Frequently Asked Questions :
Why Nightingale Droppings?
Shizuka remembered hearing about uguisu no fun from her mother while growing up in Tokyo. Japanese women have always prized pale, porcelain complexions and Shizuka's mother always stressed proper skincare and limiting sun exposure. When Shizuka was researching new and interesting facial ingredients, she thought back to her childhood and her mother's story about how geisha used nightingale droppings to keep their skin clear and pale.
Are nightingale droppings safe/sanitary to use on my face?
Yes, the nightingale droppings used at Shizuka New York Day Spa are professionally sanitized under UV light and powdered before being applied to the face.
Does the nightingale droppings facial mask smell?
Although the uguisu no fun has a slight musky aroma on its own, Shizuka's special mask formulation neutralizes this aroma, leaving a mild "organic" smell from the rice bran.
