Shodai Face Wash


Shodai Face Wash


Our signature face wash, blended with hiba (Japanese Cypress tree) oil, green tea, onsen water and sake. Cleanly removes oil and dirt without over-exfoliating. Designed for everyday use, it pairs nicely with our face moisturizer (you saw that one coming).

The natural hiba oil gives the product a light, refreshing, woody scent, somewhat similar to cedar.

150ml / 5.07 fl oz

  1. :

    The Shodai face wash is an outstanding product! It thoroughly cleans and refreshes my face, without feeling soapy or astringent. The scent has a very subtle woody / pine note that is pleasant, but not at all perfumey…. if that’s a thing. A little bit goes a long way, with an amount about the size of a pea (or better yet, an edamame) lathering up nicely to cover my face and forehead. Thanks! Looking forward to more products in the future.

  2. :

    Shodai is the most balanced face wash I have ever used. It leaves my skin cleansed and conditioned without excess shine or oiliness. The rich texture of the cleanser and its woody scent are sensual, the latter being utterly unique. Truly exceptional. Bravo!
