Introduction of Ingredients Part 1: Soybean Extract
Various ingredients can be found in Suzuki Herb Laboratory’s Pineapple Soy Milk Series. We want to elaborately explain where each ingredient derives from and what significant effects they have on the skin.
In this article, we would like to introduce something called the soybean (seed) extract.
Where are soybeans cultivated? Roughly 300 million metric tons of soybeans are produced around the world. Of this amount, over 80% are provided by the United States, Brazil, and Argentina.
Moreover, 90% of the soybeans cultivated in the world are used to extract oil or to produce soybean meals after oil extraction.
The soybean extract found in cosmetics by Suzuki Herb Laboratory is made using 3 types of soybeans cultivated in Japan. The country’s soybeans are well-known for their high quality and are mostly used for food.
