TATCHA

Luxury skincare inspired by Geisha beauty rituals

Tatcha is a global luxury beauty and lifestyle company founded in 2009. A chance encounter with a modern-day geisha in Kyoto inspired founder Vicky Tsai to create a skincare collection based on the geisha's generations-old beauty rituals. In her research, Tsai unearthed a 200-year old beauty manuscript, detailing the timeless ingredients and practices of the geisha. Tsai worked with teams of scientists and researchers in Japan and the U.S. to bring the formulas to life with time-tested ingredients like Green Tea, Japanese Rice Brand and Okinawa Red Algae .
