Nourishing Adaptogen Cream

Rating: 5.0 out of 5.0

Replenishing and stress-balancing moisturizer

This ultra-hydrating moisturiser comes with superior Kampo-based adaptogenic plant extracts. 

We added an extra layer of skin protection, with Reishi, Ukon, Akayajiou and Hatomugi extracts, with their stress-resistance effects.

The KI, KETSU and SUI elements focus on maintaining hyaluronidase levels, and deeply nourishing the blood cells, keeping the skin moisturised and smooth.

This moisturizer includes:

- an exclusive blend of 4 Kampo adaptogens

- high quality rice bran oil

- plant-based squalane

Size: 40ml / 1.4oz.

Application: morning and evening, apply 1 - 2 pumps to face and neck. This gentle and nourishing cream can be applied around the eyes. Your skin feels balanced and replenished with a lasting finish. Also great as a moisturising makeup primer.

Routine: the Nourishing Adaptogen Cream can be used immediately after a deep cleansing. You can add an exfoliation between the cleasing and cream application with our Skin Refining Gel as it will help the skin absorb the cream's nutrients keeping your skin moisturised and smooth.

Love it!

Nourishing and plumping yet not too heavy. Interacts very well with my skin tint. What's not to love?

I have a mature, oily, sensitive and dehydrates skin and the Nourishing Adaptogen Cream is perfect for me. I love it

The best of the best in skin hydration.

I've been fortunate enough to get my hands on this beautiful product, (thank you Kikoc 💖)
I have noticed a visible difference in my skins appearance, with my skin feeling and looking healthy.

I look forward to these two talented ladies in expanding their market, (hopefully downunder!) if not at least to Japan!!
It's a beautiful cream ladies X

Perfect for different weather conditions

I've been using this cream for over two months. Highly recommend it.
In the past, I’ve used face creams from top American, and European brands, but I gradually realized that the prices of skincare products kept increasing while my skin remained the same. I became very frustrated. However, everything changed when I tried the Nourishing Adaptogen Cream. It makes my skin glow and provides excellent hydration without feeling sticky. It's perfect for different weather conditions. This one product fulfills all the requirements, and it's also very convenient to carry. I no longer need to travel with a huge bag of skincare products.
