Products Quality links closely to the Company's heart. Customers' viewpoint always comes first.
We think “Quality” represents “the heart (core spirit) of the company”.
We take “Pueraria Mirifica” that we use in supplements and body gels as an example to demonstrate this.
Natural Plants only chooses genuine wild Pueraria Mirifica that had attained certain standards. To manufacture products of high quality, we carefully analyze different ingredients. Despite most Pueraria Mirifica products sold in Japan being rather costly, our products are at relatively lower prices. This does not mean we are playing tricks to cut the corners, but we paid effort to reduce various costs in-between, from purchasing of raw materials to distribution of products to the markets to make the reasonable price possible.
Thinking of "Quality=Company", if the products are not good enough, not designed with deep thoughts, in perplexing design without clear message conveyed, it is nearly impossible for the company to have a good reputation and brand image. "Quality" represents the attitude and heart of a company with its perseverance in striving for better quality. During our routine work of research and product planning, we link the intangible "heart" and "quality" together as one. Customers are always in the first priority that we concern about. We aim at producing the products that customers would be satisfied and feel relieved to continue using our products without any worries. our customers would feel like using our products again when they receive them. In order to achieve this target, we strive to produce high quality products continuously.

Ancient Plants of Japan (the Honzo Emaki picture scroll)We pay special attention to ancient plants in Japan as stated in the Edo era’s book on herbs, “Yamato Honzo” written by Kaibara Ekken in 1709. We get the inspiration from the traditional way of using plants, and create our own recipes.
Recently, beauty and health treatments make use of methods such as aromatherapy, using plants as the main body. In fact, the wisdom lies in plants was highly treasured by ancient Japanese, and so shall we. The clear-cut four seasons in Japan brings different varieties of plants, and they have unlimited energy.

Cropure Cupuassu, a kind of Cacao, is a plant from the Amazon, the nature’s treasure. The seeds can be used to produce better chocolates than normal Cacao. We introduce plant-origin raw materials which were not popular for use in cosmetics, and reproduce them into products.
Southeast Asian Plants (wild Pueraria Mirifica)Well-known as the raw material of supplements, Pueraria Mirifica is a tuberous herbal root belonging to the Pueraria Genus of the Fabaceae Family and is grown in the deciduous forests of northern Thailand. It is alternatively called the “white Kwao Krua”. As isoflavones become the center of attention due to foods such as soya milk and natto, Pueraria Mirifica contains more isoflavones than soya beans.
We conducted research on how to add this raw material to cosmetic products. After spending over 6 months on experiments, we have successfully invented a unique way of extraction to produce high-quality extracts.
Natural Plants devotes in researches on plants that are already used in supplements but not cosmetics, and reproduce them into cosmetic products.
Fruits water (Real juices of fruits)We do not use ethanol for extraction. Instead, we directly extract the liquid content of fruits.
Our fruits water is made by flash distillation. In a special condensation device, the liquid contents in fruits first evaporate and the ingredients of fruits condense. To preserve the important constituents of fruits (nutrients), it is only heated for a few seconds. After, we perform consecutive filtration through cellophane membranes without adding any chemicals, producing fruits liquid extracts with the maximum amount of natural ingredients. This kind of fruits water is different from others made of extractions and essences, and brings a fresh sensation when applied.
