World’s First Natural Human – Type Ceramide (Not your synthetic ceramide)

A thousand-year-old natural process joins with the most cutting-edge Asian technology to produce a remarkable skin care line just for you, whatever your age or skin type. Simple, practical, luxurious, abundantly healthy – and effective.

Fermentation has been proven to have extraordinary effects. Think of how fermentation helps the digestive system: the probiotics of yogurt, for example. The health benefits of fermented foods are well documented, and have made their way into the mainstream of health-conscious people all over the world.

Ceramides are biogenic components found in the skin’s outer layer. Its function is to protect against moisture loss to keep skin both youthful and supple. As we lose our native ceramide, our skin becomes dry, exhibits fine lines and discoloration.  Ceramide loss is also a major contributor to eczema, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. By replacing the lost ceramide with our Natural Human-Type Ceramide, our products help to rejuvenate and restore the skin to a more youthful, vibrant condition.

“Ceramide loss is a major contributor to wrinkles. Natural Human – Type Ceramide is the key to maintaining both healthy and youthful – looking skin.” – K. Yunoki, PhD.

Our laboratory has developed a unique process to extract natural Human-Type Ceramide from the byproduct of the centuries old soy-sauce fermentation process. A product that is safe, effective, and stable.

Kombucha based Bio-Cellulose Mask (Not your regular sheet mask)

Around 220 B.C. Kombucha originated in Northeast China (historically referred to as Manchu) and was known as "The Tea of Immortality". Using the same centuries old fermentation process, Lena & Lina created bio-cellulose face masks to reduce skin stress (Stresshield Technology) and block pollution from penetrating skin (Pollushield Technology) . 

Among other key properties, Kombucha is known to contain –

  • Glucuronic acid: Contains detoxification properties.
  • Usnic acid: A natural antibiotic that can be effective against many viruses.
  • Lactic acid (L+): Aids in balancing acids and alkaline in the body and believed to help in the prevention of cancer by helping to regulate blood pH levels(detoxification).
