# Things to Buy in Japan ♪  Family Medicine Total Skin Care Products of MENTURM/ THE OMI BROTHERHOOD (Lotion Cream & Lip balm)

Are you familiar with this green color logo?

Today, we would like to share with you the story of it 
and a series of its items we have been used. 

Maybe you have seen there is another similar logo in other skin care products!
No worry of either one fraud. 

Let us tell you the true story behind.


In Japan,  
THE OMI BROTHERHOOD had brought the selling privilege from The Mentholatum Company in the United States. 
As THE OMI BROTHERHOOD went through bankruptcy in 1974, 
the privilege was then sold to another pharmaceutical company ROHTO. 
Therefore, at that time, the Mentholatum products all belonged to ROHTO.
Afterwards, THE OMI BROTHERHOOD has recovered its business with the help of TAIHO Pharmaceutical. 
Although the selling privilege of the Mentholatum was sold to ROHTO,
it still has the production line of the MENTURM.

※MENTURM メンターム is the short form of Mentholatum メンソレータム.
It is the official name made by THE OMI BROTHERHOOD at the very beginning. 

THE OMI BROTHERHOOD then rebuilt the brand of MENTURM. 
So this trademark is not fraud.


What function does the MENTURM has?

MENTURM contains DL-camphor (for cooling) and L-menthol (mint ingredient) that helps promoting blood circulation, and anti-bacterial. 
Also, Eucalyptus, which is often used in pharmaceuticals, 
are used, so it is no doubt having a variety of functions and affordable. 
It is no exaggeration to keep it as a family medicine at home.

Let see how we use it ~



👍① Healing skin surface wounds and protect your skin effectively. 

Especially, the MENTURM contains mint and camphor, helping for calm the pain relief and itching. 
But it does not have anti-inflammatory effect! 
So it is more appropriate to apply it on the small wounds without bleeding 
like mosquito bites. 

👍②  Protect your skin that is always exposed to water and cleansers.  

Since the chemical effects, skin would get rough and dry. 
To solve the problem, apply The MENTURM after or even before working to 
protect your skin from further dryness and roughness. 

👍③ Improve muscle soreness

It is said that in United States, 
it is often used to slow down the symptoms of children's cold and muscle soreness.
If you have the similar symptoms, 
just apply the MENTURM on the surface!
Also, the MENTURM helps promote the blood circulation,
applying on top of bruises is recommended.

👍④  Improve nasal congestion and sore throat

Tip: You can take one or two tablespoon of the MENTURM into the boiling water, then slowly inhaling the steam to improve the nasal congestion and sore throat.

👍⑤  Others....  interesting and functioning usage

Tip for men:  when you are lack of shaving cream at home... lol
