If this harsh Canadian winter is dragging you (and your face) down, check out
some Japanese “secret skin-care ingredients” that will have you bouncing back and glowing. From binchotan white charcoal to willowherb and sake, you can add some of these potent ingredients to every step of your skin-care regime. Before all the hype of Asian “super ingredients” surfaced in skin care, Boscia was already a leader in botanical science. They are long-time champions of keeping things natural and their products are free of preservatives, artificial fragrances and colours, gluten, and ethanol alcohol. They took out the bad and added more of the good stuff. Like sake. Cheers to that!
