanical cream, which tends to be sticky, you can easily achieve “moist, chewy, and chewy, non-greasy and smooth feel” at low cost.
The biggest feature of petroleum components is that they are “cheap”.
Oils derived from petroleum are 1/10 to 1/4 the price of oils obtained from living things such as animals and plants.
The time and effort and value of oil, which can be obtained by growing plants and animals, differ greatly depending on the presence or absence of nutrients for humans.
For chemical manufacturers, the raw material is cheap because it is waste oil of petroleum, it is inorganic and does not deteriorate easily, it is suitable for mass production and long-term storage, low cost production and profit expansion, and cream with a feeling similar to products made from vegetable oil is cheap. It has the advantage of being able to be made in large quantities.
Consumers have the advantage of being “wallet-friendly” because they can buy creams that look similar to products made from vegetable oils and animal oils at low prices.
As for the effect on the skin, it has a chemical composition completely different from that of sebum, so it does not penetrate into the skin and forms a vinyl-like oil film on the surface of the skin to protect the skin from external stimuli.
The oil film is hard to peel off and is often used in hand creams to protect the skin from lipsticks and foundations that are expected to stay on for a long time, as well as strong surfactants.
On the other hand, the disadvantage of petroleum components is that they have no nutrients for humans and cannot be expected to have a beauty effect.
Mineral oil is just a refined vinyl-like inorganic oil film that does not contain any nutrients called “essential fatty acids” such as oleic acid and palmitoleic acid contained in vegetable oils.
In addition, because it becomes an inorganic oil film and does not penetrate into the skin, even if there are plant components containing nutrients, if petroleum components are mixed together, the beauty effect on the skin cannot be expected.
In other words, if you mix petroleum-derived ingredients with plant ingredients that have nutrients in your product, the oil film will interfere and you will not be able to deliver nutrients to your skin.
Another characteristic of petroleum components is that the oil film is stronger than vegetable oil, making it difficult to remove. Mineral oil is impermeable and remains on the skin for a long time, clogging healthy pores and hindering skin respiration. , Skin troubles may occur.
In the case of hand cream, the oil film of petrolatum, silicon, polymer, and mineral oil (mineral oil) that has been rubbed against the skin for many years cannot be easily removed from the pores and epithelium even with soap or cleansing agents.
As those who make up will understand, make-up foundation that is hard to remove is also a petroleum component that is hard to remove even if you try to remove it.
To remove the hard-to-remove makeup foundation, it is necessary to use a homogeneous petroleum-based surfactant with strong detergency. Cleansing that falls off smoothly is a product that has extremely strong oil decomposition and degreasing ability, surface activity and detergency.
And every day, the make-up foundation, which is a petroleum-based makeup that is hard to remove, is peeled off from healthy bare skin with a strong petroleum-derived synthetic surfactant and cleansing agent.
Too much sebum, rough skin, widen pores, red face, strawberry nose, and sebum is secreted to cover too much sebum, causing various skin problems such as oiliness of shine, acne surface, and pimples. There is a possibility that they will be connected.
Why don’t you make up and cleanse the skin other than the face (the back of the arm and thighs are well-textured) without widening pores, red and inflamed, and not greasy? You will notice.
Similar to synthetic bactericides, products with superior chemical substances have the disadvantage that chemical substances that have a low affinity for the human body are absorbed by the human body through rough skin and cannot be put into the mouth.
Our research team can take care of bare skin on a daily basis with these petroleum ingredients, but when we really think about our family and loved ones, we think that the beauty method is not good for healthy bare skin.
This is because it is thought that human beings have been doing skin care and beauty methods with plant ingredients since ancient times tens of thousands of years ago, and industrial products made by emulsifying petroleum ingredients with water in Germany after the Industrial Revolution. Petroleum-derived creams were invented in the early 1900s. It spread to the world in the 1950s after World War II. Skin care and beauty methods using petroleum ingredients have been around for decades.
As with today’s plastic containers, there are many things that have not yet been clarified to humankind, such as side effects on the human body and the effects on environmental destruction and climate change such as water quality and air pollution.
On the other hand, the beauty plant ingredients that are thought to have been used by human beings for hundreds of thousands of years in the history of evolution, carefully selecting plants that are good for their bodies, for skin care and beauty methods, even before the birth of science. Safety, usefulness to humankind, and effects on the skin have been achieved without side effects on the human body or pollution of the natural environment of the earth rather than petroleum components.
