RICE & ROOT Enzyme Powder – Face Refiner

(50 customer reviews)


SKU: RICE&ROOTEnzymePowder Category: Tags: ,


The inspiration which led to the creation of CHIKYU’s RICE & ROOT Enzyme Powder was my beautiful mother who always took great pride when caring for her skin. Throughout the years, I can recall countless times when my mother was complimented on her flawless complexion, followed by the inevitable question as to how she achieved and maintained her porcelain skin. Each time she would humbly respond with one word “rice.” While she kept her response limited, she and I both knew there was more to her regime than simply rice. RICE & ROOT Enzyme Powder was created by using traditional ingredients used for generations by my Japanese ancestors along with additional nutrient rich botanicals to achieve healthy radiant skin!

♦️RICE & ROOT is effective and gentle enough for all skin types.

🔷Liquid activated enzyme powder consisting of Rice Bran, Enzymes, Peptides, skin brightening and conditioning botanicals to achieve healthy radiant skin.

🔷 May be activated with water, or with CHIKYU’s Facial Cleansing Oil or any of CHIKYU’s Facial Cleansers.

🔷Contains traditional Japanese ingredients consisting of Rice Bran and Roots, used for generations to harmonize and brighten dull complexions.

🔷Gently exfoliates increasing collagen production while delivering alpha hydroxy acids and antioxidants to boost results and leave skin extremely soft and luminous.

Available Sizes: 4oz (Full Size) –  4oz REFILL Rice Paper bag – 1oz (Trial/Travel Size)

Directions for Use: Wet face and dispense a small amount of RICE & ROOT into palm and add either water, or CHIKYU”s Facial Cleansing Oil, or any of CHIKYU’s Facial Cleansers to create paste.

In addition, Grape Root astringent properties are known for tightening and toning skin tissues and maintaining skin elasticity.

– Pineapple Extract contains the fruit enzyme Bromelian which is effective in exfoliating dead cells on the surface of the skin and also hydrolyze proteins.

– Rice Bran Powder is rich in Phytosterols including Gamma-Oryzanol and Ferulic Acid and when combined with Vitamin C, they become a potent antioxidant for cell membranes. Moreover, Ferulic Acid is known to suppress melanin generation in the skin layers, the pigment structure in the skin that protects the skin against excess sun exposure.

– Royal Jelly contains over 100 nutrients not to mention high amounts of 10-Hydroxy-2-Decenoic Acid (10-HDA) which is a special active substance which exists only in royal jelly and is known for its exceptional anti-oxidative and skin whitening effects. Moreover, it contains a rare type of structural protein, a collagen-like substance and is an excellent source of amino acids

– Rosehip contains high amounts of Vitamin A, C and E and is known to be active in cell regeneration and for its ability to improve skin conditions from uneven pigmentation, dark spots and UV damage.

– Sea Buckthorn is rich in Vitamin A (carotene and carotenoids), Vitamin C and flavonoids, minerals and nutrients and high in both Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids which makes them all exceptionally nourishing for the skin.

– Silk Peptides is made up of 100% fibroin which contains 18 kinds of amino acids and trace elements to help maintain moisture levels in the skin and prevent dryness. In addition, the crystalline structure of the peptides is said to reflect UV radiation and has anti-bacterial properties.

– Soapwort has been used by American Indians as a soap substitute due to its Mucilaginous juice when mixed with water. It is the element saponin that imparts the foaming and cleansing properties.

– Unshiu is a small seedless member of the citrus family used in Japan to brighten, highlight, moisturize and revitalize dull complexions keeping skin looking fresh and uniformly smooth.

– Yucca Root is loaded with Vitamins A, B and C, as well as Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Iron and saponins which act as a natural foaming agent and provide antioxidant properties. In addition, it is similar to Soapwort in that it contains saponin which partially acts as a natural foaming agent.

  1. Angela W

    I absolutely adore everything I try from Chikyu, so I took a chance and purchased the full size and I’m glad I did. I love this product! I have dry skin, but this enzyme scrub is actually gentle on it and I’m able to use it daily. It leaves my face clean, but not stripped of moisture. My skin is now glowy, more refined and best of all, I haven’t broken out from it. It’s also easy to use and wash off. Again, I love everything I’ve tried from Chikyu and will continue to purchase her products! Thank you! 🙂

  2. Elizabeth Dedge

    With winter fastly approaching I find myself using more and more moisturizers and between that and my job it becomes overload for my skin. I use this rice enzyme twice a week not only does it help my skin stay clear but it also improved the overall texture. It looks as if this will be my first winter with healthy radiant skin. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! 🙂

  3. She She

    Your products is amazing! I wanted to try them out before leaving a review but this leaves my face so smooth and ready for my serums! Thank you and happy new year.

  4. Julie Hawkins

    I love so many of the products I have had the pleasure of using from Chikyu over the last two years. This enzyme powder is hands down my can’t live without product. I received a sample from Lynn who is always so generous and gracious in that department and soon reordered the full size. I have maturing combination skin and use this product daily with my face wash. The enzyme powder gently exfoliates my skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Thank you, thank you for another wonderful product!

  5. Laura Kerns

    The face scrub is great! It brightens my skin. I’ve been using it for a few days and my painful acne is become less painful after each use. This seller is amazing! They even included a surprise sample and a sweet handwritten card! Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

    This is what I’ve been looking for. Very nice product ! Rice Bran and Azuki Beans power is traditional face scrub in Japan. I remember my grandmother always use “Nuka”(Rice Bran) sache when she wash her face (^_^) Thank you for the gift – beautiful packaging!

