In the West, geisha are known for their intricate stage makeup. In the East however, she is known for the "mochi hada" or "baby skin" beneath her performance makeup. Her rituals are deceptively and brilliantly simple though.
The foundation of her classic beauty ritual is brilliantly effective and deceptively simple — a trio of powerful anti-oxidants, each fulfilling a key role in her regimen:
Green Tea — the healing protector
Rice Bran — the nourishing exfoliant
Okinawa Red Algae — the replenishing moisturizer
These anti-oxidant rich ingredients are at the heart of a diet credited with the extraordinary longevity of the Japanese people.

Extremely rich in Epigallocatechin, Beterhelin and Inositol, these potent extracts work together to nourish and boost the skin's barrier function inside and out. The result is beauty in balance — skin that is pure, polished, radiant and supple.
I have sensitive skin. Can I use these products?

Win win win!No toxic ingredients, no animal testing (I won't buy anything that's been tested on animals), and results you can see! I'm 35 years of age and I have not been blessed with naturally beautiful skin. It's super oily, acne prone, reactive, and sensitive all at the same time. The Tatcha ritual is the first skin care line that has brought results! I can see the difference. My skin is smoother, brighter, calmer, and it actually glows. I'm wearing less foundation since using the Ritual and I love the results I see when I look in the mirror every morning.Read More
At Last - Skincare for Sensitive SkinI've been using the Tatcha Ritual now for 9 months and my sensitive, dry skin has been transformed in ways I didn't think possible. I no longer have dryness, redness and irritation nor dehydrated skin at the end of the day. With just a few products, my skin is finally under control. For those who are making the journey from once-oily skin to drier skin because of the approach of menopause, this is a skincare line to really consider. It consists of 5 steps: cleansing oil, exfoliant, serum and cream plus an eye cream, as the 5th step.Read More
The Cleansing Oil is a godsend, especially if you have trouble tolerating detergent-based cleansers (which seem to grow in number every month at both drugstores and department stores) and can't seem to find a cleanser that will remove your makeup and daily grime without over-stripping your skin. The Cleansing Oil gently removes all of my makeup including eye makeup and mascara with ease and rinses away easily with water, requiring no second cleanser to remove any traces of the cleansing oil. While we are seeing more cleansing oils come into the US market, I have found none that rinses more easily than Tatcha. I find that after rinsing the cleansing oil, my skin is left clean, soothed, soft and hydrated - not greasy.
The rice enzyme powder is another gem because it is nonabrasive, gently exfoliates the skin, making it easy to use daily without irritation. I can truly appreciate this product after having spent years successfully using chemical exfoliants, but no longer being able to once my skin became drier. The gentle version of this product makes it possible for me to use it twice a day after cleansing with the cleansing oil without redness or irritation. And the product container is both luxurious and functional because the sliding tab ensures that the powder doesn't accidentally spill into the top.
I love the Hydrating Serum and the Brightening Serum and apply them after blotting my skin with a towel but still leaving my skin damp. I found a great way to use either one and make sure that my skin could absorb the products. If you are having problems with the serum, creams or Tatcha beauty oil not absorbing quickly or just sitting on your skin, try spritzing thermal water such as Evian, Vichy, Avene or La Roche Posay lightly on your face after applying the serum products, then immediately apply the Tatcha eye cream and the Moisture Rich Silk Cream or the Ageless Renewal Cream as your final step. This will ensure that the products absorb rapidly. This step alone changed my experience of the Tatcha Ritual. I now can use either cream and get the same results: deeply hydrated skin that doesn't dehydrate during the day or night before I wash my face again. In short, by using the thermal water, the products absorb rapidly and the benefits of hydration lasted much longer than without the thermal water.
I would highly recommend this line to anyone with sensitive skin looking for a soothing solution.
46 years to find the right skincareI discovered the cleansing oil and enzyme exfoliant through QVC. The results were so positive that slowly I didn't even need make-up anymore. I immediately incorporated the entire regimen and I am thrilled. The hydration mask is a lovely de-stresser after a long day.Read More
I never really had lines or wrinkles but now my skin is tight and hydrated and I'm getting routine compliments that I don't look my age. A must in the corporate world. Thanks Tatcha!
I had been using LaMer so my skin had been good in the past, but never makeup optional.
Lovely CEO, customer service, ethics, products, and packaging. A definite win and worth every penny.
