Our products come from four raw materials imported directly from Japan: Uji green tea, Japanese Matatabi kiwi, Eijitsu multiflora rose, and Ume Japanese apricot. Four exotic botanicals for one new skin. Why four? Four is the symbolic number of the physical world, that is, of our planet and of all living beings. Our products respect the cycles of nature and tradition.
Spring is within you.
UME EXTRACT, JAPANESE APRICOT
Prunus mume leaf extract
Ume extract improves skin tone and elasticity and reduces the signs of aging.
A story of beauty
In Japan, the observation of flowers was an aristocratic tradition and celebrated the arrival of spring, of rebirth. The flower of Ume was a symbol, expressed in pictorial art and poetry. We buy Ume from the Wakayama region which, since the Edo period (17th-19th century), is the number one producer in Japan. During the flowering season its majestic landscape is described as 'millions of trees captured in a single glance with a floral scent that lasts for ten miles.
UJI LEAF EXTRACT, JAPANESE GREEN TEA
Camelia sinensis leaf extract
Uji extract has antioxidant and anti erythema qualities.
Let's start with the fifth element of taste
Uji tea from Kyoto is the most prestigious in Japan. In May, its leaves produce the highest concentration of sweetness and umami flavors, the fifth element of taste, so its buds are expertly covered by reeds (Ooshita Saibai) to protect them.
JAPANESE MATATABI KIWY LEAF EXTRACT
Actinidia polygama fruit extract
Matatabi extract improves skin brightness and texture.
The kiwy in Japan was a fruit linked to travelers who ate it to revitalize and strengthen themselves. In early summer, its leaves turn white to attract pollinating insects.
JAPANESE ROSE EIJITSU MULTIFLORA
Rosa multiflora fruit extract
Rose multiflora extract reduces the appearance of pores.
The Eijitsu Rose characteristically carries a cluster of flowers on a single stem and represents multiple approaches to the complexity of problems. In autumn it matures into a deep red thus giving the best of itself.
