Rice & Ceramide Moisturizing Emulsion - 150ml - $12 - a water-based lotion with a milky, non-sticky texture and a semi-liquid consistency that replenishes moisture instantly and gets even more moisturizing as the time passes. 
Rice & Ceramide Moisturizing Cream - 50ml - $13 - helps give skin a visibly translucent and healthy glow while gently moisturizing dry skin.
The products are all non-irritating and contain the key ingredients of rice extract and rice bran oil - to help moisturize and nourish skin while gently exfoliating; and nano ceramide water –- to help naturally accelerate the absorption of moisture and strengthen the moisture barrier to prevent moisture loss - and are free from 4 potentially harmful additives: paraben, tar, mineral oil and talc.
