Imagine if you could consume your skincare anytime, anywhere instead of applying it topically… sounds strange, doesn’t it?

As unusual as it may seem, it’s a well-known fact that a healthy and balanced diet does wonders for our skin, hence the emergence of oral skin supplements that contain nutritional ingredients.

However, just like topical skincare, it’s important to use products that are suitable for your skin. After all, anything you put on your skin and eat will have an impact on your health in some way, therefore it’s crucial to conduct research on the best products.

If you’re looking for something to ease your dry skin woes, ORBIS has introduced the first and only FOSHU (Food for Specified Health Uses)-certified oral moisturiser in Japan, designed to provide hydration for your skin…


With over 30 years in the market, ORBIS started out by researching skin from a scientific standpoint. This soon led to the conceptualisation of many skincare products, such as their own facewash, lotions, moisturisers, and ORBIS DEFENCERA, their edible moisturiser.

ORBIS DEFENCERA is Japan’s first government-approved oral moisturiser that has been verified safe and effective in preventing moisture from escaping the skin.

Formulated with highly-purified DF-Ceramides, extracted from brown rice, it sends signals to produce more ceramides in the body. Since ceramides are lipids that form our natural skin barrier and help retain moisture, its production helps fill up the gaps between skin cells. This creates a three-layer barrier, which makes it difficult for moisture to escape the skin.

Watch the video below to have a better understanding of how ceramides promote moisture for your skin:

Dubbed as the ‘edible moisturiser’, it is packed conveniently in a sachet, making it easy to consume on the go!

Since it comes in a powdered form, you can choose to eat it on its own, or dissolve it in a glass of water, whichever you prefer. 🙂 Plus, it’s even yuzu flavoured, which gives it a yummy, citrusy taste, mmm.

The best part is that it’s not just limited to those with dry skin, as it’s suitable for all skin types. You can keep your skin refreshed and hydrated, not just for your face but also for your entire body.

With over 10 years of research and strict testing, you can be sure that ORBIS DEFENCERA will help keep your skin hydrated and moisturised.


According to Dr Satoshi Hirawaka, chief researcher, skin science specialist, and ageing care expert at POLA Chemical Industries, ORBIS DEFENCERA is not a product that is easy to create. For this particular product, it took six years for research and development on ceramides, and another four years to evaluate its effectiveness and safety to get the FOSHU certification.
