This exclusive formula created by award-winning microbiologist Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira, melds probiotic and prebiotic nutrients to help support the balanced ecology necessary for healthy skin. Honored with the ‘Best of Beauty’ Award by Better Nutrition Magazine, Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku Beauty Bar promotes and maintains supple, radiant-looking skin… naturally!

Q. Why are probiotics good for the skin?
A. Environmental factors and harsh skincare regimens can affect the healthy bacteria found naturally in and on the skin, which then influences skin hydration and sensitivity. The innovative blend of pre- and probiotics help maintain and strengthen the skin by promoting a healthy flora balance, supporting healthy immune system activity and providing antioxidant support, leaving the skin clean, hydrated and supple.

Q. What ingredients are in the Kampuku Beauty Bar?
A. The main ingredient is a plant-based cleanser combined with a unique probiotic herbal extract, Japanese mountain spring water, and natural caramel color.

The probiotic extract begins with hand-harvested raw botanical ingredients:
Apricot; Wild Vine; Chinese Matrimony; Mulberry; Sea Tangle; Chinese Cabbage; Oleaster; Plum; Wild Strawberry; Loquat; Mugwort; Brown Seaweed; Shiitake Mushroom; Chinese Bayberry

These herbals are carefully blended and fermented with our unique E. faecalis TH10 lactic acid bacteria (LAB)—one of the strongest LAB strains available today. The final extract contains the LAB, its nutritious culture medium, and naturally occurring organic acids, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins.

Q. How often should I use the Kampuku Beauty Bar?
A. Suitable for daily use and appropriate for both body and face, The Kampuku Beauty Bar offers natural deodorant benefits while leaving the skin clean and moisturized. Due to a traditional Japanese method that produces vegetable glycerin, quality fats, and oils and allows these moisturizing substances to evenly dissolve into the skin, the Kampuku Beauty Bar is ideal for shaving the face, legs and other delicate areas while helping to reduce painful razor-rash.

Q. Is the beauty bar safe for sensitive skin?
A. The all-natural, plant-based Kampuku Beauty Bar is gentle enough for use on even a newborn’s delicate skin. Reactions to Dr. Ohhira’s products are extremely rare, but if one does occur, cease using the product immediately and consult your physician.

Q. I am allergic to one of the botanicals in the probiotic extract. Is this product safe to use?
A. Our Kampuku Beauty Bar contains no known allergens and is guaranteed free of artificial colors, fragrances, stabilizers, deodorants, preservatives, chemicals, and titanium oxide. During the three-year fermentation process ingredients in the probiotic extract morph into a substance that has no similarity to the original allergen. But if you are concerned about a reaction, test the beauty bar under the guidance of your physician.

A Synergistic Team:

Probiotic Kampuku Beauty Bar AND Probiotic Magoroku Skin Lotion

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku Beauty Bar is most effective when used with our other probiotic products, especially the Magoroku Skin Lotion. Comprised of probiotic extracts from fourteen wild plants, soothing Aloe vera, peach leaf, and loquat leaf extracts, the herbals in this lotion are metabolized in Japanese Magoroku (equine oil), which is very similar to the skin’s own natural oils and allows for deep absorption of the probiotic properties.
