That's why Geisha shave
Even for men, when shaving, as the moisture content and oil content of the skin increase, by shaving facial hair, the face color becomes brighter. However, shaving is not only for men and it is actually popular also with Japanese women. Geisha in particular shaves regularly. In the case of women, not only does the complexion brighten, but also the absorption rate of the lotion increases and it keeps the moisture rich texture. In addition, when it is combined with a face massage, the absorption rate of oil will also increase, so nutrients will penetrate more deeply into the skin. Also, by removing the old keratin firmly, cosmetics are easy to apply. This is why the geisha shaves regularly. For geisha, it is necessary to apply white paint firmly to the face and shaving the face prevents smeared make up. These days, not only Geisha, but also women in any profession which always requires makeup also shave regularly.
Strong preferences for Japanese tools and own product development

For example, to apply lather, the brush is made from high quality raccoon hair and the soap is also made in Japan. In addition, in the long history of the shop, things like shampoo and conditioner which are good for the hair have also developed in-house in order to offer customers better products.
