About Shiro Nuka
We make our Shiro Nuka exclusively from the germ and inner bran layer (aleurone) of Japanese rice (diagram in the picture gallery.) Rice germ and aleurone weight only about 6% of the weight of the entire grain but account for over 80% of its nutrients.
Shiro Nuka's Gamma-oryzanol antioxidant brightens skin by suppressing melanin production, combats dryness and soothes inflammatory skin conditions. Its "super vitamin E" Tocotrienols fight damage caused by free radicals. B-complex vitamins promote new skin growth and mitigate the effects of aging.

I have been using the rice bran for almost two weeks using the face wash method in the evening before bed. The improvement in my skin is very noticeable. The tone has become very even, with discolouration from UV damage and acne scars reducing everyday. I live in a humid climate at this time of year which results in facial breakouts but now I almost have none. It initially felt like you aren’t doing anything useful as we have been so trained (in the West) to use harsh cosmetics on our face, but after the second day it was obvious that this is an excellent product with cumulative benefits when used daily.
I tried this product for the first time and I am so happy with the purchase. The package arrived so quickly to the US and it was packed with a great care. Thank you!
All of the products I received from WAWAZA are beautiful. Everything arrived to Australia packaged perfectly. When the shipment was delayed, Yoshi kept me updated personally. The products are all exceptional quality. Shiro Nuka is beautiful - soothing, calming and whitening. I couldn't be happier with all of my purchases and I bought quite a few things. Very, very happy customer. THANK YOU.
I love you’re products they are exactly what they say ❤️
I enjoyed the smell, texture and feel of the rice bran on my skin. Great quality, as expected of japanese products.
I have been using Shiro nuka for two months now. I use this twice a week with the cotton bags(which is included in the packet) and it really makes my skin glow a lot. It also soothes my skin and makes it very soft. I really recommend it to people to include it in their skincare, it certainly makes a big difference.
I’ve tried different things from Wawaza, and I’m sooo happy that I found this website. All the products feel very natural, giving the results straight away. Honestly, I didn’t expect much after just one try, but I was totally surprised. My favorite products are 1. Japanese Shiro Nuka Rice Bran Skin Revitalizer Economy Pack 2. Funori Japanese Seaweed Hair Cleanser and Conditioner 3. Bijin Pure Rice Bran Facial and Body Oil. Rice bran skin revitalizer left my skin feeling very soft and brightened ...I even used the leftovers for my bath to revitalize the whole body. 2. Funori Seaweed Hair Cleanser/Conditioner is wonderful for my hair. It left my hair very glossy and hydrated like after the hair keratin treatment... and their customer service is very friendly and helpful. They helped me with the Japanese Tsuge Wood Traditional Comb 98 mm holder. Also, Wawaza gave me different samples of their products which is great I love little samples, which shows how thoughtful the company is. So that’s my review, not paid totally honest review because I feel like it. Thank you so much, Wawaza.
This powder works well. I use it as a mask and it brightens and softens my skin. Thank you!
Was skeptical at first because my face is extremely sensitive and could inflame even with brands such as Avene. However I asked seller to tag a test size for me, and now I'm ready to get the big pack. This is just so good for my face. I'm using it as a vitamin water for my daily facial wash. Fallen in love with it already just after 1 usage.
This is wonderful. Skin feels like glass after use, blemishes reduced and nice even texture. I then use it on the back of my hands which makes them very smooth and reduces freckles etc. This is a staple in my beauty routine now and I use it every three days or so. I honestly wouldn't be without this again.
This is new for me. I never used it before. Now, I use the powder once a week in old fashion method. It exfoliates my skin and makes it lighter and brighter. After that I put a small amount of rise brain oil, which nourishes my skin greatly.
I love this! I have oily skin and I tend to scar from blemish so I’m always looking for good products to combat that. Plus I’m :0 so anti-aging never hurts. I had a reaction to products I was using and my cheeks had those tiny white bumps- milia all over. I was crushed and started reevaluating my skincare. I got this as a sample and decided to try it. No joke, my milia cleared up in one use. I noticed a huge difference. I love it and will always keep this in my house!
