Hinoki & Sake
Part of our 7 Seasons Seasonals Line, Hinoki & Sake has been developed for the late-Summer and early-Autumn months. With the Original Moisturiser at its core, it has been blended with Japanese Hinoki (Japanese cypress tree) and sake (the traditional Japanese drink). Harnessing the moisturising power of sake to combat inner dryness and nurture the skin’s ability to retain moisture, this feather-light, fast-absorbing moisturiser helps to calm the skin and repair free radical damage. Take a deep breath, calm your mind and let yourself be enveloped and soothed by its evocative and earthy scent.
In the late summer season, the rhythm of the skin is disturbed by UV rays, reducing its ability to retain water and leaving it susceptible to external stimuli. In the early Autumn, dryness becomes more noticeable and the skin’s ability to retain moisture can easily begin to deteriorate.
Our Hinoki & Sake Moisturiser is made from 98.5% naturally derived materials and harnesses the power of Shonai Bijin sake, made by Watarai Honten in Yamagata Prefecture. Skin-conditioning Rice Ferment Filtrate contains a large amount of the amino acids that make up the skin’s NMF (Natural Moisturising Factor), providing moisture and smoothing the skin. Moisturising Rice Germ Oil contains linoleic acid and gamma-Oryzanol, known for absorbing UV rays and suppressing melanin, which helps reduce redness and skin irritation. Sugar Squalane is moisturising yet light and non-sticky, perfect for the late summer heat.
Japanese Hinoki is said to suppress skin inflammation and support your skin’s health, and moisturising Yuzu Peel Oil is said to promote skin cell turnover.
Calming Japanese Hinoki and Hiba Oil are blended with Citrus Iyo Peel Oil and Wild Mint Oil, creating refreshing top notes of lemon and orange, evolving into middle notes of Japanese summer citrus, finishing with the base note of calming and evocative Hinoki.
For your morning and evening face care routine, post-bathing body care, and regular hand care.
FACE CARE: After toning, gently apply from your face to your neck. We highly recommend applying it generously at night like a mask.
HAND CARE: Use it regularly after washing your hands with soap, using antibacterial hand gel, or even operating your computer for a long time. It replenishes lost moisture and oils due to frequent hand-washing and hand gel usage. The key is to use it regularly!
BODY CARE: This moisturiser can be used as a body cream, protecting your skin from dryness and the strains of summer-sun exposure.

Late Summer to Early Autumn Skin Concerns In the late summer season, the rhythm of the skin is disturbed by UV rays, reducing its ability to retain water and leaving it susceptible to external stimuli. Exposure to strong UV rays disturbs the skin cells’ turnover rhythm, often leading to inner dryness due to the lack of moisture. In the early Autumn, the temperature fluctuates daily. Dryness becomes more noticeable and the skin’s ability to retain moisturise can easily begin to deteriorate. Autumn is when skin fatigue caused by the summer season appears. Even if the skin’s outer surface is moisturised, the skin’s damaged ability to retain water often leads to inner dryness. Let’s ensure we enhance the skin’s ability to retain moisture, preventing instability between the inner and outer moisture balance of the skin.
