The Japanese double cleansing

Updated: May 25, 2022

Double cleansing might seem like a new concept, but it’s actually been a part of Japanese beauty for centuries. Hundreds of years ago, Japanese women desired flawless porcelain complexions that they achieved with a bright white powder blended with wax. To remove the makeup, they used an emollient cream, and then followed with a foaming cleanser to perfect the skin.

Today, the same benefits hold true. Massaging a cream cleanser like our Kitao Matcha Cleansing Cream into the skin, is step one. The cream binds with makeup, oil, and impurities to leave the skin fresh, soft, and clean, with no greasy residue. This is perfect for all skin types.

Then, use our Kitao Matcha Enzyme Powder and foaming net to create a rich, dense foam. This foam does the work for you, so you shouldn’t even touch your face with your hands. Gently rub the foam over your skin to ensure the most gentle wash. These enzymes cleanse the pores by gently exfoliating while gentle papaya extract brightens and refines. Then, rinse thoroughly with tepid water. You’re on your way to mochi skin!
