Established in 1973, Japan's first cosmetic dermatology clinic, Dr. Ishii Medical Esthetic Salon, was opened in Aoyama, Tokyo by dermatologist Dr. Reijiro Ishii.
Dr. Ishii became the chief consulting physician for major cosmetic brands, such as Kanebo and Max Factor, and he was behind the development of SK-II and its bestselling Facial Treatment Essence.
Putting smiles on the faces of those suffering from skin concerns: this is Dr. Ishii's wish, which has not changed for over 40 years.
"Smile is the best beauty essence"
The BEAUTY LABO line is produced using only high quality ingredients that are carefully selected from a medical perspective, making this series the perfect fusion of medicine and skin care. These products are intended to raise the quality standard of at-home skin care to that of medical grade treatments offered at professional salons.
While masks have become necessities in our daily lifestyles, we desired to address skin concerns from mask wearing head-on for our patents. We searched for ideas from a cosmetic dermatology perspective. We focused on creating a more comfortable environment for the skin and to aim for a more beautiful complexion. The resulting idea was to both partake in skin care while removing friction between mask and skin, an approach we call "InMask Salon".
For years, Dr. Ishii utilized fermentation metabolites in his practice and believed in the power of such natural products.
He especially believed in NAKAMURAKIN®︎, a specific strain of yeast isolated by Nakamura’s Fungus, a sake brewery-turned-manufacturer of biological products established over 160 years ago in Kyoto. The FINGGY MASK®︎ Serum is unique because it contains NAKAMURAKIN®︎ Essence, which utilizes NAKAMURAKIN®︎'s key characteristic of optimal fermentation exclusively in Otowa water, sourced from the Kiyomizu-dera temple in Kyoto, as the growth medium.
