Frequently asked questions about Dead Skin Peeling Gel
■Questions about usage
1. Why do substances flake off? Are they really dead skin cells from the face?
Because the product reacts to proteins such as dead skin cells, sebum and perspiration. Dead skin cells really do flake off. Please try the product twice on the same spot for confirmation.
2. Why does the skin become white immediately after the dead skin cells flake off while massaging? The skin color goes back to normal after a while...
The skin becomes cleaner and smoother with a finer texture, and appears brighter (whiter), reflecting light, etc.
3. I heard it is best to use it two or three times a week. Shouldn’t it be used every day?
It depends on the condition of the skin and the season, but two to three times a week would be better.
4. Are there any harmful effects on the skin if used continuously for about 10 years?
Our older products are more than 10 years old since their launch, but there are no reports of harmful effects.
5. When using the product on the face, how much should be used for one wash?
For the face, two to three pumps (approx. 3 g) would be the standard amount.
6. Doesn't the product over-strip the skin?
No, because the flaky substances cling to and remove only the already-loosened dead skin cells.
■Questions about the design
1. How is it different from chemical peeling?
Chemical peeling physically dissolves dead skin cells using ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acid or glycolic acid, but our peeling gel works by producing flaky substances when massaged that remove loose dead skin cells, so it is gentle to the skin.
2. There are many different peeling gels. Do the ingredients differ depending on the distributor?
Each distributor has its own formula with varying ingredients.
3. Are there some ingredients that should not be added?
Since the peeling gel itself reacts to proteins, proteins (amino acids) should not be added.
4. Can it be colored?
It can be colored using both artificial and natural pigments. However, natural colorings, since they are natural, can fade. Fading of natural colorings accelerates in places with high temperature and light, so storage must be chosen with care.
■Questions regarding packaging material
1. Are there suitable/unsuitable containers?
Pump bottles are suitable. For tubes, those that are multi-layered with a not-too-wide opening are suitable. The containers chosen by our customers are tested for adequacy before commercialization.
1. We heard this gel should be rinsed away. Can I do it as normal in the bathroom sink? Won’t it clog the drain or harm the environment?
It is possible that the product may cause the drain to clog, so we recommend using tissues or cotton pads to lightly brush away the flakes on the face before rinsing your face.
2. What is the approximate sale price of the product?
It depends on the container volume and formula, but the approximate price is between 1,500 and 6,000 yen, sold at drugstores, variety stores, cosmetics shops or salons, through mail order, etc.
