a century of trust
We started our brand in 1919, which means over one hundred years of bringing our customers clean ingredients they can trust and a deep connection to traditional Japanese beauty culture. We take our traditions seriously- As demonstrated by our Uji matcha harvesters, who have been in the organic matcha business for over 350 years.
Kindness to all
We not only believe in being kind to your skin, but being kind to the environment as well. We are proudly ECOCERT-certified, cruelty-free, and 100% free from parabens, microbeads, phthalate esters, and synthetic coloring. Together we can make this planet (and your skin) a kinder and more gentle place.
holistic approach to skincare
Your skincare routine should go deeper than simply the products you use. We believe in the traditions of Japanese beauty, which include a whole-body, holistic approach to self-care. Whether it is learning about matcha tea ceremonies, educating yourself on skincare ingredients, or simply just taking a moment to unwind, we believe in taking care of yourself from the inside out. And trust us, your body and mind will thank you.
