Why are probiotics good for the skin?
Damaging environmental factors and harsh skincare regimes can destroy the healthy bacteria found naturally in and on the skin, allowing irritation, inflammation and dehydration to occur. This innovative blend of pre- and probiotics maintain and strengthen the skin by deterring the growth of harmful bacteria, stimulating its innate immune system and limiting production of free radicals, leaving skin soothed, hydrated and supple.
About Essential Formulas
EFI President and CEO Michael Schoor learned about Dr. Ohhira's probiotic formula while traveling in Malaysia in 1997. While visiting Kuala Lumpur, Michael experienced serious digestive discomfort after eating at a local fast-food restaurant. Finding himself without his usual remedy from home, he consulted a local doctor who recommended a product from Japan known as OM-X.
The probiotic capsules helped immediately and substantially. In fact, the product worked more effectively than anything Michael had used before. He noticed that he felt better faster, and didn't have any negative side effects. Michael was so impressed by the results that he set out to learn all he could about the little brown capsules that had stopped his digestive discomfort in its tracks. His search ultimately led him to Japan where he met the formulator of the mysterious capsules, Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira, one of Japan's leading microbiologists.
Dr. Ohhira educated Michael about the digestive health formula. Supported by over twenty university-based scientific studies, the capsules contained not only probiotics, but also prebiotics (substances that nourish probiotics) and organic acids that promote a healthy digestive tract pH. No wonder Dr. Ohhira's formula was so helpful; it was a lot more than just a probiotic supplement. Michael was determined to share it with American consumers.
Late in 1999, Dr. Ohhira and Michael reached an agreement that established Michael's soon-to-be-formed new company as the sole distributor of Dr. Ohhira's probiotic products and dietary supplements in North America and elsewhere. They decided on "Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics 12 PLUS" (now simply called "Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics") as the American name for the flagship product. Essential Formulas Incorporated (EFI) was established in 2000 to bring Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics to the United States. Thus, the adventure began.
Since then, EFI has expanded its product line. In addition to Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics, customers also enjoy the immune system support of Propolis PLUS; a vegan certified fish oil alternative called Essential Living Oils; and a growing line of probiotic skin care products. EFI will continue to introduce and release additional products from Dr. Ohhira and others in the future.
Founded by Michael, William, and Jo Len Schoor in 2000, EFI is a family-owned and operated business. Michael is president and CEO, William is executive vice president, and Jo Len is responsible for EFI's public outreach programs. Late in 2000, Marty Schoor joined the company to oversee operations at the corporate office. Before its tenth anniversary in 2010, EFI had grown to twelve full-time employees and scores of commissioned reps/brokers working throughout the United States and Canada.
EFI pledges to provide the highest quality natural supplements available and the finest customer care. The Schoor family stands behind this pledge! In addition to quality products and exceptional customer service, EFI strives to lead the industry in providing customer education regarding product content, use, and efficacy.
What ingredients at in the Magoroku Skin Lotion?
Magoroku Skin Lotion contains botanical extracts (peach leaf, loquat leaf, and Aloe vera); Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic extract; octyldodecanol (from coconut oil); stearyl glycyrrhetinate (natural licorice extract); squalene- used only to extract other ingredients used in product and Japanese Magoroku (equine oil).
The probiotic extract begins with hand-harvested raw botanical ingredients: Apricot; Wild Vine; Chinese Matrimony; Mulberry; Sea Tangle; Chinese Cabbage; Oleaster; Plum; Wild Strawberry; Loquat; Mugwort; Brown Seaweed; Shiitake Mushroom; Chinese Bayberry.
These herbals are carefully blended and fermented with the unique E. faecalis TH10 lactic acid bacteria (LAB)—one of the strongest LAB strains available today. The final extract contains the LAB, its nutritious culture medium, and naturally occurring organic acids, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. This skin care formula is metabolized in highly prized Magoroku oil, which is very similar to the skins own natural oils and allows for deep absorption of the probiotic properties.
How often should I use Magoroku Skin Lotion?
Suitable for daily use and appropriate for both body and face, this lotion moisturizes and nourishes while soothing dry, irritated skin. Magoroku Skin Lotion can also be used therapeutically when skin conditions arise.
Is Magoroku Lotion safe for sensitive skin?
This all-natural, botanical, probiotic moisturizer is ideal for sensitive skin but is suitable for all skin types and is gentle enough for even a newborn’s delicate skin. Reactions to Dr. Ohhira’s products are very rare, but if a reaction occurs, cease use and consult your physician.
Is the product safe to use if I am allergic to one of the botanicals in the probiotic extract?
Magoroku Skin Lotion contains no known allergens and is guaranteed free of artificial colors, fragrances, stabilizers, deodorants, preservatives, chemicals, and titanium oxide. During the three-year fermentation process the ingredients in the probiotic extract are altered and will have no resemblance to the original allergen. Due to this modification, it is unlikely that the final product will cause an allergic reaction. But, if you are concerned about a reaction, test the lotion under the guidance of your physician.
