ROOT STEM BRANCH
RSB is a unique skin care line that is based on classical Japanese food therapies with traditional preparations. Our skin care line is hand-crafted in small batches with care and respect. These living nutrient formulas are designed to help support the vibrant communication between internal and external terrain. One unique aspect to our skin care is that these formulas can be applied to all skin types and adapt to individual needs. It is created with the most sensitive skin in mind, including environmental and autoimmune conditions.
Given that there are no preservatives, solvents, coloring, binders, or chemicals added to our body care, the challenge to maintain all living nutrients and their life giving properties is resolved using time-tested traditional preparations. These preparations allow the plants to express themselves fully (full spectrum), and provide the right conditions for the plants to digest and assimilate, creating amazing new nutrition through fermentation.
Simple ingredients dance with complexity to return to simple skin.
Understand - your skin is a living canvas which expresses your daily needs. With Japanese theory, we learn to acknowledge these daily needs through awareness and taking a moment for self care.
