Black Paint® | Natural & Organic

Our Origins

Black Paint was founded by Miyuki Maeda in the year 1998. Miyuki Maeda’s daughter was diagnosed with a serious “incurable” kidney disease, causing her outlook on life to change forever. With that, she studied modern physiology and bacteriology, as well as traditional natural healing systems from around the world.

When she learnt about beneficial bacteria, she saw the light. Bacteria that lived symbiotically in our bodies are essential to our physical functions, from digesting nutrients to protecting us against diseases. She realized that instead of killing those bacteria, we should nourish them so they can do their job.

Finally, she successfully found her “personal health study”, and knew that she had to share the benefits of her hard-non wisdom with the world. Thanks to her determination to never stop fighting for her daughter’s well-being, Black Paint was founded.

Our Belief

We believe that bacteria on the skin is as important as the digestive bacteria. While most skincare products aim to sterilise the skin with anti-bacterials, anti-fungals and synthetic preservatives, Black Paint is formulated to nourish and protect the bacteria that maintain beautiful skin naturally.

With the beliefs kept in mind, Black Paint uses more than 100 types of plant oils, more than 50 types of essential oils and Kishu Bichotan Charcoal that are suitable for various skin and body parts. This led Black Paint to achieve 6 consecutive Grand Gold Medal of Monde Selection Award winner. This award is globally renowned award run by International Institute for Quality Selections, Belgium that evaluate quality of each product and grant them the quality label.