  12. Jessica Krznar

    Another great product. I love the packaging! Looks great in my bathroom(which is all black and white) love the little wooden spoon and the natural authentic amazing ingredients. The fine grain is gentle on my crazy reactive skin and leaves my face feeling deeply cleansed and happy! I also used this on the chicken skin on the back of my arms and it had helped tremendously! I am very happy with this product!

  13. Turesa

    I mixed this scrub with a cleanser I purchased from this shop. It created a kind of paste that I used to scrub my skin. It left my looking looking bright and new.

  14. gold925pearl

    I achieve baby soft skin with each use, good stuff

  15. eecram

    I like how it makes my skin feel afterwards. At first use I scrub a little too hard but if you gently going circles it works great.

  16. awesomecooluk

    THE BEST exfoliator EVER. I order from Chikyu all the time, and she sent me a free sample of this face scrub. I’m so happy she did, because it’s #1 in my book. I thought all exfoliators were basically the same, but they’re not.

  17. Kristen

  26. Michelle

    This face scrub was just what I was looking for! Sometimes I need something a little more than just a face wash to liven my skin up, and the natural ingredients in this don’t feel overly harsh on my skin .

  27. Laurie

    Makes ur face feel new again ❤️

  28. Elise

    This came right on time 👍 and I can’t wait to try it.

  29. Ashley

    This is wonderful! My skin was so unbelievably soft after using this. Definitely was missing a good exfoliant in my skin care routine. Definitely a permanent addition to my routine. Thanks for the samples too!! 🙂

  30. Jennifer

    I really liked it. I accidentally spilled half of it when I opened it:( But I used the rest and really liked it. I like the smell. But I enjoy the smell of rice. I used it with cleansing oil.

  31. Yvonne

    I will be a return customer this exfoliate is so good you can’t feel the harshness of it all but after you can tell it did something especially with my large pores .Thank you

  32. Beth

    I love a good face scrub and fell in love with Chikyu’s Vitamin C face polish. I tried this instead this once and I’m glad I did but personally I love the Vit C scrub more. I will say, this does work very well and I’ve noticed my face seems much softer since I started using this. Definitely, a noticeable difference in the way my skin feels and even looks. I would definitely recommend trying this product!!

  33. Cristina

    I received my item quickly, and that was really cool. However, the real surprise came when I used this product. I have very sensitive skin, and wasn’t sure what to expect.. BUT I’m so happy! this didn’t irritate my skin, it didn’t dry it out either. My skin felt supple, and so so soft. Glad I found a great product to recommend to friends and family.

  34. Elizabeth

    My second time ordering this product. It’s fantastic.

  35. AICMW

    My absolute favorite. So effective.

  36. ReeRee

    I have yet to use this..but I haven’t tried anything from this shop that I don’t like. Look forward to trying it out!

  37. sweettennis

    I like that this is a new product for me, personally I don’t always know if I’m using too much but it feels great

  38. Katrina

    Amazing product! I would recommend to anyone with any kind of facial needs. It’s perfectly balanced and it cleansed my face leaving nothing but my beautiful skin. It adds a heightened level of skin care. Buffs out micro imperfections. A must have for any skin care regime. I love love love my new facial refiner!!

  39. Amy

    very nice. I was a little wary ordering skincare on Etsy, but I like this product a lot. Got a couple samples that I’m looking forward to trying too. I would purchase from this seller again! Very much cares about her business, and it shows in everything from the product to the packaging details.

  40. kris

    love the packaging! Thank you so much and the samples where amazing! Definitely would buy again !!!

  41. shannon

    Love this product so far! It came on time and packaged thoughtfully. Even came with some complimentary goodies. The scrub leaves my skin feeling smooth and incredible. Definitely recommend!

  42. Alexandria

    So far I really like it! I had a few red spots and raised bumps on my face when I first tried it. I mixed it with the cleanser for oily skin as recommended by the shop and it lathered up really well. I also applied toner and the moisturizer for blemishes skin. My face felt tighter (but wasn’t dried out) and my red bumps flattened out about 30 minutes later.

  43. charmaigne48

    The best face refiner out there!

  44. kristina

    Wow this stuff is amazing, after 2 only washes my skin feels so soft and my pores are visibly smaller!!! I will be purchasing again.

  45. Chessy

    Great stuff. Makes my face feel soft, smooth, and refreshed. Also came with samples, which was very thoughtful and generous of the maker. She also wrote me a kind note with my name. Very sweet.

  46. Amy

    I love that this exfoliant is all natural! The smell isn’t so strong which is good given that it’s from natural ingredients. I can tell my face is softer.

  47. cayla

    I absolutely love this product! I’ve always had sensitive and rather dry skin and I’ve always struggled to find something that would work for me. This product went above and beyond. My skin is noticeably smoother and brighter with a super clean feeling after every use! I will be purchasing again! Thank you so much! ♡

  48. mj

    I used this rice and root last night with water. Instructions say to use with water, cleansing oil or cleanser from them (of course). I didn’t use enough to make a paste so I did it again this morning with my sample of Rice Cleanser. Beautiful combo! I enjoy the small grains cleansing my face gently from products I applied last night. Do not sleep on Chikyu- have been using various products for a year now.

  49. carla

    I absolutely love this product! I’ve always had sensitive and rather dry skin and I’ve always struggled to find something that would work for me. This product went above and beyond. My skin is noticeably smoother and brighter with a super clean feeling after every use! I will be purchasing again! Thank you so much! ♡

  50. Hannah Williams

    I have been using this scrub along with a sample of the Facial Cleansing Oil. I can feel a slight tingle as I massage the mixture into my skin. I love using this scrub once or twice a week. Smells wonderful with the oil and definitely has helped with acne scarring and the overall appearance of my skin.
