Through our extensive research, we’ve found that Shikuwasa can be an incredibly beneficial component of skincare and provide numerous benefits such as supporting skin barrier functions and moisturizing young skin*.
Not only that, but its peel extract is high in polyphenols (flavonoids) and has positive effects on the skin as well as other parts of the body.
* In vitro.

MOISTURE CHARGE YUZU-C

WASO YUZU-C moisture line uses "Yuzu-Complex" to help maintain skin's moisture levels*. This complex contains fruit extract from Yuzu cultivated in the sunny coastal hills of Nakayama, Kochi, as well as Yuzu seed extract which helps maintain skin’s moisture levels*.

Our Promise

SUSTAINABILTY

WASO is aiming to create exciting, clean and sustainably packaged products that not only fundamentally improve skin’s condition from within but also feel amazing and are beautifully textured to bring out natural beauty in everyone while helping support a sustainable future.

  • Our Promise to Skin
    We strive to make our products WASO clean, which is why we say no to unwanted ingredients.
    WASO is about fundamentals, focusing on maximizing the benefits of what’s proven to work and leaving out unnecessary bells and whistles.
  • Our Promise to Nature
    We prioritize recycling and upcycling to minimize waste.
    For example, we use upcycled water from apple juice production to reduce our overall water consumption.
  • Our Promise to People
    We work together with farmers to help revitalize local economies.

Our Honesty Policies

  • Clean Formula

    WASO Clean means that we exclude the unwanted and maximize what’s proven to be good for skin & the environment.

    Excluding the UNWANTED & Maximizing the GOOD

    Each ingredient in our formulas has gone through our rigorous and strict WASO “CLEAN 5 check” to make sure that only the best ingredients are used.

    WASO “CLEAN 5” Check

    A strict examination system based on 5 safety criteria: 1. purity, 2. origins, 3. allergenicity, 4. toxicity, and 5. environment.

  • Only Scented by Botanical Extracts

    The WASO lineup is scented only by the botanical extracts used in our formulas to bring nature’s benefits to your skin.

  • Clinical Efficacy

    The skin efficacy of our products is clinically proven by inhouse and 3rd party labs, showing significant and visible improvement in skin concerns after testing.

  • Food Grade Raw Materials

    Our Yuzu, Shikuwasa Lime, Satokibi Satocane and Koshihikari Rice are Japanese ingredients that comply with food-grade level standards.

  • Vegan

    Our products do not use any animal derived ingredients and are in line with Shiseido’s animal welfare policy.

  • Give Back

    By working with local farmers, we hope to contribute to and support the livelihoods of Shikuwasa farmers as well as help the Shikuwasa region grow. Our key ingredients are also 100% traceable. We are able to track our full production cycle of Yuzu, Shikuwasa, Satokibi and Koshihikari.

  • Water Saving Formula*

    We’ve managed to help reduce the amount of water used in production by recycling water from apple juice distillation back into our production chain.

  • Recycled

    Pushing for sustainability, our packaging features 95% recycled plastic for its outer jar.

  • Upcycled

    We believe in the power of transformation; therefore,
    the outer cap of our sustainable packaging is made
    with 30% upcycled rice husk**.

  • Reuse

    The use of a refill jar reduces plastic use by 89% compared with purchasing a new jar***.

* Using upcycled apple water except for spot treatment.
** Except for Tinted spot treatment.
*** Calculated by weight of plastic saved by not purchasing a new jar.

Our Sustainable Package Story

We’ve worked diligently to make sure that every material used in our packaging is selected consciously and with sustainability in mind.

REDUCING PLASTIC USAGE

Outer caps made from 30% rice husk

Through our extensive research, we found that the normally discarded rice husks can be reused as a vegetal material and substitute for plastic in our caps.

95% recycled plastic for outer jar

In order to reduce the plastic usage, WASO’s outer jars are made using 95% recycled plastic.

10% plant derived plastic elements for tube

The use of sugarcane-derived polyethylene, produced from discarded sugarcane molasses, avoids plastic production competition with food production and emits less CO2 during the manufacturing and disposal stages.

WASO’s Water Saving Formula

As we looked for ways to make our production more sustainable, we looked at water usage as a starting point. Usually, when apple juice is made, the water that is left behind after the distillation and concentration process is mostly discarded. WASO has found an innovative way to upcycle the water that is a byproduct of apple juice production primarily in Aomori, Japan through water purification. Once purified, we can incorporate this water into our production to avoid the use of fresh and new water as much as possible. With our goal to reduce and reuse as much as possible in the production of WASO, we vow to use water as effectively and efficiently as possible.
* Using upcycled apple water except for spot treatment.

WASO LOCAL REVITALIZATION
PROJECT

Beautiful Nature. Beautiful Skin.
WASO promotes clean beauty through ecologically enriching agriculture. This nature-driven skincare starts with SHIKUWASA, a citrus fruit celebrated for its health benefits. And now, we donate a portion of sales to provide seedlings through the WASO LOCAL REVITALIZATION PROJECT.
It's our love of nature that inspires beauty. Join us in protecting our environment.

USE 89% LESS PLASTIC
