Dallas, Texas – May 18, 2016 – Amid Dr. Ohhira’s renowned line of probiotic formulations is a resourceful skincare beauty bar that consistently garners rave reviews from consumers, beauty experts, health practitioners and media alike.

Most recently, the editors of Taste for Life Magazine became fans and honored Dr. Ohhira’s Kampuku Beauty Bar with a 2016 “Women’s Health Essential Award.”

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku Beauty Bar is a natural choice for this award because its regenerative botanicals “deliver topical probiotics that support the skin’s barrier function and overall good health,” said Lynn Tryba, Taste for Life Magazine’s Chief Content Officer and Strategist.

The ‘barrier function’ is an extremely vital aspect of skin health, describing the ability of the skin’s outermost layers to protect it from the external environment.
When the surface skin has a robust barrier function, it appears and feels smooth, soft, and plump (like a baby’s skin). In contrast, damaged surface skin looks dry, rough, dull, and dehydrated.

“A healthy skin barrier is imperative, because if damage occurs it can be very difficult to repair,” said Sonja Sunny Ray, CCN and owner of Minnesota-based “Health By Design”. “Issues like wrinkles, post-acne red marks, dry skin, extra-sensitive skin, and breakouts will keep occurring if the skin’s protective mechanism isn’t doing its job.”

The Kampuku Beauty Bar differs from most cleansers due to its ability to improve the skin’s optimal biology, pH balance and regenerative process. Formulated to nourish skin by using bioavailable ingredients, the secret of the Kampuku Beauty Bar is Dr. Ohhira’s ancient artisanal kettle processing, as well as traditional Japanese botanical fermentation.

This fermented probiotic extract, is derived from the same blend used in Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic dietary supplement. Over a dozen strains of lactic acid bacteria are used to ferment numerous fruits, vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, and sea vegetables. The three-year fermentation process yields highly concentrated nutrients, organic acids, and vitamins produced by the probiotics. These nutrients and pH-balancing components foster your skin’s dermal flora so it can flourish and protect even the most delicate skin.
