The founder: Shinji Yamasaki, CEO of Re:erth.
His background: The Yamasaki family owns several distributorships for international health and beauty brands such as Imedeen, and has extensive connections in the skincare industry in Japan.
After a career in finance, Yamasaki joined the family business, using its ready access to world-class formulators to develop efficacious skincare.
The brand: Re:erth combines the Japanese zen way of life with cutting-edge technology. Its promise: powerful yet unfussy products to give you smooth and plump “mochi skin”.
To that end, Yamasaki acquired patents to some of the most powerful actives for Re:erth’s exclusive use – a feat for a small independently-owned brand.
Its exclusive ingredients include Japanese white turmeric which grows only in the Kyushu region.
The roots of this plant are commonly used to make a health-boosting tea, but researchers found that the leaf and root extracts made a powerful combination which helps suppress melanin production and accelerate skin-cell regeneration.
Here are some popular Re:erth products, including one that promises to give you “mochi skin”.
