Father's Day is coming soon A family who wants his father to always look cool and a father who doesn't want to be told that he smells like "father" intersects...
I am a member of " Living with Japanese essential oils ", a specialty store for Japanese essential oils and domestic natural cosmetics.
It's almost Father's Day, isn't it?
Father's Day this year is Sunday, June 18th.
Well, what are you going to give as a gift for Father's Day?
If you were to give a present, what would you give?
Ties and tie pins are also good.
but please wait a moment.
No matter how cool
No matter how stylish
Doesn't it make you smell like an old man as soon as you smell the smell of aging? ?
Humans are insensitive to their own odors...
You may not be aware of it, but the family you live with may be very concerned.
This time, I would like to talk about aging odor countermeasures and Japanese essential oils.
Aging odor is a delicate issue
I'm in trouble with the smell of aging.
I really don't want to say that I smell like a father.
If you care about it, it will hurt you unnecessarily,
Most men will be shocked even if they don't realize it.
The problem of body odor is very delicate.
It may be easier for family to tell,
Bosses, seniors, co-workers, clients...
I think that there are many cases where it is not possible to tell from the standpoint.
If you are a middle-aged man,
You may be aware of the existence of aging odor and take care of yourself, saying, "It's about time for me...".
But no matter how many times I wash it, the pillow still stinks.
It stinks even with Febreze.
This is a problem that I would like to do something about.
Causes and harmful effects of aging odor
So why does aging occur?
Let's look at the causes.
Oxidation of palmitoleic acid is the cause of aging odor
The sebum secreted from the sebaceous glands in the skin contains more “palmitoleic acid” as we age.
The palmitoleic acid combines with oxygen in the air to generate oxidation "2-nonenal".
This is the cause of the so-called aging odor.
The page of "Men's Smell Research Institute" which is very easy to understand with images
Aging isn't just for men
Aging odor has an image of middle-aged men,
After the age of 40, nonenal also increases from the sebum secreted by women, so I don't think it's someone else's problem.
I can't even joke like "Dad, daddy" anymore...
In a survey conducted by Shiseido,
Out of 2,400 business people in their 20s to 50s, more than 70% of them said that they have felt the "old age smell of others".
You have to take care of odor as one of your appearances on a regular basis.
Aging odor is the enemy of beautiful skin
Furthermore, the smell of aging is not only stinky.
It has been found to have terrifying effects on the skin.
Dimethylsulfone and benzothiasesol, which are produced from the skin in increasing amounts with age, cause inflammation and damage to the skin.
Surprisingly, when you get older, not only does your metabolism slow down, but the smell you give off also causes skin inflammation.
Nonenal kills epidermal cells!?
When asked about "aging odor", "nonenal" is mentioned as a representative ingredient.
From a few years ago, even in variety shops such as Loft, you can often see products with a scent that mask nonenal in the cosmetics section for middle-aged men.
In the past, a colleague gave it to his boss for his birthday,
The boss's reaction at that time was "Oh, oh... (I'm not cool?)"
I was making an expression.
The image of the product as "anti-aging odor" must have made me think so.
Although nonenal has been generally recognized,
It was found to induce keratinocyte apoptosis and reduce cell viability.
…Suddenly the words became like spells.
Keratinocytes are “epidermal cells”. These are cells on the surface of the skin.
It seems to cause apoptosis of this skin cell, that is, suicide.
What do you mean...
Not only cucumbers but also skin can be harmed! Nikki aging odor!
But don't worry.
Odor masking nonenal,
In other words, there is a smell that cancels out and makes it less noticeable.
Experiments with Aromatic Substances Masking Nonenal
Divided into a scent team that masks nonenal and a scent team that does not mask nonenal,
After conducting an experiment to verify the effect,
Fragrance that masks nonenal
- benzyl aldehyde
- benzyl acetate
- phenylethyl alcohol
was added to keratinocytes together with nonenal,
It is said that the probability of cell survival has increased compared to nonenal alone.
On the other hand,
Fragrance that does not mask nonenal
- 1.8 cineole
- beta damascone
- OT butyl cyclohexyl acetate
There was little change in cell viability in the team that was added together.
