Thann Thursday: Discover the Rice Collection


If there's one thing strikingly noticeable about Asian women is that they have (in general) beautiful, luminous skin. It's not a secret that they have a strict regimen of both skin care and diet that provides that inherent glow but there is also something that have been kept a secret from the West until recently.

Today, let's unravel that secret...

Rice Bran Oil.

What is it you ask? Despite its uncommon use in skincare in the West, this oil has a long and successful history in Japan where women, known as the “Rice Bran Beauties” have been using the oil on their face and body for hundreds of years. Rice Bran Oil is the oil extracted from the germ and inner husk of rice. Rice bran Oil has been shown to reverse the effects of aging by slowing the formation of wrinkles thanks to its concentration of three Vitamin E's.


Rice Bran Oil is full of antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, ferulic acid, linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, and oryzanol. The oil acts as both a carrier and emollient. In Japan, Rice Bran Oil is used as a skin and hair beauty enhancer. It is also used throughout the world in a variety of cosmetics, especially for those that treat dry and mature skin. 

Benefits of Rice Bran Oil

* High in antioxidants to fight free radicals and aid in slowing down the effects of aging.

* Considered to be hypoallergenic, making it ideal for clients even with the most sensitive skin.

* Protect collagen and elastin to maintain the suppleness of your skin.

* High in fatty acids, making it very beneficial for mature, delicate and sensitive skin.

* The small molecules enable it to penetrate into the skin without being greasy.
