Remarkably mild, all-around Japanese traditional soap for beautifying and revitalizing skin. Rich, creamy lather.
Helps condition skin and clear blemishes, darkened pores and age-spots. Also used to alleviate dryness and itchy skin.
Made with wild-harvested yomogi leaves. Refreshing natural essential oil (cineole) gives off a fresh, spring-like fragrance.
All natural. Additive free.
Recommended For: All skin types

Japanese have known the skin-beautifying and numerous other benefits of Yomogi leaves for centuries. Besides soap, they also use it for bathing (Yomogi Yu), making tea (Yomogi Cha) and even to make sweet rice cakes called Yomogi mochi.
Yomogi is a member of the chrysanthemum family, also known as the Japanese mugwort (Artemisia princeps). Its extract is extensively used by leading cosmetics companies in a large variety of skincare products.
Yomogi leaves contain anti-inflammatory essential oils including cineole, vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorus.

Gentle and moisturizing, and unscented so it doesn't set off my migraines! I was skeptical about using soap on my dry skin instead of a creamy face wash, but this is gentle enough for me. I use it with the Biwako traditional washcloth and my skin is very happy.

This is the best soap I’ve ever used on my skin… and somehow I knew it already before that it would be, just seeing it on the website. Not because I red many positive reviews, but because of the ingredients. Curious, me too I come from a years-long story with the African Black soap, it was the only cleanser that my skin accepted(it’s a very ‘freakish’ skin!!), but stayed a tiny bit too dryed, while the Yomogi is perfect! Also the consistency is way better – while the African is very soft and messy, the Yomogi bar is nicely solid. Well this was certainly “love at first glance” with this soap, and will last, will last loooong….. :-):-)

I absolutely adore this soap! It is very mild but cleans very thoroughly. I was using African black soap before for my face and it would sting and I would still get alot of pimples. Now my acne has gone down to practically nonexistent (would be nonexistent if I would stop having those lazy days where I just fall into bed without washing my face) and my skin tone is getting much better! It is also really good for any rashes. Plus it is green and I love green!

It does what it describes, it has left my skin feeling very smooth and has helped in clearing some red spots i had left from acne. it's only been a week so far, so i'm hoping that it'll continue on clearing it all as times goes on in combination with the bijin moisturizer. Will order more :)

Been using the soap for about a week. It's really is non-drying despite that it lathers well. Works better if you chop off a tiny piece and lather it in your hands. I have very dry skin so moisturizing with only Carmelia oil is not enough for me since even with just water as a cleanser I still need a moisturizer. No breakouts yet. I don't think you can find a milder soap.

I love the subtle smell of this soap. It's relaxing, and not too powerful!
I use it daily and it makes my skin happy. Like I feel so clean, but not a squeaky or grimy clean, just soft and nourished clean.
Bottom line, I love this soap! I'd recommend it to anyone.
Thanks, Wawaza! <3

Regularly used this refreshingly naural soap leaved my skin pure, already dimished a part of my pigemnted spot and helped me getting an evenly and brighter hue of facial skin colour.
I absolutely love the gentle feeling when the soap touches my skin! It cleanes the face and soothes the mind.

I ordered the Yomogi soap as a compromise with my fiance, as he refuses to give up using soap (over shower gels etc) but wasn't keen on the "sumi" type. Since we've started using it, not only have I not received any complaints, but his skin which was suffering from the dry winter here has gradually gotten better (in combination with Aya Camellia oil!). I also use it and find my skin is perfectly balanced - not too dy, not too oily - even in winertime. It's also a welcome change from the strong smell of commercial soaps he was using before. It has a very mild, almost undetectable scent that I like very much.

First of all, thank you for recommending this gem! Your customer service was really helpful :D It really is a wonder herb! The smooth and moisturized feeling it leaves is very pleasant, also it has already healed my big acne XD
I had a little trouble when using it for the first time though (blame my sensitive skin for this!). I rubbed it directly onto my face and I felt like being scratched O_O (maybe because it's natural therefore its surface is not as smooth as commercial soaps). But after that I knew how to use it properly XD Instead of my direct face, I rub it onto my palms and let the lathers do its wonderful job!

I was so impressed by this soap. It leaves your skin feeling soft and buttery but not oily. Non-drying and so gentle. It had an amazing soothing affect on my skin. I want to use it all the time now. I have never liked a soap this much! Yomogi is incredible.
