In the Chinese herbal medicine,
Haskap is known as the ‘gold and silver flower’ (for flowers and buds),
and also as the ‘winter endurance’ (for leaves and stems).
In both “Head Spa” and ” Head Hydrotherapy” of Ankh’s original “Haskap Beauty”,
you can receive a scalp care using Haskap extract of Hokkaido.
Haskap (honeysuckle) has excellent anti-oxidation and anti-glycation power
that rejuvenates your scalp and makes your hair and skin look beautiful♪
It is Obara Komina, Total Balance Beauty Planner.
Today, I will give you more details about Haskap usage in the beauty
menu in which I am involved with regard to its planning and development.
First of all, Haskap is basically a deciduous shrub belonging to the Honeysuckle family.
It is called in Japanese “Kurominougisukagura”.
The name “Haskap” comes from the Ainu word “Hashikapu”
(a lot of things on branches), but this seems not to be a proper noun.
Haskap shrub has a thin epidermis and bears purple elongated fruits
which are richer in nutrients such as anthocyanins than blueberries.
Originally from Hokkaido, Haskap has long been known as the “fruit of longevity”.
Outside Japan, it grows naturally in Sakhalin island and Siberia,
but in other countries like Canada, it is booming with same Hokkaido’s name “Hascap”.
In addition to anthocyanins that have antioxidant properties,
Haskap contains various nutrients such as vitamin C, E, iron, calcium, and carotene.
Vitamin C, which has particular anti-aging effects,
boasts the amount of 50mg in 100g of the fruit.
It has also become clear that Haskap has an anti-glycation effect
which has recently been showed.
For this reason, Haskap is often used in lots of whitening cosmetics
(as LONICERA CAERULEA fruit juice) due to its high whitening effect.
However, because it is used in herbal medicine for its effect of suppressing
eczema from all body parts above the neck, it will also play a role in normalizing
the stratum corneum layer of the scalp and its barrier film (preventing dandruff and itching).
Though, it is necessary to be carefull as its usage on the stratum corneum
may accelerate grey hair appearance.
Besides, both the extract and the tonic used in our beauty menu
also contain extract of Hokkaido’s wasabi to foster hair grouth,
marine placenta extract with plenty of collagen
and hyaluronic acid to prepare the skin barrier film (^^) /
Haskap beauty: Components and characteristics
Haskap is recommended for :
Those who have sensitive skin

What to do?
Check out the scalp to find the cause and get back the beauty of your hair
Get your scalp magnified by 200 times with microscope to firmly check its current state.
The state of the scalp also shows the condition of the body.
At Ankh, we use the theory of Oriental medicine to determine
the cause of hair and skin problems and then use the appropriate treatment.
The power of Hascap extract and other plants is fully used to take care
of the autonomic nervous system, the blood flow,
and the lymphatic system to promote good flow and balance.
The organism’s balance
If you try to listen to your body’s voice, you will notice a lot (* ^^ *)
Well, now it’s time to go into the beauty treatment,
but for those who want to prioritize their body balance, Haskap Beauty Head
