This is my pleasure!

My name is Yukari Shoubuke, I’m an acupuncturist as well as the representative of Murasaki Koubou.

I was troubled by atopic skin since childhood and to alleviate this condition I have always sought mild or low-stimulation treatment and natural cosmetics.
Fortunately, one day in my hometown of Iwate, I discovered Murasaki, the plant which is a key ingredient of herbal medicine. My dream to make soap made with the therapeutic power of Murasaki led me to launch a company which could produce organic Murasaki from contract firmers. This eventually led to manufacturing soap with pure and genuine natural ingredients, which is this Murasaki Koubou Soap.
The pure freshness upon washing gives your soul complete happiness.
For everyone with skin sensitivity and including those who seek additive-free soap, I recommend you experience Murasaki Koubou Soap.

about Murasaki Koubou Soap

Original manufacturing method

The manufacturing method of purple incense soap is neither "cold process" nor "saponification salting out", nor is it an extension of "frame kneading".
The process of dissolving purple root components in rapeseed oil made by unrefined pressing method (corporate secret), and adding purple root powder to caustic soda aqueous solution, shikonins and moisturizing ingredients that are effective for aging care. It is a unique manufacturing method in which glycerin, which is a substance, is thoroughly extracted and completely enclosed in soap without removing anything. Since it does not contain antioxidants or preservatives, it has an expiration date of only 6 months from the time of manufacture.
After mixing oil and caustic soda and aging for one month, it can only be sold.

②Hold the soap in your hand and apply it by rubbing it on the skin of the entire head (carefully where there is a lot of white hair). Pour hot water over the hair, soak the hair in water, and then wash the skin in a circular motion with the hair. Rinse well. The first hair wash is rough and cleans the surface of the skin.

③Wash the skin the second time as well as the first time, and for long hair, wash the hair with the foam from top to bottom.

About Sakurakou Cream

Characteristics of Sakurakou Cream

It is a self-confident work that was born by repeating making and trying many times until it was convinced over 4 years, sticking to the combination of crude drugs and the effect on the skin. It moisturizes the skin and acts on slight rough skin and blemishes to restore a healthy condition. It has excellent moisturizing properties and keeps the moist feeling for a long time.
We also value cell safety and do not contain chemical compounds such as preservatives, antioxidants, colorants, artificial fragrances, and synthetic surfactants (emulsifiers). All made of edible natural ingredients. It doesn't matter where I apply it to my atopic dermatitis, and even the heels of my feet, which were cracked and bleeding in the worst case, have become pale and soft.
It was also a big problem that the material of the container would run into the problem of garbage and resources no matter what it was used, but we decided to use a container that is lighter in weight by reducing the amount of plastic used by 50% or more compared to the conventional one. We are also considering the transportation environment by being able to handle mail services. I would like to continue to consider better containers and reuse.

・Gold and honeysuckle: Moisturizing effect, barrier improving effect, keratin plug formation inhibitory effect
