Organic and Natural Cosmetics The Hottest Trend in the Japanese Beauty Industry!
Natural and organic cosmetics - for people looking to help both their skin and Mother Nature!
Today we talk with Cosme Kitchen, a natural and organic cosmetic specialty store. With nine stores in Tokyo and 18 total throughout Japan, they are one of the leaders of the natural and organic cosmetic craze. We ask Saori Takahashi, manager of the Yurakucho store, what natural and organic cosmetics are, and why they’re so popular.
“While there are other cosmetics that use the active ingredients found in natural plants besides natural and organic cosmetics, the difference is that natural and organic cosmetics are all natural, even using all natural preservatives. Cosme Kitchen only sells products that have been certified by organic certification bodies as having safe and wholesome ingredients, that follow fair trade rules, that weren’t tested on animals, and that are environmentally friendly.”
Around 2004 or 2005, Japan started focusing on keywords like “eco” and “LOHAS,” which is how natural and organic cosmetics first gained attention. But what are the benefits of these highly popular items?
“Natural and organic cosmetics are often said to bring out your body’s own healing power. Many who come to our store are drawn to this point. But it’s not just that; these products are a favorite among women who really want their skin to look its best.”
“I use natural and organic cosmetics as well, and once I started using them I got into yoga. I started focusing on holistic ways to get beautiful. A lot of these products excite the senses as well with cute packaging and pleasing scents. And the best part is, using them makes me happy.”
Women should definitely check these products out. Find out what products are popular at your local store and make your natural and organic cosmetic debut. Many people feel safer using Japanese brands, so ask a local retailer for more information!
