Flakes of Kumazasa are blended with buckwheat husks to heighten the pillow's antibacterial and deodorizing properties. The pillow is very gentle to the skin and no chemicals are used in its production.
Buckwheat husks are believed to be the perfect material for pillows in Japan's hot and humid climate. They have great breathablity and do not retain heat. However, since it is a natural grain, it can attract bugs.
To prevent bugs, we first boil our buckwheat husks, and then wash them with Kumazasa extract, which has antibacterial and deodorizing properties.
The buckwheat husks used in Sasawashi products are clean and safe.
