NEMOHAMO: Harness the Power Whole Plants For Your Skin

NEMOHAMO: Harness the Power Whole Plants For Your Skin

Every part of a plant, from roots, to leaves, to flowers, play a vital role in nourishing and keeping that plant alive. Each part contains its own highly specialized set of nutrients and valuable properties that work together as a whole.

NEMOHAMO sets itself apart from the rest by using the power stored in the whole plant to create its line of highly effective skincare products. By using low-temperature vacuum extraction to make use of whole plants, they keep the enzymes, vitamins, and minerals of high quality plants fresh and highly bioavailable in their full line of skincare products, designed for all skin types.

Ginseng Benefits For Skin

Japanese and Chinese medicine have long used Panax Ginseng as a food, to help boost energy levels, and support the immune system. While widely known in the Western world as a dietary supplement, it has also been used in Japan for centuries as a skincare solution.

The major active pharmacological component of ginseng is ginsenoside, a powerful, steroid-like saponin unique to the ginseng species. Ginsenoside has been proven to improve skin elasticity and moisturization. With the power to survive and thrive in challenging environments, ginseng is full of energy and rich in antioxidants.


Ginseng Whole Plant Benefits

NEMOHAMO harnesses the full potential of ginseng and ginsenoside by harvesting the entire plant - roots, leaves, stems, and flowers. Using only pesticide-free ginseng, sustainably harvested at their farm in Tsushima Japan, NEMOHAMO uses high concentrations of ginseng in every product.

In fact, NEMOHAMO lotions do not contain even a single drop of water, so you know that every drop will contain nothing but highly concentrated plant material, bursting with vitality. With generous quantities of vital enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants the full power of the entire ginseng plant energizes your skin to behave like young, healthy skin.

How Ginseng Benefits Your Skin

Ginseng works to benefit your skin in numerous ways, including:

  • Increased moisturization: Ginseng has hydrating properties that help your skin retain vital moisture by creating a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. This helps prevent water loss and keeps skin looking plump and supple.
  • Improved skin elasticity: One of Ginseng's many benefits is that it is known to stimulate the production of collagen, a vital protein that is necessary to maintain skin elasticity. As we age, our collagen levels naturally decrease which can lead to sagging skin and wrinkles. Ginseng boosts collagen production, leading to firmer, more resilient skin.
  • Skin brightening: The revitalizing properties of ginseng help to brighten and even out skin tone by stimulating blood circulation, allowing nutrients to reach skin cells more quickly and efficiently. This increased blood flow creates a natural radiance and more vibrant complexion, while also reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
  • Antioxidant protection: Bursting with antioxidants, ginseng works to protect your skin from free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and elastin fibers, leading to premature aging and dull skin. Antioxidants in ginseng help to neutralize free radicals, preventing oxidative stress and protection from environmental pollutants and UV damage.
  • Anti-inflammatory effects: Ginseng possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can calm and soothe irritated or sensitive skin. It helps reduce redness and inflammation, making it beneficial for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin. By incorporating ginseng into skincare routines, individuals with problematic skin can experience a reduction in breakouts and a calmer, more balanced complexion.
  • Farm Fresh Skincare

    NEMOHAMO’s commitment to sustainability and sourcing truly sets the bar for excellence. Every NEMOHAMO product begins with soil preparation. On their organic farm in the Satoyama of Japan, Nemohama aims for transparency starting with every seed.

    Though Satoyama is often translated as “countryside” in English, its true meaning is that of the intersection of human society and the natural world. Satoyama is a place where humans are integrated into the land in a way that promotes the well being of both the natural landscape and humans as well. Surrounded by the sea on one side and mountains on the other, NEMOHAMO’s factory is located in the northern Fukuoka Prefecture. The soil there is rich with minerals, with strata from 25,000 years ago exposed under the gentle sea breezes. It is believed that plants  grown in this high-quality soil are stronger, richer, and more vibrant.

    All Natural Skincare for Every Skin Type

    Every ingredient grown on NEMOHAMO’s farm is grown organically, without the use of chemical fertilizers or genetically modified ingredients. This process yields plants that are rich in natural vitamins and minerals. Their extraction process used to concentrate all of the power in these vibrant plants is repeated multiple times, using low-temperature vacuum extraction to create a skincare line free of petroleum-derived materials, colorants, fragrances, or silicones - only fresh, raw, natural ingredients, perfect for every skin type.

    Whole Plants, Whole Planet

    Reducing harm on the natural world is another firm commitment on the part of Nemohama. All of their manufacturing processes are designed to not emit smoke or wastewater, minimizing their impact on the environment around them. All raw materials that remain after extraction are returned to their farm in Satoyama and used as compost to feed the next fields that are planted.

    Their manufacturing factory uses 100% clean energy, and environmentally friendly materials are used for containers, cosmetic boxes, and any transport boxes. NEMOHAMO sources materials that reduce waste, either by recycling, or by reducing CO2 emissions when incinerated.

    Cruelty Free Skincare

    All NEMOHAMO products consider animal welfare in their development, and are never tested on animals. Additionally, NEMOHAMO makes considerable efforts to use domestic materials and support local production for local consumption. Manufacturing for their products is outsourced to a support facility for people with disabilities, and the natural scent of their products comes from a local source that engages in recycling, agriculture, and forestry in Kyoto City.

    With an emphasis on whole plant, and whole planet skincare, NEMOHAMO products are designed to nourish not only your skin, but the planet as well. Harness the incredible power of ginseng in every bottle, and experience the whole plant difference.
