Japanese Beauty Secrets since 1899.

Since 1899, women working at the Yoshitaka Gold-Leaf Foundry in Kanazawa have seized the makanai* they had at disposal in the foundry’s kitchen to create their own beauty concoctions in order to heal their skin. These recipes based on green tea, rice bran and gold powder have then been passed on from generation to generation.

Through its range of natural skincare products, Makanai Cosmetics pays tribute to the women of Kanazawa and transmits us the secrets of Japanese beauty rituals, fruits of ancestral know-how and the rich resources offered by Japanese nature.

*In Japanese, “makanai” refers to the “materials available at the workplace”.
