Smooth Operator (face exfoliant)
Since the 18th century, Japanese noblewomen used stone ground adzuki beans for beauty. Adzuki powder was placed inside a small silk bag and moistened with water to create a creamy cleanser to gently scrub the face and body. Today cotton bags are used or the powder is applied directly to the face.
Bean powder sloughs and deeply cleanses the skin. Adzuki beans contain saponin, which gives it a natural foaming action to help remove dead skin cells and cleanse pores by drawing out pore clogging sebum, dirt and bacteria that can cause blemishes. It also tightens and softens the skin, and promotes circulation, giving it a healthy, natural glow.
