Hokkaido Pure Horse Oil Cream


Saw this oil cream when I'm in Hokkaido & have try the tester when I'm there. Heard it can be found in Isetan Scotts, basement pharmacy (the japanese drugstore). its for multi purpose, like for dry hair ends, body moisturizing..........
Hokkaido Pure Horse Oil Cream is known for its natural moisturizing quality for the dry climate in Hokkaido. Horse oil has been used as a 'folk medicine' for skin problems, burns and insect bites for centuries. The fatty acid composition of horse oil is similar to that of human sebum. Sebum has skin barrier systems that can protect your skin from bacteria,harmful substances and outside stimuli. Strongly recommended for people of all ages who have dry skin. Use it in all seasons.
The price of 70 ml is about 1050 Jap Yen, not sure how much does it cost in sg?

Hi Andy!

How's the smell like?

Frankly speaking I don't quite like the smell, I suppose is pure horse oil so there's a kind of raw/animal smell, but heard it really work well for extremely dry/crack skin though.
There's also the horse oil with lavender/Q10 which is much gel type & this smell quite good but not as moisturizing as the pure one!

If you don't like the smell, then I suggest you try Kiehl's Argan Skin Salve.

The argan smell is tolerable, and works well on dry areas & flyaways.

I have the Horse Mane shampoo, made my hair so dry~~

Hi Andy,

Hi Beloved

I don't think so cause this pure horse oil is quite oily, i think only for very very dry body skin or hair.