And in the 2020s, alternative biomaterials and biotechnology research that have less impact on the human body and the environment will be more advanced technologies than the manufacturing technology using petroleum raw materials in the 1900s, and will replace the mainstream of the coming era. This is because it is a new research, technology, and industry.
As you can imagine, the coloring of the body used by the old people at festivals (the origin of makeup), the dyes that dye clothes (the origin of fashion), for example, “lipstick” in Japan. “Makeup base” and “clothing dye” were all plant materials.
With the development of the chemical industry, various uses of petroleum have progressed in the last 100 years, and various raw materials have been replaced from plant raw materials, which are difficult to mass-produce and low-cost production, to petroleum raw materials, which can be mass-produced and produced at low cost. And, in fact, it is petroleum oils such as tar and machine oil that are harder to remove on the body and clothes than vegetable oils.
When modern consumers pursue the needs of “cheap” and “difficult to remove” for make-up cosmetics, they cannot meet those needs with plant materials that are gentle on the body but difficult to mass-produce at low cost (old lipsticks and The makeup base is easy to lose makeup and will fall off quickly),
It is not good for human health and the natural environment, but it is a petroleum-based cosmetic that can be mass-produced “cheaply” and “difficult to fall” in order to meet consumer needs, reduce costs, and increase sales and profits. It can be said that companies needed to develop and sell cleansing products for consumers.
In fact, even nowadays, there are calls for pollution of the global environment by plastics, and there is a legal regulation that plastic bags for shopping will be charged, but many consumers are better than environmentally friendly bottled and canned beverages. However, since we choose PET bottled beverages whose contents can be seen, there is no sign that the development and production of PET bottled beverages by companies will decrease unless legal regulations are created.
However, the times are about to change dramatically in the last few years.
The world is changing from developed countries, as the state of California in the United States announced that it will ban the sale of gasoline vehicles in the future to prevent global warming.
The generational change of research technology and industry mainstream is progressing rapidly.
And even though mineral oil (mineral oil) is cheap and refined oil and has high purity, many people today use petroleum-derived edible oil such as tempura oil made from mineral oil (mineral oil) and oil for salads. There is a reason why you don’t want to use it, and in the future, cheap prices and wall-friendly will not be the first priority for shaping your own health and beauty.
Which is better, vegetable oil or petroleum? It doesn’t have an answer, but each person’s beliefs, values, and tastes.
I think it’s a wonderful time to have products with various ideas all over the world and to have choices based on your own values at that time.
This time, for Bodypiece Premium Hand Care Cream, we do not use petroleum ingredients that can easily realize a “smooth feeling” at a low cost, but only “edible” beauty plant ingredients that are safe even if it costs money, and “moist with safe ingredients”.・ We have devoted a lot of R & D time to making it “smooth and non-greasy” while being chewy and chewy, aiming for an exquisite natural balance texture with “comfortable usability”.
In addition, the barrier veil component that protects the skin from external stimuli is jojoba oil and beeswax, which have been used since ancient times as excellent barrier components instead of petroleum components such as petrolatum, paraffin, mineral oil (mineral oil), and synthetic polymers. Was adopted.
Barrier veil ingredients are essential for hand care products, unlike products for the face and other bodies, for water work, hand washing, and disinfecting hand skin, which traps moisture, protects from external stimuli and water, and creams. This is because it is important to prevent the ingredients of the product from being easily washed away or removed.
Jojoba oil, which is native to arid regions of Mexico and the United States, is rich in wax esters (wax), which accounts for more than 20% of human sebum, and is also rich in nutrients such as amino acids, minerals, vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E. I’m out. It covers the surface of the skin and protects the moisture and elasticity of the skin. Since it is a component similar to human sebum, it fits well on the skin and is less likely to clog pores, making it an ideal natural barrier veil component.
We also use beeswax, which has been used in ointments since the Middle Ages in Europe, and is a refined wax that is the source of nests collected from plants by honeybees.
Like jojoba oil, it contains about 70% wax ester (wax), which is a component that accounts for more than 20% of human sebum, and is ideally useful for protecting rough skin from water work and disinfection. It is a natural barrier veil ingredient.
We hope that you will continue to make more than 100 prototype samples day and night, and try out the feeling of use and the effect on your skin of Bodypiece Premium Hand Care Cream, which was created after repeated trial and error.
