The glowing skin and flowing hair unique to Anko, the camellia harvesting women of Oshima Island, were a mystery to most outsiders. But not to the geisha, who have used this oil for centuries to remove perform­ance makeup without stripping skin. It is one of their greatest secrets - used for centuries to ensure optimal health of hair, nails and skin, camellia oil is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, and very mild on the skin. Centuries of experience have created the perfect cleanser for your everyday beauty routine.

  • The perfect cleanser

    I've cleansed with oil before, but the "One-Step" factor of this cleanser takes it to the next level. It's so comfortable on the skin, cleanses away all make-up, dirt, and oil, and rinses away completely clean with out having to wipe away with a face cloth. I have very oily, acne prone, sensitive skin, and I wouldn't use anything else to cleanse my face.

  • Just wow!

    This thing means business in the most gentle way. Sounds odd but it's true! I have oily skin & this has helped reduce my daily natural oil production. It also gives me a beautiful glow in the morning since I use it at night. And although I hardly wear makeup, I get excited to go home & wash it off with the cleansing oil. It doesn't only remove the makeup but it makes it VANISH! I massage my face and there is NO trace of any makeup. Even though this is an oil it rinsed off wonderfully. Never tried any oil on my skin & this bad boy has changed my mind.

  • Happy face, happy place

    This product is amazing. I have always taken good care of my skin, but over the last few years it has become increasingly sensitive. I tried a lot of different products, at a variety of price points, but still could not find anything suitable. When I finally found Tatcha, I was pretty skeptical because it seemed like I was just not going to be happy with my skin ever again. I'm delighted to be wrong. It has been so long since my skin has looked this good… healthy and radiant and blissfully happy!! Gentle, easy to use, and 100% effective at removing makeup, this cleanser walks the walk. I use it every day with the Classic Rice Enzyme Powder and my skin glows. Thank you Tatcha… I finally found my happy face happy place :)
