Adzuki bean powder is a non abrasive powder which helps with exfoliation. Exfoliation gently removes dead skin.
Popular in Japanese skin care, adzuki bean powder helps to soften the skin.
The adzuki [azuki/aduki] bean is a small highly nutritious legume. It is a source of folic acid which helps to increase melanin. Melanin is a natural hair/skin colouring (pigmentation). I prefer cooking with this as it has a dense texture compared to kidney beans.
My love of this legume has taken me on more than a 3yr journey to directly source the ground bean. This came about when I made an adzuki soap under our Cioccolatina brand and took forever to grind the bean.
