The owner, Michiyo Ishiwatari wished, “to deliver the colors and scents of Okinawa to more and more people…” She has realized her wish in the form of her cosmetics line and they’re available at her shop. Her lotions and massage oils are popular items for the relaxing effects of the ginger lily or rosemary scents.



We also recommend the variety of soaps available at FROMO, made with uniquely Okinawan ingredients like hibiscus, sea salt, honey, Ukon turmeric, and Yomogi mugwort. Even if you have sensitive skin, try out their products since they contain no synthetic colorings or fragrances, and without any preservatives. Using soap that’s a little more luxurious than usual will certainly enhance your bath time.
