WHAT IS UGUISU NO FUN?
Uguisu No Fun, most commonly known as geisha facial or bird poop facial, is a very rare and effective facial treatment with over 400 years of history in Japan. Uguisu Poo Co. Ltd. sells the highest quality and purest uguisu no fun facial treatment masks and soaps. We are the only company allowed by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare to farm Japanese Nightingale Bird Poop for use in cosmetics. Other companies have discontinued Uguisu farming since late 2012 due to stricter regulations imposed by the ministry. One of the regulations that leads to the closure of the other two remaining farms was disallowing Nightingale farming near cities which leads to closure of all nightingale farms except ours. Since our farm is located at the foot of Mt. Ibuki, we effortlessly complied with the newly imposed regulation.
Uguisu no fun or also known as Japanese Nightingale droppings are usually sold raw. It is processed by harvesting the Japanese Nightingale bird’s droppings and drying them out in the sun for at least 2 weeks. However, multiple researches show that there are unnecessary waste materials not needed by the human skin in raw uguisu no fun such as ammonia, dead bacterial debris and its cytoplasmic materials as well as undigested food materials eaten by the bird that could be seeds, fruits, worms or insects. Hence, using the latest technology, we removed these known wastes to create the finest and purest Uguisu No Fun: Enhanced Uguisu No Fun that is proven to be 4 times more effective than the regular Uguisu No Fun.
for over 400 years, no one is certain why Uguisu No Fun brightens the skin, hydrates it for very long periods, make pores smaller and give it a younger and softer look. Japanese women using Uguisu No Fun are called “Porcelain Ladies” in ancient times because of their flawlessly smooth, bright skin. Today we know why Uguisu No Fun is beneficial to the skin.
1. Guanine – The bird poop is very rich in guanine, it became synonymous with the word “Guano” due to this fact. However, not all bird poop contains good guanine. What is unique with Japanese Nightingale feces is that, it contains the highest amount of guanine in its pristine form. Due a very short intestine, the guanine in the Japanese Nightingale poop is intact and undigested. Guanine is the reason why Uguisu No Fun users describe their skin as bright and shimmering. The illuminating effect is so intense that customers complained that their face is bright and white while their body, where masked is not used, was left in a darker shade. We were forced to create Uguisu No Fun soaps to ensure that the face and body is of the same brightness.
2. Urea – Japanese Nightingale bird feces is very rich in urea. In fact, their excrement is richest in urea. It is known in the cosmetics world that urea is a very important organic compound because of its moisture locking properties. Urea hydrates the skin and at the same time treats and prevents wrinkles and other signs and symptoms of skin ageing and sun damage.
3. Proteolytic Enzymes – These enzymes are very important when it comes to the anti ageing effect of Uguisu No Fun. Just like in our digestion, we digest complex carbohydrates to convert it to a simple sugar known as glucose for it to be utilized as energy by the body. Same goes to our skin. The protein in the products we used are not usable unless it is converted into a simplest amino acid. Almost all products in the market that contains protein, collagen or other similar compounds are useless as they are not absorbed transdermally. The proteolytic enzymes in Uguisu Poo’s Uguisu No Fun converts collagen and other important protein to the smallest amino acids that are utilized and absorbed by the surface of the skin. This is the main reason why users of Uguisu No Fun describes their skin as smooth, poreless, youthful and porcelain like. To know more about how we produce the best Uguisu No Fun, click here.