Development of “Vaseline-free” hand care products
“Vaseline” is one of the components of mineral oil made from petroleum. It is a very easy-to-use petroleum component that produces petroleum, has few impurities, and has a smooth texture.
The petroleum film creates a vinyl-like barrier veil on the wound and skin, which can protect it from external stimuli and is very useful for application to affected areas of burns, rough skin of babies, and other skin inflammation. The price is also very cheap and I think it is a useful ingredient.
However, as mentioned above, hand care cannot nourish the bare skin, and it only has a skin barrier effect that covers the surface with a petroleum film such as vinyl.
Therefore, there are few people who care for their face only with “Vaseline”.
External protection is sufficient for babies and young people, but it is difficult to keep the skin youthful and beautiful for those who have lost nutrients and water inside the skin due to aging without nutrition. I have a challenge.
In addition, if “Vaseline” is added to hand care products, the protective function closes the pores like vinyl and covers the surface of the skin with a petroleum film, so the nutritional components added at the same time do not reach the skin. There is a possibility that it will end up.
As an example of the experience of many people, the hands of an old woman whose surface is shiny but her skin is stiff and thin, and the hands of an old woman whose surface is not shiny but whose skin is plump and fresh. I think you have seen it.
If only the surface of the hand is protected like vinyl, it tends to be like the former, and if the hands are nourished and cared for, there are many cases where the latter can be kept beautiful from the inside of the skin. I will.
As you can see from the above, you can actually continue the basic care of your face with “Vaseline” for a long period of time.
In addition, “Vaseline” has the effect of easily getting sunburned, so if you are a young person and want to get dark quickly, you may try applying “Vaseline” to get a sunburn. However, it should be noted that it has the side effect of being susceptible to stains and inflammation due to ultraviolet rays.
For the above reasons, our research team aimed to develop a hand care product that does not contain “Vaseline”.
BODYPEACE Premium Hand Care Cream uses jojoba oil and beeswax, which are beauty plant ingredients that have been used since ancient times as nutrient-containing and excellent barrier veil ingredients, instead of the petroleum ingredient “Vaseline”.
Development of hand care products that “containing many ingredients that nourish the skin”
As explained in the section on “Vaseline”, for those who want to nourish the skin and keep it beautiful and youthful, it is necessary to provide the skin with many nutrients in addition to the veil barrier that protects the skin from external stimuli. I think.
Products with superior chemical ingredients are inexpensive, suitable for mass production and long-term storage, and are suitable for mass sales, but like food, chemical ingredients are poor in nutrients and are not preferable for maintaining beautiful bare skin. ..
Nowadays, the chemical ingredients contained in products can be obtained by individuals through online shopping, etc., and consumers can also know what kind of effect can be obtained by applying these ingredients to the face, hands and skin. It’s an era where you can do it, so it’s a good experience for each person to try out the effects of each chemical ingredient on their own face and bare skin.
However, in our research team,in order to develop genuine-oriented, high-quality hand care products that can be confidently recommended to our families, various “eats” that human beings have loved for a long time all over the world, including a lot of nutrition for bare skin. We aimed to develop a hand care product with a formulation that combines clinical efficacy and safety by combining “beauty plant ingredients, beauty ingredients based on the latest research, and lactic acid bacteria biotechnology technology from Kyushu University.”
Development of hand care products that are “delicious” even if you put them in your mouth
As a professional in the development of organic skin products, we sometimes actually lick cosmetics during development to determine the quality and ingredients.
That’s because a product that tastes bad in your mouth can be a product that tastes bad for your skin.
In other words, products made with ingredients that are really safe and secure for the body are not as delicious as the homemade dishes of the family, but in many cases they are not tasty and cannot be eaten. It is.
Invented in the 2010s, when there were no side effects on the body, which was scientifically researched and proven to be effective, unlike the pre-dawn era of science, in which Chinese herbs that had side effects on the body were infused and drank, saying that they suffered from good medicine We are now in an era where you can choose “good medicine and delicious” without having to put up with the worst taste of the original food that has been carefully cultivated without using new bio-ingredients or pesticides or chemical substances.
In the 2020s, we have already realized the importance of controlling the destruction of the natural environment of the earth and the reality of the crisis, which are common issues for the crisis of human survival on the earth, but we are already in the era of generational change of research technology.
