Organic Adzuki Bean ScrubAdzuki beans (also known as aduki or azuki beans) have been used in Japanese skin care regimens for centuries to cleanse and exfoliate the skin and to rejuvenate and brighten the complexion.

When crushed into a powder, these exfoliating micrograins gently buff away dull, dry, flaky skin without damaging the surface of the skin. This leaves you with a soft, smooth texture and a radiant glow.

Adzuki beans contain a natural foaming agent called saponin that helps cleanse pores by removing dirt and dead skin cells, drawing out impurities and promoting circulation. Products with adzuki beans are great for those prone to acne and blackheads.

Customer Testimonials About Adzuki Bean Products

"For my extremely dry yet acne prone skin, I seem to have settled on the Adzuki bean soap which is like a miracle in a bar!!! For my face, I use the Whipped Squalane moisturizer which doesn't clog my pores (another miracle). My dry lips love your lip balm. I am trying even more items this month. I am now a customer for life!" Elisabeth, Vermont

 

"I am loving the adzuki bean micrograin a TON. I really love a good exfoliant but often find them too harsh, especially in harsh NY winters. This one I use a few times a week either mixed with the carrot soap and water or straight honey and a bit of water. It shrinks my pores and leaves very smooth looking skin." Katie, New York
