Feedback from customers:

There are many imitations in the market recently. Ever heard of false claims from sales promoters saying..."From Japan" or simply with "Japan" print or Japanese words on the package without Japan manufacturer name and address ? Well, these products are poor quality products usually made in China. Use of such products could cause HARM to your body instead of benefitting you.

Insist on Made in Japan or True Japanese Brand for
Quality and Safety.

Begonia Story...

One of our customer, Mark, is very kind to share his success and happiness in using our Japanese Bamboo Charcoal Products. His Begonia had never blossomed since he started growing. So he decided to try out Kurochiku Charcoal Sticks to improve the plants condition. After using for a few weeks, the Begonia began to blossom. 10 flowers appeared. Now, the plant continues to blossom even after old flowers fall.

These are attributed to the our authentic Bamboo Charcoal effects of minerals release, water retention, far infrared rays emission, electromagnetic wave reduction and negative ions effect which are conducive for the plants. This can be related back to health effects on humans using authentic Bamboo Charcoal Products.

Our No. 1 Selling Made in Japan Bamboo Charcoal Slices now comes in a handy packaging with 8 slices inside.

Our Bamboo Charcoal Slices is once again our Best Seller in Singapore! Using bamboo (4-5 years old) from Japan's forest and processed in Japan. The secret of creating 'Energy Water' without buying expensive filter systems and saves electricity, thus saving the environment too!

Studies in Japan by Prof Nomura, Kyoto University, shows that Far Infrared Rays emitted from the bamboo charcoal can break down the water molecule clusters into smaller and more organised groups. This 'Energy Water' will be more easily absorbed by the body and improves our health.

Bamboo charcoal can also turn water from PH 7 (Neutral) to PH 7.3 (Alkaline). Bamboo Charcoal water contains more oxygen due to presence of more OH- ions. In addition, bamboo charcoal can absorb chlorine and impurities. It will also release minerals into the water, turning it into tasty and nutritious mineral water.

Our Bamboo Charcoal products are now made more easily available to our customers, especially customers from India, Middle East and African countries. Mustafa shopping complex opens 24 hours a day.

Some customers enquired on some of the charcoal deodourisers packed in containers sold in the market. They are usually added with nice fragrances and also labelled as "Charcoal".

These products are found to be made of chemical gel/jelly dyed with black charcoal powder. The method used in this product is by means of chemical reaction. The Bamboo Charcoal are all filled with the gel which makes the charcoal powder inside ineffective in its absorption capabilities.
