In 2011, Minamisoma, a small city in Fukushima prefecture in northern Japan was hit by the Tohoku earthquake. Most of its residents were evacuated and over five years later, in 2016, the residents were allowed to move back. In place of their ruined rice crops, the locals began growing crops of rapeseed instead. Rapeseed plants remove cesium from the soil and their seeds are turned into oil which is radiation free and safe to use. Fukushima rapeseed oil is used in this shower oil to help skin feel softened and moisturised. Lemon juice, bergamot and olibanum oils give a warm, sunny citrus scent while kinako powder, a flour made from roasted soy beans leaves skin smelling sweet.
Shower oils provide a mild cleanse, perfect for gentle types, or can be used as the last step in your routine to give skin a moisturising boost. Simply stroke over the body and rinse away for soft and strokable skin.
