for the health of our family's skin!
What is Rice-wine?
Rice-wine (called 막걸리 Makgeolli) is a Korean alcoholic drink that is a favorite to have with friends on a rainy day. The milky, off-white and lightly sparkling drink tastes slightly sweet, tangy and bitter all at once. It is often unpasteurized to retain its complex enzymes and flavors but that also gives it a very short shelf life so it is difficult to find outside of Korea
We use soap everyday. But do you know how many chemical ingredients are in that soap you use? Our kids with particularly sensitive skin, our parents who worry about hair loss, your significant other whose skin has been flipped upside down by stress… how about making soap by hand for our precious family members?
Due to Korean Rice-wine’s natural ingredients it doesn’t irritate the skin, the fragrance is great and you can use it worry free. Plus during class Expert Kim Bongshil is full of great tips for a healthy lifestyle.
