Our Founding Story
Mami Mizutani comes from a family where the tradition of soapmaking has been in its imprint for generations. Growing up in Osaka, she was immersed into the Japanese secrets of beauty by watching her mother and grandmother. They blended simple, natural ingredients into their hair and skin routines, and regularly shared their beauty treatments with friends and family.
Fifteen years ago, Mami found herself in Vancouver, Canada and a trip to a garage sale changed her fate. She bought a soapmaking kit and soon found herself following in her grandmother’s footsteps. She started making soap with the time-honoured Japanese ingredients she grew up with. Before Mami knew it, a business was started. The rest is history.

“Mami is always very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Her products are both natural and of good quality. I’ve purchased from her, either from events or through website, for the past 5 years or so. I’ve always enjoyed the soaps she made - natural fragrant and good for keeping my skin moist/hydrated.”

“Wonderfully scented soaps. So nicely packaged. My granddaughter is fascinated with Japan and caring for her skin. I purchased two different soaps. Special gifts for her. Fast shipping and receiving from Canada.”

“I am obsessed with the scent! I used it as a shampoo today and it feels really nice to lather up and now my hair feels really silky. I haven’t tried it on my whole face because I just tried a test wash on my sensitive face but so far it’s looking good. Would buy again!”
