The OTHAKA enzymes are created by the fermentation technique of the OTHAKA - Institute in Japan.
It is a patented method that has been researched at the OHTAKA Institute for more than 100 years.
Phase 1 – Extraction
52 natural plant substances are extracted in special cedar containers for 7 days.
In this process, an artificial room is created in which the four seasons circulate daily.
The result is an untreated solution with life cultures.
Fermented microorganisms with their special formula achieve an impact that is up to tenfold more effective as they get through to the lower dermis layer:
The skin metabolism is stimulated, whereby the skin is visibly smoothed and tightened. Skin blemishes are removed and an anti-aging and detox effect is achieved. Ideal for sensitive skin with atopic dermatitis.
Phase 2 - Reifung
Afterwards, these life cultures are brought in a maturation room for three years. At constant 37 degrees Celsius they ferment to the OTHAKA-enzymes. The OTHAKA tradition is maintained by creating an optimal environment accompanied by classical music.
The new ingredients “Zyen“ and “Zyen-r“ (gamma) are created which contribute to an improved skin appearance and strengthens the natural skin barrier.
