Our Story

Yoshimomo Botanique is an artisan line of innovative, high-performance, natural skin care based in New York City. We create clean formulations incorporating only the purest ingredients from organic, EcoCert, wild-crafted, and natural origins with advanced skin technology to deliver high quality, innovative products for consumers looking for safe, effective, cutting-edge skincare.

OUR INGREDIENTS

Our ingredients are carefully sourced from all parts of the world under stringent quality standards to ensure the plants our raw materials originate from are not sprayed or chemically treated, are ethically and sustainably harvested, and are distilled or extracted without the use of chemical solvents or toxins.

Yoshimomo products never contain synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, GMO, Parabens, SLS, alcohol, or animal-derived ingredients. We respect international cosmetic standards by keeping our products free of Butylparaben, formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasers, Hydroquinone, petroleum and petroleum distillates, Phenoxyethanol, phthalates, talc, Triclosan, and animal-tested ingredients.

Yoshimomo is certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies Program and certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny. We have made a voluntary pledge to clear animal testing from all stages of our product development. Our ingredient suppliers have made the same pledge and the result is a product guaranteed to be 100 percent free of animal testing.

OUR FORMULATIONS

Our products are formulated to respect, restore, and strengthen our body’s largest and most visible organ - the skin. Each ingredient in each of our formulations is chosen at the optimal concentration to work in synergy with all other components to ensure our products deliver the highest potency, highest absorption level, and highest benefit to the skin.

Yoshimomo formulations are preserved against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, fungi and yeast with non-irritating, non-sensitizing, plant-based alternatives to traditional cosmetic preservatives that are globally accepted for use as preservatives in Certified Organic Cosmetics. Our broad-spectrum preservation system is compliant with EcoCert, European REACH regulations, the Japanese Ministry of Health & Welfare, and has been granted GRAS Status by the FDA.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Yoshimomo is committed to producing high-performance natural skin care which delivers results you can see and feel.

We started out the same way we remain today - carefully formulated products, crafted by hand in small batches, packaged, and shipped - all from our own laboratory. As the manufacturer and retailer of our own products, our company has eliminated any “middle man” expenses so that we can pass down our affordable prices to our consumers without sacrificing quality. We firmly believe that the process of producing is part of the pleasure of creation and wouldn’t have it any other way.

If you've made a conscious decision to care for your skin naturally, you don't have to sacrifice quality results. We believe that our customers are a lot like us. We want to feel good about the products we purchase, and we want the products we purchase to work. We believe that our products not only perform better, they are better - ethically, aesthetically, environmentally. All of which helps you make a conscious decision about the way you care for your skin, your wellbeing, your world.
