We approach ingredients in a very Japanese way. Our goal is to create harmony. We don’t put anything in that doesn’t belong. We believe in the “less is more” concept of “ma” and approach formulation the same. When there is clutter, valuable ingredients lose their value. It is not just what is in the bottle, but also, what is not. While many cosmetic chemists rely on ingredients, like silicones, to deliver smoothness and slip, we do not. We focus on natural ingredients, the highest quality raw materials, and state of the art technologies. Chosen ingredients must meet superior standards and deliver product performance, innovation, safety, sensuality, and quiet luxury.
