Makanai Cosmetics - A ‘Gold Standard’ Japanese Souvenir

Makanai Cosmetics - A ‘Gold Standard’ Japanese Souvenir

This famous Japanese skincare brand was born from the spirit and ingenuity of the women working as traditional gold beaters. They worked in a harsh environment, often exposing their skin to high temperatures, causing dryness and damage. They knew that they needed a heavy-duty skin care regimen to keep up with the extreme conditions of their workplace. These ladies harnessed the knowledge gained at their workplace, their homes and kitchen through a trial-and-error process called makanai to make skin care products that lived up to their high standards. This became the birth of the brand called Makanai Cosmetics.

Among the popular items limited to Narita Airport is the shop’s Karakuri Magic Facial Blotting Paper. It gently removes facial oil and comes with unique prints and patterns at the airport, featuring airplanes and cabin crew members. The set of five is also a very popular souvenir.
