    There is a beauty legend that says that Japanese Geishas use to bathe in Sake to keep their skin soft and white. It may be true. Japanese rice wine, known as Sake is an ingredient in many Japanese beauty products. Sake contains many ingredients than have been found to help skin stay soft and luminous.


    bosica sake balm is a super-hydrating gel moisturizer that brightens the skin. It contains what is described as “a bioactive Rice Ferment Filtrate derived from an ancient Sake manufacturer based in Kyoto, Japan.” This lightweight multi-tasking gel will appeal to those who hate the feel of creams and oils but still want the benefits of effective hydration and effective anti-aging ingredients.


    Traditional Japanese Sake is rich in thioredoxin (TRX). According to the company, thioredoxin is “known for improving skin barrier function and water content, reducing wrinkle depth, improving firmness, and brightening skin.” It is sometimes described as a protein that acts as a powerful antioxidant.


    bosica sake balm also contains Glycolic Acid, Vitamin C, as well as boscia’s Proprietary Botanical Blend which includes Jojoba Leaf, an antioxidant to help reduce free radical damage, and Willow herb to calm visible redness and irritation.
