Since long ago, Japanese charcoal and bamboo charcoal have been said to be substances that absorb waste matter, supply natural minerals, discharge negative ions, and eliminate unpleasant odors. The negative ions generated by charcoal also soothe the feelings of pets. Moreover, the antimicrobial power of dry-distilled bamboo extract helps to keep coat and skin clean.
Japanese charcoal, bamboo charcoal, bamboo vinegar extract, Dead Sea salt, propolis (an ingredient extracted from the hives of honeybees), wheat germ oil, a mixture of vegetable extracts (green tea extract, saxifrage extract, Phellodendron bark extract, loquat leaf extract, Perilla herb extract, Houttuynia extract, natto extract).
Japanese charcoal emits large quantities of long infrared rays, even without being heated. Apart from their well-known thermal properties, long infrared rays have other non-thermal benefits such as the maturing of alcohol and the breakdown of water molecules. Long Infrared rays also improve the circulation in your pet's skin.
Japanese charcoal contains high concentrations of several minerals including calcium, potassium and magnesium, providing a good balance of minerals for your pet's skin.
Japanese charcoal releases minus ions into the air. Minus ions are often found in great quantities near natural features such as waterfalls. Minus ions affect our mental state, and are said to aid relaxation. Minus ions can also help relax your pet.
Oxidization is a process by which materials lose electrons. Japanese charcoal works as an electron donor. As well as preserving foods, charcoal can also preserve your pet's skin by preventing oxidization.
Japanese charcoal is finely porous. If you could stretch out one gram of charcoal it would cover 250 square meters. This large surface area absorbs unpleasant odors from the air, and cleans your pet's pores by absorbing dust and dirt.
Long infrared rays are colorless, invisible rays of light with a longer wavelength than visible rays. They are readily absorbed by water, macromolecular substances and organic matter, and have the property of heating the substances that absorb them. Thus, when they are absorbed by the human body, they promote perspiration and invigorate the circulation of blood and body fluids.
As opposed to near infrared rays, which have a wavelength of 0.75-4.0 microns, long Intrared rays have a wavelength of 4.0-'1000 microns. Compared to near infrared rays, long infrared rays have little photon energy, but they have an excellent ability to penetrate deep into the body and warm it.
Long infrared rays serve the following purposes: they raise the temperature of the skins deep subcutaneous layers; expand the capillaries; promote blood circulation; strengthen the metabolism of the blood and among the bodies organs; invigorate the circulation of body fluids; increase the regenerative ability and antispasmodic capacity of organs; suppress the abnormal excitation of the sensory nerves; adjust the functioning of the autonomic nerves; etc.
