Inoue Seikoen - Natural Skincare straight from the farm

Lately, I have been so all over the place (I really don't know what I'm busying at... I just can't find the time to sit down and go thru pics and reading press releases) that I didn't do much blogging which resulting in a lot of backlog.. (I will slowly go thru everything that I've been introduced these couple of months).

I have a cozy little private tour (together with miwitch sometimes back) on Inoue Seikoen at Takashimaya (level 3).



Inoue Seikoen is a natural brand that every drop of Inoue Seikoen contains only ntural cleansing, healing antioxidant and moisturizing properties. Inoue Seikoen doesn't contains any preservatives, fragrance and artificial coloring.

Dream come thru for Inoue Seikoen's fans :
Inoue Seikoen is an Olive oil and citrus-based beauty products and will be permanently available in Singapore by popular demand starting from 1st November 2015 with it own dedicated counter located at Takashimaya Level 3. This also marks the brand's first permanent retail space in the country. Over the last few years, the Japanese farm-based manufacturer of foods and cosmetics has built a presence in Singapore through pop-up retail events and received a growing interest from local shoppers whom it hopes to serve better by establishing a permanent physical presence with face-to-face consultation and service.



Story of Inoue Seikoen ::
In 1940 when its founder, Tasuji Inoue, planted a single orange tree on Shodo Island (otherwise known as Shodoshima, which roughly translates to "small bean island"), Japan - the second largest island on the Seto Inland Sea with a population of about 30,000.

6 years later, a small olive tree was cultivated on farm grounds by Tatsuji. It was his son, Katsuyoshi Inoue, who began studying how to process olives after his first olive harvest in the 1950s. The first cosmetic product from Inoue Seikoen, Beauty Olive oil, was conceived after Katsuyoshi Inoue witnessed how the application of olive oil made the skin of his own hands (which has become rough due to farm work) become more smoother and supple. He eventually expanded the company's manufacturing base from edible oilve oil to olive oil as a skincare product with Beauty Olive Oil in the 1970s.

Today, Inoue Seikoen is home to about 2500 olive trees and 15 varieties of citrus tress and is currently headed by the 3rd generation master farmer, Tomohiro Inoue. The Inoue Family takes pride in the abundant nature that Shodo Island has blessed their farm that promises to deliver only the best products that are both delicious as food and good for the body.



Inoue Seikoen focus on 5 Daily steps to radiance skin::

1) Remove 
take off all makeup and impurities by massaging 2-3 pumps of the Cleansing Olive Oil onto your face. This fragrance-free makeup remover is made with 40% extra virgin olive oil, which processes a natural cleansing ability.

2) Wash off
wash off the cleansing oil (and makeup) with Olive Soap, which has been enriched with natural glycerine and squalene to retain moisture and lipids, and produces a rich lather that removes dead skin cells, excessive oils and impurities. You may also use the Facial Peeling Gel for even more effective cleansing after this step.
 
3) Hydrate
Hydrate and tone your skin with the ‘Seikisui’ Face Lotion, which contains a combination of olive lead, aloe vera leaf, unshu citrus rind extract to heal sun-damaged skin and retain moisture. The lotion also contains other natural extracts derived from plants such as palm and sugarcane, to improve the skin's texture.

4) Condition
Condition your skin by gently spreading Beauty Olive Oil over the face. 

5) Moisturize
Moisturize the face using the Milk Moisturizer, hich is rich in olive leaf extracts and hyaluronic acid to ensure optimal skin hydration. On busy mornings, the Uroi Suhada (Moisture Skin) Gel is a useful alternative to the face lotion and milk moisturizer with its dual function as a toner and moisturizer, such that step 3 may be skipped.
