For our first pick, we focused on: Okinawa

Dehydrated skin. Many of you have it, and we’re here to help. That’s why we decided the development of a moisturizing and hydrating face mask would be the perfect way to kick off this project.

On our hunt for natural materials, we arrived in a land of beautiful ocean and gorgeous nature: Okinawa. Okinawan mozuku, an edible seaweed, is known for its moisturizing power and high mineral content. We decided it was a perfect fit.

The beauty serum in this luxurious face mask is filled with the goodness of the Okinawan sun and sea. Formulated with a focus on deeply hydrating, natural Okinawan ingredients, this luxurious face mask contains ingredients like rare Okinawan mozuku extract (fucoidan), hibiscus extract for skin elasticity, Citrus depressa (shīkuwāsā) extract for moisture retention, and shell ginger extract to soften the skin.

  • Main Ingredient: Okinawan mozuku.
    On Hamahiga Island, where the gods are said to reside, they produce Okinawan mozuku (edible seaweed), which contains moisturizing ingredients and fucoidan.

  • Pamper yourself and relax! The scent of coriander seed (natural essential oil)
    will free your body and mind from the stress of your busy life! To help you feel refreshed and relaxed, it has a sweet, fresh, citrus scent.

Okinawan mozuku brings the beauty of the ocean to your skin.

“Us fishermen in Okinawa eat mozuku every day. We’re healthy all year round, and everyone always comments on how bright our skin is,” says Junko Miyagi. She works at the Katsuren Fisher Co-op, which produces the most Okinawan mozuku in all of Japan.
We asked how it is that the island can produce such large quantities of mozuku. “This part of the ocean is has one of the clearest water in all of Okinawa, so the sunlight can easily reach the sea floor. That’s why our mozuku grows so quickly.” says Shinichi Miyagi, a fisherman.
Grown in the crystal clear waters of Okinawa, mozuku seems to be the secret to how the locals stay to lively and healthy under the harsh sub-tropical sun.

Contains extra virgin Okinawan mozuku seaweed,
moisturizing essence and fucoidan.

  • Fucoidan is an ingredient found in the mucus of seaweeds like kelp, wakame, and mozuku. It acts as a shield against dehydration and predators, while also helping the seaweed repair itself when damaged.
    We consulted an expert chemist who said, “Okinawan mozuku only grows in the clean water around Amami Oshima and Ishigaki islands. The mucus produced by mozuku has extremely few impurities, unlike other seaweeds such as kelp and wakame. This means the mozuku is a source of very high quality fucoidan.”
    The ” Seaweed, Flower and Fruit Beauty Serum Face Mask with Ryukyu Bihada” is rich in fucoidan extracted from Okinawan mozuku. Sit back and relax. The face mask will work its magic on your skin.
