The fact that it clearly states the proportion of Japanese ingredients was also interesting,” (Ninako Komiya, head of Mitsukoshi Ebisu department store, owned by department store major Isetan Mitsukoshi), “It has a great balance of characteristics, texture, and price. I was very impressed by the way it leveraged the various anti-aging effects of Yamatocha extract,” (Tomomi Fujita, manager at drugstore major Tomod’s).
