Let me share with you a story. Ichiro Yamamoto is from northern Japan, Hokkaido. Hokkaido is a mountainous land, a place where it’s best suited to raise horses. It is the coldest and driest region of Japan. So here’s the question. How did he discover the source of horse oil and its benefits?

 

Yamamoto Ichiro was the oldest son who lived with his mother in her 70s. Both of them lived together and depend on each other for survival. Their horses in their horse farm were one of the best in Japan. Due to the cold and dry season, it is very common for Yamamoto Ichiro’s mother to face skin problems such as dry skin, darkened skin and pigmentation. In recent years, the Japanese started to enjoy consuming horse meat sashimi. Yamamoto Ichiro’s mother began to sell horse meats to the restaurant for additional income. She began to realize that her fingers, palm and back of the hand became softer and more hydrated ever since she started chopping horse meats. What is going on?? It was actually the oil derived from the horses that nourished her hands. With this bizarre discovery, she informed her son and Ichiro Yamamoto began to work with a dermatologist in Osaka to study deeper about horse oil.

 

Firstly, they invented a unique extraction method, where they drop the humidity level lower than the body temperature and extracted the oil carefully without affecting the fatty acid composition from the horses. Next, they purified and removed the odor from the horses repeatedly to ensure that the horse oil is free of odor and bacteria. Finally, they added natural ingredients to cater to customers with different skin problems. The products produced are 100% free of preservatives and chemicals.

 

Ichiro Yamamoto is the founder of Gokujo Bahyu. This is how the story of Gokujo Bahyu started. Isn’t it amazing? If you are keen to know more, do like us on Facebook page and look forward to the next entry.

让我跟你们分享一个故事。山本一朗是北海道人。北海道位于日本北部,那里山势雄伟,是最好的传统养马区,气候则寒冷干燥,是日本最干燥的地区。那他是怎么发现马油的来源与好处呢?

 

山本一朗是长子,和七旬老母相依为命。他们拥有一个马场,生产一些日本最好的马匹。寒冷干燥的气候使山本老太太经常被皮肤干燥,紧绷和色斑等问题所困扰。日本人近年爱吃马肉刺身,山本老太太于是把马肉切块卖给食肆。很奇怪的是,她发现自从她切马肉以来,她的手指,手掌和手背的皮肤出现明显变化---变得柔软湿润。这是怎么一回事呢?原来马肉流淌出来的油份无意中滋养了她的双手。有了这个突破的发现后,山本一朗和在大阪当皮肤科医生的发小井岛哲雄一起研究马油的生产。

 

首先,他们发明了一种独特的提取方法,把湿度降到比人体温度为低,细心的把马油取出而不损害有效的脂肪酸成分,接着反复净化除臭,以确保马油无菌无臭,最后加入针对不同皮肤问题的天然成分,产品完全没有添加防腐剂和化学药物。

 

山本一朗就是极上马油的创始人。这就是极上马油的诞生。很奇妙吧?想知道更多的话,请期待下一次的分享。
