Beautiful with rice bran

The Bijin Nuka brand was born in Kobe in 1894. Nuka 糠 or ぬか, means rice bran, and the bijin 美人 means "beautiful woman," and together they represent the company's commitment to creating quality beauty products made with rice bran, which has been shown and proven, through over a century of experience and research, to have beneficial effects on the skin. It is rich in skin-beneficial vitamin B, anti-aging vitamin E, as well as γ-oryzanol which protects the skin from harmful UV rays, and Orizaburan, which retains the skin's moisture.

Rice Bran Japanese Sweets Mist

Today, June 19th, 2020, Bijin Nuka released a new product series inspired by their home of Kobe, a city famous for its sweets. The Kome Nuka Wa-Sweets Mist 米ぬか和スイーツミスト (Rice Bran Japanese Sweets Mist) lineup is available in three delicious fragrances: Sakura Tart, Matcha Tiramisu and Yuzu Parfait. Each bottle is attractively decorated, so they also make great gifts sure to please anyone who loves Japanese sweets.

Containing rice bran extract in their tried and tested formula, these full-body beauty mists can be used on your hair, face and skin, as they impart the fragrance of Japanese sweets.


In addition to the traditional rice bran moisturizing ingredients, the mist also contains brightening ingredients and tightening ingredients, so you can use it as a moisturizing lotion or a pre-lotion on your face. In addition, it contains a sebum balance-adjusting ingredient which prevents makeup breakdown, so you can spray it on without worrying. You can also use it as a body lotion after a bath or as a hair lotion when your hair becomes dry.
