BLACK PAINT FACE SOAP is the hassle-free, one-step solution to cleansing your face. No longer will you need a separate make-up remover! This precious combination of plant oils, silk, honey, and superabsorbent charcoal allows both water-soluble and lipid-soluble materials to gently, naturally and completely glide away, leaving the skin fresh and clear of all cosmetics as well as dirt and excess skin oils.
BLACK PAINT treats the fundamental cause of problematic skin: the pores. Like the water at a hot spring spa, its pH is slightly alkaline. This triggers the skin’s own self-cleansing process which pushes dirt out of the pores from within. The need for harsh chemical cleansers, abrasives, artificial surfactants and antiseptic agents is eliminated, and skin regains its natural, healthy glow.
When pores fill with waste, they are forced to stay open so that even more dirt can enter. This often happens when skin has been stripped of its natural moisture barrier by solvent-type cleansers. BLACK PAINT deeply cleans and tightens the pores, but the skin's normal moisture barrier remains intact. This barrier protects skin from external assaults, such as dry air, dirt and damaging UV sunlight, as well as preventing internal moisture from escaping.

These 23 types of organic plant oil contain natural beauty ingredients which gently protect our bare skin after facial wash. We utilized plant oils, such as precious Damask rose oil, wild rose oil and 20 types of organic materials. These are certified by Europe organizations where high environmental awareness is upheld. Moreover, we also blended our national organic tea leaves which are equally organic, too.
On top of that, BLACK PAINT is mixed with several other natural materials such as Japan made Kishu Bichotan Charcoal powder, silk powder, honey, brown sugar from Kaya, Kyoto and many more.

How To Use
Kishu Bichotan Charcoal
One of the main factors of why BLACK PAINT is black in color is because of its White Charcoal component. White Charcoal has been widely used in Japan since thousands of years ago for their teamaking (Chado) ceremony. White charcoal is made from holm oak, a very hard wood used in kilns in the southern Kishu area in Japan. This charcoal, called Kishu Bichotan, takes about 10 – 40 years for the suitably grown branches to be selected for its making.
Kishu Bicotan Charcoal is considered to be the best grade because it is hard and yields a long burn. Due to the hardness of the wood, the charcoal made from such wood produces a high pitch ‘tingling’ sound. Bichotan is also called White Charcoal because it is covered with ash during final processing, leaving whitish ash powder on its surface.
Known as the best quality charcoal for purifying water and air, the variety of benefits of Bichotan charcoal can be found in a number of everyday uses. Whether it is used to absorb chemicals in tap water, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, stimulate healthy soil in the garden, or deflect negative ions in your home, the environmental and chemical-free charcoal is the natural way to boost overall wellness.
Best Manufacturing Method
Unlike most mass-production soap manufacturers, no heat is used in the making of BLACK PAINT FACE SOAP. That's because heat can cause the vitamins and enzymes in the plant oils to deteriorate and lose their nutritional effectiveness. We use the cold process method preferred by traditional soap craftsmen, and allow each soap bar to mature for 6 months. While more care is needed with this method, we believe it is necessary to give your face the quality product it deserves.
