Use of Sake in skincare products:
Sake is made from fermented rice that has been polished to remove the bran. It contains a skin lightening acid called the kojic acid which is the by-product of the fermentation process that can rejuvenate skin. "Apply sake with a cotton swb to age spots. This will help fade dark spots" - an ancient beauty secret of Geishas. The Sake also has properties that prevent formation of melanin, the compound responsible for darkened skin.
