In Japan it’s been known for many years that sake brewers, despite their manual labor, have skin that’s soft and moist. That’s because the amino acids in the fermentation and brewery process act as natural moisturizers that deliver deep hydration to the skin.

cotte: a brand of skincare products made from sake

The Hakkaisan Brewery, nestled deep in Niigata Prefecture, has harnessed their knowledge of fermentation and brewery to create Cotte, a unique brand of skincare products that are infused with the same carefully-selected ingredients that go into their world-renown sake.

If you’re a sake drinker perhaps you’ve heard of the Hakkaisan Brewery. With almost 100 years of history they’ve operated out of the Uonuma region of Niigata, known for its rice and its water. Both are vital ingredients to making sake and, as it turns out, is what makes their line of skincare products so special.

After testing their products in Japan we fell in love with everything about the product: its quality, its packaging and its story. So we teamed up with the awesome people at Cotte because we thought you would like their products as much as we do! For now we’re offering their shampoo & treatment set, an adorable traveler’s kit, mini hand creams and face masks. The best part: you don’t have to be 21 to use their products!
