Purifying the skin through the virtues of sugar

Distributed by the Japanese company Kitanotatsujin, "Minna no Hadajuntou (Clear)" is a cosmetic product made primarily from Hokkaido sugar beets.

The beet particles are spherically adjusted one by one via processing technologies and each particle is coated with vegetable oils of natural origin to minimise skin irritation.

In terms of its treatment scope, this product is described as a skin-friendly moisturising scrub developed to protect the skin from the emergence of spots. The purpose of it is not to remove dirt or keratin, but rather to strengthen the skin barrier and thus create a surface that is more resistant to complications.

No preservatives, synthetic fragrances, or dyes are used in the manufacture of the scrub. Upon analysis, the experts observed that in addition to gently cleansing the skin and strengthening the skin barrier, what further stands out about this product is that it combines simplicity, naturalness, effectiveness and ingenuity.

The incorporated ingredients all tested as being natural according to the experts, and the developed technology is able to harness the osmotic strength of sugar and its superior moisture retention capacity.

As evidenced in the scientific report, this particular technology, which coats each sugar particle with oils of plant origin, contributes to the maintenance of a water/sebum balance that is essential for healthy skin.

All of these attributes were duly factored into the Monde Selection experts’ decision to award “Minna no Hadajuntou (Clear)” the Grand Gold as well as the nomination for the Jury Prize.

"Each year, one product per category is awarded the Prize of the Jury as a token of excellence in know-how and quality. In order to qualify, the product must be unanimously selected as a “coup de cœur” by the jury members. The winner of the Prize of the Jury is then selected from a group of just 5 nominees, which makes this award an even greater honour for the recipient."