So, in conclusion, the fragrance that masks nonenal is
It was found that not only does it make the scent of nonenal less noticeable, but it also affects the life and death of epidermal cells.
An experiment in which nonenal was applied to the epidermis
Next, using a 3D skin model,
We will introduce an experiment in which nonenal was applied to the surface of an epidermis model for two days.
It seems that the thickness of the epidermis became thinner in the epidermis model that was applied for 2 days.
This means that epidermal cells are dying.
Incomplete nucleation = keratin is no longer produced and the skin is in a state of not being able to protect it.
If masking fragrance is applied together there,
Epidermal model thickness was restored and hyponucleation was suppressed.
For fragrances with low masking effect,
Still nothing changed.
In short, the skin becomes thinner with age,
It means that aging odor is also involved in the fact that it is not so-called plump skin and it becomes wrinkled.
Nonenal Masking Fragrance Expected in Aging Care
As can be seen from the research presented here,
It was found that good masking of nonenal is useful for anti-aging.
Therefore, there are high expectations for the development of fragrances that mask nonenal for skin care.
Who publishes such information?
Shiseido Future Development Institute Co., Ltd.
It is the largest company in the Japanese cosmetics industry.
I think that the fact that Shiseido has been discovering the possibilities of fragrances in developing skin care products is very good news for the Japanese essential oil and aromatherapy industries.
What is Japanese essential oil that is effective against aging odor?
Once again, familiar aromatic substances contained in Japanese essential oils can be cited as aromatic substances that mask nonenal.
They are linalool and phenylethyl alcohol .
These two aromatic substances are found in essential oils that are really commonly used in aromatherapy.
When studying the efficacy and action of each essential oil, many are written as "cell growth promoting action" and "anti-wrinkle action".
It is often used in facial treatments.
Japanese essential oil with linalool as the main component
As a Japanese essential oil whose main component is linalool,
The representative one is " kuromoji essential oil ".
Among Japanese essential oils, it is often used in various situations as an all-around player and an alternative to lavender.
In addition, linalool is also the main component of "hosho essential oil" produced in Kagoshima.
Hosho has a higher linalool content than Kuromoji, and personally, the lotion using Hosho has a soothing scent that I call it a " fragrant body pillow ".
Japanese essential oils with linalool as the main ingredient are often used as raw materials in cosmetics, so you can relax and take care of aging, so it's a two birds with one stone.

Japanese essential oil with phenylethyl alcohol as the main component
The aromatic substance called phenylethyl alcohol is said to have a "rose-like scent".
When you say so,
The reason why rose essential oil and rose scent are used in anti-aging cosmetics may be due to nonenal countermeasures.
However, if a middle-aged or older man wears the scent of roses like Cleopatra,
(Cleopatra is famous for floating rose petals in her bathtub.)
I think it actually creates an atmosphere that makes it difficult to ask whether the rose scent is used as a countermeasure against nonenal or whether you really like it.
Floral scents have a gorgeous image, so
A little assertive to match the suit,
It kind of reminds me of the party scene.
It is the scent of Kuromoji that plays an active role there.
It can be used genderlessly and is also used in cosmetics .

Example of deodorizing effect of Japanese essential oil
Terpenes of cedar essential oil and fir essential oil
Japanese essential oil is rich in forests and has a deep relationship with forestry.
Therefore, I often hear from people in the forestry industry.
Among them, I once heard a rumor that "Forestry boys are not bad".
(I don't know if it actually is...)
This is because the aromatic substances contained in the essential oils of coniferous trees, which are called "forest scents," have a strong deodorizing effect.
Cedar essential oil has a high deodorizing effect,
Since ancient times, it has been treated as wood for toilets.
In addition, in a survey of the indoor air quality improvement effect of tree essential oils, cedar leaf essential oil and fir leaf essential oil showed a high effect.
Please refer to the site that summarizes easily.
