Original Face Powder with Kudzu

Original Face Powder with Kudzu


Absolutely translucent with organic cotton puff.

After extensive research, Chidoriya has developed a new face powder using a traditional Japanese ingredient called "Kudzu" as a base it is also known as Kudzu yu (Kudzu tea). Chidoriya has discovered that it works extremely well on the skin, giving a natural glow and absorbs excess sebum. If you apply only Kudzu powder on your face you might end up looking like "Daifuku mochi" rice cake…extremely white and powdery…not your first choice. So Chidoriya mixed Kudzu with pure "Kinuunmo" Clay mineral which makes it smooth to the touch on the skin, pearl and coral powders which also help absorb excess sebum and tone then finally added wild camellia oil to moisturize and nourish the skin.
Chidoriya's face powder is made of all natural Kudzu powder and "Kinuunmo". The combination of both these ingredients enhances the skins sheen without preventing it from breathing and helps to maintain moisture. Generally it is recommended for all skin types including oily skin and/or acne-prone skin and also people with sensitive skin who don't want to use liquid foundation. It creates natural coverage and a subtle makeup look. It will protect the skin and create even better coverage if you apply more layers. "If" you don't have sensitive skin a liquid foundation can be used in conjunction with this product. Of course we recommend using only an all natural or organic "liquid foundation". It it also suitable for professional use.

Chidoriya uses Tennyoko (a blend of natural essential oils featuring Lavender Oil, Geranium Oil, Rosemary Oil, Palmarosa Oil, Maychang Oil, Benzoin Oil, Cedarwood Oil) for the aroma in this powder.

Pure "Kinuunmo" is a clay mineral which is an extremely fine & smooth powder that has pearly sheen to it. It has fine crystals that are impossible to see that with the naked eye. It is extremely rare to find this high quality pure clay mineral anywhere else in the world except Japan. We use only the highest quality clay mineral without any other accessory minerals (Metallic sodium) in it. By mixing with this "Kinunmo" and Kudzu powder, we could obtain the smoothest, the brightest and the highest sense of translucence.

Why does Chidoriya use Coral powder and Pearl powder in the Kudzu face powder? Those two ingredients contain various Minerals including Calcium, Taurine (contained in numerous fish & shellfish), Zinc, Magnesium, Manganese, Sodium etc. and there are about 22 kinds of amino acids which is essential for maintaining good health such as "Conchiolin Amino Acid" which is a good quality protein that has similar property to collagenous fiber. Also there is a large amount of Glycine and Alanine. Unlike other shellfish the Pearl possesses such beautiful luminous radiance because the amounts of protein which makes a significant difference from others. Conchiolin Amino Acid maintain moisture of the skin and helps boost ability of NMF (Natural moisturizing factor) that exists in the horny layer of the skin. Also it is said that it has bioactivity such as antioxidant and cell activity properties. The Coral Powder is a porous medium material that works efficiently to absorb and removes dead skin cells, impurities and malodorous ingredients, sweat absorption and exhalation with high breathability. Also it is said to give some sun protection. Chidoriya takes all these benefits into account as we include this in the Kudzu Face powder as a part of skin balancer and oil absorber.

The reason why Chidoriya loves Kudzu from Morino Yoshinokuzu Honpo: What is Morino Yoshinokuzu Honpo's Kudzu? Kudzu roots (which is a 100% natural food product) contain starch which is refined repeatedly with only purest ground water in the coldest season of Nara Ouda, then let them dry. This fine-textured Kudzu Powder has an incredibly smooth texture if eaten. That is why Kudzu is suitable ingredient for a face powder; it provides the finest finish & texture unlike corn starch. Kudzu has natural antioxidant and anti-inflammation properties.

Winter time in Nara Ouda is severely cold and is the perfect time for manufacturing Kudzu Powder. The region also is gifted with purest and most beautiful ground water. They are able to suppress propagation of microorganisms during the manufacturing process (called Yoshino zarashi) and this makes the highest quality Kudzu Powder (called Yoshino Hon Kudzu).

Chidoriya's manufacturer has absolutely no data that Kinuunmo is carcinogenic. There are no reports about Kinuunmo mica (or even impurities) is a carcinogenic material. It is 100% pure "Kinuunmo" Clay minerals and does not contain any Asbestos or free radicals.
