BAMBOO VINEGAR EXTRACT.
The quality of our product is based on the purity of the Vinegar extract.
The extract used in the BodyPure Detox Pads is condensed five times and contains no synthetic vinegar or starch. After the initial extraction process, the extract is dried for a period of six months. It is then filtered four times using the highest quality Umbamegashi-Binchou Charcoal . It is then dried one more time for an additional six months before it can be considered for use. This process yields a very concentrated extract with an extremely high level of purity. BodyPure 2x includes more that 2x the amount of this extract than any other pads on the market.