Eco-House Column Studying the living environment Cedar is indeed amazing! Improvement of indoor air quality with tree essential oils:/ /navi.ecohouse.ac/ecohouse-column/ecohouse-tree-essential-oil
Hinokitiol of hiba essential oil and Yakusugi essential oil
Hinokitiol, which is contained in Hiba essential oil, is known for its high antibacterial and antifungal effects.
It has also been found to have a high deodorant effect on ammonia odor.
In addition, Yakusugi essential oil distilled in Yakushima is also a highly deodorizing essential oil against ammonia and formaldehyde.
Reference: Multiple uses of Essential Oil and By-Products from Various Parts of the Yakushima Native Cedar ( Cryptomeria Japonica )
Ammonia is an odor called "fatigue odor", which is different from "aging odor".
Then you may think that it has nothing to do with aging odor, but
"Fatigue odor" is emitted from the whole body, and it is easy for people who are stressed because their liver and kidneys are tired.
I drink a lot of alcohol, eat a lot of meat and fish, don't exercise much,
It may be better to take measures if there are three items that come to mind, such as being anxious and nervous, or staying up late a lot.
How to use Japanese essential oil as a countermeasure against aging odor
The scents of kuromoji, hosho, rose, cedar, fir, hiba, and Yakusugi mask nonenal and help prevent aging. I know you will buy it.
However, even if there is a small bottle of Japanese essential oil, it may be difficult for many people to imagine how to use it to combat aging odor.
So I would like to suggest
- facial treatment
- essential oil sticker
- handmade aroma spray
Let's explain step by step.
In recent years, the number of cosmetics made from aromatic distilled water and essential oils of Kuromoji has increased.
Facial cleanser , lotion , serum , cream ,
It is easy to use pre-made products such as shampoo , conditioner , and hair tonic.
There are also products on the market that contain hinokitiol, a type of hiba essential oil.
Hinokitiol was originally used as an antibacterial agent in cosmetics.
Especially if you use natural cypress essential oil, you can also enjoy the scent of forest bathing at the same time.
Above all, it is a killer two birds with one stone because it can prevent rough skin and improve the scalp environment .
As you can see, there are many cosmetics such as shampoos that can be shared by the whole family.
First of all, try incorporating it into one of your lifestyle habits.
2. Treatment oil
It may seem that the hurdles are high when it comes to treatment oils.
However, in reality, you can simply apply a carrier oil diluted with Japanese essential oils of kuromoji and coniferous trees instead of body cream after bathing.
Body treatment oil has a concentration of about 1% of essential oil
The treatment oil for the face has an essential oil concentration of about 0.5%.
Use the above concentration as a guide and mix the Japanese essential oil with the carrier oil.
Store the mixed oil in a sealed container in a cool, dark place.
Please use up within one month.
3. Sticker for exclusive use of essential oil
It is convenient to have a sticker dedicated to dripping essential oil .
It looks like a non-woven fabric,
It is devised to prevent essential oils from seeping out from the back.
If there is a sticker for exclusive use of essential oil,
It can be attached to clothes, so you can care for aging odors in your jacket.
Aging odor is often generated especially from the back,
You can also put a sticker on the back of the shirt where it is hidden by the necktie.
On the contrary, it is important to pay attention to the strength of the fragrance so as not to cause "sumehara".
4. Handmade aroma spray
Making your own aroma spray is relatively easy.
The materials are an alcohol-compatible spray bottle, absolute ethanol,
Purified water, four essential oils.
If absolute ethanol is not available,
The alcohol concentration will be lower, but rubbing alcohol will do.
If you don't have purified water,
Mineral water is fine.
how to make
・Pour ethanol into a spray bottle.
・Add your favorite Japanese essential oil.
・Add purified water.
Shake well before using.
It can be used to deodorize clothes, deodorize pillows, and deodorize sofas.
Summary: Japanese essential oil can be used to combat aging odor
It turns out that aging odor is not only a problem for men, but also a great enemy of beautiful skin.
As a family, I would appreciate it if you could become a father with a refreshing scent rather than a father who smells of aging...
Measures to prevent odors from being recognized by skillfully masking 2-nonenal, which is the source of aging odors,
It was found that tree-based Japanese essential oils containing terpenes have a high deodorizing effect.
