In 1986, a celebrated Japanese actress became concerned about her stressed skin. Depleted from hours spent in heavy makeup each day, her skin lacked the fresh glow she craved. Inspired by her need and the deeply rooted skincare traditions of her country, she began work on a line of pure and healthy skincare designed to deliver radiant skin on and off-screen. Soon she extended the benefits of skincare into a color cosmetics line and our iconic, red-tubed Moisture Foundation was born.
