How did SEKKISEI get its start?

SEKKISEI was created in Japan in 1985 based on the concept of applying centuries-old wisdom in herbal medicine to skincare. The brand sought to combine multiple herbal ingredients in formulas that improve and maintain the skin’s fundamental condition through everyday use. This led to the creation of SEKKISEI’s “translucency” recipe, with over 100 carefully selected types of plants, for more luminous, almost translucent skin.

SEKKISEI launched with its signature product, SEKKISIE Lotion. It’s the brand’s most popular product both in Japan and globally. 61.5M bottles* have been sold since 1985.
