As an expert in the spa industry with 20 years of experiences in providing skincare, body care, relaxation, wellness programs to clients, we have developed our original skincare brand UMUI which use ingredients from Japan’s nature. UMUI is a fusion of traditional evidences and the most advanced science which are suitable for spa treatments, skincare at home, hotel amenities.
Since our foundation as the first spa company in Japan, we have used many top brands from Japan and other countries but still observed many spa therapists suffering from hand dermatitis as a result of daily contact with skincare products with ingredients which cause damage to their immunity and skin’s barrier function.
Even though working as professionals in the beauty and wellness industry, when our young children have atopy symptoms, as parents we have to be responsible about what we put on our skin. We deeply felt how much stress could compromise our immunity and lifestyle and thus affected our skin as well as our health.
After serving 7000 customers per year, a weakened immunity is clearly stated in our clinical records. No matter how busy we are, we all need to heal and relieve our stress in a safe way.
In a stressful environment, through our products that are full of energy from Okinawa, we want to help both customers and spa therapists to heal and rejuvenate. This is the reason why UMUI was created and it’s also the brand’s concept: putting in efforts for someone’s benefit.
The soil of Okinawa’s Miyakojima Island has week alkaline from the coral reef and is rich in minerals from sea water. In addition, the ingredients used to produce our UMUI products are extracted from plants that are grown with care by trusted contracted farmers to avoid exposure to contaminants.
We also eliminate additives that tend to cause skin allergy. Recent skincare products focus on preservatives and fragrance, which more likely to damage your skin than improving it. Your feeling of wanting to have beautiful skin is important to us, thus we make it our mission to create safe products that are also effective for you.
The essence we use in all of our UMUI products is extracted from the vitality hidden in the bidens pilosa plants cultivated by farmers with the nature (sun, water, soil, air) that Miyakojima Island is blessed with. Bidens pilosa is called tachiawayuki sendangusa in Japanese and koshirono sendangusa extract for cosmetic ingredient labelling.
Numerous published practical science articles have mentioned that bidens pilosa has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-allergy functions. These effects contribute to over 70% improvement in atopy, advance fibroblast activity and restraint formation of melanin. With bidens pilosa as the main ingredient, our products can be used with confidence no matter what skin concern you have: slow skin regeneration, fluctuating skin condition, weakened skin’s barrier function.
