Awaken the skin's ability with the selection of botanical extracts and latest technology that work hand in hand for a silver screen complexion.
Created to fulfill a personal skin care need for a high performing natural line that nourishes and protects the skin from dryness, environmental stresses and long days filming on set, actress Ai Saotome created Koh Gen Do in 1986.
Koh Gen Do - A cosmetic line with silver screen roots
Long days on TV and movie sets combined with dry skin led actress Ai Saotome to create her own cosmetics line. She desired a high quality makeup and skincare line with products made from natural ingredients. Koh Gen Do was born in 1986 and is still going strong after making its first appearance in a small salon in Tokyo.
Nature and science come together to create Koh Gen Do
With several thousand raw ingredients available for cosmetic use, Koh Gen Do refuses to perform animal testing on its products. The company instead uses plant extracts and other ingredients from nature to create high-quality cosmetics. Not only does the company respect animals, but it highly regards skin as well. Koh Gen Do uses no artificial fragrances, petroleum-based mineral oil or synthetic pigments.
Koh Gen Do's philosophy is to help women feel confident with both their inner and outer beauty - skin, body and spirit. Beauty is not supposed to be superficial - it's meant to help inspire women to become leading ladies their own lives, even if they don't live in Hollywood.
