Where to buy Natural CC cream in Japan & How is it Better than BB Cream?

CC cream in Japan

There are many options for CC cream in Japan.  In the beauty industry, CC creams have taken over as a magic, all-in-one product that gives you a natural, fresh-faced look.  Cosmetics are a very personal part of your skin care routine, especially with every individual’s unique skin type and the beautiful rainbow of skin tones that surround us.   Taking your time to know your skin and do your research is the key to finding the best CC cream in Japan.

What are ‘alphabet’ creams?

‘Alphabet’ creams, (BB and CC) both revolutionized the beauty industry because they possess the lightness and skin loving properties of a tinted moisturizer while also maintaining the skin perfecting qualities of a foundation.  Alphabet creams do this without weighing down your skin and giving you that dreaded “caked-on” look.  An added bonus of alphabet creams is that they also contain sun protecting qualities too.

All About BB Cream

You have probably heard of BB cream, the predecessor of CC cream.  BB stands for “blemish balm” and was first developed in the 1950’s by Dr. Christine Schrammek, a German dermatologist.  It was designed to both, soothe and protect patients skin post peel, while also evening out skin-tone and blemishes.  It proved to be so effective that she began marketing it and developing it for commercial production.  South Korean women soon caught wind of its blemish busting properties and it exploded in popularity.  BB cream now makes up 13% of all beauty products sold in South Korea.  As it was so popular in creating dewey, baby smooth skin in Asia, BB cream soon made its way around the world.

Since then, a former Singaporean Miss Universe contestant called Rachel Kum began a cosmetics and skin care company called Rachel K Cosmetics and developed CC cream, which was a new and improved version of BB cream.  The CC stands for “color correction” or “color control” cream and is seen as a lighter, airier option to BB cream.  CC cream is said to brighten dull skin and effectively cover minor skin issues such as redness or uneven skin tone.
