<“Gofun” nail polish by Uebaesou>


UEBAESOU, the oldest Japanese paint company, was established in 1751. After being on their paint business for almost 260 years, they created a whole new product: nail polish. It is handmade like their authentic paints, and “gofun” is still an important material in their nail polish. It is a Japanese traditional pigment, of which the main component is calcium carbonate; made from scallop shell, powdered, elutriated and then dried.

<The colors (※you’ve got one of these ※Can’t choose these ※Random)>

Representing the Japanese red, this color is used for shrines and lacquer products.
N0040水藤(wisteria on the water)
Known by the name “Japanese wisteria,” this soft purple with blue note has admired women of all times.
Indigo has been a highly popular color in Japan, partly because its old pronunciation resembles that of “victory.”
N0050鶯緑(nightingale green)
Appearing in the Japanese document first in 910AD, nightingales has their name in this traditional color for 150 years.
N0045桃花色(Peach Flower)
Peach flowers remind us of the “girls’ day” in March that we celebrate with them, and our longing for the arrival of spring.

<When you use…>
This gofun nail polish is water-soluble, which makes it very easy for you to put on, and quick to dry in just 1-2min. For the same reason, you can take it off with some rubbing alcohol as well. Your nails can breathe. No bad smell😉
To take the nail polish off: first, put alcohol-saturated cotton puff on your nail and leave it for a while, then take the color off by transferring it into the cotton puff. Don’t rub. Please put your nail in the lukewarm water to soften the nail polish when you find it hard to take off. Store the nail polish in a place between 5℃ to 35℃.

<Komenuka cream by Mamy Sango>


Not just sushi, but in all aspects of Japanese life lies RICE (kome). In north Kyushu, rice farming started as early as B.C. 2-3 century, and as it spread over Japan, there developed the first villages and small nations. Rice has been used as a currency, and paid as tax for a long time. Komenuka (rice bran) has been used in many ways, too. We make pickles, rice oil, detergent, fertilizer, & COSMETICS. And the modern chemistry tells us that rice bran has a lot of nutritions that all work for our skin…

So what’s good about komenuka? For the cosmetic use, the best ingredients are vitamins B1 & B2 (lighten skin spots) and vitamin E which prevents skin aging. But it doesn’t end there! Rice bran also has calcium, iron, potassium, protein, vitamin A, niacin, and minerals. They work differently, but all good for your skin. This butter-like cream contains camellia oil, cacao fat and jojoba oil, aside from this great komanuka oil. Named after Maikos, this cream makes you like a beautiful Maiko, who brightens up her skin with komenuka. *This product is scented with natural orange.

<Washi-inspired “Riguru” face mask>

In Tosa dialect, “riguru” means to pay great care/conscience, and also to dress up fine. Riguru face mask is inspired by washi (Japanese paper), which Tosa (current Kochi) has been famous for. Already in 927A.D., Tosa was listed to make paper for the imperial government in Kyoto. Today, Tosa washi is nationally-designated important intangible cultural property, and one of three famous washi production sites along with Echizen and Mino. Riguru face mask is made with great passion on this traditional Tosa washi.

<Face mask with history>
楮(Kozo, belongs to fig family) is central to washi making: kozo makes the paper stronger, softer and well-absorbing. So washi made from kozo has long been used by maikos and others who work in traditional performances for the cosmetic use. However, the aging of population, depopulation and the hard production process led to huge decrease in kozo production. Sansai, which created this Riguru face mask, has decided to restore fine Tosa kozo, and succeeded in growing kozo at their plants. Some processes are automated, reducing the burdens of people who work in the industry.

<Your skin pleaser>
It has already been mentioned that paper with kozo is good for your skin. Riguru face mask sheet is 3 layered with kozo, rayon, and pulp. This fearless trio makes the sheet firmly and evenly hold the moisture, and leaves no space between your skin so that your skin can absorb as much nutritions as it can👍
Of course, Riguru face mask is not just about the paper! Its concentrate is FREE of perfume, coloring, alcohol and petroleum surfactant agent. And it DOES contain collagen, keratin, deep ocean water, and “wakan” herbal extract, from Yoshino cherry leaves, ginger, tealeaf, soybean, white birch sap, etc. “Wakan” herbs have been used in our traditional medicine for more than 1,500 years: they started being used in China around 3,000B.C., and there are some developments in Japan, too.

Water, BG, glycerol, cordyceps sinensis extract, soluble collagen, soybean extract, keratin, sea water, white birch sap, hydrolyzed keratin, saxifraga sarmentosa extract, prun yedoensis leaf extract, camellia sinensis leaf extract, fermented soy milk, hydrolyzed collagen, ginger root extract, placental protein, potassium hydroxide, carbomer, methylparaben, phenoxyethanol, ethylparaben (all ingredients listed above).
