Maihada is one of the KOSE’s skincare brands which focuses on the power of rice (米). It is said in Japan that ancient people were using water after rinsing rice for skincare. Rice has Ceramide which moisturizes skin and improves moisture retention. Maihada series is designed to give the skin lasting moisture and prevent dryness. As the molecule of beauty ingredients in the products is very tiny, the ingredients reaches the deeper layer of skin.