Some of the chemical products by the chemical industry, which boasted its heyday in the 1900s for the past 100 years, have collected the best of the chemical components of the inventions of humankind in the past, and are not something that can be put into the mouth at all.
Naturally, they are not something that can be put into the mouth of living things and microorganisms in the natural environment.
In addition, chemical substances produced by humans and kept flowing into the natural environment are accumulated in microorganisms, marine products, plants and animals, and will surely return to the human body at the top of the earth’s food chain.
Which one to choose in the future will make you feel good for yourself, or will it actually have an effect on your skin?
Please try licking and comparing your cosmetics.
Also, I hope you can actually feel it for yourself.
Just as beautiful natural and carefully cultivated foods really taste delicious throughout the body, products that feel delicious for the taste of the oral cavity that is connected to the skin of the whole body will surely please the bare skin.
Whether “I like natural ingredients” or “I like chemical ingredients”, “I suffer from good medicine mouth” or “I like good medicine mouth” is a story of each individual’s taste, but as a consumer, the food and taste are lifestyles. The taste, the product you choose, and the way you live are compatible with each individuality.
With the development of science and technology, we now have the freedom and choice to choose what our body and mind are happy with and how we live.
Also, for example, rather than focusing on others over health, spending unhealthy and unhealthy days, getting sick, going to the hospital, being cared for by children and grandchildren, entering the facility and taking unpleasant medicine.
Careful about your health, what you put in your mouth, what you put on your skin, go to the gym or pool, exercise moderately, do not get sick, do not take bad medicine, and strive to live healthy and happy days with your family until you die. I think that there are modern life options to do.
Through the continuous research efforts and technological innovations of Japanese industry, academia and government, our research team feels the values of true health and things that the body is obediently pleased with, and the research background and contents.・ For people all over the world who have a wide view of choosing actual clinical effects as purchasing-oriented points, environmental literacy and coexistence morals as purchasing-oriented points
While responding to clinical effects in the medical field, we challenged to make hand care products made only from “edible” food ingredients that are safe to put in the mouth and have less environmental impact, and even if they are put in the mouth, they are “delicious to not tasty”. We aimed to develop hand care products.
Development of “synthetic fragrance-free” hand care products
Synthetic fragrances are compounding ingredients that are listed as “fragrances” in the column for displaying all ingredients.
Regarding the scent used in each product, the difference between a chemical-derived synthetic fragrance made by imitating natural essential oils and a product using naturally-derived essential oils collected from real plants and flowers is different for each consumer. It is possible to identify with.
The method is to apply each hand cream to your hands for a while, and if you don’t have time, try washing with water.
Natural essential oils obtained from natural plants and flowers have an immediate scent and no scent.
On the other hand, synthetic fragrances, which are chemical substances, leave the scent on the skin. Then, it mixes with the sweat and body odor of the person who wears it, and emits a “smell” that you do not notice for a long time.
In addition, the smell of “sewage” mixed with synthetic fragrances such as baths and shampoos in rivers and beaches near the city is due to the fact that synthetic fragrances and chemical components cannot be biodegraded by nature and microorganisms in waterworks. This is because it floats while giving off a rotting odor for a long period of time.
Although it is a synthetic fragrance that pollutes the natural environment and microbial ecosystem, it has the advantage of being very inexpensive to make.
On the other hand, essential oils obtained by distilling natural plants and flowers cost 10 to 100 times more than synthetic fragrances artificially made from chemical substances.
Furthermore, even for essential oils, organic essential oils grown by biodynamic farming or pesticide-free / organic cultivation require several to several tens of times more labor and cost than essential oils cultivated using pesticides of ordinary farming methods.
However, its value is very different from synthetic fragrances, and the natural aromas of herbs, herbs, and flowers that have been used by humans since ancient times bring various usefulness to humans.
Our research team can confidently recommend it to your family and loved ones, and for those who are looking for genuine products.
Not only care for hands, but also relaxing and refreshing with the aroma of natural essential oils,
Can be used in medical settings and at home without residual scent
Do not offend the people around you with the “fragrance” caused by body odor mixed with synthetic fragrances that you do not notice.
Do not absorb chemical substances transdermally as much as possible,
Being a safe ingredient to eat,
Do not destroy the microbial ecosystem even if it is discharged into the natural environment,
We aimed to develop hand care products that do not use synthetic fragrances.
