A white translucent effect with white strawberries! Japan's first high-tech organic cosmetics.
WHITE ICHIGO is made with white strawberry extract from a cutting-edge farm in Yamamoto town, Miyagi Prefecture, Tohoku’s best strawberry-producing area.
White strawberries contain polyphenol and vitamin C, which augments the brightness and translucence.
Hybrid organic cosmetics use a combination of high-performance components with organic extracts of white strawberries, thyme and lavender, to achieve maximum gentleness and comfort for the skin.
Free from synthetic colorings, synthetic perfumes and parabens.
The White Strawberry motif on the packaging is also cute, is it not? ♡
WHITE ICHIGO Organic Tech Essence (toning lotion)
Strawberry soap with polyphenols to smooth the skin. ♡
Ichi-pori lathering soap
The surviving Yamamoto strawberry plantations that survived the Tohoku 2011 earthquake have collaborated with a Hyogo-based cosmetics company with an aim towards “self-reliant reconstruction”, and thus the “Ichi-pori lathering soap” was born.
This soap contains strawberry extract polyphenols, effective in beautifying the skin.
The kneading action produces a thick lather very effective in removing dirt while it moisturises, resulting in clear, luminous skin.
