A Little History

The bird droppings come from nightingales inhabiting the Japanese island of Kyushu.  The birds are fed a special diet of seeds and berries, making their droppings organic and vegan.  After collection, the droppings are then treated with UV light to sanitize and dehydrate them before being turned into a fine powder.  These ingredients are very rare and few places offer the facial. The nightingale facial was first used as a beauty treatment in Japan back in the 17th century when geisha girls and kabuki performers discovered it helped repair skin damage caused by the heavy lead-based make-up they wore.
