history

when working as a make-up artist in Hollywood in the late 1950's, Shu Uemura came across a fantastic facial cleanser. called "magic oil", it restored the natural beauty of the actresses' skin, which had been exposed to harsh conditions such as theater make-up, intense lighting and long hours of filming. it was Shu Uemura who introduced the first oil cleanser to Japan by launching "unmask cleansing beauty oil" in 1967, which became the origin of shu uemura's cleansing oil. since then, the brand has been pursuing the best "magic oil", continuously incorporating innovative technologies. today, shu uemura's cleansing oils are widely recognized as the best* across the world. 1 bottle is sold every 7 seconds.
