A great advantage of using Japanese whitening products is that their oils can clean and nourish the skin. Aside from these benefits, these cleansing oils are very suitable for washing the face and removing makeup without  drying the skin and ridding its natural oils. The popularity of these cleansing oils was extremely common in Japan before it was popularized in other countries. Shu Uemura was the first cleansing oil that was used.

Most Japanese whitening products use rice bran considered as a natural ingredient that shields the skin from  environmental damages and pollution.

      Thanks. I've learnt a lot here. Infact, might get myself some Rose Water..... but people need to check the ingredients of these whitening products as they can damage skin.
