Currently you can these fruits selling at major hypermarkets store, these two purely Japanese-

Nikkori Pear, a new late maturing, russet-skin type cultivar of Japanese pear produced from the Tochigi prefecture is a new type of pear developed from cross seedlings between full-figured Niitaka and flavourful Hosui in 1984.

Do you know that Nikkori pear can only be harvested in mid-October? Then stored for a long period of time until February, thus specialty and superiority of its unique fruit.

Japan also prides on their Sweet Potatoes, a purely Japanese - grown produce from the prefecture of Ibaraki - the second- biggest producer of sweet potatoes in Japan in terms of both production area and amount. The most widely grown variety of sweet potatoes in this prefecture is 'Beniazuma and Beniharuka', known for its characteristically soft and flaky texture.
Do you know each Nikkori Pear weight one kg? 

Nikkori Pear and Ibaraki Japanese Sweet Potatoes personally grown in Japan taste sweeter and fresher as it's tended to with care and consideration by Japanese farmers. You'll like the these agricultural products, retaining the sweetness and natural flavours of the pear and sweet potatoes.

If you like to know the price of the Nikkori Pear, it cost RM22.90 for each.
The Ibaraki Japanse Sweet Poatoes cost RM9.90 each packet.

Don't just read here, if you have interest to shop for them, head to AEON BIG. AEON BIG is the first hypermarket chain offering true Japanese produce.

Early this year, I blogged about the Guardian Botaneco Garden Organic Argan &Virgin Olive Oil.

The Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Collection is free from harmful ingredients such as parabens, artificial colorants and silicone giving you who are health-conscious and environmentally-friendly, peace of mind.

Babassu oil is ideal for hair moisturisation. It contains five fatty acids as well as Vitamin E and phytosterols which act as anti oxidant agents.

Baobab oil is an ancient beauty secret of Africa. This centuries old therapy is laden with Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids that promote healthy skin and hair. Baobab oil leaves the hair soft and silky while protecting it from damage caused by the sun and free radicals. Baobab oil is also an excellent skin moisturiser, which absorbs quickly into the skin.

Chufa oil is a mainstay of Mediterranean beauty. By containing Omega 6 and 9 as well as Vitamin E, chufa oil is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals to preserve a more youthful appearance.

The Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Bath Collection consists of three variants to suit different targeted and intensive needs, namely Whitening, Moisturising and Gentle Cleansing.

Consider the Whitening variant if uneven skin tone or dark patches are a problem, as it is enriched with apricot kernels and licorice extracts, to gently exfoliate skin while evening out skin tone.

Opt for the Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Moisturising variant if long hours in dry environments such as air-conditioned workplaces leave skin dry. It has added olive oil and Vitamin E to boost the moisturising effects of Trio Oil, improve skin elasticity as well as provide satin care for dry skin.

The Gentle Cleansing variant with cherry blossom extract is ideal as it helps in skin softening and prevents skin dryness.

Three variants are also available for the Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Hair Shampoo and Conditioner Collection that provides salon quality results, minus the harshness of paraben, artificial colorants and silicone on hair and scalp.

The collection provides effective solutions to common hair problems such as frizzy, damaged, and weak hair that is prone to falling due to breakage. It is silicone-free for relaxing shampoo and conditioning experience.

To tame coarse and frizzy hair opt for the Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner variant that adds calendula extract to the moisturising power of Trio Oil to condition hair for a smoother and more manageable texture.

The Repair & Strengthen Shampoo and Conditioner variant is perfect for damaged hair as the magnolia extract adds conditioning to the moisturising and smoothing properties of Trio Oil.

Enriched with sunflower oil, the Hair Fall Control Shampoo and Conditioner of the Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Collection is enriched with sunflower oil to strengthen hair and reduce hair fall due to breakage.

In addition to three exotic oils, the Hair Elixir is enriched with Chamomile extract to deliver ten types of hair benefits. Among superior benefits from Hair Elixir are moisturising and nourishing, conditioning, damage repair, detangling and improve hair manageability. This Hair Elixir also protects our hair from UV and delivers antioxidant benefits while maintaining hair shine as well as softening and anti frizz. I like this as I don't feel it's oily at all using this product.

Consumers will appreciate that it is priced within reach for a high quality, eco-conscious performance line giving more people access to solutions for their daily personal care needs,” Ms Lee said in closing.
