Locally-crafted soaps with Japanese roots. Literally. As in burdock roots. Made by Beauty Secrets of Japan, these soaps are derived from common Japanese ingredients used in traditional food and medicine. There is Azuki (red bean), Dokudami (chameleon plant), Ryokucha (green tea), Yomogi (mugwort), Kaisou (seaweed), Gobou (burdock root), Daizu (soy bean), Genmai (rice bran), bamboo charcoal and one of my favourite herbs, Shiso (beefsteak plant).
