Why It Works

The Polished Rice Enzyme Powders provide non-abrasive daily exfoliation to create a smooth, makeup-ready canvas. Rice and papaya enzymes delivered in a creamy, rich foam soften, exfoliate, and gently release debris, promoting healthy, natural skin turnover to instantly reveal glowing, baby-soft skin. Hadasei-™, a trio of anti-aging Japanese superfoods — green tea, rice and algae — helps restore youthful radiance. Daily use helps to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation.

Each Rice Enzyme Powder contains active ingredients tailored to your skin type's needs:

  • Classic (best for normal/combination/dry skin): Nourishes and conditions with crushed pearl extract.
  • Deep (best for combination/oily skin): Japanese wild rose diminishes the look of pores and refines skin texture, while Japanese leopard lily clarifies skin and helps prevent breakouts.
  • Gentle (best for dry skin): Licorice Root extract moisturizes and helps prevent tightness.
  • Indigo (best for sensitive skin): Natural Japanese Indigo calms and soothes easily irritated and inflamed skin.


Ideal for normal, combination/dry and dry skin. Non-irritating. Non-sensitizing. Dermatologist tested. Cruelty-free.
Formulated without:
Mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, urea, DEA, TEA or phthalates.


​Tatcha’s trinity of anti-aging superfoods reveals soft, youthful skin.

Uji Green Tea

Prized throughout Japan as the purest, finest source of Green Tea, this powerful antioxidant-rich botanical from Kyoto is known to detoxify and prevent signs of premature aging.

Okinawa Mozuku Algae

This sea treasure from Japan’s tropical islands is rich in polysaccharides, essential for skin water retention and renewal.

Akita Rice

This rice is known as the finest rice in Japan for its superior taste and quality. It is also a nourishing moisturizer, rich in essential proteins.

How To Use

Suggested Usage

Begin with wet hands and face. Pour 1/2 teaspoon of powder into hands and rub together to create a creamy foam. Gently massage onto face for 15 seconds, avoiding the eye area. Rinse with warm water. For best results, use after the Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is MAGIC! I can NOT believe how SOFT and smooth my skin is from a GENTLE hand washing of my face. I am stunned. I couldn't wait to have my man feel my face after I washed it, have him try it on his face, and to wake up the next morning JUST so I could hop in the shower to use it on my neck and face again! The tiny little bumps that have always been on the bridge of my nose are GONE, what!? Yes they are and I've only used it twice. I will never be without this magic potion again. As soon as I was rinsing my face THE FIRST time I used it I could FEEL how soft my face was, it was like the softest rose petal, I SWEAR it's true! GET SOME OF THIS STUFF!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you! All of the Tatcha products are wonderful. This is the first brand in so many years that I haven't had reactions to. I read about the coming Indigo line and the problem areas it is targeting. I have been suffering a severe illness for many years and must take a lot of medications. The result being very sensitive skin. After using the Indigo Rice Enzyme Powder for only four days I noticed a lessening of redness. The light rashes were improving also. After using the Indigo cleanser there is a comforted feeling to my skin. It is very soothing. My skin keeps improving over time. Thanks to Tatcha for creating products for all skin concerns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle and effective I am 48 years old, and have been exfoliating my skin consistently for years. I started using Clarisonic a couple of years ago, and just never really was 100% impressed with it. Add that to growing sensitivity, and I just couldn't find the right 'fit' for my skin. Enter Tatcha. I use the Camellia Oil and the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder every day, and my skin hasn't looked this good in years. Exfoliation with this product is gentle and effective - not the least bit abrasive, but wow, does it work. My skin is soft and radiant, and just feels good…. like its happy and healthy. No looking back, this is my happy face happy place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search is over! I've tried a seemingly countless amount of exfoliants since my teenage years. My skin always looked worse after using exfoliants with any sort of scrubbing agent. Now at age 35, the buck stops with the Rice Enzyme Powder. I have very oily, acne prone skin, that is also sensitive, so (with the guidance of the Tatcha consultants) I opted for the Indigo Soothing Rice Powder as step 2 of my Tatcha Ritual. It exfoliates without damaging or drying. My pores are cleaner than ever, and it also calms my reactive skin! Other products claim they'll make a difference and that you'll see results. Tatcha actually delivers results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indigo is from the Gods Indigo is from the Gods ....I love it so much! I have very annoying skin , it really is fussy , and I have used a number of different products on it , expensive and not so much, and none of them corrected my skin . I moved for 12 months , from mild to extreme weather, and thought my skin would just fall off with the cold.....in comes Tatcha and.... voila! It IMPROVED ....really , I am so happy with your amazing enzyme powder . And another thing , I was always rushing , but now, when I wash my face, the word "ritual" comes into my mind, I slow down, breathe and use slow massaging movements to wash my face- it is so relaxing....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am happy and impressed First, let me say that I am just shy of age 65. I had a grainy powder cleanser about 40 years ago and loved it but it was discontinued. So, I purchased the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder initially because I wanted to add this type of cleanser back in my daily beauty regime. Tatcha's Classic Rice Enzyme Powder is perfect for me. I am so happy with the results and will absolutely purchase it again. I also love the fact that it isn't a problem with my take on luggage for air travel because it is not a liquid. I highly recommend the product and entire Tatcha experience. The products and Tatcha people are special!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've tried the rest...but this one is best! I've bounced between all of the rice enzyme powders Tatcha has to offer and I have found that this formula is the best for my skin. I'm in my mid-30s and have very sporadic breakouts along the jawline. I can go for months with nothing and then all of a sudden, it's a non-stop barrage of pimples. As I said earlier, I've tried them all. But I truly believe that this helps resolve those breakouts faster, with minimal drying and discomfort to me. And during those pimple-free periods, this formula is still exactly what I need. Thanks to Tatcha, you no longer have to sacrifice a phenomenal cleanser for a gentle formula. This one is everything you need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How I got my GLOW back I'm 47 and the glowing skin I had when I was younger is back! I just follow the instructions--though I do use this with the Tatcha brush set because it makes the most glorious lather with this powder and I can gently buff my skin. I went through a pretty severe (for me) purge cycle along with some flaky dryness when I first started using this, so I eased it back to every-other-night while that was going on. It only lasted about 1 1/2 weeks and that's the product working as intended, an enzyme-exfoliant is gonna exfoliate! I'm so glad I stuck with it. I now use this every night and my skin is SO soft, SO glowing, and back to the "normal" category. I'll keep buying this as long as Tatcha makes it!

Do you use this cleanser at night or the morning? Also, if you only use it once a day what do you use for the other time of day?

Asked by: Jessix
Hi Jessix, That is a great question! Our Polish Rice Enzyme Powder is recommended to use every day, twice a day. Please consider using our Camellia Cleansing Oil first to remove any makeup or oily residue before exfoliating with this powder. Always, TATCHA

Hi there, if I use this daily, can I/should I still use a once a week chemical exfoliater with AHA/BHA/PHA? Many thanks

Asked by: Caron
Thanks for your question! You should feel free to use another chemical exfoliator, however, we suggest alternating its use with the Enzyme Powder. For example, if you apply your chemical exfoliator in the evening, skip your Enzyme Powder and use it in the morning instead. We hope this helps!

Hi. I was wondering if this is a chemical or physical exfoliator ? Do you have any physical exfoliators?

Asked by: Luisemk
Hi Luisemk! Great question. This beautiful treasure is an extremely gentle water-activated enzymatic (chemical) exfoliator. Our Deep Cleanse is a daily gel cleanser with Japanese Luffa fruit fibers that provides a soft and gentle physical exfoliation.
