Born from Okinawa's Wisdom and Blessings of Nature
From ancient times, Pork has been a familiar ingredient to not only the table, but also used to protect the body from the sun, Heat and Humidity. The Okinawans temperament to value and respect nature, inspired ancient Okinawans to not waste any parts of the pig. For that purpose, the pig’s lard has been used to protect the skin and hair from dehydration and other uses. Lard Labo skin care cream was born from Okinawa’s very own wisdom and blessings of its nature.
Approaching Melanin, the cause of dark Spots and freckles with Animal fats and oils, leading you to beautiful soft skin.
Lard is known to blend in well with human skin. Lard labo skin care cream is combined with a 10% mixture of the rare Okinawan Agu pork as an emollient component. Perfectly blended softly just like whipped cream. The plant based essential oils and moisturizing components keeps the skin moist, leaving it smooth and soft to the touch. It is also effective on dark spots as well.
Creating a Melty touch formula by using natural plant emollient components.
By using Agu Lard abundantly we created a formula that melts and blends instantly when applied to the skin. In addition, we combined Almond oil, shea butter, mango seed oil to protect the moisture in your skin from evaporating. This light, non-sticky cream will assist you to achieve beautiful and bright healthy skin.
Okinawa's Agu pork Lard blends well with your skin. It is considered to be very effective for the human body and is certified as one of the 33 components for medicinal cosmetics.
We used liquid oil from selected sweet almonds. Almond oil is highly permeable and has a high moisturizing and brightening effect on the skin.
The melting point of shea butter is low from 28-45℃ and melts when applied onto the skin. Shea butter not only moisturizes the skin but also protects your hair from the strong ultraviolet radiation and keeps it moisturized.
Mango seed oil
This oil is obtained by mango seeds and performs well in permeating deep into the skin. The ultraviolet rays are composed by A-waves (UVA) and B-waves (UVB). Mango seed oil contains substance to cut out UVB which is the main cause of wrinkles and sagging of skin.
Combined with Hyaluronic acid and 4 types of plant extract
Along with Hyaluronic acid which performs highly in moisturizing, we combined Hibiscus extract, Shell ginger leaf extract, Aloe vera extract, and turmeric extract that will protect the skin from drying and improves the skin texture.
Hyaluronic acid Na
Hyaluronic acid is a fundamental element for moisturizing. It is a substance that we all contain in our bodies but will decrease over time with aging. It is highly expected as a substance to permeate and moisturize the skin.
Extracted from the hibiscus flower, the Hibiscus extract plays a part in strengthening the skins barricade and restrains the damages to your skin from the Ultraviolet waves and prevents dark spots on the skin.
Getto-Shell Ginger leaf extract
Getto being a plant in the Ginger family, contains 34 times more of Polyphenol than red wine. It is anticipated to have an effect on creating beautiful skin and has been noticed as a sacred miracle drug in Okinawa.
Aloe vera leaf extract
Aloe vera, grown in warm weather is familiar as medicine from antient times in Japan. Aloe has the ability to make the skin supple and radiant, as well as high effects on restoring and regenerating skin tissues.
Turmeric Rhizome extract
When bathing in ultraviolet rays, the major cause of wrinkles and sagging of skin, Elastin-Decomposing Enzyme (Elastase) becomes active and decomposes the Elastin in your skin. Turmeric Rhizome extract operates to stop the activeness of Elastase and protects the Elastin which leads to preventing wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
