Even though we don't always see them, dead skin cells like to linger on the surface of the skin and can make it look dull. Fortunately, there is nothing that a good rub can't remove, and this is where ground aduki beans prove to be very useful.
From the bean genus (Phaseolus) of the legume family (Fabaceae), the aduki plant grows like a vine and bears pods filled with beans. These can be cooked whole or ground into a fine flour. They have been grown and eaten in Korea, China and Japan since ancient times, and are often called ‘king of beans’.
Lush purchase organically-grown aduki beans from China which are then shipped to the UK to be ground. When whole, they are dark red in colour with a thin white line along the ridge.
