Okay. So, now you sent me on a hunt. I only knew the name, "Cure Natural Aqua Gel," and not the Brand (everything else on the bottle is in Japanese) except I did find Toyolife.co.jp on the bottle so on there site I found this info:
There is no need to use expensive lotions,
serums or emulsions if they do not penetrate well into the skin.
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ gently removes the dried surface of rough skin.
It is a very simple product as approximately 91% of ‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ is water.
It is fragrance free. Has no artificial colors or preservatives
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ is very gentle on the skin. In fact,
it uses a protective solution that is applied by ophthalmologists for eye surgery.
The mechanism of ‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’:
The purpose of using a conditioner and treatment is to
provide needed moisture for your hair.
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ focuses on the effects of ingredients that bind with protein (hair).
All you need to do is rinse the skin gently.
There is no need to apply pressure to your skin when applying Cure.
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ only works on the skin and not on other surfaces such
as glass or ceramic dishes.
And, dead skin cells will no longer come off if you use it twice on the same skin area.
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ gently removes unwanted dead skin
cells unlike chemical peels which use strong acids to dissolve protein.
- About the specific ingredient in question:
"DICOCODIMONIUM CHLORIDE・STEARTRIMONIUM BROMIDE:
It is to respond to old deadskin. Commonly used for conditioner."
So, I think maybe it's not absorbed? Any opinion on this info? I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts.
