Four Chic Organic Japanese Beauty Brands and Organic Spas in Tokyo

Guides Health Tokyo Life - July 14th, 2016

Last month we rounded up five secret Japanese ingredients and related products that can help make your skin more beautiful. This month, organic skincare steals the spotlight as we look at our current four favorite Japanese organic ranges, and four spas in Tokyo for a mini organic getaway.

F Organics

The brand: Aiming to bring a touch of elegance into Japan’s organic beauty world, F Organics features sophisticated packaging and luxurious textures. Founded by Yoko Tagami, the brand’s focus is on anti-ageing and hormonal balance, and all the skincare products feature four active natural ingredients: cotton thistle, damask rose, pomegranate, and frankincense oil. Using the latest botanical technology, F Organics encourages a healthier balance and, as a result, brighter, firmer, smoother skin.

What to try: Moisture Cleansing Cream (¥4,104), Moisture Lotion (¥4,104), Moisture Cream (¥5,076). Also look out for their summer body kit, which debuted in June 2016.


Do Organic

The brand: Created with sensitive skin in mind, Do Organic is one of the most popular Japanese organic brands on the market. More than 95 percent of its plant-based materials are certified as organic, and it features rice bran extract as a main ingredient. The promise? Improved elasticity and firmness, a more even skin tone, and protection against harsh environmental elements.

What to try: Washing Mousse (¥3,240) featuring honey and licorice extracts, and a fresh rose scent; Enrich Cream Advanced (¥6,480) featuring avocado oil, oat extract, chamomile flower oil, and rosemary oil.



The brand: Created in Tokyo, Ruhaku takes inspiration from Okinawan traditions and herbs. Their three main ingredients are gettou, a herb from the ginger family that’s known for its antibacterial qualities; shekwasha, which is a citrus fruit that helps to prevent cell damage and sunspots; and sea grapes (aka green caviar), which are rich in minerals and vitamins, and are naturally moisturizing.

What to try: Gettou Night Repair Oil (¥3,960) featuring rosehip oil, pomegranate seed oil, and frankincense; Shekwasha Brightening Essence (¥4,950) to help uneven skin tone and clogged pores.



The brand: A favorite of Asian beauty editors, this range is possibly the closest thing to an “It” brand in the Japanese organic beauty market. It benefits from sleek, modern branding that extends through to its store interiors, and its flagship shop in Aoyama includes a healthy dining space and a spa (see Rhythm Spa below). Using local ingredients including tea seed oil from Aomori and yuzu seed oil from Kochi, the brand takes a holistic approach and focuses on balancing and strengthening the whole body.

What to try: Point Makeup Remover (¥2,800) featuring richly formulated natural oils and a beautiful yellow-and-white double layer that turns a milky lemon color when shaken; Balancing Cleansing Oil (¥4,000) featuring oils such as frankincense, bergamot fruit, rosemary, and sweet orange.
