“Well-balanced skin flora is the key to maintaining moisturized skin” – Dr. Ishii
DR. ISHII AND HIS LEGACY
Over 50 years ago, Dr. Ishii had a patient that would change the way he practiced dermatology and revolutionize the field. Working in an environment and culture that focused only on complex skin conditions and severe burns, he dismissed a patient who was seeking treatment for acne. Seeing the patient react to his words, Dr. Ishii instantly knew he had made a mistake. He made a commitment to himself and his patients to learn from this mistake and became the first dermatologist in Japan to specialize in cosmetic dermatology.

THE DR. ISHII'S PHILOSOPHY
Dr. Ishii believed the common causes of various skin concerns to be:
1) Dehydrated skin
2) Imbalanced skin microbiome
By effectively maintaining a balanced skin microbiome for healthier skin, proper defense mechanisms function to protect Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) and intercellular lipids in the outermost layer of the skin (stratum corneum) from damage and keep the skin hydrated. By addressing the root causes of skin concerns, The FINGGY multi-purpose skin lotion creates the foundation for a clear, even, and radiant complexion.
