Shu Uemura is another product line I was introduced to while working at a salon/spa, in the Atlanta area. We just carried The Art of Hair product line, but the clients that used it, Loved it! I also heard that the makeup line and the brushes were awesome from some estheticians/makeup artists that I worked with. So I wanted to research this line, to see what differentiated it from other beauty product lines. Was there a Special Ingredient?

Alittle about Mr. SHU UEMURA

The artist, SHU UEMURA set forth to revolutionize the world of make-up in 1958. Since then, he has striven to create new standards of beauty. The perfect balance of nature, art and science constitutes the unique world of Shu Uemura. A half-century since the debut of the brand in Tokyo, his revolutionary vision continues to guide his quest toward ultimate beauty through the art of hair.

Now, while looking over the website, I saw that SHU UEMURA had incorporated into the makeup, skin and hair product lines deep seawater. Deep seawater originates in the polar regions of the globe, cold, dense, glacial water gradually sinks deep into underwater currents circulating near the ocean floor. Over a period of 2,000 years, far removed from sunlight and secluded from bacteria or pollutants, this deep seawater remains pure and rich in minerals.

The following are a list of benefits this water provides:

Calcium
The most prevalent mineral in the human body. it is especially known for its indispensible role in the process of the bone mineralization.

Benefits to the skin:
– strengthens skin barrier function
– efficient cell differentiation
– enhanced collagen synthesis

Magnesium
It appears in the body mainly in the form of salt. magnesium’s participation is fundamental to metabolism, helping to synthesize proteins and maintain overall good health of the body.

Benefits to the skin:
– efficient cell turnover
– synthesize keratin
– prevent oxidation of skin
– energize skin

Sodium
Sodium is important for neural communications and cell’s health maintenance.

Benefits to the skin:
– maintain ideal water flow in the skin
– keep good intercellular pH

Potassium
Potassium ions are important in neuron function, and in influencing osmotic balance between cells and the interstitial fluid.

Benefits to the skin
– maintain ideal water flow in the skin
– keep cell membrane healthy

I love the whole Beauty, Nature and Science thing!!! SHU UEMURA also has a Tokyo Eyelash Bar that they launched this year. You can buy regular and designer lashes there!! Go check the website for all their product lines and information! http://www.shuuemura-usa.com/index.aspx
