Travelers’ Treasures / Superior One Gel Essence (Skin care cosmetics)

A skin care cosmetic for attaining luminous skin with an elegant shine, it was jointly developed by Kindai University’s Faculty of Pharmacy and a long-established fishmonger of the Osaka Kuromon Market.

It was a regular female customer who proposed to the fishmonger, “Let’s together create a cosmetic with collagen from soft-shell turtles.” The high quality soft-shell turtles, carefully procured by the fish market, were cultivated with a lot of time and effort by the students of the Shizuoka Prefectural Yaizu Fisheries High School’s Aquaculture Department.

At Kindai University’s Laboratory of Pathological and Biomolecule Analysis, the creation of highly pure “long length collagen” derived from soft-shell turtles was the first in the world to be successful.

This essence cosmetic, as well as featuring “long length collagen,” which with its high water capacity firmly forms a moist film on the skin, also includes natural human-type ceramide from yeast and damask rose oil from Bulgaria.
