Eisei Sahne Cream: New from the Makers of Chocola BB
Our customers are huge fans of Eisei for their Chocola BB range of vitamin-based beauty supplements. But that’s not all they do! Eisei Sahne Cream is a vitamin-infused moisturizer that has been a Japanese staple since 1954. The range has been renewed for the first time in 20 years, so we figured there is no better time to throw a spotlight on this simple but super-useful item! Read on to find out why every medicine cabinet can use a jar of Japanese Sahne cream.
What is Eisei Sahne Cream?
If you’ve used similar creams for dry skin you may find the often very thick and tacky texture off-putting. This is especially true if you’re dealing with dry skin that needs continual care. Eisei Sahne Cream, on the other hand, takes its name for the German word for “cream”. Just like its namesake, it’s characterized by a lightweight, creamy formula that dries to a smooth finish. No stickiness to deal with!

Other ingredients: Octyldodecanol, adsorption refined lanolin, glycerin, cresol, fragrance, self-emulsifying propylene glycol stearate, dipropylene glycol, silicone resin, cetostearyl alcohol, d-δ-tocopherol, paraffin, paraben, partially hydrogenated soybean phospholipid, benzyl alcohol, cetylated saturated fatty acid, isopropyl myristate, glycerin monostearate, polyethylene glycol monostearate, polyoxyethylene sorbitan monostearate, sodium lauryl phosphate
As active ingredients. Eisei Sahne cream contains Vitamin E which can help with skin healing. While its second active ingredient, dipotassium glycyrrhizinate, may seem a little mysterious, it’s actually a licorice extract that’s used as both a food additive and a common anti-inflammatory ingredient in many moisturizers and acne treatments. Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate can help settle inflammation like acne or shaving rash, while Vitamin E helps heal cracked, chapped, or otherwise damaged skin.

What’s different about the new version?
The new version of Eisei Sahne Cream maintains its smooth, hydrating formula that has made it such a long-selling hit, but comes with a milder fragrance. This change will be welcome for anyone who is a little sensitive to stronger scents, or prefer something a little more subtle for daily use in the office. Sahne also features a stylish logo redesign that feels a little more luxe than the old design:
This is an ideal all-purpose family moisturizer and a useful addition to your skincare routine. We highly recommend checking this out if you deal with dry and cracked hands, elbows or heels. To get a tube for yourself, you can get this handy cream shipped worldwide at Wonect!