The essential oil contained in “BODYPEACE Premium Hand Care Cream” is an organic genuine lavender essential oil cultivated by biodynamic farming in the land of Piemonte, Italy, which is said to be of high quality in the world, in the Rose Valley of Kazanlak, Bulgaria. Contains organic Damask rose otto essential oil that is cultivated organically.
They are carefully cultivated and handmade without pesticides by the hands of our partner farmers, Italian and Bulgarian friends and family.
If you get used to the scent of real essential oils obtained from plants and flowers every day, you will soon be able to regain the sense of scent difference from synthetic fragrances.
Natural herbs, herbs and flowers have various ingredients and effects that have not yet been elucidated by human science.
We hope that you can enjoy the rich aromas of plants and flowers that have captivated the hearts of royal aristocrats since ancient times, which cannot be achieved with fragrances that resemble natural essential oils synthesized by humans.
Development of “reasonable price for everyday use” hand care products
We have a philosophy for product development of our project that “a good product includes the offer price”.
As those who can understand the value of high-quality products by looking at the ingredients will understand, it is a hand care cream with a prescription that contains beauty plant ingredients from all over the world, similar to expensive facial beauty creams. , We have developed it aiming at a reasonable price that is easy for everyone to use.
In addition, the genuine lavender and damask rose organic essential oils used are both very expensive due to the steam distillation method that does not use chemical solvents, but by directly partnering with organic farmers in the production areas of Piemonte, Italy and Kazanlak, Bulgaria, Our goal was to create products that bring new value to people around the world by offering them at high quality and affordable prices.
In this project, we combine lactic acid bacterium bacteriocin preparations with unprecedented functionality and various beauty plant ingredients collected from all over the world, but at an unprecedented affordable price, new benefits to people all over the world. We believe that providing lactic acid is also one of the technological innovations and innovations created by Japanese national universities and research institutes that will evolve the entire human race.
We are focusing on daily new research and development so that people all over the world can enjoy the new value and benefits of this technological innovation and innovation originating in Japan.
Development of organic skin products that “combined clinical efficacy and safety in the medical field”, which was difficult to achieve with organic products until now
In the field of organic skin product development in the world, the development of products using organic plant raw materials that are as safe as possible has been developed not only from Europe, which is the origin of raw materials and the birthplace of organic cosmetic brands, but also from raw material trading companies in the last 15 years. As long as imported raw materials are available, we are now in an era where people can plan and produce easily anywhere.
In addition, the spread of the Internet has made it possible for individuals to purchase organic plant ingredients from around the world online, making it easy for consumers to make organic cosmetics in their own kitchens.
However, although it is possible to create products with an image that is kind to the body using only extracts and oils obtained from plants, it is difficult to achieve “clinical effects” and “functions” that meet consumer needs in line with the changing times. It has become the current situation.
In order to promote the effect and functionality, not only organic cosmetics and promotions that try to clarify “evidence”, but the value of the effect data is not large, and the key ingredients of new beauty plants are also attached. After all, it is now difficult to emerge new scientific innovations and undiscovered effectiveness for human beings using only the plant components that human beings have used since ancient times.
As the world’s technological innovation progresses day by day, since the latter half of the 2000s, when the boom in organic cosmetics was at its peak, the world’s research and development sites for organic and natural cosmetics have been consuming the above-mentioned effects and functionality on the skin. It is difficult to create major technological innovations that meet the needs of consumers, and as the times change, the category has become an old fashion legacy.
In addition, the rarity of organic cosmetics, the sense of class that the brand has, and the brand loyalty are diluted. The product life cycle has passed the maturity period, and in the mass sales floor where there are a lot of similar commodity products that can be made by anyone who makes it, the appealing points and purchasing emphasis are “cheap” and “new sales promotion” are few factors.
In the development of “Bodypiece Premium Hand Care Cream” this time,
Compared to chemical cosmetics, the traditional organic cosmetics, which featured only a safety image,
Fusion of academic research and cutting-edge biotechnology patented technology in collaboration with national universities and research institutes in order to realize true sincere safety and “clinical effects” and “functions” that meet consumer needs according to the times ,
Developed a new era of organic products that “combines clinical efficacy and safety in the medical field,” which was difficult to achieve with conventional organic skin products.
Innovating and renewing the organic cosmetics industry, which is entering a period of decline,
We aimed to create new products that would be the beginning of a new era of organic cosmetics that would be supported by many people and could revitalize the entire industry and bring about a new growth period.
