While not trying to correct any misconceptions, I am sometimes saddened by the low level of literacy in advertising seen on the Internet. Therefore, we will deliver it so that you will have the correct knowledge of the treatment while giving examples of common misunderstandings.

The current situation where correct knowledge of skin and hair care is not permeated
Do you feel that you are doing the right thing with your skin and hair care? The basis of skin care and hair care is “moisturizing”. The human body contains a lot of water, and the closer it gets to the surface of the body, the less water circulates and the less moisture it receives. Also, as we age, we tend to become less hydrated. Skin care products called basic cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners, and hair care products such as treatments can moisturize dry skin and hair. For example, there are misunderstandings such as:
[Example of misunderstanding]
I have mixed skin (the T-zone is oily and the U-zone is a bit dry), so I use cosmetics for mixed skin.
I’m in my 40s, so I bought basic anti-aging cosmetics for tens of thousands of yen.
I think organic lotions are kind to nature.
Organic skin lotion is safe because it is diluted by squeezing plants. I removed my makeup with cooking oil, but since it’s food, it should be good for my skin.
Because they are plant-based, snail and cucumber extracts are good for your skin.
Both basic cosmetics for mixed skin and expensive cosmetics for anti-aging care are products of a kind of marketing and can be said to be fiction created to create demand.
Even if you have combination skin, oily T-zone and dry U-zone, even if you still know what you call combination skin, you can’t have oily and dry skin extracts in the same bottle. It doesn’t make sense because it ends up mixed up.
Also, expensive anti-aging cosmetics are not necessarily bad things, so I think it would be nice to have unlimited money. However, there is no special ingredient for aging care.
The basics of skin care are face wash, lotion, and milky lotion. If you keep this order firmly and take care of the basics, it will moisturize. Misconceptions about “moisturizing the dermis”
Speaking of hydration, there are other big misconceptions about skin care. Lotion moisturizes the stratum corneum, and even though it penetrates, it does not go deep into the skin. Some people
misunderstand that it “penetrates into the dermis”, but if lotion reaches the dermis, it is a very dangerous chemical.
All lotions sold in Japan can only use ingredients that have been approved by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
Therefore, it is good to lightly pat the skin and let the lotion soak in, but it is a clear mistake to say that it reaches the dermis. Is it really “organic”?
Well, it is considered that there is also a misunderstanding in organic. There are so many products in the world claiming to be organic, which is why they are so popular. On the other hand, organic does not have a strict definition. In other words, there is a tendency for those who claim to be organic.
When we hear the word “organic cosmetics,” we have an image of “skin lotions that are made by squeezing some kind of plant extract that seems to be good for the skin, concentrating it tightly, and packing it in a bottle.” If you think about the manufacturing process, you will understand that if you squeeze the extract of some kind of plant that grows in the mountains, too many impurities will be mixed in and you will end up with an unsanitary extract.
In fact, all lotions are man-made, and man-made products are overwhelmingly better than products that claim to be natural. Moisturizing is the basis for both skin and hair care
Skin care and hair care are basically the same. It’s going to be dry when the moisture is gone, so I’d like you to moisturize the basics. Moisturizing is also important for hair care, and moisturizing hair refers to treatment.
You may have heard the word “cuticle” before. A protective layer on the surface of the hair that locks in the moisture and nutrients of the hair. Hair is dry, exposed and exposed to UV damage, and is further damaged by hair coloring products.
Hair care should be done with daily shampoo and treatment, and treatment once a week to once a month. It is better to have as many brands as possible, because it is developed on the premise that you will use as many manufacturers as possible, so it will suit your hair better.
Beautiful, undamaged hair can be felt from the luster of the surface. First, wash away the dirt on the surface of the hair with shampoo and protect it with conditioner. You don’t need to do the treatment every day, so take some time and let the ingredients soak into your hair. In the field of hair care as well, there is a lot of publicity about artificial ingredients in shampoos, such as “transdermal poisons,” that enter the body through the pores, stay in the uterus, and poison the body. However, pores are excretion organs in the first place and do not take in, and shampoo is not poisonous. Of course you can’t take it into your body, but it’s not poisonous. The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare keeps a close eye on the ingredients in shampoos, conditioners, and treatments, so you can use them with confidence. It is important to cultivate scientific thinking in order to fight against these so-called “pseudoscience” vague information. Kiwabi (https://jp-shop.kiwabi.com/) will continue to strive to disseminate correct information, mainly about hair care.
